This is an awesome silica primer polish; the carpro site itself gives a load of info on it too. I like using it as it does not dust, wipes off very easily, can be used in the sun (around 180 degrees surface temp should you be a little careful), good gloss, and lasts up to a year. The only con is that it doesn't repel water so it does need to be topped, but you can use it before coatings or regular sealants. All of the pros make the one little con of this product seem like nothing. You'll love this product like many others do

Overall it worked well. Used it on a red 2001 Corvette. Clearcoat was extremely hard and the paint was pretty beat up. Pairing this with a Meguiar's microfiber cutting pad and a Rupes 21, I was able to get a decent working time out of it and remove 95% of the scratches, the other 5% would likely require sanding. I found that it works best on a middle speed, took a little longer to remove the defects but the pad didn't mat down the fibers as quickly. Finished off with a CarPro Gloss pad and then topped with cQuartz.

This is now one of my go to polish for soft paint finishes, it's easy to work with, no dusting, and the results are stunning.No more m205 for this guy!

I've been using Essence for a couple weeks now. Trying different pad combinations, machine speeds, machines, exc. Overall... WOW this is one amazing product. First off it makes an excellent one step polish. It has great cutting ability that finishes down perfectly. Paired with a meguiars microfiber finishing pad on the Rupes 21 I was able to remove pretty heavy swirling and the end result was lsp ready. Using it as a finishing polish after m105, on the Rupes, with LC HD red pad and LC blue or white polishing pad the levels of gloss are amazing. Topping this with Reload gives a super hydrophobic effect that will last for atleast 6 months. Best part is no Eraser/ IPA wipe down is needed as long as the paint got warm enough for the oils to break down. Rotary user? No problem I paired essence with a lake country 5.5 inch orange polishing pad on my makita 9227c, had an excellent level of cut and looked amazing with no marring or holograms present. Overall I don't believe I have any cons to this product so far, if you are on the fence.. Buy it, try it with different combinations and you will find your new favorite finishing polish. I know I have!!

Used Essence for the first time today on the mostly original enamel finish of a 1972 Dodge Dart. I used it outside in temperatures of around 60 degrees. Followed the label cautions about wearing eye protection, gloves and a mask. This finish did not need correction as that had been accomplished a few months ago using a rotary polisher and the car had simply been sitting since then because of some mechanical issues. So, Essence was applied by hand. It seemed easy to work with and it is indeed a gloss enhancer. I am quite impressed. The original plan was to follow the application of Essence with a coating but I am now reconsidering that. The car is going into inside storage for the Winter. I may simply leave Essence in place without a coating and see how things look in Spring.
