Cleaning and Restoration

Whether you are restoring a boat or just trying to maintain its shine, 3M have bespoke marine products dedicated to common cleaning and restoration applications. When your boat is out of the water it is the perfect time to clean and compound the hull to remove oxidisation, polish for a deep gloss, and then wax to protect.

The products are ordered in level of aggression from top to bottom so whether you need to remove scratches or just want to clean and remove very light oxidation, the recommended product and accessories can be easily selected.
