What an Auto Buffing Compound Does

When you drive your car regularly, it's bound to sustain minor scratches from road debris and door dings from inconsiderate fellow motorists. That's when an auto buffing compound becomes essential. Aging cars can get a quick facelift when you apply an automotive buffing compound to remove paint transfer, scratches and stubborn stains from your car. With a little elbow grease, you can bring back that like-new look to your vehicle.

Auto Polish Compound vs. Buffing Compounds

An automobile polishing compound restores the shine and luster of your paint job. It will also remove very light scratches. An auto buffing compound is similar, but it goes a step further than polish does by removing heavy etching, scratching and oxidation from your vehicle's paint surface. You can use a polishing compound after applying a buffing compound to restore your car's smooth, shiny surface.

Removing Imperfections With Our Car Buffing Compound

Naturally, you can't eliminate every imperfection with buffing compounds. Deep scratches in the paint's surface, for example, may require the expertise of a body shop to restore a seamless look. However, you will be surprised by the difference our auto buffing compound does make. Following are a few examples of what our quality car polish and buffing compounds can do.

  • Nature Hazards: Birds, bugs and objects that fall from trees (like acorns) can all wreak havoc on your paint job. Our car polish compound removes the fallout from contact with these invasive elements.
  • Inconsiderate Neighbors: A vehicle pulls up next to yours and the doors fly open, whacking your car and leaving a scratch. Use our buffing compound to mitigate the damage from dings and light scratches.
  • Road Salt: The bane of car lovers in cold climates, road salt is corrosive, so washing it off as soon as possible is paramount. Next, treat your paint job with our car polish compound to restore that rich, shiny look.

Squeeze out a 5" line of buffing compound onto the wheel. To avoid splatter, gently press the compound into the wheel to spread it around and then work an area of about 2 square feet at a time.

Helpful tip: Be careful not to apply too much pressure when applying an auto buffing compound.

How to Get Buffing Compound Off Plastic

There are several theories on removing buffing compound for cars from plastic. Some people suggest an all-purpose cleaner or isopropyl alcohol diluted with water. We've also heard that vegetable oil will remove the residue. Some even swear by peanut butter. Whichever method you use, it's always best to test a small area of the plastic before taking on a larger area to be sure it works properly.
