The use of abrasive compounds to remove the surface layers of severely damaged or dull paint goes one step further than polishing, since this process requires a more aggressive cleaner to revitalize old dull and worn out paint. This process quickly and effectively levels the paint by smoothing the surface and removing dead oxidized paint. Compounding removes the upper most layer of oxidized material by actually stripping or cutting the first layer of paint.
This process is for used paint that has heavy scratches, spotting, 1200-2000 grit sandpaper marks and/or surface contaminants. Using compound ALWAYS requires polishing or waxing afterwards to fill the leveled areas in the paint.
