Product Description

The 3D ACA 500 X-tra Cut Compound helps you remove medium to heavy imperfections faster than before! The secret to the corrective power in this compound is the Alpha Ceramic Alumina. This water-based abrasive helps provide low heat output and high-speed leveling that will correct even the most challenging clearcoats. ACA 500 is easy to use, easy to clean-up (low dusting), is sun friendly and contains no harmful solvents, kerosene or OSHA regulated crystalline silica. If you have lighter imperfections or need to perform a second polishing step, the 3D ACA 520 Finishing Polish paired with a light corrective pad is a fantastic choice. Working by hand or with a polisher, reach for the 3D ACA 500 X-tra Cut Compound to remove heavy imperfections with ease!

3D all the way. I grabbed some Rupes white yellow and blue foam pads and this stuff along with the 520

Best compound available, and I've tried a bunch! Cuts fast, low dust, and super easy cleanup. Not cheap, but no more expensive than Sonax, Menzerna, or the worst of the bunch, 3M, that I got away from.

The staples of my arsenal are:

ACA520 Polish
3D ONE Hybrid
ACA500 Cpmpound

Because 3D ONE excels at its job so well, it is very rare that I have to break out the Big Dog that is ACA500.

What I love about 3D products is that they all have a similar feel to them the compound and polish share feel characteristics where the compound feels and behaves like a polish. I was used to dusty, gritty, dry feeling compounds, but not here with 3D. Even ACA500's brother - AAT501 shared this trait. This means that they have a fairly smooth feel, and way less dusting than a lot of other compounds. Stays wet on the surface until you are done cutting.

Easy clean up, and for the amount of cut it delivers, the finish is very good.

I use it mostly with Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber pads, and the cut is just excellent with this pairing.

Also works great with the Green Hex Logic pads as well.

The only thing I don't care for is the scent. Both ACA500, and AAT501 have a very strong, piercing, lingering scent that on the surface smell good, but after a while it gets annoying. It sticks for a long time, and is harder to wash out of the pads than the abrasive particles themselves. If I could ask 3D one thing, it would to dial back the scent in their heavy cut compounds - just a touch.

Other than that, it's going to be tough to find a heavier cutting, more user friendly compound. Worth every penny!
