Polishes and compounds can be used to buff out gelcoat and most paints, with one exception—Awlgrip—which cannot be buffed or polished. On the other hand, Awlcraft 2000 can be buffed and polished.
Polyurethane paints: Single-part polyester paint should be cured at least five days at 70°F; longer in colder temperatures. Start by wet sanding any runs and imperfections with 600-grit, then 1000-grit sandpaper. Clean the surface and buff with a heavy buffing compound to remove any sanding scratches. Finish with a light polish and a good wax job for a bright, beautiful shine.
Enamel paints: We do not recommend polishing enamel paints.
Gelcoat: Gelcoats can be easily polished and waxed.
