3D - ONE
A Hybrid Cutting Compound & Finishing Polish
Paint correction is one of the least desirable steps when it comes to doing a full exterior detail job. The reason why is because most compounds and polishes are a pain to work with. This includes how the feel while buffing, they dry up and start creating dust, if you work them too long, they become sticky like glue and then wipe of is both frustrating, difficult, time consuming and tiring. Plus, you need more towels to do the job safely.
3D ONE is like no other compound or polish you’ve ever used, and you’ll find this out the first time you use it. 3D ONE cuts like a compound and finishes out like a fine cut polish. Other companies have tried to create a product like 3D ONE in the past, but no one even comes close to 3D ONE. To change the cut simply change the pad or tool. That’s right, change the tool. For super aggressive cut, use 3D ONE with a rotary polisher and a traditional 4-ply, twisted wool cutting pad. For less cut, use any orbital polisher with either a fiber pad or a foam cutting pad. For polishing and show car finishing work, switch to your favorite orbital polisher and a soft foam polishing of even softer foam finishing pad.
Unlike any other compound or polish you’ve ever used, to experience the forever buffing cycle is incredible. This product will simply NOT dry-up on you. As long as you buff the product will stay wet on the surface and continue to cut or polish. Everyone I’ve ever met hates it when any product becomes dusty while they buff or when it’s time to wipe-off the residue. Never happens. Never.
The wipe-off is smooth and fluid. The product lubricates the surface as you wipe so not only is wiping off easy there’s virtually zero risk for wiping induced towel marring. Unheard of when it comes to compounds and polishes.
While it’s always a good best practice to wipe off any paint care products during the job, one time I was compounding a Corvette and an emergency came up. I had to leave the shop. I dreaded coming in the next day. I fully expected the 3D ONE residue covering the entire car to wipe-off like concrete. To my complete and joyful surprise, it wiped off just as easy as if I had just finished buffing. In fact, it may have wiped off easier! The point being – this product wipes off easy and this simply is not the case with most products on the market today. And when a product is difficult to wipe off this not only increases the risk for put wiping scratches back into the paint (you just invested hours buffing to perfection), but it will also tire you out and take all the fun out your work.
Get a bottle – see for yourself what you read above is true and accurate. 3D ONE will become you new go-to favorite compound/polish.
What is it? - Combination 2-in-1 product – it is a compound/polish. Cuts like a compound and finishes like a polish.
Uses 3D’s proprietary alpha ceramic alumina abrasive technology. Alumina Oxide is a conductor of heat. Ceramic is an insulator of heat. By combining to create a hybrid, the ceramic counters the heat issue created from the alumina oxide to reduce and help eliminate heat issues like burn-through from excess surface temperatures.
No filler formula – The results you see are true and accurate – no fillers, hiding or masking.
What does it do? - Removes below surface paint defects like swirls, scratches, water spots and oxidation. Can be used with aggressive pads and powerful tools for removing deep and/or serious paint defects or can be used with soft foam pads and free spinning orbital polishers to finish out for show car results.
When do you use it? - Anytime you want to remove below surface defects that are in your car’s paint and then create a super high gloss finish perfect for sealing with a wax, synthetic paint sealant or a ceramic paint coatings.
Why use 3D ONE over other options? - Freaking amazing abrasive technology. Before I tell you about the product itself, first you need to know there’s something that’s a BIG DEAL about 3D that separates 3D from all the rest of the car care companies and that is – 3D makes their own abrasive technology from scratch!
Unlike most other companies that much cross their fingers and hope they are buying the best abrasive technology, or even good abrasive technology, 3D makes it themselves. And they can do this because they have great chemists. What’s inside the bottle starts with a great team of chemists and an owner that believes in them. Plus – the owner is also the head chemist. This is why at a minimum you own it to yourself to at least try 3D ONE. It’s your money, but it’s also you time, and no one wants to buff out a car only to find out the results don’t look good and now you have to do it a second time. This won’t happen with 3D products and also 3D’s Customer Care Team. We’re here to help you from start to finish.
Now that you know 3D makes their own abrasive technology, (for all their compounds, polishes, and all-in-ones, for both their automotive line and their marine line), now let me tell you about the 3D ONE itself.
Other companies have tried hard to create a hybrid compound/polish type product with little success. These other attempts either don’t offer the cut necessary to be considered a true compound for heavy duty work or they cut great but don’t finish out well and often times this shows up as micro-marring left in the finish.
3D ONE is the first product that can do both, cut and finish and most important – this hybrid compound/polish works and delivers consistent results over a wide-spectrum or car paints. When it comes to paint correction, the unknown variable between different cars is paint hardness. Some cars can have very hard paint while other cars can have very soft paint and some cars of course are right in the middle, the sweet spot.
3D ONE works on all paint types, hard, medium, and soft. And you can control the level of cut or finish by simply changing the type of pad or the type of pad together with the type of tool. With 3D ONE, you can get rid of all your other antiquated compounds and polishes because now there is finally a product that will in fact do it all.
Besides offering incredible cutting and finishing ability, the product never dries up on you. Meaning you can buff until the cows come home and the product works throughout the entire buffing cycle and just as important – ZERO DUSTING! So many compounds and product dry-up and then start creating dust all over the car, your pad and you! No so with 3D ONE.
No fillers. 3D ONE does not contain any fillers, or any ingredients intended to fill, mask, or camouflage swirls and scratches. The results you see are true and accurate.
Also – Super easy wipe off. Most compounds become sticky and can become difficult to wipe-off after buffing. 3D ONEE is easy to wipe-off immediately after buffing and for hours after buffing. Easy wipe-off mans less risk for user-induced towel wiping marring and better yet – less tiring for you.
3D on the outside of the bottle means you can trust the product on the inside of the bottle.
