More boat owners and detailers trust 3M Marine Rubbing Compound to restore their boats because it works! This is a heavy duty compound for heavy oxidation. 3M Marine Rubbing Compound eliminates oxidation and leaves a smooth finish.
Gelcoat is a very tough coating used over fiberglass to make it slicker and shinier, much like clear coat is used on cars. Because gelcoat is so durable, correction can be tough but 3M Marine Rubbing Compound is formulated to cut through heavy oxidation and uncover the healthy surface underneath.
3M Marine Rubbing Compound is easy to use with a polisher. It stays wet to provide a long working time, and the compound is easy to spread and dusts less, resulting in less clean-up. Use a random orbital polisher, like the FLEX XC 3401 VRG Orbital Polisher, for even, fast application. A light cutting foam pad will help eliminate heavy oxidation. Severe cases of oxidation may require a cutting pad. Use a Cobra Microfiber Detailing Cloth to buff the area clean. 3M Marine Rubbing Compound can also be applied by hand for spot polishing or all-over restoration.
3M Marine Rubbing Compound is a true polish with no wax or fillers. Because it is a strong compound, a finishing polish may be needed to restore optimal gloss. Use 3M Marine Finesse-It II Glaze to remove compounding swirls and restore a deep gloss to fiberglass. Then apply 3M Marine Liquid Wax for protection and lasting shine.
If your boat has heavy oxidation, the only compound you need is 3M Marine Rubbing Compound.
