Initial Impressions: Meguiar’s M110 / M210

by

Ultra Pro Speed Compound M110 and Finishing Polish M210

At SEMA 2018, Meguiar’s launched two new innovative polishing liquids, M110 & M210.  These new DA specific advanced polishing liquids utilize SMAT (Super Micro Abrasive Technology) to delivery even and consistent cutting ability over the entire polishing cycle while also producing a low dusting effect. Basically, these abrasives don’t breakdown like diminishing abrasives do. These SMAT abrasives stay consistent over a typical buffing cycle. This allows the user to have some control over the length of a polishing cycle without compromising finishing ability.

Since M110 and M210 were released, I have been testing them in the shop on a few different paint types. Listed below are some of my initial thoughts. I’ll be sure to update you with some additional findings as my testing continues.

M110/M210 Test:

Meguiar’s Ultra Pro Speed Compound M110

Pros:

  • Excellent as a 1 step polishing compound with HDO pad
  • Very low dusting
  • On softer paints had more than enough cut to remove sanding marks, swirls and light scratches
  • Leaves a really nice finish with manageable micro marring
  • Much easier wipe off when comparing to Meguiar’s M100 Pro Speed Compound
  • Long working cycle

Cons:

  • Not quite as much cut as I would have liked ( M100 seemed to have a little bit more cut under the same fixed variables)
  • Has limitations on hard paints with severe defects
  • Price point- M100 is still the best value for money

Meguiar’s Ultra Pro Finishing Polish M210

Pros:

  • Left a high gloss finish on both paints with minimum to no micro marring
  • Very low dusting
  • Long working cycle

Cons:

  • Had cutting ability limitations while using it as a 1 step polish

We had the privilege of interviewing Markus Kleis from Meguiars at SEMA 2018. In this interview, he describes exactly what these new liquids are all about.

    The main question is how do they compare to 105 and 205? Is 105 as good as D300 on microfiber pads? I lean more to DAT compounds like Menz 400 or Jescar Compound but there are times where cutting is more important than finishing, that’s when I go to Meguires.
