Pinnacle XMT 360™ Corrects, Cleans, Seals

Mirror-like gloss after just one step!


XMT 360™ by Pinnacle is a revolutionary new product that combines correction, cleaning, and sealing into one simple step. This all-in-one wonder eliminates the need to use a separate mild swirl remover, paint cleanser, and sealant, yet you achieve the same depth, gloss, and slickness! XMT 360™ is total car care made easier.

XMT 360™ is a breakthrough in quality car care. I say “quality” because there are many cleaner wax type products on the market that just do not perform. But XMT 360™ does everything you’d expect from a one step product and a lot more.

Corrects. XMT 360™ does what no mere cleaner wax can do; it removes light swirls and imperfections to leave the paint looking flawless. Ultra fine abrasives - so fine they are not perceptible by sight or touch - gently blend away fine blemishes and visibly smooth the paint. Light spider webbing and water spots vanish. XMT 360™ works like a mild swirl remover but, remarkably, it eliminates the need for a separate cleansing lotion or sealant.

Cleans. XMT 360™ contains cleaning agents to remove oxidation and uncover the glossy, vibrant paint underneath. Any type of paint instantly appears deeper, glossier, with more vivid color. XMT 360™ removes dull films and wax build-up to bring new life to the paint.

Seals. Besides correcting and cleaning the paint, XMT 360™ deposits a glossy, slick layer of durable polymer protection. This is not a one step product that has to be followed up with another sealant for real protection. XMT 360™ is a premium paint sealant that will provide months of paint protection against salt, water, industrial pollution, UV rays, insects, and road grime. XMT 360™ is so effective as a sealant, you’d have a tough time distinguishing its mirror-like finish from other premium non-cleaning paint sealants.




XMT 360™ is an absolute time-saver. Go from washing to drying to XMT 360™ and you’re done. This user-friendly product does not require buffing. Polish XMT 360™ until it disappears. It leaves no stubborn haze. Even when applied in the sun, XMT 360™ is a breeze to apply and remove.

XMT 360™ is designed for application with a buffer. Its thick consistency prevents it from being absorbed into foam pads too quickly (This effect is even more impressive when used with CCS Foam Pads by Lake Country, made to keep more product on the pad’s surface). Excellent lubrication provides adequate working time to allow the cleaners and abrasives to do their job. Once the abrasives have broken down, XMT 360™ literally disappears as you polish. Not only does XMT 360™ combine three detailing steps, it eliminates buffing to save you even more time!

XMT 360™ is a professional detailer’s dream. On vehicles that are in good condition, XMT 360™ is all you need to completely transform a customer’s vehicle in the time it would normally take just to apply the wax.

XMT 360™ performs like three products in the time it takes to apply one product. It requires no buffing. It looks flawless on any color paint. And, it has an addictive cherry scent. XMT 360™ could be the perfect all-in-one product.




You be the judge. Try XMT 360™ by Pinnacle on your own vehicle and see how much time and effort it saves you. Compare the results to what you get from your multi-step process. XMT 360™ by Pinnacle will become your go-to product for one-step paint correction, cleaning, and sealing.

Directions:
1. Prep the vehicle by washing and drying it. Use Pinnacle Bodywork Shampoo and then one of the Cobra Guzzler Waffle Weave Microfiber Drying Towels.
2. We recommend applying XMT 360™ with a Porter Cable 7424. For the best results, use the CCS Green Polishing/Finishing Foam Pad by Lake Country.
3. Apply a quarter size amount of XMT 360™ onto the pad.
4. With the polisher turned off, spread XMT 360™ over a 2 x 2 sq. ft. section to avoid splatter.
5. Set the maximum speed at 5 on the Porter Cable 7424. Work XMT 360™ in a back and forth, overlapping motion.
6. Continue to polish even as the product dries. XMT 360™ disappears, leaving nothing on the paint but a clean, glossy shine. There is no need to buff.

In the "Before" picture, a light is shining near the top of the area in question which will really make the flaws in the clearcoat much more visible. The "After" picture obviously does not have the added light so this is a flawed comparison. Not a good way to market any product IMHO.

Also,
My friend Nick at Autogeek did this write up for the Pinnacle XMT 360. Enjoy!




Trey, Autogeek's newest product specialist, came in bright and early this morning to give his just-purchased 2001 Hyundai Tiburon a much-needed polishing. Trey had a limited amount of time so he decided to take the simple, yet effective approach, and use a one-step cleaner wax with the Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher. Since my Nikon camera had a fully charged battery, I figured I would grab some pictures of the action!

The best way to describe Pinnacle XMT 360 is to call it a cleaner-wax on steroids. Not only does Pinnacle XMT 360 cleanse paint of gloss-hindering below-surface contaminants while leaving a durable layer of protection behind, it polishes it as well thanks to an advanced blend of micro-abrasives. If you're working on a vehicle that has clay-induced marring or light swirl marks, Pinnacle XMT 360 will enable you to save time and money by correcting, cleaning and sealing in one simple step. What's more, Pinnacle XMT 360 can be used in direct sunlight.

Trey's daily driver is a 2001 Hyundai Tiburon. He started out by giving the car a much needed bath. Since time was of the essence, Trey used the Nanoskin Autoscrub Medium Grade Wash Mitt to remove above-surface contaminants. Paint decontamination is probably the single most important step in detailing a car. If the surface isn’t squeaky clean, your polishes won’t be as effective and your wax, sealant or coating won’t fully bond to the surface. With the Nanoskin Autoscrub Wash Mitt, you can save time by "claying" the paint as you wash it.




Since time was limited and Trey's hands were sore from typing all week, the obvious choice for a polisher was the buttery-smooth Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher equipped with a Rupes 7 inch Yellow Polishing Pad. The Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher gets its name from its massive, industry leading 21 millimeter throw. The throw of the machine indicates the size of the orbit the pad makes. Consider this: a conventional random orbital polisher has a throw between 4 and 8 millimeters. The advantage of a larger throw is that more surface area is being covered as you polish, thus saving time.

Trey's Hyundai looked like your typical 12-year old car that has never been polished (or at least polished correctly). Check out the swirl marks:




After priming the Rupes 7 inch Yellow Polishing Pad, Trey applied two dime-sized drops of Pinnacle XMT 360 and performed a test spot.





Notice how Trey is holding the head of the polisher - he's only applying enough pressure to point the machine where he wants it. With the Rupes LHR 21ES, you don't need to apply an excessive amount of pressure because the massive throw ("stroke") does the work for you. This, in turn, reduces user fatigue.




Trey's Hyundai has relatively soft paint so the Rupes LHR 21ES paired with Pinnacle XMT 360 removed the swirl marks without any effort.




One of the many benefits of using a cleaner wax/AIO is that they deep clean the paint, removing below-surface contaminants that otherwise hinder the gloss and color from shining through. Check out how dirty the YELLOW pad was after polishing just the hood!






By combing the exceptionally large throw of the Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher with Pinnacle XMT 360, Trey's Hyundai looked brand new in a matter of hours - all with one step.
