3M Scratch Remover is a safe and effective way to remove scratches, swirls, and medium oxidation by hand or machine. Use it on clear coat or single stage paint with excellent results. 3M Scratch Remover uses fine minerals to actually remove the scratch, rather than filling it in. All you’ll see is smooth, flawless paint!
3M Scratch Remover removes grade 1200 or finer sand scratches, other fine scratches, medium oxidation, coarse swirl marks or water spots, and leaves a fine finish. 3M Scratch Remover is excellent for hand compounding applications.
3M Scratch Remover is a thick cream packed with ultra fine abrasive minerals. As you rub the cream over the blemish, these minerals level the edges of scratches and swirls to render them invisible. 3M Scratch Remover contains no fillers so you can see the real results of your work. Follow up with 3M Performance Finish to seal in the shine.
To apply with a polisher:
Apply two or three lines of 3M Scratch Remover to the paint. This should be enough to cover a 2 x 2 sq. ft. area.
Work the polish using a light compounding pad (CCS Orange or Edge Orange) on your polisher. Polish until 3M Scratch Remover turns into a thin film.
Buff off residue with a soft microfiber bonnet over a lambswool pad on your polisher. You can also buff by hand with a Microfiber Detailing Cloth.
To apply by hand:
Apply a quarter size amount of 3M Scratch Remover to a foam applicator pad.
Rub in a circular motion until the polish dries.
Buff off the residue using a Microfiber Detailing Cloth.
