We Say

3M Scratch & Swirl Remover is a high quality modern abrasive polish and an excellent alternative to the lower quality traditional rubbing compounds typically found in car parts stores. 3M Scratch & Swirl Remover adapts the trusted technology and innovation found in 3M's professional products into a simple solution for car care enthusiasts. The refined formula is easy to use by hand or dual action machine, and is ideal for removing light defects and enhancing gloss ahead of adding paint protection.

Description

3M Scratch & Swirl Remover is designed to remove common paint defects such as fine scratches and swirl marks, and create a smooth, level surface in readiness for the addition of sealant or wax protection. 3M Scratch & Swirl Remover breaks down quickly and easily during use to leave a pin sharp finish that requires no further refinement. Gloss is maximised by the burnishing action of ultra-fine abrasives suspended in a base of lubricating oils. 3M Scratch & Swirl Remover contains no fillers, meaning that defect removal is permanent rather than temporary.

How To Use

3M Scratch & Swirl Remover can be applied equally well by hand or dual action machine. By hand, it should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint using either a Lake Country Hydro-Tech Cutting Hand Pad or a Lake Country Hydro-Tech Polishing Hand Pad. Only 1-2 pea-sized drops of product are required to polish a 12" x 12" area, and these should be worked in as firmly and evenly as possible until only an oily film remains. This film should then be buffed off using a PB Super Buffing Towel. For best results using a dual action polisher, 3M Scratch & Swirl Remover should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint using a Lake Country Hydro-Tech Polishing Pad. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per 18" x 18" area, and these should be worked in thoroughly at 4000-5000 orbits per minute (speed 4-5 on most dual action machine polishers) until only a thin film remains. This film should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel.
