Pros : Dries quickly to a chalky apparent white. with some hand work using a tooth pick in the solder lines and a paper towel my solder comes out incredibly shinny and stays that way for a long time! My old finishing compoud would take days to dry completely and would show up with white caked material in crevices days later when i thought it was clean and polished, this compound is great takes an afternoon to dry or less if in the sun and then you are good to go on scrubbing!
Cons : No cons! It takes some labor to scrub it away but that means its working!
Other Thoughts : It is much thinner than the compound I was accustomed to before this but dont worry it is supposed to be.
