The Karate Kid 2.0 is our entry level random orbital polisher designed from the ground up. Featuring an 8mm throw with a standard 5” backing pad, this polisher is perfect for correcting and polishing. The M8 female screw on the shaft of the polisher also provides the flexibility to mount other backing plates.
Dual action random orbital polisher rotates through the momentum created by the high speed orbital motion. As there is no direct link between the rotations and orbit, this makes dual action random orbital polishers the safest tools to use for beginners but also enables effective paint correction.
Please note that 2 spare carbon brushes are included.
Menzerna Medium Cut Polish 2400 is the ‘medium’ polish is our 3 step Menzerna system. This excellent polish is designed to remove compounding marks, fine scratches and light to medium oxidation. Unlike older style compounds this polish is non-gritty and smooth cutting.
This Menzerna Polish has been designed to remove up to 2500 grit sanding marks, and is suggested for use with Light Cutting or Polishing Pads. Ideally this polish is used after Menzerna Fast Gloss FG400 or on cars that have light to medium paint imperfections that need polishing out. This can also be used as a single set for some vehicle paints due to the amazing finishing properties in this formula.
The Menzerna OEM range are designed for most paint finishes including solid colour, regular clear coat and CeramiClear (e.g. late model Mercedes, and Porsche).
Best results are achieved by using with a rotary or random orbital polisher. All Menzerna polishes have excellent lubricating properties so do not need water to keep them working, simply work the polish by multiple passes to break down abrasive clusters and then wipe away the thin residue with a clean microfibre cloth.
For even further depth and definition to the paint, especially on dark colours you can follow on with Menzerna Super Finish 3500.
Menzerna Polishes do not contain fillers, silicones, waxes or other glazes and are Paint Shop friendly.
