About Cutting Compound
For heavily damaged, oxidised and water marked paint jobs, a good cutting compound may be the only way to truly restore a factory shine to your beloved car once more. Helping you deal with all manner of damage and neglect, these cutting compounds and rubbing compounds are the ideal choice for all detailers.
How Cutting Compound Works
Cutting compound is essentially a harsher, more abrasive form of car polish, going on before a wax to deal with the heaviest scratches, sandmarks, swirls and oxidation. Cutting compound varies in type and and strength, and while many rubbing compounds are able to be applied by hand, some cutting compounds are designed for use with powered car buffers or polishers to properly cut through contaminants and damage.
Ideally, a good cutting compound will leave a fresh layer of paintwork in it's wake, that can then be built upon with either a finishing polish or a strong layer of wax. Keep in mind that a cutting compound may not be for every paint job, and they're really only designed for paint jobs that have come under heavy damage, neglect or exposure to the elements over an extended period of time. For simple scratches or swirl marks, there are many dedicated swirl and scratch removers available in our great range of car polish.
