Chemical Guys Hex Logic Medium/Heavy Cutting Pad Orange 6.5" (Single Pad)
Start with the Orange Hex-Logic pad and V36 Cutting Polish to remove swirls, scratches, oxidation, water spot etching, and other defects from painted finishes. Paint correction uses abrasive compounds and machine polishers to remove “dead” layers of paint. This process reveals the fresh scratch-free paint underneath, and improves clarity and depth of reflection. It’s better to remove the minimal amount of paint for desired results than to remove too much at once because paint doesn’t grow back. Why hammer a nail with a sledgehammer if a tack hammer works fine? If a detailer makes a mistake with a heavier compound and takes off too much paint, they may be forced to repaint the damaged panel. Chemical Guys recommends first polishing a small test spot with the least aggressive cutting pad and cutting compound to test for desired results. The Orange Hex-Logic pad is the least aggressive cutting pad and safer for paint. After polishing a 2’ x 2’ test spot, check for desired results. If enough defects are removed, continue polishing the work area, then switch to a finishing polish on White Hex-Logic pad if needed. Better to be safe than owe a customer a paint job! Start polishing jobs off with the Orange Hex-Logic pad.
