One Step 250ml
- Product Type:
- All-in-one Compound
- Product Code:
The ultimate one step cutting compound with the cut level of a medium/coarse compound that finishes down to a near perfect finish. Developed specifically for use by dual action polisher, the one-step compound enables you to restore paintwork and remove swirls in one easy step.
One Step works by utilising active diminishing abrasives to cover a wider range of cut than a traditional compound. These abrasives are designed to break down as you work them through, starting as coarse/medium cutting particles and fracturing into smaller and smaller refining particles. This enables One Step to cycle through all the stages of compound cutting, polishing and refining without the need to change products (or pads) along the way. A real game changer for enthusiasts and professionals alike.
First, you’ll need to ensure the vehicle is thoroughly clean and free from contaminates. Perform a comprehensive wash and decontamination, before drying completely.
Mask up any rubber, plastic trim or window surrounds.
After attaching to a DPX Dual Action Polisher, lubricate a Revitalise No:2 Pad (medium foam) with a spritz of Pad Prime, and then apply 2-3 pea sized drops of One Step.
Set your DPX to the no.1 speed setting, apply to the paintwork and make a quick pass over an approximate 2ft square area. This will ensure an even spread of compound.
Now set the DPX to speed no.4 and begin to work in. It’s best to use a crosshatch motion (snake downwards over the area left to right, and then right to left) with a light amount of downward pressure. Make two slow, overlapping passes of the entire area, working for around 5-minutes until the product turns clear.
Remove the pad and clean away any excess product with a brush or compressed air.
Return to the panel, set your DPX to speed setting no.3, and repeat the process for another two passes. This will ensure that the compound fully breaks down.
Buff away the One Step to reveal the final finish. This is the true finish as One Step contains no fillers.
For best results, check with a light source and repeat if necessary.
Do you have to use One Step with a machine polisher?
I'm finding One Step a little difficult to buff off, what do I do?
It is likely that you haven't worked the product in for long enough. We recommend working One Step in for around 1-2 minutes on each section.You should be able to remove any polish residue from the paintwork with Finale.
