    UPP bonding or not: How to tell?

    Let`s say I apply it over a surface containing oils, or carnauba. How can I tell it`s not bonding? How do I know it`s ok or not?
    Thanks

    jgv,

    Good question, and probably extemely difficult to answer. I would guess that the only way you would be able to tell is if the UPP doesn`t seem to last as long as it should. On the other hand, it`s probably difficult to tell when it`s lost its stuff anyway.

    I know, not much of an answer, but it`s all I could come up with.

    I got kick`d out of a forum because a person who tried UPP didn;t follow the directions. This person put it on top of Zaino and then said it only last`d a week and just bash`d UPP.(He was a (Zaino freak)...
    Anyway I told him he need`d to strip all his layers put Platinum pre cleaner and then UPP. Also he didn`t wait an hour or 2 after applying UPP and he layer`d it after about an hour.
    Anyway he and I got into.... and a week later Im off of the forum.

    I would just say it doesn`;t bond well and won;t last as long..Dwayne can give a more detail`d "why"....But i have always started from scratch when using UPP..

    Over the weekend I tried a new combination, Meg`s #5 quick polish, UPC, UPP. The look was amazing! The sparkle and warmth was unbelievable. The reason I used the #5 was because I don`t think it has as many oils as say the #7. I figured the UPC would take care of any bonding issues. If I can resist putting another couple of layers on I will post in a few weeks about the bonding and durability of this combination. One things for sure, the #5 definately added to the look.

    LMAO at JeffBruce. You seem like one of the nicest guys here, can`t believe you got booted from a forum. We all know that technique is more important than having every product and that one good layer done properly is better than 10 layers done improperly.

    Yeah, I can see JeffBruce like a knight in a shining armor defending UPP

    My question is important if one wants to test products, like, for example the first guy who tested it over AIO, how did he knew it bonded ok? even if after a couple of weeks the UPP was gone because of un-proper bonding, it would still bead cause of the AIO.

    I believe I remember Jeff`s "altercation" in that other forum. I thought Jeff handled himself very well.............. but didn`t take any crap!

    I also agree that one should follow the manufaturers directions first, and then, if not satisifed, modifiy them as necessary.

    There`s nothing to be wrong on using the EX, now about the S&W, ... I`m still cautious when the car has more dust

    Jeff, about your new 21% discount claim, today I got a supplier for some Eagle One products, 20/20 glass cleaner, never dull, A2Z wheel cleaner, all with a 30% discount, not to mention megs 40%, 1Z 25%+15%+10%... on the computer business I can hardly get 1.5% ... I`m thinking of selling my computer shop and dedicate all my time to detailing
