Professional detailers love products that are easy to use, produce consistent results and don’t require additional steps to use. Time is money in the world of professional auto detailing so you are always looking for products that produce quality results in less time. Menzerna FG400 Fast Gloss Compound is a product that can save time without sacrificing results. This holds especially true when you can compound and finish in 1 step on some paint with FG400! The Fast Gloss Compound is made without silicone or fillers so the results you see are what you get. The compound can be applied with a random orbital or rotary buffer while achieving outstanding results. This makes it not only great for professional use, but enthusiasts who enjoy detailing their car as well. Whether you use a Porter Cable, Griot’s Garage, Rupes, Flex or rotary buffer, you are more than capable of correcting imperfections with Fast Gloss.
One of the best features about Menzerna FG400 is the low dusting formula. Some compounds are notorious for leaving behind lots of dusting, which creates additional work after using the buffer. The fact that you don’t have compounding dust to clean up, saves you time, aggravation and ensures you don’t reintroduce imperfections when trying to remove the dust. This is a huge benefit to professional detailers. It seems with newer compounds and better buffers, the need for 3 or more correction steps is becoming less and less.
Detailers Domain also has another great car documented using FG400. This was a hit and run scuff on a Subaru BRZ. As Phil assessed the damage, he was unsure if polishing it would remove the scuff mark. The photos after show what FG400 was able to do with a microfiber cutting pad (left) and a more aggressive Surbuf pad (right) with the Rupes polisher.
Overall, I know Phil at Detailers Domain has been enjoying the Menzerna FG400 Fast Gloss Compound. He says the ability to one step a car is a huge time saver and is helping him profit more per detail.

Esoteric Auto Detail demonstrates using the Menzerna FG400 on a Rupes polisher and the outstanding results it produced on this Ferrari 458 Spider.
Read about just how bad this poor Ferrari 458 Spider came from the factory. Luckily for the owner, Esoteric Auto Detail was there to restore the paint to a condition worthy of being called new!
Travis Kent, owner of Dream Detail, shared a picture of what he was able to achieve using Menzerna FG400 and a Rupes buffer on this black Mustang.
Fan Richard Dunaway had the following to say about FG400:
It’s my go-to compound! I use a porter cable 5.5″ hydro tech pads this product is awesome finishes out so glossy for a compound most would be satisfied with how it finishes and not follow up. I figure good quality product does a great job but should be followed through and perfected with menzerna 4500. Mirror, depth and gloss that with those two paired up would be hard to beat…
