CGC-3 Heavy Duty Compound is equipped with heavy duty abrasives that work simultaneously to target, repair and remove medium to heavy blemishes that stand out on a vehicle's surface leaving behind a smooth, clean and glossy finish. CGC-3 effortlessly removes heavier scratches, swirl marks, oxidation and over-spray. CGC-3 Heavy Duty Compound is a thick, highly aggressive, fast working compound formulated for use on OEM and aftermarket painted surfaces. Synthetic micro-abrasives within the formula remove heavy oxidation. This powerful compound is ideal for the removal of deeper surface defects and blemishes on almost any painted surface. The advanced heavy duty compound is formulated with natural oils that not only brightens color, but also works seamlessly into the surface to remove scuffs, scratches, and swirl marks while reviving paint and cleansing surfaces allowing for proper wax or sealant application. The unique and exclusive formula in Chemical Guys CGC-3 Heavy Duty Compound is extremely tough but incredibly easy to apply and use.

How To Use:
  • How to Use

    Hand Application:
    For best results use out of direct sunlight.  Bright light and direct sunlight will reflect off of the surface glaring your vision and not allow for optimal view of scratches and swirls.
    Using a clean terry towel or microfiber applicator pad or towel, apply a quarter size amount of product.
    Work in small areas, applying using a small circular motion.
    Rub until dry. Buff away excess product. Repeat as necessary.
         
    Machine Application:
    For best results use out of direct sunlight.
    Start by making sure the surface to be compounded is clean and dry.
    New or fresh paint should be fully cured.
    Use a Hex-Logic green pad for medium cut, orange for medium to heavy cut, yellow for most aggressive cut.
    For maximum cut use a wool pad.
    For Lighter polishing work and finishing work you can use the white polishing pad.
    Apply product to pad in an "X" shape and if needed use a pad lubricant to assure maximum lubricity if needed.
    With polisher in  "off" position, spread the compound over about a 2 x 2 sq. ft. area.
    Polish at 1200-1800 RPM (5000-6000 OPM with a dual action polisher.
    Start by  working slowly across surface, then up and down.
    Always check the progress of your work to see if blemish or imperfection has been removed.
    If imperfection or blemish is gone, reduce the pressure of machine and continue buffing to a high gloss and perfect finish is achieved.
    It may be necessary to switch to a lighter compound or polish.
    If during buffing the pad becomes dry, spray a little Buffing Pad Conditioner onto it and continue buffing.
    Occasionally wipe the area with a wet or lightly damp microfiber cloth to better view the results.
    If necessary, follow with lighter compound or polish to restore and finish.
    To protect your final results Chemical Guys recommends to always always apply a sealant after compounding.
    Allow polish to dry, then buff to a deep gloss.

    After Polish:
    Remember for optimal protection and durability, follow all polish with a wax or paint sealant.
    Though CUT compounds will outshine most waxes it does not contain any waxes, sealants or protective qualities.
    For optimal protection we suggest Jet Seal 109.

Hello Chemical Guys,

Just wanted to say how much I love your produces.  I am attaching some pictures of a 1975 Ford Courier that I detailed.  Paint was looking horrible and customer didn't have any idea of what could be done to make it better.

I told him about your products and the confidence I had in what they could do.  He was BLOWN AWAY by the results.  I love being able to transform vehicles like this and knowing that I am using "the best
produces" that are available.

With this job I used: Hex yellow, green, and white pads.  Heavy duty ez cut, scratch and swirl remover, and pro polish.  Finished up with two coats of Extreme Top Coat Sealant.  I loved the results and so did the customer.

Thanks for making the best products ever,

Brandon

This is my new favorite product! August 10, 2006
Reviewer: Dan Schmidt from Perkasie, PA United States  
How many times has a customer brought their car to you after they have rubbed against the entrance to their garage?  The car gets that latex house paint streaked down the side.  How do you get it off?  Can't use a machine.  The high RPMs just gums it up and does not remove anything.  There may be other ways to get it off (I am a detailing rookie) but I found out that taking this compound and putting some on a cloth and lightly rubbing the latex takes it right off!  I can spend 15 minutes removing the latex paint and the customer responds to it like they just hit the lottery.  They love it.
