    Compounding dust

    how do you guys deal with it??? primarily working out of my 2 car garage, sometimes ill work with the garage door down to get the room as dark as possible. by the time im done with a car... the whole garage + the car is covered in dust.

    ive tried fluffing my pads off into a damp 5 gallon bucket but still, the dust is uncontrollable. pretty soon ill be putting A/C in my garage and keeping the garage door down 80% of the time. i need a solution to keep dust to a minimum.

    what are some tips or things you do to control the dust?

    Edit - forgot to include what products im using. Griots FCC or Jescar compound. lake country MF cut pads most of the time

    everywhere! i normally dust the vehicle surface off before working on it. ive seen a few guys use blowers to blow off the area but to me... that just moves the dust around and creates more havoc

    after im done with a vehicle. i blow out my garage floor and dust my cabinet areas.

    it gets pretty nasty, i try to wear a respirator the whole time

    If you can trust an AIO, I recommend HD SPEED unless cutting is needed for heavy correction. Perhaps research Sonax

    I`ve had that issue but not to that extent. Dust on the vehicle around the area I`m working on but not all over the garage.

    Pro Polish 2 and SSR3 have minimal dusting without dampening the pad .. also take a look at your pads that they aren`t part of the problem
    life is short ..do it while you can

    How do you clean your pads? I was having this problem in the garage I work out of too and thought it was because my parents don`t keep it up well enough - turns out my pads were never fully flushed out from previous paint corrections. I use FCC too and there is zero dust, ever.

    Re: Compounding dust

    soaked in snappy clean. rinsed out using garden hose on jet mode. spin dry on a DA and left to air dry for the rest of the time.

    might have to go back and look at my pad cleaning process....

    I have had dust residue on vehicles after compounding, but never spread all over the garage like you are saying.

    Snappy clean never gets all the polish out. If you have a pressure washer try out Swanicyouth`s process below and continue to use snappy clean. Otherwise soak in snappy clean rinse out and do a second treatment with more snappy clean or a different pad cleaner spray.

    Had literally the exact same technique. Switched to spraying the face with APC/Dedicated Pad Cleaner(picked up a couple bottles of PB Tornado and it really works well), agitating, then I put it face up on a grit guard in a bucket and pressure wash it. I`ve turned the water deep chalky white rinsing out just one or two pads that I thought were "clean". It`s the same technique that mnehls linked to, but he has a nice little setup where it drains. I have to empty the bucket every couple pads. Swanic knows his stuff when it comes to uncomplicating things.

    If this shortens my pad life, I haven`t seen it happen yet. Never had a pad delaminate or anything, and even if it did shorten the life of the adhesive or something it`s worth it just to never have dust issues anymore.

    Re: Compounding dust

    I`ve been using McKee`s polishing pad cleaner. I use G21+Boss MF pads and FCC and I never have any dust from that product. My process for cleaning is spray all the pads, let them sit for a minute or so, work the product into the pad. Then rinse with cold water. That being the most important step. I used to use warm or hot water. I definitely see a difference in them looking and feeling new for an extended amount of time
