What is it?
Taken from the Sonax official website: Specially developed for the one step polishing of localised sanded paintwork defects such as dust inclusions or paint runs. Special nano abrasives enable effective scratch removal with optimum shine and without inducing holograms or buffing marks on the paintwork. Removes sanding marks up to grit size P2000.
How we Tested it?
As a professional car detailing service, the need for one step polishing is great. Certain vehicles arrive with moderate defects and do not require heavy cut while others may be on a short time scale, needing to turn the vehicle around in a day or little more. We were very intrigued therefore by Sonax's claims of a 4/6 for cut and a 6/6 for gloss finish. We have tested Sonax Perfect Finish on a range of paint hardness from ultra-soft Japanese paint to notoriously hard darker German paints. The product has also been tested on pads from heavy cut through to finishing pads on Dual Action and Large Throw random orbital machines.
We Didn't like:
Once you learn that you need multiple pads of each type and to regularly clean the pad surface, you are left with a product that really is faultless. The product goes above and beyond that which is expected in terms of cut for a one step product and genuinely astounded us. As a one-step product and an ideal product to prepare new vehicles for a ceramic coating or similar, we are yet to find better. An essential product for any professional detailer.
