AT A GLANCE | SONAX PROFILINE PERFECT FINISH
When it comes to superior abrasive technology, Sonax always sits at the top of my list. In fact, I would say it sits in my top 3. Whether you're looking to achieve some semblance of paint correction or want to introduce an alluring layer of gloss, this is one you really need to try.
Much like any other form of polish or compound, the cut you achieve is entirely dependent on a variety of variables; seasoned detailers, you know of what I speak. The beauty of using Sonax Profiline Perfect Finish is that it works for both the novice and skilled detailer, not to mention being the most forgiving of any light to medium cut polish I've used in recent years.
As per the manufacturer recommendations, a little goes a long way with 3 pea-sized drops being applied to either a yellow microfiber pad by Rupes or some form of a foam finishing pad. At a speed of 4-4.5 on your desired polisher (DA for haze-free results), continue to work in a cross-hatch pattern. Residue left is minimal and provides a true one-step finish leaving behind the look of a finishing polish while still delivering an exceptional cut.
Of course, results will vary so if you intend on making a sizeable reduction in defects, whether they're in the form of light scratches or minor swirls, you can achieve as much as a 75-80% correction. I will say that for vehicles that are completely thrashed into the next dimension, a realistic expectation at slower speeds would hover around the 50-65% mark.
When bridging the gap between using a one-step polish like Sonax Profiline Perfect Finish and other contenders such as Menzerna Medium Cut Polish 2500 or Rupes DA Fine Polishing Compound, Sonax leaves the least amount of dusting behind, thereby almost eliminating any additional clean-up. Below you'll see a representation of what you can achieve on a swirled-out Ford F-150 hood when using Sonax Profiline Perfect Finish and only a few quick passes.
As someone who shies away from AIO"s or any form of a 3-in-1, Sonax will leave you satisfied. All in all, this is one polish that you need in your arsenal, and what's more, the technology and glossifiers in the formula don't cut corners. Trust me, I'm a tough critic and Sonax will be my inseparable friend. Pick yourself up a bottle today and polish away. It's not often I forward a score above an 8, but with Sonax I'll make an exception. Sonax, you most certainly deserve a 9.
