What better way to usher in the new season – our favourite season, might we add – with a good detail of your pride and joy. Tripple is our all-in-one cleaner and polish and is the perfect companion for any full vehicle cleanse.
It comes as a 250ml bottle and has been specially formulated for that all-important deep clean. Featuring Brazilian No:1 Carnauba wax, it’s real easy to apply, cleaning the paint’s surface while adding a protective layer of wax in one simple step.
The cleaning step of Tripple is deep, it removes stubborn oxidation and contamination using deep cleansing solvents, whilst refining the paint’s surface to reveal a deep, wet, glossy finish, with durability of a little more than one month. It also leaves behind ultra-slick film formers to help obscure ad glaze minor defects.
It’s the go to product for detailers that want a great detail without the added time; use it on its own or (for those that have a little more time) as a base for our Tough Coat sealant or any one of our Carnauba waxes.
Onto application: Before applying Tripple, please do make sure you’re starting with a clean car, which is dry and free of contaminants. Tripple is used at the finishing stage as a polish with added protection
If applying by hand, you can either use a microfibre applicator or the white side of our dual foam applicator pad – both work equally as well. Simply add a few drops of the product (around a small coin sized amount) to your chosen applicator and work into the paintwork with light pressure and using circular motions. Once the residue starts to turn clear, leave the product to further haze for a few minutes before buffing off completely using a microfibre towel. We advise sticking to a small area at a time (18×18 square inch)
For a high-gloss finish, or if you’re working on particularly soft paint types, use the black side of the Dual Foam applicator pad.
If you’re using Tripple together with a Dual Action Polisher, apply the product to a light foam finishing/polishing pad and spread onto a small area of the paint (18×18 square inch) using the lowest setting. Then work the product in using slow, overlapping passes, light pressure and a moderate speed setting (4000 OPMs). Once the residue starts to turn clear, back the speed down to its lowest, or second lowest setting and reduce pressure for one more pass. Leave the residue to haze for a few minutes, before a final buff off using a microfibre towel.
If your machine polisher is a rotary, apply a few drops to a light foam finishing/polishing pad and spread onto an 18×18 square inch section of paint using the lowest speed setting. Then increase the speed to a maximum of 1000RPM, working the product in using slow, overlapping passes. Once you see the residue starts to turn clear, back the speed down to its lowest setting for one more pass. Leave the residue to haze for a few minutes and buff off using a microfibre towel.
If working on harder paint types, use a slightly firmer foam polishing pad.
AF’s quick tips for use:
- Do not apply Tripple too high a heat – the product will cure to quickly, which will only cause streaking.
- If the product is particularly difficult to buff off, use one of our quick detailers to soften it up and help it along. This will not break down the wax protection layer you’ve just applied so don’t worry.
- Auto Finesse Tripple all in one polish can be used on its own or as the base for Tough Coat or any of our Carnauba waxes.
