Product Details

3M Perfect-It Heavy Cutting Compound removes P800 or finer scratches and heavy oxidation to leave behind a head-turning, high-gloss shine. This improved, fast-cut formula is easier to use, especially in warm weather, and allows you to use less of it, so you save money.

While it can be part of a 3-step polishing process (cut, polish, & wax), you can achieve spectacular results in just two steps by following up with 3M Perfect-It Boat Wax (sold separately) to preserve the shine.

Heavy cutting compound is available in Pint, Quart, Gallon, and 5-Gallon sizes.
