  • Scratch Removal Compound 

Scratch removal compounds are an abrasive that you rub across the area of the scratch. Polishing the area may be required after applying the compound. Do not confuse this with polish compounds used to enhance shine and not fix scratches.

These cloths are made with new materials that can make scratch removal very easy. Simply wash your car and wipe the cloth across the surface area of the scratch. These can be applied on any color  of paint.

This is a delicate procedure that, if not done correctly, can cause worse damage to your car’s finish. If you are not comfortable doing these repairs on your own, bring your car to a detailer and have it done professionally.
