Rupes Bigfoot Polishers - System Based Polishing

Tool - Compound - Pad

I recently spent a morning with the Global Director of Training for Rupes USA, Master Detailer Jason Rose. When you are being taught with the knowledge that Jason has, you realise how much there is to learn, and with that learning how much better and easier it is to do a job and get spectacular results.

Rupes have built a system to tackle any polishing task. The system has three components, Tool, Compound and Pad. In this blog we will look at the compound.

The Compounds

BigFoot Polishing compounds are the result of in-depth studies and research, and consist of the highest quality abrasive mixes, all of which are body shop safe. The Bigfoot range of compounds are designed to be matched with the specific Tool you are using - Rotary, Random Orbital or Gear Driven. 

Polishing compounds always offer several options within each tool specific range, including high cut rate, high polish finishes and protective coats - using the right one makes the job so much easier.

(Please note this is a basic overview of the common products)

Bigfoot Rotary Polishing Compounds

Rotary Coarse

A high-performance compound recommended for first step polishing.

BigFoot's Coarse compound is its most "aggressive" grain, used for quickly removing marks and scratches. With a high degree of efficiency, it can restore paints and generate a gloss that looks like it just came from a showroom. Anybody requiring speedy and superior results will find it the ideal abrasive.

Rotary Fine

The ideal composition for perfect finishes on particularly hard clear coats.

This highly refined, water-soluble abrasive compound is perfect for removing paint blemishes and producing a flawless finish in spot repair, following the micro abrasive nib removal process. This formula offers exceptional scratch and defect removal results, allowing for a spotless, restored surface.
