Product Review: Jescar Micro Finishing Polish

by

Meguiar’s 205 is by far my favorite polish (finishing or not) and has been for years.  We normally use Menzerna Final Finish Polish FF 3000 for finish polishing when M205 is a bit too aggressive, but I heard good things about Jescar Micro Finishing Polish and figured I’d try it.  Overall I was very impressed with it…

The Jescar Micro Finishing Polish will help you refine your paint and remove light imperfections with ease! This high-quality formula will help eliminate P3000 grit sanding marks on fresh paint and swirl marks, light oxidation, haze, and other light imperfections that are taking away from the overall look of your paint. Apply 3-4 pea-sized drops to your light polishing pad and work in one section at a time. Using medium pressure move side to side then up and down until the polish breaks down, leaving a clear film over the surface. Wipe away any excess with a clean microfiber towel and stand back to gaze into the deep, optically clear surface you are left with! If you have any heavy imperfections we recommend using the Jescar Heavy Correction Compound first, before following up with the Micro Finish Polish to refine the paint down to perfection. What are you waiting for? Grab a bottle of the Jescar Micro Finishing Polish and bring your paint back to life with ease!

Simply put and as cliche, as it sounds, it does what it says and it does it very well.  While I didn’t specifically use it to remove 3000 grits sanding marks, I used it on multiple paints and in multiple ways… it performed well each and every time.  Here are a few photos showing it after using wool and an aggressive polish on this black truck.

Using only a few drops is important, otherwise it takes a while to break it down and can be hard to wipe off…

Taped off a little section for a half/half shot…

It was very easy to work with and wasn’t too grabby, actually very similar to Menzerna FF3000.  Once broken down the residue is pretty clear and easy to remove…

Here we can clearly see how it removed all the haze leftover by the previous step and brought back shine to the paint.  There are some deeper marks below because this truck was EXTREMELY damaged and owner just wanted to improve it rather than try to make it perfect…

As I said before, this Jescar Micro Finishing Polish did a great job and I liked using it.  There isn’t much to say in terms of application other than to start off with a few drops and don’t use too much, then make sure to break it down well before removing.  Breaking it down properly gives a nicer finish and easier residue removal.

I used it with a Flex XC 3401 VRG and a variety of foam pads, but I feel confident it would perform well with any machine and pad combination.

The only downside is the price, as it’s about 44% more per 32oz bottle than Menzerna Final Finish Polish FF 3000.  That’s a big difference and I don’t think it’s worth the price, but I have not used it long enough to know if it’s better for some paints, etc. so I may be wrong.  Regardless, it’s a great product and performs really well in every scenario I tested it.

    I’ve been using Jescar polishing products for 18 months or so. Some people think Jescar is just a subsidiary of Menzerma, but it’s not. Jescar makes their own products and I think they are superior to Menzerma. I like them because they wipe off easier than Menzerma and have longer work times, the lubricity is just better. I agree the cost is higher, but you get what you pay for, and I would rather pay a little more (catch one of the many sales) and work smarter, not harder.

    How would you compare this to Sonax Perfect Finish regarding finishing down?

    • Neurobit says:

      Sonax is an all in one (starts with a little more cut and finishes nicely w/o any need for finer polish), whereas Jescar is a finishing polish.

      I use SPF when I need a little more initial cut, but still finishes nice w/o any haze. For minor correction or to bring out gloss, then Jescar is all you need.

    • rlmccarty2000 says:

      Very similar. Both are good products, but now there are few bad products. Polishes, to me, are paint dependent. Some work better on soft paint systems (less haze) and some work better on hard paint systems. Also I find the more I use a polish the more I learn how to use said product and it’s characteristics. Pad choice will make a big difference not to mention machine choice.

    I have had great results with Sonax Perfect Finish but my inexperience has occasionally lead to some haze. I was going to try Menzerna 3500 as a final jeweling polish. Would you use the Jescar Micro Finish or Menzerna 3500?
