Cut & Polish

Cut & Polish – There are many products available for those looking to cut and polish a car, however it is the process that is fairly complex, and therefore, most often performed incorrectly when done without an expert.

The reason a cut and polish is necessary is due to foreign particles such as animal droppings, dirt, tree sap, oil, exhaust contaminants, and other impurities attacking the paint on a vehicle. Combine those with the harsh Australian climate and it is not uncommon that most vehicles, even ones only a few years old, can benefit from a professional cut and polish.


The first step of a professional cut and polish is removing foreign particles from the paint. This cannot be done with a simple car wash, and special chemicals are used for this step.


The second step is compounding.  Compounds are miniscule abrasive elements that essentially buff the paint improving the appearance of dull, scratched and oxidised spots. This leaves the car ready for polishing.


The third step is polishing which deeply cleanses the paint by removing oxidation, scratches, spotting, old wax, swirl marks and other minor paint defects.  The best polishing results are achieved by using an orbital buffer rather than by hand. Polishes have a cutting ability, however they are generally much smoother than compounds.


The last step of a cut and polish is waxing of which there are many types of waxes. Waxing provides a protective barrier between the finish and the environment. Ultimately, your car looks better because more light reflects from the surface resulting in a high gloss finish.

A professional Cut & Polish can add value to your vehicle as well as help protect your paint for longer, so don’t delay it any longer.
