Foam backed sanding discs
Wet sanding defects and texture levelling your paint is often the only way to get the results you need!
Heavy Cut compounds and pads can sometimes only remove defects to a certain degree.
The answer to quickly and safely removing heavy scratching and orange peel texture levelling is with fine abrasive discs attached on electrical or air powered Dual Action Machines.
Although taking sand paper to your paint is often daunting we can help by providing you with some tips and techniques to minimise the risk of burning or removing too much paint!
These Foam backed sanding discs come in a selection of grits and sizes that will help you achieve mirror like results.
Simply attach the desired sanding disc to your air or electric Dual Action Polisher and mist the surface of the paint and pad with clean water using a fine mist sprayer.
On low/medium speed start to abrade the surface in a slow cross hatching technique until a slight milky substance appears. This is the Clear Coat being removed. Dry the surface and inspect the surface. The surface should be hazey with no gloss spots.
Continue to abrade the surface taking into consideration the how much clear you have removed. The use of a Paint Thickness Gauge will assist in measurement.
For quicker defect removal use 2000/3000 grits. For Fine defects, removing 2000/3000 grit scratches and blending use 4000 Grit to follow up.
Follow any of these steps with a Heavy Cut Compound on a Machine Polisher and continue with paint correction to full gloss.
Note: Always keep your Discs clean by blowing them out with compressed air or washing with a steady stream of water. Residue that is collected in sanding discs is clear coat residue. Always work clean and keep your moisture levels high to assist in even and consistent results.
