Ultra Gloss Fiberglass Restoring Compound: This is a new compound which is unique in several ways because it is designed specifically for fiberglass and gelcoat: Contains oxidation removing components that break down oxidation as soon as it is applied. Contains a diminishing abrasive that gets finer as you polish, leaving a super high gloss finish. (High gloss finish in 1 step not 2 or 3!). Contains lubricants that reduce friction and heat, while aiding in the ease of application. These lubricants allow for use by hand or a high speed buffer without fear of damaging your finish. Contains waxes that penetrate into your gelcoat bringing out the original color and protecting your finish so you don't immediately have to apply a coat of wax on your new finish as you would with other compounds. As soon as ultra-gloss is applied, it starts to break down oxidation on the surface, so a ten minute lead time will actually make the surface better prepared for your buffing and compounding. Ultra-gloss will not dry on the surface. Ultra-gloss compound has a special abrasive that starts as a mid-grade compound and becomes finer as you buff ending up as a super fine polish. This process brings up the ultra gloss and showroom finish your boat once had. Ultra-gloss with its diminishing abrasive allows you to complete all the steps necessary to bring badly oxidized or dull fiberglass up to a high gloss finish in just one step. Ultra-gloss can be used by hand or by machine buffing. Because the abrasive becomes extremely fine along with the lubricating qualities in the compound, it allows you to use a high speed buffer without fear of burning or harming your gelcoat. Finally, when you are done your new high gloss finish is already protected with wax, so you don't have to go back and apply a coat of wax. (This is the last thing you want to do when you finish a compounding job!) If you are going to put the effort into restoring your gelcoat, you should use the highest quality and easiest to use compound there is - ULTRA-GLOSS!
