3D ACA 500 X-TRA Cut Compound is the wool pad version of 3D ACA 510 for shops that prefer and use wool pads when cutting with a rotary polisher.

When it comes to polishing paint, THE most important factor is the abrasive technology. Think about it? It is the abrasives that TOUCH the paint first, then the buffing pad. Behind the pad is the tool and behind the tool is the person.

3D Products is unique in ALL the world because our abrasive technology is unique to 3D. We make all our own powders, (powders mean abrasive technology), we go as far to make our own raw materials to make our own powders! There’s no other company that can make this claim.

Tunch Goren, the head chemist, founder and owner of 3D Products came up with this technology completely on his own after studying abrasive technology and formulations for over 25 years. Tunch’s passion is to continually create abrasive technology that is unlike no other abrasive technology in the world.

The process that Tunch Goren invented and manufactures in-house in Santa Clarita, California is unique – there are no other manufacturing plants on Earth with this capability.

Body Shops – Using a rotary polisher

Step 1: Prepare the surface by sanding the paint with the sanding paper of your choice.

Step 2: Attach preferred foam or wool cutting 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 center of face of buffing pad. Press face of pad against body panel, turn polisher on and spread product over area to be worked, about 2’ by 2’.

Step 4: Move polisher over paint using a slow to medium arm speed. Monitor defect removal as you buff. Once sanding marks or paint defects are removed, stop buffing and remove any excess product using a clean, soft microfiber towel.

Detail Shops/Enthusiasts – Using an orbital polisher

NOTE: 3D ACA 500 X-TRA CUT COMPOUND is formulated for and intended to be used with wool pads on rotary polishers. Best results are obtained using this type of tool and pad. Results may vary when used with orbital polishers and microfiber and foam pads.

Step 1: Prepare the surface by first washing, drying, and removing any above surface bonded contaminants using detailing clay or a clay substitute.

Step 2: Attach preferred foam, microfiber or wool cutting 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 center of face of buffing pad. Press face of pad against body panel, turn polisher on and spread product over area to be worked, about 2’ by 2’.

Step 4: 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.

IMPORTANT: 3D ACA 500 cuts fast. Be sure to understand the paint you are working on before starting. This compound was originally developed for working on fresh, custom paint work in body shop situations where the technician knows how much paint is being sprayed onto the panels or entire car body. If you’re a detailer working on customer cars, remember factory paint is thin. Always do a Test Spot and use the least aggressive process to get the job done. Always work on a cool clean surface in the shade.
