Product Description

The Chemical Guys V36 Optical Grade Cutting Polish is an ultra refined cutting polish designed to remove imperfections and leave behind a great deal of clarity! V36 is water based and capable of removing 2000 - 2500 grit sanding marks, swirls, holograms, light scratches and other imperfections with ease. We recommend using a white pad on a buffer or by hand. With only a few passes per section you will be amazed at the optical clarity that is left behind. The high end formula does not include any oils, silicone or fillers, so you know the results you are seeing are truly there, nothing is covered or filled in! On some paint types you will not need to follow V36 up with another polishing step, however if you want to jewel or fine polish the paint even further, the V38 and a blue or black pad is highly recommended. If you have heavier imperfections, V34 is a great polish to use. If you are looking for a great one step polish to remove imperfections and finish down the paint great, the Chemical Guys V36 Optical Grade Cutting Polish is a great choice!

I own the set of chemical guys products as I purchased it with the TORQ-TORQX polisher when I first started detailing. Now I'm very educated and have higher quality products and tools. I have M105, M205, D300, Menzerna SF4500, and the complete line-up of Chemical Guys V-line products. I use V36 for the clients that daily drive their vehicles and aren't seeking perfection. It's inexpensive, dusting is minimal and the work time is very long. It doesn't leave any micro marring or anything else which saves me time by not needing to perform a final polish. It's a joy to use it and I reach for it most often out of all of my polishes since my customer's cars are daily driven and they don't have a detailers eye to distinguish a 7.5/10 paint vs a 10/10 paint. I've used it on GM vehicles, Honda, Mercedes, etc. Does the job all the time and my customers are happy. My only complaint is that the bottle likes to trap air in it so it can be hard to squeeze out. You have to shake it up pretty good once its half empty. Use it with an orange foam cutting pad for cars with heavy swirling and just glide the pad over the car on the final passes. It will finish down great. When a car is black and has softer paint, I reach for a white polishing pad. I know it's not Menzerna but give it a try, chances are you'll enjoy it like I do.
