✅ Removes up to 1500 grit sand scratches.

🇺🇸 Made in the USA with our 100% product guarantee.

All we can say about Brighten & Tone is this product is bound to leave its mark in the boat detailing world! In this new age where machines like the Rupes reign supreme, there needs to be a product designed for them…enter Brighten & Tone.

We designed this unique formula to be used specifically for DA polishers but will cut just as aggressively with a rotary buffer. 

This game changer is virtually dust free and will cut through oxidation effortlessly. 

Comprised of diminishing abrasives, B&T will work into a fine polish as you continue to buff and leave a brilliant finish in one simple step! 

Add incredible gloss with an easy to use medium compound

Benefits of Brighten & Tone

  • Cutting-edge Formula – Designed to be used with a DA polisher and provide as much cut as it would with a rotary
  • Remove 1500 grit sand marks – Will remove 1500 grit and finer sand scratches.
  • Virtually Dust Free – One of the great features is it provides little to no dusting which is one of our biggest pet peeves when buffing a boat, is the sand pit left behind on the deck after heavy cutting.
  • High Lubricity – A lot of lubrication provides you a long working time even while working in direct sunlight.
  • Aggressive Cut – Don’t be fooled by the fact this is a medium-cut compound. It can keep up with the most aggressive compounds if need be, she packs a big punch when it comes to cutting through stubborn oxidation in gel coat.
  • Smells Great – A light fruity scent makes working with B&T a pleasurable experience.

What do you do after successfully exfoliating your gelcoat? Give it some additional cleansing! Enter Brighten & Tone…you’ve take the heavy pores out of the gel and did a nice job leveling it out but you still need to refine your gelcoat even further. One unique aspect behind this amazing medium-cut compound is the formula is DA polisher preferable but works with rotary’s just as well.

Brighten & Tone will help level out the gelcoat even more making the surface even smoother. This unique medium cut polishing compound has a lot of cutting power and minimal dusting. It will start out with a good amount of grit and progressively work into a fine polish as you work the product in. As with Exfoliate we added a ton of lubricity to give you a really long working time.

After you’ve properly massaged Brighten & Tone into the gelcoat, it will leave the boats surface in most cases swirl free and ready for your sunscreen application. If not swirl free then you will have minimal swirls left behind.

You know you’ve worked this unique compound in enough when you’re left with a slight haze of product. You’ll be left with a high gloss shine coming off your boats surface! Make sure you have your sunglasses handy.

After a quick toning session, your boats surface will be ready for moisturizing. Exfoliate followed up by Brighten & Tone is the perfect 1…2 punch for leaving your boats fiberglass dripping wet and hydrated.


  1. Apply a bead of product to a 2ft X 2ft area if using a rotary polisher. If using a DA place 4-5 drops on a foam pad.
  2. Using a rotary polisher, slowly buff using an overlapping pattern with enough pressure to eliminate surface defects.
  3. As the compound material diminishes, finesse the paint or gel surface, progressively using less pressure until a high gloss is achieved.
  4. Wipe off excess product with a microfiber towel.

    Will never not have this product within reach! This product is multi dimensional and can clear up haze with a variety of different pads. Anytime I’m about to be polishing on a boat that comes through my shop, this is the first product that I’m grabbing.

    Used it for the first time on a Supra WB that was sold. Blew me away. I will be taking on this line for sure this spring. 90% of my work is boats also.
