Professional polishing and sealing of automotive coatings
Menzerna automotive coating polish for treatment, matching surfaces, protection and care
The sensitive automotive coating with a thickness of just a few µm, also known as the clear coat, is exposed to numerous external influences. Adhering dirt in combination with rain and the air stream while driving acts like sandpaper and scratches the automotive coating. Signs of use on door handles or from brushes used for washing make the automotive coating appear unattractive. Professional Menzerna automotive coating polish protects and lends a flawless gloss. Effective sealing of automotive coatings with polishing systems from Menzerna.
What happens during automotive coating care?
A scratched or worn automotive coating is not glossy because the surface is rough. Incident light cannot be reflected. This makes the automotive coating appear matt to the eye. For the removal of deep automotive coating scratches, the automotive coating is sanded before polishing. The rough clear coat surface is levelled, material is removed. Since the clear coat layer only has a thickness of a few µm, the treatment of automotive coatings is a finite process. After the sanding process, the gloss level of the matt sanding area is matched with the surrounding automotive coating by means of polishing. The automotive coating is touched up by mechanically levelling the surface. However, virtually no material is removed from the surface during automotive coating treatment. The smooth surface is better able to reflect light. A glossy coating surface is perceived by the viewer. In case of minor damage, sanding is omitted and only polishing is used. Various gloss levels up to a show car finish can be produced with Menzerna automotive coating polish.
Premium automotive coating polish without silicon and fillers
Polishing of typical automotive coating defects
Typical automotive coating defects that are removed by polishing in the course of automotive coating treatment are holograms, streaks, polishing shadows, micro-scratches and signs of use. Workshops and vehicle paint shops adapt blended areas and remove overspray, varnish runs and varnish tears. Menzerna automotive coating polish supports efficient processing and the sparing use of material in commercial applications. No silicone or filler is used, so the polishing result is genuine and long-lasting. The right combination of pad, machine and polish is used for mechanical surface processing. Vehicle manufacturers polish the automotive coating directly in the production line after the paint booth. High-performance automotive coating polish from Menzerna is used after isolated defects have been sanded. These defects mainly consist of dust inclusions. Corresponding areas are quickly adapted to the remainder of the surface.
What scratches can be polished out with automotive coating polish?
When polishing automotive coatings, only the colourless, transparent clear coat layer with a thickness of just 30-55 µm is polished. The base coat below that produces the colour and effects (such as a metallic effect). However, an automotive coating polish can only be used where scratches do not go through the clear coat layer. If the scratch is deeper and extends into layers below that, a repair with subsequent re-coating is required. Then the automotive coating polish is used subsequently to adapt the blended areas to adjacent surfaces. Automotive coating sealant as a final step protects the polishing result against external influences.
