Formerly Known as "Imperial" The Product of Choice for Boat Builders and Professional Detailers
3M's flagship product for gelcoat refinishing and mold work.
This combination compound and polish is designed to take dull, or repaired, gelcoat to full gloss with just a single product.
It combines a fast cutting compound with a fine finishing material. As you buff, the coarser compounding particles degrade as they remove oxidation, leaving the finer abrasives which polish the surface to a gloss finish.
Note - This product is less aggressive than the similar sounding Compound and Finishing Material (MMM 36044 and 36045).
Saves time, money, and effort by combining compounding and polishing into a single step
Leaves an excellent finish without swirl marks
Use for final polishing of surfaces previously sanded with P800 sandpaper
Contains no wax or silicone
Buff with a wool pad on an air or electric buffer (1500-2500 rpm)
For painted surfaces, we recommend 3M Perfect-It Rubbing Compound #06085.
