Silence Of The Lambs

For many years lambs wool was out in detailing. People found it not aggressive enough and turned into “twisted Wool” pads and rough foam pads. There is no doubt that the 100% twisted wool cutting pads with hook and loop interface will remove the 1200 grit sand scratches fastest but it will leave a lot of swirl marks as well. This makes the second and third steps (even fourth) much harder to correct. This was the case so far. At 3D we call that THE Old School method. So does many of our new followers. Especially after we developed the HD UNO…. Old school compounds still need that heavy cutting performance from the wool pad. Lambs wool was always around; but was never enough in cutting. Therefore detailers and body shops needed that extra power and had to live with the swirl marks to deal in next steps. After HD UNO era I think the lambs wool will shine again. Combined with the power of UNO;  it creates the cut that the detailers need without heavy swirl marks thus allowing in most cases to skip right into finishing stage. Time is money and precious. Besides the real “Lambs wool” will not fly all over your facility. The “Twisted wool” pads will lint a lot ! Although they are 100% natural wool, still considered man-made because it is woven into a fabric. However “Lambs wool” is 100% natural all-around. The wool is still on the skin. Thus there is almost no lint. Another great feature of lambs wool is that even on rotary polishers it does not create high heat like the Foam Pads. HD UNO together with the lambs wool will make your detailing job a lot easier. Tunch...

PR about 3D Waterless Car Wash

Revolutionizing Waterless Product Gains Market Share With Respect Santa Clarita, CA (November 11, 2011) – 3D Products again making a huge impact on the detailing industry with recognizing an amazing new waterless product that is sure to propel the detailing industry forward. Tunch Goren personally started promoting the waterless movement as far back as 1998. However, “You know no one cared about being Green back in the day, so I had a struggle with it.” Now, waterless is no longer just a word. We as a society seem to generate words that may appear to mean nothing at all or don’t actually generate the correct message we are trying to send. But none the less, waterless, waterless products, waterless detailing and waterless car care is here and in high demand! Marketing your business or services as an eco friendly, water smart solution is one of the best things you can do in your community. “Going green” is here now and will only become more critical for businesses in the future. As professionals in the car care industry we now have the solutions, products, tools and business ideas to join the green movement. However, 3D says they are getting a lot of e-mails regarding the waterless phenomenon.  People are asking: how are waterless products made, do they or don’t they scratch the surface, do they or don’t they contain water? “Too funny” 3D staff mentions, with a huge smile on their face, “but these are very appropriate questions if you don’t know.  A lot of the detailing chemicals today, including waterless products, are developed as water based products, and most of today’s high end waterless products will not scratch the painted surface of a vehicle if used correctly and appropriately.” Lets take for example the term “waterless car washing”. What we mean when we use a term like this is that we do not use normal amounts of water to wash or detail a vehicle. To elaborate on that, we use the term “waterless products” because we are using very little water to get our vehicles clean. Most of the time we are using concentrated waterless products that we do mix with water; but these products eliminate having to use buckets of water, garden hoses and pressure washers! Using a waterless product will do more for the cleaning of the vehicle then the old school methods of buckets of water and sponges. The waterless product movement has been growing steadily over the past 30 years and has seen huge market growth in the past 3 years. It is proving itself as a viable alternative to get many types of vehicles clean without the use of massive amounts of water, harsh...
