Got the job done

I used this product to remove painted lettering from painted fiberglass. Although firm rubbing was required, it removed the lettering beautifully.

Aggressive compound but extra work

Good compound and pretty aggressive. I applied with a random orbit with foam pad and it did a great job pulling out surface scratches and oxidation.

Good compound and pretty aggressive. I applied with a random orbit with foam pad and it did a great job pulling out surface scratches and oxidation.

The compound is a tan color that lightly stained the gelcoat. This may have been removed by glaze polishing step but I didn't chance it and removed with alcohol and water before final polish.

I'll probably look for a white compound the next time around.

Comments about Super Duty Rubbing Compound:

I really had to rub aggressively for this product to work on heavily oxidized jetski hull. On the other hand, this product is perfect for mild oxidation and is safe on many surfaces.

                It dries too quick and very hard to remove when it does

                    I own a 26 year old boat it had very heavy oxidation i tried other compounds but they were not aggressive enough the 3M worked great removing most if not all on the first application i would recommend it highly

                          I just bought a hurricane fun deck boat, 2002 it was left unprotected in the sun and had lots of oxidation. the 3M product did the trick. Our boat looks great.
