From The Label

Product Description

UNO PROTECT is a proprietary blend of natural waxes, cross-linking polymers and modern abrasives formulated in-house by RUPES. This true all-in-one product is designed to provide fast correction of moderate to fine defects on painted surfaces while leaving a high-quality finish and durable polymer protection in just one step. Unlike traditional one-step products that rely heavily on natural waxes for protection, UNO PROTECT utilizes the latest chemistry in cross-linking polymers to provide up to 90 days of protection and high gloss shine. Ideal for express detail services, high-volume detailing operations, car dealerships, or anyone looking for a fast and easy-to-use solution to polish and protect in a single step.

UNO PROTECT is universally compatible with all machine types and can be safely used on any non-porous exterior surface with excellent results, including single-stage lacquer paint, clear coat, and gel coat. The performance of UNO PROTECT can be tuned simply by adjusting the choice of pad material. UNO PROTECT is compatible with foam, wool, and microfiber pads depending on the desired level of cut and finish.

Directions

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Shake well before use.
  2. Select pad type based on the desired level of defect removal and finish quality.
  3. Prime pad by applying UNO PROTECT evenly to the pad face in a thin, even coating.
  4. Work the product in a section approximately 6x the size of the polishing pad being used applying light to moderate pressure.
  5. Allow the product a few moments to set up then wipe away residues with a clean, soft microfiber towel.

I have been using this product the past few days and am impressed. I first saw it at SEMA and although the product does not seem to have as much correction capability as Rupes stated there; it is still really great. The correction capability is pretty good for an AIO but I do not see it removing anything more than 3000 grit. I used it with Rupes yellow foam, Rupes yellow wool, Lake Country HDO orange, and Lake country foamed wool on a variety of machines like the lhr21mk3 with shaved down 6in backing plate, Rupes LHR19 rotary, Nano, and Adams 3in DA. It seemed to go best with the Rupes wool and LC HDO pads on the DA, just to much sling for me on the rotary which I take partial responsibility for! If the protection holds up to the claimed duration then this would be a great product to try for anyone seeking a fairly priced AIO that works well. It has a fairly watery consistency so be cautious of sling. Will be buying again!

RUPES UNO Protect is an absolute must have! This is especially true if you are a professional detailer. My experience with this product is completely mind blowing. Here's why.

To begin, the scent of the product is mesmerizing. I can't seem to formulate the right words for it. So we'll just leave it at that. Once shaken up thoroughly, the product pours out on the liquidity side of things, but that is to be expected with an all-in-one polish.

I had the pleasure to try this with RUPES Fine Yellow Foam Polishing Pad first. After about 4-6 passes with normal to slow arm speed, about 70% to 80% of the defects were removed.

After my first test spot, I moved on to a different section of the panel. All other factors remained the same. The only difference was I had selected RUPES Medium Wool Polishing Pad for the next round...and voila! Up to 90% of defects were removed this time.

By the way, the test subject is my 2008 Subaru Forester Sport in World Rally Blue. And the last combination of product and pads finish down to an excellent finish using my LHR15 III.

Either way...bottomline:

Impressed? YES!

Once I had my processed dialed in, I completely an entire half of the panel (hood) before I wiped off the residue. Then I proceeded with the remainder. Wipe off is a dream! Additionally, the slickness is off the chart.

What water beading? The sheeting is so impressive that it left very little water behind. But I am sure that if there were actually water beading properties that it would also be jaw dropping.

Needless to say, this product is a keeper and my new favorite all-in-one. Hence, the length of this review. I hope this helps you out if you are considering purchasing this product. You won't be disappointed!
