Paint Correction

WHAT IS PAINT CORRECTION?

Paint correction is the process of removing or reducing scratches using machine polishers in various forms combined with cutting compounds, polishes or in worst-case-scenario, wetsanding papers. Our methodical system is designed to achieve the best results possible when used by a trained professional. Paint correction is the perfect solution to enhance what you already have.


WHAT CAUSES DEFECTS?

Defects such as swirl marks are due to a combination of improper washing techniques.

Automated car wash brushes push dirt into the paint, marring the clear coat paint which gradually deepen over time, gradually dulling the shine.

Hand washing can also be very dangerous if proper technique is not performed, drying a vehicle without a lubricant can mar your paint which eventually dull the shine.

Tar, sap bugs and poo wreak havoc on unprotected surfaces. Tar or sap can stick to the paint, and can chip off paint when it is removed. Bugs break down and form a chemical reaction that can possibly penetrate the clear coat or leave etching trails. Nature takes it course, and some of us aren’t lucky. Poo is terrible and probably the worse of all environmental contaminates, as it penates the clear and leaves etching if left unattended.

Hard water can also damage your paint. Mineral deposits left behind from evaporated water can etch through your paint which can lead to failure.

Not all scratches can be removed, deep scratching that penetrates the clear coat or base coat paint can only be repaired by repainting.

HOW IS IT PERFORMED?

  1. Single Stage: Polish/AIO
    • Always performed to refine clear coat paint when preparing a vehicle before a nanocoating application
    Can be performed as a solution to polish and protect a vehicle in one step.
    Recommended before a nanocoating installed.

  2. Two Stages: Compound and Polish
    Two stage machine polish using a combination of medium and ultra fine polishes.
    Generally, lightly swirled paintwork mixed with one or two deeper scratches would need this treatment.

  3. Three Stages: Full Correction
    A three stage machine polish using a combination of compound, medium and ultra fine polishes.
    We recommend for high value vehicles or vehicles with unloved paintwork.
    The amount of extra machine polishing required to remove deep scratches will surprise many, its possible the detailer may judge some scratches as too deep to be safely removed.

  4. Four Stages: Wet Sanding
    Paintwork is carefully wet sanded to produce a completely flat finish followed by a 5 stage polish.
