Griot's medium intensity polish removes swirls without creating new ones.
Griot's Garage Machine Polish 1 is an medium grade swirl remover for moderate to severe paint imperfections. Designed to be used with an orbital polisher, Griot's Garage Machine Polish 1 breaks down under less pressure so it doesn't create any new swirls. Griot's Garage Machine Polish 1 is a safer way to remove swirls and scratches.
Griot's Garage Machine Polish 1 is part of Griot's four step polishing system.
Griot's machine polishes are different from most swirl removers. They are created specifically for a random orbital polisher (unlike other polishes that are created for rotary buffers) where the friction and temperature on the paint is almost non-existent. Griot's polishing granules are engineered to break down under light pressure, getting smaller and smaller as you use the polish.
Griot's unique chemistry also does away with 50% of the old solvents, allowing you to clean up with water! No other polish does that.
Griot's Garage Machine Polishes are safe and effective at removing swirl marks and scratches from all painted surfaces. Use Machine Polish 1 on heavy swirls and oxidation that could not be removed with Machine Polish 2 or 3. Then follow up with Machine Polish 3 as a finishing polish. Machine Polish 4 is Griot's very finest polish and should be used on like-new finishes or on dark paints.
Griot's Garage Machine Polish 1 is designed to remove paint imperfections while protecting the paint from excess friction. Unlike a compound, Griot's Garage Machine Polish 1 finishes smoother with only a light haze, if any. It requires very little polishing to restore the paint to showroom perfection.
Apply Griot's Machine Polish 1 with the Griot's Orange Polishing Pad to remove moderate swirls and scratches.
Use the Griot's Garage Orbital Polisher to apply Machine Polish 1.
Griot's Garage Machine Polish 1 should be applied with a dual action orbital polisher, like Griot's Garage 6 inch Random Orbital Polisher, using a 6 inch Orange Polishing Pad.
