Starke Elevate Medium Cut Compound


Elevate is a marine grade medium cut compound that delivers amazing cutting power while finishing virtually almost swirl-free. Elevate is a non-dusting, synthetic-abrasive polishing compound specifically designed to combat today's harder paints, clear coats, & gel coats.

Elevate will easily remove scratches and swirls created from Restructure while perfectly preparing the surface for the next step, our swirl remover, either Ignition or Triple P. After this step, follow with Starke Sealant of choice. Many detailers, especially on white surfaces, will decide Ignition is not be needed because of the excellent finish that Elevate leaves.

Elevate can be used on both paint and gel coat, designed to remove 1200-1500 grit sand scratches. We suggest using wool, foamed-wool, or a medium grade foam pad while polishing on either rotary or random-orbital polisher.

    How can we help?


    Will there be hands on demonstration?

    Absolutely. We will have a boat in the shop to work on. We typically focus on the hull sides. All the Starke products, pads and machines will be on display and available for use.

    Will there be classroom work?

    Yes. We like to sit down and go over some over the basics. We will have a presentation and slideshow. We start by introducing everyone. We like to ask why each person came and what they wanted to gain from this experience. Once we figure that out we can then dial in the message to focus on where everyone needs the most information.

    Is this an accreditation course?

    Yes. Sign up for this course to become a Starke Certified Installer and be listed on our site and receive special discounts on Starke products.

    If I am a DIYer, can I attend this course.

    Absolutely. This class is for the professional or the enthusiast. The techniques we will be teaching work across the board.
