|As close to a compound as you can get!|
Menzerna Intensive Polish defies convention! Intensive Polish is capable of removing 2000 grit sanding scratches, oxidation, compounding swirls and other defects without hazing. Based on its abilities you’d think it’s a compound but, in fact, Menzerna Intensive Polish is just what the name says – a polish on steroids!
Menzerna Intensive Polish may eliminate the need for a compound on oxidized, swirled vehicles. This polish is so safe and effective, you can remove paint flaws with little or no loss of surface gloss. Normally, you would have to compound, follow up with a swirl remover, and then a finishing polish to remove 2000 grit sanding scratches. It would take at least three steps. But with Menzerna Intensive Polish, you can often go straight to wax application after polishing.
Menzerna Intensive Polish leaves very little – if any – haze. The highly concentrated, small abrasives remove the paint flaw through consistent abrasive action. Compounds with large abrasives are practically scoring the paint surrounding the flaw, which causes dullness. The dullness then has to be polished out with smaller abrasives. Menzerna Intensive Polish combines these two steps by gradually leveling the flaw with small, numerous abrasives that break down into a self-refining polish. The surface is left smooth, vibrant, and glossy.
This is one of the most versatile and user-friendly polishes I have ever used. To call it a polish is somewhat misleading because it really falls somewhere between a strong swirl remover and a compound. Yet, it barely dusts and leaves no surface haze on most paints. You can apply it by hand to create a jaw-dropping gloss. Apply Menzerna Intensive Polish with a Porter Cable 7424XP or a rotary buffer to remove swirls, oxidation, water spots, and most scratches. Your application method dictates how this polish performs!
Use Menzerna Intensive Polish on oxidized, dull paint, heavy water spots, swirls, and scratches. Even though the name says polish, by most standards, this is a compound.
Menzerna Intensive Polish can also be used on freshly repainted finishes (once cured) to remove overspray and imperfections. The formula is extremely low-dusting and contains no silicone, waxes, or fillers. It’s perfect for use in a body shop or paint shop. Clean up is quick and easy.
Menzerna Intensive Polish removes paint defects without hazing the finish. Use with a dual action or rotary polisher to achieve the best results.
Menzerna Intensive Polish will remove most paint flaws and, in most cases, you will not need to step up to Menzerna PowerGloss Compound.
Create a high gloss, swirl-free finish with the polish acts like a compound. Menzerna Intensive Polish removes moderate to severe paint imperfections with minimal or no loss of gloss and almost no dusting.
Application by Hand:
Application by Machine:
- Mist the Wolfgang German Polish N Wax Applicator with XMT Pad Conditioner to moisten the foam. Apply a nickel size amount of Menzerna Intensive Polish to the applicator.
- Work in a back and forth, overlapping motion until the area starts to dry. Wipe off the polish with a damp Cobra Microfiber Towel. Work in 2 x 2 sq. ft. sections until the entire vehicle is done.
Note: Applying Menzerna Intensive Polish by hand will enhance gloss but it will not remove swirls or scratches. For paint correction, you must apply this product with a polisher.
- Make sure the surface to be compounded is clean and dry. Fresh paint should be fully cured. Apply Intensive Polish out of direct sunlight.
- Use a wool or foam polishing pad, like Lake Country’s CCS White Polishing Pad or The Edge’s Blue Pad. Apply a 6 inch line of compound to the vehicle. With the polisher turned off, spread the polish over about a 2 x 2 sq. ft. area.
- Polish at 1200-1800 RPM (5000-6000 OPM on a dual action polisher) working slowly across and then up and down the area. Check your work after several passes to see if the defect has been removed. If so, reduce the pressure and continue buffing until a high gloss is achieved. If the pad becomes dry, mist it with water and continue buffing.
- Wipe the area with a damp microfiber cloth.
- If necessary, follow with Menzerna Final Polish to restore optimum gloss.
- Always apply a wax or sealant after compounding or polishing. We recommend Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 to seal in the shine with its long-lasting polymer formula.
