Detailed Description

3M™ Perfect–It™ Rubbing Compound
Step 1

General Description

Use 3M™ Perfect–It™ Rubbing Compound annually to enhance your sailplane finish. The rubbing compound is designed to remove grade P1200 and finer sand paper scratches. However, we recommend finishing with 1500 grit wet sand paper before starting with the rubbing compound. Be sure to follow up with Wings & Wheels WX Seal &Block for the ultimate in gel coat preservation.

3™ Perfect–It™ Rubbing Compound combines strength and finesse, removing fine scratches and defects. It was originally engineered as a paint rubbing compound for use with newer clear coats. It is commonly used on gel coat finishes today. The innovative combination of mineral and chemical technology cuts the fastest, minimizing pad heating. It maximizes productivity while still leaving the finest finish, minimizing machine polishing in the next step. It leaves such a fine finish.
