BLACKFIRE Scratch Resistant Clear Finishing Polish uses nano abrasives to remove 2,500-3,000 grit sanding marks on fresh paints and to correct mild imperfections on cured paints. These fine abrasives burnish the finish to an incredible gloss! BLACKFIRE Scratch Resistant Clear Finishing Polish can be used to refine the paint after compounding or as a one-step shine enhancing polish.
BLACKFIRE SRC Finishing Polish can be applied by hand or with a machine. A FLEX XC 3401 VRG is shown here.
In 2005, Mercedes Benz started using a nano, ceramic particle, clear coat and in 2006 domestic automakers started using a super-hard, scratch-resistant clear coat developed by both PPG and BASF. These new clear coats are scratch-resistant, not scratch proof. They can still be scratched and spotted. The problem is polishing, or removing defects, in these new, super-hard clear coats. Conventional polishes may not have the cutting power to remove swirls, spots and defects in these new coatings.
To stay on top of paint innovations, BLACKFIRE incorporated cutting edge German abrasives to develop a compound and polish to remove defects in the new nano ceramic particle clear coats. This new breed of polishes is currently used at the OEM level in various auto manufacturing plants worldwide and they are considered within the polishing industry to be the most advanced polishes in the world.
The result of the this German-American collaboration is BLACKFIRE Scratch Resistant Clear Finishing Polish. This formula offers the do-it-yourself, enthusiast the ability to create a truly eye-popping shine! It restores gloss to ceramic particle clear coats, scratch resistant clear coats, as well as in more traditional single stage and two stage paint systems.
