    Re: **New** Meguiar's #105 Ultra Cut Compound Review!!!!

    Great review.

    I have a question about how you worked the product. Since the rumor is that the abrasives do not break down (and thus the polish should not loss cut as it is worked) did you just buff until the defects where removed the wiped away?

    Does the product appear to break down?

    Thanks

    Hey,

    I worked the product like I would any other...I worked it until it was a light residue and then wiped it off. It worked extremely well and it left the finish very clear. Whatever the Super-Micro Abrasives are or how they work is not important to me. What is important is that they do work and work extremely well!

    Now...just so you are aware, I have been following that debate between yourself and another member both here and on another detailing forum. I do not want this thread to be turned into a debate...it will not happen. Let's let the people who really know, answer the question rather than speculate further...

    We've sent an e-mail to Jason Rose and have asked him to chime in on the topic of how this product works as compared to our products with diminishing abrasives.

    Let's give him some time as we don't know what his schedule is like this week.

    Hi Tim. In some ways the reason the debate started is because I am curious. My questions have nothing to do with "the debate" but rather my personal quest for knowledge, and I love to have an understanding of the products I am using. I guess I am a little different because while the end result is the most important, I love to know the why as well.

    I am already sold on trying M105 and I love to see Meguiars comming out with cutting edge products and staying ahead of the curve. I'm glad it worked so well for you and I absolutely cannot wait to try it! Thanks for sharing your process with it as that is one of the quesitons I had

    Thanks

    We understand the curiosity factor as well as the pursuit of knowledge.

    Re: **New** Meguiar's #105 Ultra Cut Compound Review!!!!

    There is much talk about M105 and the finish it leaves, as well as, the type of abrasive used in it.

    Let me do my best to confirm / clarify these 2 hot topics…

    1) Finish left behind – M105 is not intended to be a LSP or a “1 liquid system". It is not a “polish” and we highly recommend following M105 with your favorite polish and pad for the best finish possible... it even states that in the directions. The front label states “Best in Class Finish”, this means if you compare the finish left behind to other compounds designed to remove 1200 grit scratches you will clearly see how good the finish looks after M105 and a wool pad is used. This DOES NOT mean it is swirls free or you can jump to a wax or it is a “1 liquid system” like So1o. Totally different products all together. In addition, totally different audience.

    2) Type of abrasive used – M105 uses an entirely new type / combination of non diminishing abrasives (Even different than So1o). We refer to them as “Super Micro Abrasive Technology”. This abrasive technology is exclusive to Meguiar’s and is not available to any other company. With that said, unfortunately, we can’t go into any further details on the abrasive content in M105 because that is proprietary information.

    This means, you will just need to use your own eyes and determine if M105 is a valid product for your detailing product mix that you use.

    We know it will be for many shops, maybe that includes yours

    Mike said it best in the above post, I agree 100%.

    I wanted to add...I'm so pumped about the curiousity and buzz about M105 Ultra-Cut Compound! If you've used it, you wonder "how can this stuff take that level of paint defect out so fast AND leave such a clear/glossy finish... making the second step with a Meguiar's polish fast & easy???"
    And if you haven't used it, you're curious what others are raving about!

    I understand being curious HOW M105 works. I am that kind of person too. I want to know how products work. I have built my career on that curiosity...and probably the main reason I am the Field Marketing Manager of Professional products for Meguiar's.

    But in this case, exactly how M105 works will be a mystery for you...not because we want to torture you... We simply have to be mindful of what we share about our formulations on an open forum.

    I will say this...as a former detailer, I sure wish I had M105 when I was in the business!!!!!!!
