In the last several years, automotive paint technology has evolved to radically change the way vehicles are produced and maintained. Advancements such as scratch resistant ceramic clear coat and water based paint technology has given vehicle owners the best looking paint possible with the capability of lasting years longer than ever imagined. To fully utilize these new advancements in automotive paint technology, Chemical Guys has spent over 3 years developing V34. The first optical grade hybrid compound designed to take paint correction to the next level.

V34 hybrid compound is the first water based OEM approved compound designed to remove heavy paint defects and imperfections with the clarity and precision that perfectionists demand. Utilizing optical grade micro abrasive technology, V34 is able to eliminate the worst paint defects on even the hardest ceramic clear coats. We designed V34 for the professional that needs to utilize paint correction techniques on neglected or severely damaged vehicles in less time with higher quality results. V34 is able to remove heavy scratches, swirls, and oxidation that conventional compounds just can’t eliminate. V34 optical grade hybrid compound makes removing heavy scratches and defects from ceramic clear coat faster and easier than ever imagined.

“Removing scratches and defects from Mercedes, Corvette or Nissan vehicles can be rather difficult. Over the past few years, these vehicles have started to become equipped with scratch-resistant and ceramic clear coat paint technology with helps the exterior stay looking great for years, but creates a monumental task when removing even the smallest scratch or defect. As a paint correction specialist, I am always looking for a compound that can eliminate heavy defects and swirls from very hard clear coats with less effort. Using V34 has allowed me to eliminate time and effort from the paint correction process on new ceramic and scratch-resistant clear coat paint. Heavy scratches, deep swirls, and tough oxidation don’t stand a chance against V34 hybrid compound. In just a few passes with a D/A or rotary polisher, V34 leaves the surface perfectly level and ready for the next step of finish polishing. In the past, Corvette and Mercedes clear coat has given me the most challenge when removing defects due to the clear coat being very hard. With V34, I am able to take even the hardest clear coat and bring the highest quality result to any vehicle. V34 Hybrid Compound is truly a product designed to bring professional results to scratch-resistant and ceramic clear coat.
