Presta Products Releases the PACE™ Paint Finishing System
Monday, July 10, 2017
Paint runs, overspray, orange peel and dirt nibs can slow a body shop down. However, just another compound isn’t going to help. An easy-to-use, one-step solution for paint finishing is required. 

That’s why Presta Products has introduced the Presta® PACE™ Paint Finishing System, a one-step process that’s easy to use, reduces cycle time, uses less product and eliminates the guess work.

“For a body shop, speed is critical. You need something that provides a quality finish quickly; something that’s user friendly and won’t leave swirls,” said Mary Kimbro, director of marketing. “Body shops don’t have time to go back and do it again because time is money. PACE cuts through all of that to solve their problems in one step.” 

Designed to work with an orbital polisher, PACE allows collision centers to cut P1500 sand scratches and finish without swirls. The great cutting power and polishing action means using less sand paper, saving time and money. Coupled with its ease of use, body shops will see cycle times improve … and that means more cars out the door. 

The core of the PACE system is the choice of two compounds, an optional polish and an optional glaze. Each PACE compound has its own unique buffing pad calibrated to work on specific types of sand scratches and clearcoats.  All of the products are water based and body shop safe. 
 
PACE™ Heavy Cut Compound is a correcting and polishing compound that removes up to P1500 sand scratches and polishes to a deep gloss in one step. 
  • Available in 8-oz. (part #133108), 16-oz. (part #133116) and 32-oz. (part #133132) sizes.
  • For best results on softer clear coats, use with the PACE™ Grey Foam Heavy Cut Pad in either the 6.5” (#890194) or 5.5” (#890190) size. For harder clearcoats, use the PACE™ Purple Foamed Wool Heavy Cut Pad in either the 6.25” (#890197) or 5.25” (#890193) size.

PACE™ Medium Cut Compound is a correcting and polishing compound that removes up to P2500 sand scratches and polishes to a deep gloss in one step. 
  • Available in 8-oz. (part #133208), 16-oz. (part #133216) and 32-oz. (part #133232) sizes.
  • For best results, use with the PACE™ Orange Foam Medium Cut Pad in either the 6.5” (#890195) or 5.5” (#890191) size. 

PACE™ Ultimate Polish is a finishing polish to be used as a final step after using PACE Heavy Cut Compound or PACE Medium Cut Compound to achieve a deep, show-car-level gloss. It can also be used as a one-step finish for enhancing the appearance of a vehicle where light correction with a deep gloss is desired. 
  • Available in 8-oz. (part #133308), 16-oz. (part #133316) and 32-oz. (part #133332) sizes.
  • For best results, use with the PACE™ Black Foam Ultimate Polish Pad in either the 6.5” (#890196) or 5.5” (#890192) size. 

PACE™ Protective Glaze is a breathable and durable protective coating that is an ideal last step in the PACE process. This advanced formula goes on easily and wipes off quickly, producing a deep, long-lasting gloss. Protective Glaze not only beautifies and protects freshly painted surfaces, but allows them to fully cure without causing solvent pop. It can also be used to heighten gloss on non-repaired vehicle areas, making it ideal for pre-delivery prep. 
  • Available in a 16-oz. (part #133716) size.
  • For best results, use with the PACE™ Black Foam Ultimate Polish Pad in either the 6.5” (#890196) or 5.5” (#890192) size. 

Reduce cycle times. Stunning results. Set the PACE.
