paint correction

everything is in the detail

Paint correction allows for the removal of swirls. scratches. Surface Defects. Water Marks.

Paint Correction is the refined and technical term for polishing a vehicle's painted parts with a machine. Other more commonly known terms are: buffing, buff and polish, cut and polish. While in essence these should all be the same, the reality if far from the truth.
Incorrectly polishing your paintwork can lead to further damage, buffing marks or swirl marks in the paintwork making your paint worse then before. Many other detailers use glazes or products with 'fillers' which merely disguise the defects in the paint. The worst part, they may even damage your car and burn or buff through the paintwork.
In order to properly remove or 'correct' the paintwork, countless hours or days must be spent polishing the paintwork in order to remove defects from the paint's surface. These 'defects' are in different depths in the paintwork. The majority of paintwork comprises of several layers; the base coat over the metal, and either 1 layer of paint or 2 layers comprising a layer of Clear over the base cost.
Paint Correction comprises of two main stages; compounding which is more aggressive but effective at removing scratches & defects and polishing which is designed to burnish the paint to a high gloss. Once your paintwork is properly corrected, the difference can often be like night and day. Swirl marks, water marks, fading, scratches can all be removed while leaving the paintwork, glossy, clear with depth.
