Recommended Pads to use with CutMax:
With a Dual Action Polisher - Apply 3-4 dimes sized drops onto your pad, place the machine on the surface and at a low speed (2-3) quickly spread CutMax around your working area.

With a Rotary Polisher - Apply 3-4 dime sized drops onto your pad, place the machine onto the surface and at a low speed (800 RPM) quickly spread CutMax around your working area (2 ft. x 2 ft.).

Wipe away with a clean, dry microfiber towel.

Autoality Pro Tips for SONAX CutMax:
- Always strive for the best finish possible even when using an aggressive compound like CutMax. Don't have the mentality "I'll get that out when polishing on my next step". The better you leave your finish after completing the compounding stage, the better the overall finish will be.
- The "only" defects you should be removing after compounding is any haze that is left from that step. Your swirls or scratches should be removed prior to moving onto your polishing step.
- Use multiple pads and keep them clean! Use compressed air or a foam pad cleaning brush every few sections, or changing to a fresh pad will allow you to get the most cut out of CutMax.
- Using too much product or a "clogged" pad will result in poor performance and possibly dust.
- Always remember to check your work after each panel to make sure your finish is consistent throughout the entire vehicle.
