Sub-micron, uniform particle size ensures fast, consistent, low swirl cutting and polishing.
P1 Nano Polish is cutting edge abrasive technology in a bottle. By utilizing nano-structural composite material to create incredibly uniform microscopic abrasive particles, the chemist at Gtechniq have created a polish like nothing else on the market. There are three primary benefits to this type of abrasive technology.
1. Quality of finish What you see is what you get
With P1 Nano Polish, the results you see after wipe-off are the results you get! That's because the abrasive particles have a rounding effect when they cut, not a scouring effect like conventional abrasives. With conventional compounds and polishes the abrasives leave swirls and scratches behind that are then masked by polishing oils and fillers creating the illusion of a swirl-free finish.
2. Minimal Polishing Oils
Polishing oils are beneficial when they are used to lubricate the surface during the abrading process, but overuse is common in the industry. Many products use polishing oils to fill or mask the swirls and scratches left by conventional abrasives. Because P1 Nano Polish uses microscopic uniform abrasive particles at the nanoscopic scale, fewer polishing oils are required for the abrading action. Using fewer polishing oils decrease the chance of swirls being masked or camouflaged.
Limited use of polishing oils also means a higher concentration of abrasives in the formula, so less product is needed. Unlike polishes containing diminishing organic abrasives, P1 Nano Composite Polish's abrasive particles are created from nano-structured composite materials that cut evenly throughout the buffing cycle. This means the abrasives work just as well at the start of the buffing cycle as they do at the end of the buffing cycle.
3. Less heat build-up
P1 Nano Polish creates less heat than conventional compounds and polishes due to the microscopic size and uniformity of the composite abrasive particles. Heat is an unwanted side-effect in the compounding and polishing process because it increases the risk of burning through or twisting the paint. P1 Nano Polish generally maintains surface temperatures in the 90 to 100 degree range.
P1 Nano Polish is capable of removing 1000 grit sanding marks when used with a wool cutting pad. When used with a soft foam finishing pad, it finishes like a fine polish.
Removes less paint
The rounding effect from the nano-structured composite abrasive particles is less aggressive than conventional polishes. As result P1 Nano Polish effectively removes defects while removing less paint overall.
P1 Nano Polish is water soluble and body shop safe. Any residue or excess product in cracks and crevices can be easily washed away with car wash soap. P1 Nano Polish will not stain trim.
Can be used by hand
The highly versatile abrasive technology found in P1 Nano Polish is also effective when applied by hand. This is especially useful in tight, intricate areas or on thin, small panels that are difficult or impossible to safely polish by machine. Conventional abrasive products can leave scratches and scouring behind that are then masked by polishing oils and fillers. This gives the appearance of good results when defects have actually only been temporarily filled. P1 Nano Polish removes defects without masking so the results you see are in fact the results you get.
