3D ACA 520 Finishing Polish is the next evolution product performance and finish quality results for the fine-cut polish category in the body shop and car detailing industry.

Our 3D AAT 502 Finishing Polish was our first finishing polish introduced in 2018 and it’s good… really good. But just like everything in our world is continually changing, Tunch Goren, the owner and head chemist at 3D Products came up with an even better abrasive technology for a new compound, AAC 510 Premium Rubbing Compound and a new polish 3D ACA 520 Finishing Polish.

This new formula requires more time and more complex steps to create the raw materials and process them into the final powder – Alpha Ceramic Alumina or ACA. If you’re new to paint correction chemistry lingo – the word powder refers to the abrasive technology.

Besides the powder, the other important components that result in a compound or polish are the liquids. The liquids are just as important as the powder because it is the liquids that determine how well or how poorly the powder performs in different applications, such as for use with ha rotary polisher and/or for use with an orbital polisher.

After much experimenting with a brand new and very complex processing technology, once Tunch Goren perfected the powder and the accompanying liquids he then blended these two components together to create 3D AAC 510 Premium Rubbing Compound and 3D AAT 520 Finishing Polish. The new global tag-team of body shop safe compounds and polishes.

Like ALL 3D products, 3D AAT 520 Finishing Polish contains no harsh, harmful solvents nor any OSHA regulated crystalline silica. 3D AAT 520 Finishing Polish is the fastest polish in the industry for producing hologram-free results. This proprietary Alpha Ceramic Alumina powder and the water-based formula reduce heat during the buffing process, offers a super long open time or buffing cycle, zero dusting and easy wipe-off. If you demand the best, then get 3D AAT 520 Finishing Polish.

3D on the outside of the bottle means you can trust the product on the inside of the bottle.

What is it? - A body shop safe, silicone-free, water based premium quality fine-cut polish for use on automotive paints in in body shops environments. Can be used with any rotary or orbital polisher with foam pads.

Body Shops – Using a rotary polisher

Step 1: First perform compounding to remove sanding marks and/or serious paint defects before polishing.

Step 2: Attach preferred foam polishing or finishing pad to backing plate on rotary polisher and set speed setting to low or medium.

Step 3: Apply 4-5 dime sized drops of product onto the center of the face of buffing pad. Press the face of the pad against a body panel, turn the polisher on and spread the product over the area to be worked, about 2’ by 2’.

Step 4: After spreading polish over area to be worked - turn polisher to a medium to high speed and begin making overlapping passes. Move polisher over paint using a slow to medium arm speed. Monitor defect removal as you buff. Once paint defects are removed to your satisfaction, stop buffing and remove any excess product using a clean, soft microfiber towel.

Detail Shops/Enthusiasts – Using an orbital polisher

Step 1: Prepare the surface by first washing, drying, and removing any above surface bonded contaminants using detailing clay or a clay substitute. If there are serious paint defects like deep swirls, scratches, water spots or heavy oxidation – use a 3D compound as your first step.

Step 2: Attach preferred foam polishing or finishing pad to backing plate on orbital polisher and set speed setting to low or medium.

Step 3: Apply 4-5 dime sized drops of product onto the center of the face of buffing pad. Press the face of the pad against a body panel, turn the polisher on and spread the product over the area to be worked, about 2’ by 2’.

Step 4: After spreading polish over area to be worked - turn polisher to a medium to high speed and begin making overlapping passes. Move polisher over paint using a slow to medium arm speed. Monitor defect removal as you buff. Once paint defects are removed to your satisfaction, stop buffing and remove any excess product using a clean, soft microfiber towel.

Professional Technique Tips

Orbital Polishers

Use lots of foam pads - Due to the way any liquid polish can saturate into foam polishing and finishing pads – switch to a clean, dry foam pad often. You’ll get better results faster if you switch to clean, soft dry foam pads often versus trying to buff out an entire car with only a few pads.

1 pad per 2 body panels - Figure 2 large panels per pad and then switch to a clean, dry foam pad. For a 2-door passenger car with 9 panels, (hood, roof, trunk lid, 2 front fenders, 2 doors and 2 rear fenders), this means have 4-5 foam pads on hand for the polishing step to do the job right.

Clean your pad often - Together with swapping to a fresh, clean dry pad often, when working around the body panels of any vehicle using a foam polishing or finishing pad – clean the face of the pad often using a nylon pad cleaning brush.
