FAQs About Vehicle Compounds

Can I use vehicle compounds at home?

Yes, our vehicle compounds are suitable for domestic use. They allow car enthusiasts to achieve professional-grade results without needing to visit a detailing shop.

Are vehicle compounds safe for all paint types?

Yes, our high-quality vehicle compounds are safe for use on all types of paintwork. However, it’s always best to check the product instructions or consult with the manufacturer.

How often should I use a vehicle compound?

The frequency of use depends on the condition of your vehicle’s paint and the specific compound you’re using. Using a compound several times a year usually does the job.

Can compounds remove deep scratches?

Compounds can remove many surface-level scratches, but deep scratches may require more extensive repair methods.

Do I need special tools to use vehicle compounds?

While you can apply some compounds by hand, using a dual-action polisher or rotary buffer often delivers better results, especially for severe paint damage.

What’s the difference between a polish and a compound?

Compounds are more abrasive than polishes and are used to remove significant paint defects. Polishes are finer and are used to enhance the shine and smoothness after compounding.

Can I use compounds on other surfaces of my car?

Compounds are primarily designed for painted surfaces, but some can also be used on other materials like clear plastics. We recommend checking the product label for usage instructions.

How do I choose the right compound for my vehicle?

Consider the severity of the paint defects and your desired finish. For heavy defects, use a more abrasive compound like 3M Perfect-It Fast Cut Plus Extreme. For fine polishing, choose a product like 3M Perfect-It Ultrafina SE Polish.
