Car Care Tips

For deep damage, apply DX-5 with the blue Extreme Cut Foam Pad equipped on a polishing machine. The abrasive breakdown and pad friction provides maximum leveling that quickly removes deep paint imperfections. Only moderate pressure is needed for professional results, so even a user with little experience can easily correct damage.



Only use on a clean and dry car. For best results, apply Extreme Cut Compound in the shade to a cool paint surface. Dispense enough product to cover a surface of roughly two square feet. With moderate pressure and speed, move the polishing machine in broad, sweeping strokes in a crisscross pattern. Only 5 to 6 passes are required at an average speed for complete correction. Then wipe the surface clean with a microfiber towel.
