Auto Express have just published their 2010 Car Scratch Removers test results; with the first place Best Buy Award 2010 going to Autoglym Paint Renovator.
Whilst not strictly marketed as a pure car scratch remover Auto Express commented that it also clears fine scratches as well as renovating the paint finish. Jamie Fretwell, Consumer Writer at Auto Expres wrote “It’s simple to use, left no trace of our most visible scratch and the paintwork was still shiny”.
In a close second place was Meguiars Ultimate Compound achieving ther Recommended 2010 award. Auto Express commented that ” It’s more like a liquid than a paste, and this makes it easy to apply. We were also impressed with the scratch removing qualities. What’s more, it didn’t dull the paint, while the keen price helped it take the second spot”
In third place on the test was Poorboys World SSR2 Swirl Remover which put in a “strong performance” and “worthy of its third-place finish”.
Other products in the test included:
JML Mantis Scratch Remover
Meguiars Scratch X 2.0
Farecla Scratch Paste Remover
3M Scratch Remover
Mer Scratch Remover Paste
Turtle Wax Safe Cut
Car Plan T Cut
Auto Express also commented that whilst many of the car scratch removal products can be applied with a dual action polishing machine, they were testing and awarding on the basis of the results achieved by removing the scratches by hand.
