Your first step to creating perfection on all paint finishes!
BLACKFIRE Compound was developed using the latest German technology for OEM applications. It removes up to 1,000 grit sanding scratches on fresh paint and an impressive range of imperfections from cured paint finishes. Application is user-friendly with a dual-action orbital or rotary polisher. BLACKFIRE Compound is the first step in creating a head-turning shine!
This is a companion product to BLACKFIRE Polish designed to remove deeper swirls, scratches and defects in ceramic particle and scratch-resistant clear coats. This is the same abrasive technology used at the OEM level by German and domestic automakers. Use BLACKFIRE Compound on paint flaws that cannot be removed with BLACKFIRE Polish.
BLACKFIRE Compound is designed for machine application with either a dual action or rotary/circular machine polisher. Most 2,000 grit and deeper swirls, scratches, spots and defects in ceramic particle and scratch-resistant clear coats cannot be removed by hand. BLACKFIRE Compound provides the muscle needed to level imperfections in all types of paint.
For the best results, apply BLACKFIRE Compound with a dual action polisher using a CCS Orange Light Cutting Pad. These orange pads are used at the OEM level on ceramic particle and scratch-resistant clear coats.
When used with an Orange Light Cutting Pad, swirl marks and other imperfections are removed with ease!
BLACKFIRE Compound is designed to remove imperfections from the paint without dulling the surface or creating compounding haze. After compounding, use BLACKFIRE Polish with a clean polishing pad to further enhance surface gloss.
Flawless paint starts with BLACKFIRE Compound!
Mike Phillips used BLACKFIRE Compound to quickly remove the swirls and scratches in this 1994 Z28 Camaro. Even with the amount of paint imperfections in the paint, you can see how well the BLACKFIRE Compound finished - it almost doesn't even need the BLACKFIRE Polish!
