HAND Application: apply sparingly with damp cloth over surface. Hand buff until residue appears. Then remove residue by buffing with a soft dry microfiber cloth. Repeat for severe oxidation.
MACHINE Application: A 60% Acrylic/40% Twisted Wool pad is recommended for best results. Never use a pad that already has another chemical on it. Apply a thin coating over limited area with an applicator. Buff with light pressure at 1800 - 2500 RPM until residue disappears revealing a deep shine. Remove any excess residue with clean dry microfiber cloth. Usage Note: Less is more with Buff Magic. Since Buff Magic is made with high end materials and no fillers you will need to apply less than you may be used to with other products. Using too much product will cause you to overload the pad and have poor results. Start with a small amount of product you can always add more as needed.
Once buffing is complete, seal and protect newly restored fiberglass with Pro Polish.
There are very subtle differences between the Buff Magic white vs. pink. The pink breaks down a little further than the white, giving a bit more shine and depth. The pink was the original formula, and many original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) asked for a compound that would cut a little better, and they also wanted a white color for a cleaner appearance if any residue was left behind.
To simplify applications of Buff Magic:
White – preferred by OEM’s that typically sand to 600-800
Pink – mostly preferred by consumers and professional detailers. Great for gelcoat color restoration where sanding is not necessary and used as a detailing compound for light oxidation. Also good for use on painted graphics. Buff Magic pink is also an excellent metal, plexiglass, and isinglass polish.
Note: these are basic generalizations; different people buff in different manners and may prefer one over the other based on personal preferences.
