Secrets of the correct polishing cars with the help of a polishing machine


When working should be aware of the following aspects:

The cleanliness of the water tank is paramount. The fact is that only a few grains of sand, incidentally on a circle or surface, can irrevocably spoil the result of work by scratching the paintwork;

Wetting the part with water is necessary when the paste dries out too quickly;

Cleaning the polishing wheel - it should be done periodically, as lumps of paste stick to it;

Applying paste - it is not recommended to spread it directly on the circle, it is better to apply the paste on the surface of the part;

Overheating - this is possible when the same place has been polished for too long. This approach leads to excessive heating of the clearcoat (the circle seems to be stuck in it) and even to its “tearing off”;

Stains - they happen if the worker holds the polisher at an angle and the circle does not touch the surface with the whole area;

Rhythm - it is not recommended to immediately turn on the machine at maximum speed. The paste applied to the part must first be rubbed evenly over the surface at low speeds, and only then gradually increase them;

Different pastes - if you need to go from a paste with a large grain to a paste with a smaller one, you need to thoroughly clean the surface of the parts. It is better to change the circle, but if this is not possible, then you can leave the old one, but on condition of its washing in clean water;

The intensity of the machine - it is not recommended to put on it a speed of more than 2500 revolutions per minute - this is fraught with overheating of the coating on the parts. Adjusting the frequency is most convenient on typewriters with dials;

The choice of polishing pads - they can be hard (used to erase orange peel and remove scratches from sandpaper), as well as medium density and soft (give the coating more gloss). Relief products are also on sale, which are also focused on glossing;

Finishing paste - after polishing, it is necessary to put on the surface either a special protective paste or to treat surface with liquid wax.
