3D AAT 502 Finishing Polish is the second part in a two-part system for use in body shops to cut and finish after sanding. Body shops are considered high-speed or production shops, the collision repair must be made in a timely manner followed by paint work and final polishing steps. Body shop technicians need a polish that works fast and delivers customer pleasing true results that last. 

Many polishes mask scratches and swirls with fillers or oils – here at 3D Products, we don’t make these kinds of products. What you see is what you get – true paint correction with a super high gloss shine.

3D AAT 502 Finishing Polish is our entry level polish. Even though it’s our entry level polish and the price reflects this, it’s as good and in most cases better than any other brand of polish on the market. If your shop is looking for an inexpensive top performing polish that delivers consistent results over the widest spectrum of paint systems, then try 3D AAT 502 Finishing Polish. 

Once you experience how capable this polish is for maximizing the gloss, clarity, and shine after the compounding step with a 3D compound, you’ll never want to be without it. The adaptive abrasive technology used in 3D AAT 502 Finishing Polish removes haze and holograms after aggressive compounding step or use as by itself to remove fine swirls, scratches, water spots and oxidation.

Best of all… it wipes off super easy, so clean-up is a cinch.

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 pro-grade quality fine cut polish for use on automotive paints in in body shops environments. Can be used with any rotary or orbital polisher. Can also be used with both wool and foam pads.

What does it do? - Removes holograms, fine swirls, fine toweling marks, shallow scratches, water spots and oxidation. Maximizes the distinction of image or D.O.I. appearance quality of a paint finish. Perfectly prepares the paint for wax, sealant, or ceramic coating. 

When do you use it? - After the compounding step to remove any residual haze, minor imperfections, or holograms or as a standalone polish for lightly neglected cars.

Why use 3D AAT 502 Finishing Polish over other options? - Besides the fact that it works awesome and will outperform any other polish you’re used in the past, it’s also safe for you, employees, family, and friends to use or just be around.

3D AAT 502 Finishing Polish contains ZERO crystalline silica. This is very important. Historically and even currently in the world today, many compounds and polishes contain this hazardous mineral.

Inhaling crystalline silica can lead to serious, sometimes fatal illnesses including silicosis, lung cancer, tuberculosis (in those with silicosis), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In addition, silica exposure has been linked to other illnesses including renal disease and other cancers.

Here at 3D Products, our goal is to not only create world class products that are environmentally green but also completely safe for our customers. Our compounds, polishes and all-in-one products are all 100% free of any crystalline silica to keep you safe. 

Crystalline Silica is nothing to mess around with, if you breathe it into your lung’s chances are really high it will cause life-long health issues and worse. Before you purchase any brand of compound, polish, or all-in-one, make sure the label and any accompanying information clearly states the product is safe and does not contain crystalline silica. You can trust the 3D brand; we look out for you.

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.
