Menzerna Heavy Cut HC400
Menzerna Heavy Cut Compound HC400 is the ‘cutting’ polish is our 3 step Menzerna system. This NEW formula is designed to quickly remove sanding marks, scratches and oxidation however also retain a high gloss finish. Unlike older style compounds this polish is non-gritty and very smooth.
Formerly Fast Gloss 500 was the most aggressive cut in the Menzerna range, however this new HC400 offers even more cut but with a deceptively smooth texture and a high gloss finish. In some instances found that a single step achieved great results.
This Menzerna Polish is designed to remove up to 1500 grit sanding marks, and is suggested for use with Cutting or even Wool Pads. Ideally this polish is used after wet sanding with 2000 or 3000 grit paper or discs if required.
The Menzerna OEM range are designed for most paint finishes including solid colour, regular clear coat and CeramiClear (e.g. late model Mercedes and BMW). Care should be taken when working with older softer paint finishes.
Best results are achieved by using with a rotary or random orbital polisher. All Menzerna polishes have excellent lubricating properties so do not need water to keep them working, simply work the polish by multiple passes to break down abrasive clusters and then wipe away the thin residue with a clean microfibre cloth.
The paint surface requires finishing following HC400, we would suggest Medium Cut 2400 to refine and develop depth, gloss and further clarity on the paintwork.

You’ll be amazed how much of a gloss you get from this ‘Heavy Cut’ (coarse) compound! It finishes more finely than any old-fashioned cutting compound, and is particularly useful on harder clearcoats found on German cars (VW, Mercedes, etc.) where other compounds are ineffective. Follow with Menzerna 3500 for amazing results; but even without a second step, the HC400 gives what most people would consider a lovely shine; just a little hazy. The downside is that HC400 can be very dusty, especially if you don’t use quite enough; expect to wash the car down after polishing. Use with a firm pad such as Rupes ‘blue’. On paints with heavy orange peel (some modern cars), try using with a softer pad, to keep the polish in contact with the paint. On softer paints (e.g. Italian, Japanese) consider using Rupes ‘blue’ or ‘green’ compound and pad instead - less dusty.
Worked well with out to much pressure and removed the top layer of contaminants leaving it ready for the SF3000.
