    Great comments & questions, this is not necessarily the best start to a full on paint correction with a dual action polisher - in short we would recommend looking to our Ultimate, Detailer, or Mirror Glaze Lines for that situation for various reasons. In regards to why Hand application is the primary design driver for Hybrid Ceramic Paint Prep -the vast majority of all car care customers/users are not using a machine. With this in mind, we tuned it to perform great for hand application, and yes remove a good amount of swirls & fine scratches, and in addition provide some major added gloss, especially noticeable on a dark color. If the paint has heavy swirls or scratches & you are looking to make the paint absolutely perfect by hand or with your D/A Polisher, again some of our other products, i.e. Ultimate Compound/Ultimate Polish would be a more suitable way to go. There are generally not major/any disadvantages to using different line(s) of product for the preparation work on the paint.

      Pretty much everything leaves oils behind which would interfere. That is why they all want a prep wipe before applying a coating.

          Nick could this be used with either of the two products I mentioned earlier?

              Hi Jakub, we do not have any products with defect removal capability which we officially recommend for use on paint protection film. Have technicians or detailers used products with cleaning ability on paint protection film with varying levels of success, yes, but it's not something we have anything designed or tested for.

                You would not want to use Hybrid Ceramic Paint Prep prior to Hybrid Paint Coating, as HCPP contains protection ability to provide a foundation layer for Hybrid Ceramic Wax Spray or Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax. Regarding use prior to M27, that would be OK but best results prior to applying M27 would be using a finishing polish and/or using M122 Surface Prep Spray.

                  Thanks Nick. We successfully use M210 for restoring PPF. After let's say 2 years, we find very useful to buff the PPF with M210 on yellow foam pad (DFP5) and then apply a fresh coat of M27. When using Hybrid Ceramic products for mainenance this combo creates a perfect hydrophobic coat on top of PPF which you can rely on for a long time.

                  I was thinking about swapping from M210 to G2204 which could be used for removing those water stains and slight haze that we usually see on top of PPF after some time and creating a foundation layer for the M27 at the same time.

                  I know that defect removal is not what we are dealing with when taking care of PPF, but the cleaning ability + the foundation layer might be a really interesting part of the job that this product is gonna do.
