Manufacturer's Description

Menzerna Fast Gloss FG 400 (https://detailersdomain.com/Menzerna-FG-400--Fast-Gloss-Compound-Pint_p_822.html) the very latest outstanding compounding polish from Menzerna.
Menzerna Fast Gloss FG 400 (https://detailersdomain.com/Menzerna-FG-400--Fast-Gloss-Compound-Pint_p_822.html)contains even more ultra fine abrasive so can now remove sanding marks up to 1200 grit whilst at the same time producing exceptional levels of gloss. We have found this to be a truly exceptional product when used by either Dual Action or Rotary polisher, quickly removing swirls and scratches even on tough paints leaving a truly exceptional level of gloss for such a correction compound.

Like all products from Menzerna, Fast Gloss (https://detailersdomain.com/Menzerna-FG-400--Fast-Gloss-Compound-Pint_p_822.html) is free of silicone and fillers so therefore results are permanent.

Product Highlights:

- More abrasiveness: Elimination of sanding marks of grit 1200 ultra fast
- High gloss: Within one-step process creation of impeccable high gloss
- One-step polish: Saving time due to one-step process with high abrasiveness and high gloss
- All-purpose: Suitable for all types of clear coats

Car was brought in to us after Hurricane Sandy for a clean up. We decided this would be a great test for Menzerna FG 400 (https://detailersdomain.com/Menzerna-FG-400--Fast-Gloss-Compound-Pint_p_822.html). We figured this would be 2 steps on this car, start wtih Menzerna FG 400 (https://detailersdomain.com/Menzerna-FG-400--Fast-Gloss-Compound-Pint_p_822.html) and finish with Menzerna SF 4000 (https://detailersdomain.com/Menzerna-SF-4000-aka-Super-Finish-PO106FA-Pint_p_134.html) or Sonax Fine Abrasive (https://detailersdomain.com/Sonax-Fine-Abrasive-Paste-55_p_816.html) or Sonax Nano Polish (https://detailersdomain.com/Sonax-Nano-Polish-36_p_815.html)........well we were a bit surprised take a look.

After the wipe down we found a few more rids, we took care of them with few passes of FG 400 and we got to a last step ready
