We Say

3M Performance Finish is a high performance synthetic paint sealant that vastly outperforms the low quality sealants and waxes typically found in car parts stores. Like most synthetic paint sealants, it offers limited richness and gloss, but more than makes up for this in terms of the reflectivity, flake pop and slickness it imparts. Easy to apply and buff off, we recommend applying two coats of 3M Performance Finish at the outset for maximum durability, followed by routine maintenance with Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer.

Key Features

Beading 6/10 (Compared To Others)
Durability 2 Months + (Average Value)
Slickness 8/10 (Compared To Others)


3M Performance Finish is a polymer-based synthetic paint sealant designed to seal and protect modern automotive paint finishes. It can be layered to build up additional gloss and protection, and can be topped with further coats of wax protection to give an even deeper shine if desired. Following easy application, 3M Performance Finish effectively adds a layer of armour to painted surfaces that stubbornly resists the British elements for two to three months at a time.

How To Use

3M Performance Finish should be applied by hand. For best results, apply it to freshly polished paint using a Meguiar's Soft Foam Applicator Pad (try to avoid getting it on unpainted trims, but if you do be sure to wipe it off straight away, otherwise staining may occur). Only 2-3 pea-sized drops of product are required per panel, and these should be applied as thinly and evenly as possible to produce a film that should be buffed off immediately using a PB Deluxe Buffing Towel (there's no need to allow it to dry fully before it is removed; if you do you may find it more difficult to remove).
