Problem with Hyper Compound

Recommended Posts

Hey All, 

I sometimes experience some problems when using Hyper Compound. It causes weird staining on occassion, see pictures below:

Situation: car was washed with ONR and dried. I used Hyper Compound on a 6.25' OPT Orange Waffle Pad and the Zentool 21E2 on speed 2. Pad had been cleaned with Power Clean 6:1, than ran through the New Optimum Pad Washer with ONR. Residue was removed with damp ONR cloth and dried. The staining can only be removed by polishing. I've tried several times, this keepa happening.

And this isn't the first time this happened. What's causing this and how do I prevent it from happening? I shook the bottle well, and it has some stainless steel nuts in it.

Thanks in advance!

Guess I didn't shake hard/often enough, the Hyper Compound had settled in the bottle and gunked up. The nuts were even stuck on the bottom. So I shook the bottle a lot, poured it back in the gallon, shook that, poured it back in the sprayer, shook that, and repeated this a couple of times. Then changed the sprayer for a new one.

The Hyper compound is now a lot clearer when working it. But still it turns white and dries out during cutting and stains the panel.

sorry no responses, Heijneker, but I've never had Hyper Compound act like that or had feedback to that effect.  The most common issues with HC are separation, difficulty remixing, and/or spray head malfunction.

Hey Ron, too bad. I'll just try shaking it a lot more again, hopefully that will somehow resolve it. Maybe my Hyper Compound is somehow slightly defective. Since it also dusts a lot when used on a big wool rotary, or a zentool 21e2 with the Hyper wool pad.  Especially the last one, the cut is astonishing with that combination though. In my use it cuts way more than the rotary.

I'll keep you updated, still have half a gallon to go of this batch lol!

Off-topic: Right now I love to use the rotary with the big wool pads on vertical panels, and the Zentool 21E2 with the Hyper Wool pad on horizontal panels. Both barely raise the temperature on the panel, which is awesome.

sorry about the dusting and I've not heard of any "bad batches" of Compound.  Freely admit I rarely use Hyper Compound or a anything other than Zentool.  My go to is Hyper Polish and it serves my minimal needs.
