Generally used to remove wet sanding scratches (600-1000 grit) from mold surfaces. Removes wax and styrene buildup from mold surfaces. Spread #1102 Step One Mold Polish on the surface to be compounded with a brush or cloth, several square feet at a time—using one-half the normal amount—and mist the surface with water. Immediately machine buff with a clean, damp compounding pad (such as our #1104-A lambs wool buffing pad ). For best results, use machine buffers that generate at least 2500 rpm. Repeat the process to eliminate scratches from exceptionally hard surfaces. Should the compound become dry while being buffed, re-wet again by misting the surface with water. Follow with part #1103 Step Two Mold Polish for the ultimate shine.
