The Jescar Medium Polish is one product that I wanted to test out as a 1 Stage polishing option; a dedicated polish that can provide a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the paint in one step.
A lot of people will suggest that Jescar and Menzerna produce identical products. With experience using Menzerna Medium Cut Polish (MC 2500), I believe I had a great litmus test to evaluate the performance of this product by Jescar. I believe MC 2500 has a place in our arsenal of polishes, but to be honest I rarely use it. With a level of cut that is not in the realm of a true compound and finish that is not quite on par with most top-level finishing polishes, it falls short in the practicality of use department.
I was most hopeful to see a better or more reliable refinement from Jescar Medium Polish. I want to see if it was a better option as a 1 stage correction. Its ability to finish down was much more practical than whatever loss in cut. I was impressed.
Although this Chevrolet Camaro would not hold up to a Scangrip swirl inspection, I was very impressed with the level of enhancement. Jescar Medium Polish, had a good enough cut with a better than expected finish to greatly enhance the depth and clarity of vehicle that was in average condition.
My tool and pad combination used to polish the car in this picture is the Rupes Duetto with Lake Country Black HDO pads. In my opinion, the HDO pads (black, orange, and blue) are a high quality and a great pad option for long throw polishers.
Like other Jescar and Menzerna polishes, to get optimal results several section passes are necessary. I always worked this product for between 5 to 8 section passes. Because of the long working time, depending on the results (more correction vs. speed/efficiency) you can expand your working area within reason.
Another Way To Use This Product:
If you do not have a paint thickness gauge, just learning about car care, and or looking to greatly enhance your daily driver I may suggest this option. A Two-Step Correction starting with some medium cut pads and then followed by a finishing pad using the same polish. It is a safer and economical way to start out into paint correction. You may also find the finish may be acceptable enough after the cutting pass to not refine further.
