Very different product
April 17, 2012
I bought this after reading some peoples initial thoughts and the description and figured I would give it a try. It is a very different product thats for sure. First, I am very used to the long working times of other polishes (Especially Menzerna) which allow to me really work the panel and remove as much as I can by adjusting passes and speeds of the polisher. Then comes along Fixer. I have tried this on several paints, from german hards to japanese softs. It acts the same way and I find it is just not to my liking. The biggest complaint with this polish is the working time. Using a rotary polisher, all I got out of it was two passes and it was almost completely gone off the paint, and that was working it at 1200 RPM. I decided I did not have enough, so I put a bit more on the pad and tried again with the same result. Again, this time I lowered the speed to 1000 RPM and the same issue. Now, if it was correcting a ton in this short of time, I would not be upset, but rather excited as polishing would take way less time to finish. But it was not correcting as much as I had hoped. In the end, however, I found this makes a fantastic hand polish. The short working times and lack of need for high speed makes this a great manual polish for those spaces a machine will not reach. in the end, for very light correction, this works, but for the big work, you can't beat a proper compound like M105 or Power Gloss.
Pros:Works great for hand polishing Low speed polishing Ability to adjust from a heavier cut to a finishing polish with a pad change
Cons:Working times very short Lack of cut on harder clears
