How we tested it:

We have been using Menzerna 400 for the best part of 18 months in the detailing studio now and in this time been able to gain a great understanding of the products capabilities. We mainly look here at its correctional ability, finish left and usability of the product. We have observed this on a wide range of paintwork systems.

We Liked:

  • Fast cutting action, effective on all paint systems, including harder German clearcoats and similar.
  • Depending on paint system, can also refine well to a genuine one step finish.
  • Fast effective action. Can achieve a one step correction\enhancement in a single set.

We Didn’t Like:

  • Can be a dusty\messy product to use.
  • Clogs up pads quickly. Regular cleaning of pad during use or change of pads are required more often than other products.
  • One step capability depends on paint system. Can hologram\marr softer paints.


Menzerna have long established themselves as a main player in the paintwork correction industry both by detailers and bodyshops. If you ask any professional detailer, it is likely they will have used Menzerna 400 at some point. It is clear within your first use of the product to understand why, in terms of fast correctional ability with a degree of refinement there are few that come close. It is genuinely possible to get near perfect results quickly and safely even for a new user of the product. Where the product falls slightly down is in terms of its ease of use beyond the finish. You will need to account for cleaning the pads more, changing the pads more and managing clogging of your pad face. Also be mindful on softer paints that it is likely you will need a second stage. Factor this in and accept this and you have a product that should always be on your shelf.
