Compounding" is the use of abrasive compounds to grind the surface layers of severely damaged or dull paint. Compounding is going one step further than polishing, since this process requires a more aggressive cleaner to revitalize old dull and worn out paint. It should be done in extreme situations only. 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. Compounding is a Type C Paint Condition process for used paint that has heavy scratches, spotting. Compounding ALWAYS requires polishing or waxing afterwards to fill the leveled areas in the paint. Be sure you know that the vehicle requires compounding or not. Some Auto Magic more aggressive polishes combine the 2 step compound/polish step into 1 polishing step. This will save time and effort.
