Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 32 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.

Expensive but worth every penny! USed other compounds but this had lots of working time to make a couple passes, takes out swirls and scratches on a DA polisher! No need to reach for a wool pad with a rotary ! Any beginner or novice can use this and appreciate it, as a detailer I use this for my customers since quality is what they deserve, this bottle can last me roughly 20 cars as a single step followed by either a polish or wax depending on customer needs etc production detail vs showroom quality. Anyways will order a large 128 oz love this stuff!!!! This f3 had major swirls and scratches and it came out with this compound using a DA...Came out amazing with that hi gloss + Wax...Speaks for itself
Pros-Long working time -Cuts like a compound finishes up like a polish -High Gloss! -Easy wipe off! -Amazing results!
Cons-Cost?? (Still worth it in my opinion)

Best Compound Available
I don't use this for detailing. I use it for color sanding new paint. It will easily remove 1500 grit sand scratches, and bring out a sweet shine like no other compound. When used with a wool pad on a rotary polisher, it takes a lot of work out of color sanding, and makes your paint look so much better than the traditional rubbing compounds still used in autobody and collision work. No need for expensive super fine grit papers and discs. You can stop at 1500 grit, and still produce a superior show car finish, without the effort and cost. The best 1st stage compound on the market.

I've read so many great things about the Menzerna FG-400 so I decided to give it a try. A must have for those nasty paint corrections. I'm now a Menzerna fan.
ProsCuts great and finishes down very well. Low dusting. Easy wipe off
ConsPricey but worth a penny!

The One I Will Reach For
I wish I had ordered this compound a long time ago. Once I tried it I realized how superior it is to most other compounds out there. It has a long working time, takes out almost all defects in just a few passed. Works with my rotary buffer or my forced rotation dual action polisher with any pad from wool to foam jewelling. I have used it with at least a dozen different pads and all of the results are excellent!

So I have always just used polishes in the past... NOT ANY MORE!!! Yes I will still use polishes to get that "perfect shine," however, FG-400 will be a key player in my paint correction arsenal from here on out. First thing I love about this stuff is that it really works fast to get rid of deeper scratches in the paint. Also, it makes a joke of swirl marks and the like. Second thing I like is the working time. Doesn't dry out nearly as fast as the polishes I use. I had to get used to not working the FG-400 so long as I am used to being done when the polish flashed, or in most cases, dried out. So now I just pay attention more to the paint than the product. I am still having issues with VERY deep scratches, and I may need to move down to something just a little more aggressive for those purposes. But in the long haul, FG-400 will probably take care of 99% of what I say day to day on customer's vehicles.

Using FG 400 to compound out 1200 grit scratches from wet sanding. Works great with orange hybird pad and the flex 3401. 4 0r 5 passes is all that is needed. wonderful product!

FG 400 makes dust
This product will correct all but the very worst defects but it makes a bunch of powdery dust.

I love this compound, got introduced to this compound early in my detailing experience. I love the amount of work I can accomplish with this compound. Easy to work with and apply.

With orange pad FG400 removed all imperfections on a heavily scratched and oxidized AMG CL550 daily driver. I was able to skip menzerna's Super intensive polish and follow up immediately with a final polish for a flawless finish. NO dusting, and no swirling. What a time saver! I'll deal with the noxious petroleum odor, this stuff is GOLD.

Used with Orange pad on MDX. Removed ALL RIDS and 95% of heavy scratches. Stronger petroleum smell but that was the only downside. Highly recommended.
