What polish to use on a matt carbon fibre frame

by bezz333   August 16, 2014  

Hi everyone

Bit of a noobie on here but been cycling for many years.

What would be the best polish to us on my Canyon matt carbon fibre frame. The instructions suggest hard polish but was wondering it a hard car polish would alter the matt look and make it a satin finish?

Cheers everyone

Why would you want to polish a MATT frame? The defeats the purpose of it being matt if you want to make it shiny...

Have a look on the detailing world forum, there are some polishes specifically made for matt finished cars, but they are all rather pricey, best to have a read on users experiences there.

I don't want to make it shiney, just to protect the surface from grease, dirt, snot etc
