Does Double Duty for Marine Detailing
3M™ Marine Compound and Finishing Material restores the lustrous beauty of boats by eliminating oxidation, scratches, scuff marks and other surface blemishes. Our unique formulation combines a compound with finishing polishes, which does a double duty task of removing imperfections and polishing in one application. The simplicity and time savings of our "two-in-one" product with compound and polish makes it a favorite among boat detailing professionals.

Our compound and finishing material is highly rated for scratch removal. Use this product to remove P600-P800 dual action or P1000-P1200 sand scratches with a wool compounding pad. You may also use an air or electric buffer (1500-2500 Max. RPM) equipped with Compound Buff Pads (sold separately). It has a fast cut and delivers a swirl-free finish.

Directions for Use
Before using this product, please reference Product Label and/or Safety Data Sheet for Health and Safety Information:
  • Shake container before using.
  • Apply sufficient material to surface to work a 2 foot by 2 foot area. To minimize slinging, spread the compound over the surface with the compounding pad before starting the machine.
  • Start machine using light to medium pressure.
  • Reduce pressure as compound starts to dry, allowing material to polish surface.
  • Repeat, only if necessary, to remove any remaining sanding marks or swirls.
  • The combined benefits of a compound and polish in one product mean you spend more time relaxing on your boat out on the water and less time detailing it. Enjoyment is what having a boat is all about!

Customer Reviews
3M™ Marine Compound and Finishing Material is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely incredible! Tried this on my hull and was very impressed with the results. Used an electric buffer with a wool pad. The boat is a 1999 Cruisers and due to other projects, hasn’t had the hull below the rub line waxed in over 5 years. This product, with a little elbow grease has brought the hull back to showroom condition.
