Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 (FG-400) 128 oz.

Cuts like a compound – finishes like a polish!

Note: Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 is the new version of Menzerna Fast Gloss Compound (FG-400). Menzerna has changed the name and label, but it is the same product you know and love. It is currently only available to select U.S. retailers.

Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 is the long anticipated new compound from Menzerna Polishing Compounds that was designed to deliver the fast cutting action of a compound with the finish and workability of a polish. Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 will quickly become an asset to the professional reconditioning industry with its ability to effortlessly remove 1200 grit sanding marks, heavy scratches, swirls and oxidation on all paint systems while leaving a high gloss finish that is not typically expected from a compound.

Menzerna Polishing Compounds made it clear to their engineers during the early development stages of Heavy Cut Compound 400; this compound needed to have a tremendous amount of cut while finishing out better than most medium-cut polishes. Most challenging of all, it had to be user friendly so beginners and professionals alike could reap the benefits. It was a feat to overcome but the masterminds at Menzerna successfully came through and the result is the long-anticipated Heavy Cut Compound 400; a true compound that finishes better than most medium-cut polishes. What’s more, Heavy Cut Compound 400 delivers a working time that will put a smile on the faces of professional detailers.

Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 is body shop safe so it doesn’t contain silicones or waxes - two things which are unwanted near fresh paint as they inhibit the paint from properly curing. Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 is the ideal compound for removing up to 1200 grit sanding marks on fresh paint because it cuts fast without creating a fuss. In most cases Heavy Cut Compound 400 will not even dust – something that is a common problem for most other compounds.

Time is money in the professional reconditioning industry and if your compound literally isn’t cutting it, then it’s time to move on and find something that works better. With so many options available from various manufacturers, it can be daunting trying to find the perfect balance of cut, finish and ease of use in a compound. Menzerna Polishing Compounds acknowledges this and takes it into consideration when developing any new product, be it a compound, polish, detail spray or finishing wax. Heavy Cut Compound 400 is a fine example of Menzerna’s commitment to excellence and it will surely become a staple alongside other Menzerna polishes in the professional reconditioning industry.


Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 can be used with a rotary (circular) or dual action (orbital) polisher. For best results, follow up with Menzerna Super Finish (SF-3500) on a foam polishing or finishing pad.

Best compound for cars and boats
This is my go to compound
New Holland, PA
Great cut/ great gloss
I've been detailing for over 6 years and I keep coming back to Menzerna FG-400. Cuts great without swirling (esp. when using Flex 3401) and also leaves behind a nice gloss. A bit pricey perhaps, but a little goes a long way compared to some cheaper compounds.

Best compound
it gives an awesome shine and has a aggressive cut to it
The best cutting compound polish i have ever used.
The Menzerna Fast Gloss Compond (FG-400) Is the best compounding polish for a freshly painted automobile. It cuts extremely well and leaves a very good gloss. You can basicly have a show room detail look by using it as a first step within a 3-step process, being followed by the Menzerna IP-2000 Intensive Polish, followed by the Menzerna SF-4000 or SF-4500. You then can have that smooth touch and brilliant shine by using your favorite sealant or wax. My personal sealent would be one of the following. BlackFire Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protection or Wolfgang Deep Gloss sealant 3.0
