3M™ Finesse-It™ Marine Paste Compound
Recommended step prior to polishing and waxing
Formulated for boat reconditioning of heavily oxidized surfaces and finishes
3M™ Finesse-It™ Marine Paste Compound brings the appearance of boats back to life by the use of aggressive abrasive mineral to cut through heavy oxidation and chalky film to renew faded gelcoats. Our compound turns back the clock on the effects of weathering to restore the original vibrancy of the color. The abrasive mineral in the compound also allows you to remove minor scratches, rust and exhaust stains from gelcoat finishes. Compounding is a necessary first step prior to polishing or waxing to renew a glossy finish that glistens in the sunlight and water.

Recommended step prior to polishing and waxing
Compounding is advised when a surface is so weathered that polish is minimally effective in creating a shine. When that's the case, it's time to compound. Apply the compound and rub it in a circular motion to allow the abrasive mineral to cut through oxidation, grime and filmy residue. You'll know the compound is working when the surface turns from dull and lifeless to glossy and shiny. Once the surface has been compounded, it's time to preserve and enhance the shine (PDF, 591 Kb) by polishing and waxing the boat.

White color reduces the potential of staining light-colored boats
Our 3M™ Finesse-It™ Marine Paste Compound offers several competitive advantages. First, it comes in a white color that reduces the chance of staining light colored boats. Second, our compound stays wet during compounding, reducing heat build-up, pitting, burning, and print through. Because our compound doesn't dry out too quickly, it allows a greater area to be compounded with less material. This compound buffs to a high gloss, requiring less glazing for a final finish. This compound contains no silicones or waxes.
