    3M Premium Mold and Tooling Compound aggressively removes sanding scratches in tooling gel coat (P600 or finer discs P1000 or finer 3M™ Wetordry™ sheets), reducing sanding and compounding time while saving time and money for marine boatyards.

    Eliminate Sanding Scratches
    3M Premium Mold and Tooling Compound rids boats of those annoying scratches that result from sanding. Our mold and tooling compound cuts quickly and leaves a fine finish that is easily polished to a high gloss. We recommend following up with 3M™ Finesse-It™ II Finishing Material (PN 09048) for a clean high gloss finish.

    Special Formula for Tooling Gel Coats
    We recommend this compound for tooling gelcoats, which have different properties than regular gelcoats. A tooling gelcoat is typically harder than regular gelcoat, and therefore is often used for applications where no flexing will occur. Tooling gelcoats are ideal for molds that will not flex but will be polished to a high luster.

    3M Science Provides the Solution
    To eliminate the fine scratches that come from sanding, we turned to science. We formulated a compound that works with the hard surface of a tooling gelcoat, resulting in a smooth surface that can be polished to a mirror-like high gloss.
