Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 8 oz.

Cuts like a compound – finishes like a polish!

Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400 (FG400) 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 Menzerna 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 Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound 400; a true compound that finishes better than most medium-cut polishes. What’s more, Menzerna 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. Menzerna 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-4000) on a foam polishing or finishing pad.

The best
I have tried multiple compound and pad combinations and nothing was able to give me results like this. I used it with a lake country yellow ccs pad and it cut extremely well. Then tried it with a lake country microfiber heavy cutting pad and it just destroyed swirls and imperfections. It finishes extremely well and 2 pea size drops will do an entire hood. It is a bit pricey but totally worth it. I also experienced 0 dusting. Followed up with super finish 3500 and some collinite wax and the paint is sbow car perfect!
ProsExtremely long work time. Very little to no dust. Cuts very well. Leaves awesome finish.

Best I've ever used
Absolutely amazing! Everything you've read or heard about the fg400 is true. Its virtually a one step product. Wool/Rotarty, DA/Foam, DA/MF cutting pad... it doesn't care!! I think the only reason they label it as a compound is the amount of cut, because it feels and finishes like a polish. As long as you dont overheat it, you can work it for seems like forever.
ProsCuts deep finishes like a polish potential for a one step compound very little dusting work time is amazing
Consnone that I can find

Better than Meguiars M101
I started using Meguiars M101, after being a long time M105 user. I was much happier with the 101 over the 105. However I started using the Menzerna and I will not go back to Meguiars compound now. The dust with 101 and 105 is atrocious. It takes longer to clean the dust than it does to detail the car. The Menzerna has zero dust. It cuts just as good as the 101 and works just as long. They are almost similar in every category, until it gets to dust. Menzerna wins hands down.
ProsNo dusting
Cons$$$, but worth it
