    Re: Compounding dust

    I usually get minimal dusting too but the times I wear a mask it looks dirty to me. It`s certainly not as white as it started.

    Re: Compounding dust

    I`ll have a look tomorrow at all my polish bottles, but do any of them recommend wearing a mask during use? If not, wouldn`t that open them up to lawsuits if people were injured inhaling the dust they created?

    The products I use don`t mention wearing masks.... Its all `bout the combination of pads/products your using as well as technique....I`m assuming your swapping out your pads, specially m/f ones.....

    Re: Compounding dust

    In my experience:

    1. Dirty pads (dried product still lodged in the fibers/foam cells).
    2. Too much/not enough compound in action.
    3. Too long of cycle time (too many passes).

    I prefer cutting with foam pads, but regardless of the type, I either blow or brush them out after each set of passes.

    These products can really grind off some paint, which had to go somewhere. Manufacturers understand this, and prefer the product dust away, rather than clog up the pad. It almost seems like a design feature, although the trend is to make them behave more like a polish - which is awesome!
