    Re: Compounding dust

    I don`t get heavy dusting with Menz 400. It`s a little worse with Rupes blue and Meg`s d300, but nothing I find too objectionable. I would think the Jescar and Menz would be similar, but I`m just guessing. Maybe you are just working the compound too long? Maybe try a spritz of IPA solution before wiping the compound off to cut down on the dust?

    hmm maybe using too much and working too long? ill have to change my technique up.

    i always thought some dusting was normal due to all these guys on instagram blowing out their pads and creating a large dust cloud. then i thought to myself, how the heck are they keeping their shop so dust free.

    Re: Compounding dust

    I try to only use compounds/polishes that generate very little dust and I`ve been blowing my pads out the side door now as well since that is what generates dust for me. Unfortunately, doing so definitely add a little to the overall time of the job but I have little to no dust at the end. I have my garage door down at all times too so that helps. Eventually I want to make a filter/fan box set up for blowing my pads into but for now out the door it is.

    Bingo! Well, at least IMO. I never work such products until they`re dry so there`s minimal dust to deal with.

    Yeah, I do get some dust in the shop when I do that, pretty much unavoidable although I try to minimize it by blowing them out towards a damp floor. If I had a zillion pads I could probably eliminate the dusting entirely by changing pads instead of cleaning them.

    EDIT: come to think of it, even with the blowing out I don`t get enough dust that I need to cover the other vehicles or anything like that. And I used *a lot* of product when I was KBMing with M105.

    Re: Compounding dust

    I get more dusting when I use microfiber pads than any foam pad

    I really like Tornado for pad cleaning, its phenomenal

    maybe a spritz of pad conditioner? did that help any?
    I have dusting issues as well but doesn`t seem as bad as what you are getting.

    Re: Compounding dust

    I saw Jim of White Details use a bucket for collecting dust. He sprays the inside of the bucket with water from a spray bottle. When he goes to clean his pads with compressed air, he sticks the polisher and pad somewhat into the bucket and blows into the bucket. The wet walls of the bucket do a decent job of holding onto the dust. He`ll spray the bucket walls with water as needed.

    JustJesus- That`s a good approach, the damp bucket idea.

    Re: Compounding dust

    I saw a video where they made a hole in a trash can or something and stuck a shop vac in there and taped it up and turned it on when they had the pad in there blowing the dust off...pretty clever...might need to get crafty like that myself one of these days

    I like the idea as well, but don`t have compressed air yet.

    Ammo NYC had a video like that. Not sure if Kevin Brown was in that one as well, but they did something similar, using a box, I believe.

    Clever ideas, indeed.

    Re: Compounding dust

    Dan- Yeah, I think people are taking the issue more seriously these days; back in the days of 3M`s PI-II line those of us who mentioned it were basically blown off as Chicken Littles.

    BUT..do Detailing abrasives generally contain silica these days? One of the features of the PI-III lineup was that it did *not* and none of my current products have the Warnings on them.

    Not sure but I`m fairly confident anything hard enough to cut modern paint isn`t good to inhale.

    Re: Compounding dust

    I usually don`t get much dusting. On the rare occasion that I do get some, it is very minimal. When cleaning my pads, I hold the polisher inside my garbage can and if the dust slings off the pad, it`s inside the can and not all over the place. Any minimal dusting left on the vehicle is easily blown off with my air compressor before the final wipe down.

    I`ve been using The Wax Shop 1000, 2000, 3000 lately and it has a long work time, produces excellent results and very little dusting.
