Intro: System Three has assembled a kit for repairing minor imperfections in a cured surface of MirrorCoat epoxy. Here is the step by step process.
Clean the MirrorCoat with water-dampened paper towels and wipe dry.
Lightly spritz a 2’x2’ zone with water. The First cut is done with 1000 grit paper. Run the sander over the surface at a slow even pace. The outside edges should be sanded over 2 times to ensure sufficient abrasion occurs.
Next sand the adjacent 2’x2’ zone. After the entire area has been sanded, remove the sanding slurry with fresh water and paper towels.
Inspect the surface to make sure it is clear of imperfections before moving on.
Repeat the process, increasing the paper grit each time to 1200 and then to 1500. Replacing the paper after 10 square feet of use.
Then use a 3000 grit Trizact™ pad and finish sanding with a 5000 grit Trizact pad. Replacing the Trizact pad after approximately 15-20 square feet of use. Remove the sanding slurry with paper towels.
Thoroughly clean the MirrorCoat with plenty of water and paper towels. Make sure the surface is clean and dry before proceeding to the polishing phase.
For the polishing phase, you will once again work a 2’x2’ zone. Clean the polishing pad with a conditioning brush and then apply Perfect-It™ EX Rubbing Compound to the polishing pad by placing dime size drops approximately 3” apart.
Without starting the polisher, spread the Perfect-It evenly over a 1’ x 2’ area. Now start the polisher with the pad slightly canted to the side.
Continue polishing until the surface reaches a high gloss. Moving too slowly will overheat the surface resulting in poor polishing.
Wipe a final time with a soft cloth or towel.
Following our buffing and polishing procedure will allow you to return a MirrorCoat surface to its beautiful, original state. No additional epoxy is required.
