These easy to use products

:
• are designed for gel coat such as boat hulls, molds, composites industry primers, and topcoats
• remove scratches from and polish composite patterns, plugs, masters, molds, and finished parts
• do not contain solvents, waxes, oils, or polymers that obscure the true surface
• are made from tallows and natural grits: no harm to environment
• are applied by using a spray bottle of water to mist the part before buffing

Aqua Buff 1000-F and 1000-W fast cut compounds

:
• remove deep scratches and heavy oxidation
• remove scratches and clean gelcoated patterns, plugs, molds, and finished products
• also used to remove scratches from and to clean metals and painted surfaces
• give high sheen to cultured marble, solid surface materials, and black/dark color pigments
• sanding scratch removal depends on hardness of tooling coat: compounds won't get 320 grit scratches out of tooling such as post cure vinyl ester resins

Aqua Buff 2000 polishing compounds

:
• remove finer scratches, swirl marks, and light oxidation
• a versatile product strong enough for most uses
• leave a defect free surface with a high gloss

Aqua Buff 1000-F cutting compound

Fast cut compound, off-white color, used for aggressive removal of 320 to 600 grit sanding scratches or heavy oxidation. Great for use on hard gelcoat: grit allows elimination of deeper scratching. Can be too aggressive on soft surfaces such as Duratec primers. Better for polishing white gelcoat than the 1000-W compound listed below, and works a bit faster than the 1000-W. This compound takes out sanding scratches quickly but will leave some swirl marks. Please call for freight prepaid price on 55 gallon drums.

Aqua Buff 1000-W cutting compound

Fast cut compound, blue-green color, designed to remove heavy oxidation and sanding scratches. Less aggressive than the 1000-F listed above. Great for buffing soft products like the Duratec primers. Not recommended for use on white projects due to the color of compound. Can leave a blue haze on oxidized gel coat or white gel coat. But is easier to see on some other surfaces. This compound takes out sanding scratches quickly but will leave some swirl marks. Please call for freight prepaid price on 55 gallon drums.

Aqua Buff Tuff-Stuff cutting compound

The most aggressive cutting compound. Used when polisher does not want to use a spray bottle to mist part while buffing. Rapidly smooths and polishes gelcoat and composite patterns, plugs, masters, and product molds. Removes scratches and cleans FRP parts, metals, and painted surfaces. Apply Tuff-Stuff in three (3) quarter-size spots over a 1' x 3' area. Use a rotary buffer less that 2500 RPM to prevent surface burning. Use wool or wool-blend pads. Surface should look wet. If not, apply more Tuff-Stuff. Buff until haze is eliminated. Repeat process to eliminate scratches from exceptionally hard surfaces. Follow with Aqua-Buff GlossMaster Polish for the ultimate shine.
