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.

Best Uses

  • Removing heavy oxidation

Comments about Super Duty Rubbing Compound:

The 3m rubbing compound from West Marine is an amazing product. I used this product after wet sanding a 21 yr. old boat with extreme oxidation and the results were fantastic! The product was easy to use and cut straight through the tough stuff (scuff marks, minor scratches, oxidation, etc.) with minimal effort. If your restoring an older boat this product should be in your arsenal, period! #rubadub

      Comments about Super Duty Rubbing Compound:

      There's really not much to say when it comes to 3M's Compound. When used with 3M's wool pad it was able to cut right though the toughest oxidation on our gelcoat.

        Best Uses

        • Mild oxidation on boat hull

        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.
