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. Follow up with 3M Performance Finish to seal in the shine.
