What is the meaning of the term “Paint Correction”?

Paint correction involves removing defects from a vehicle’s finish and restoring it to its original condition. Swirl marks, marring caused by automated car washes, fine scratches, water spots, and holograms caused by bird droppings that were not thoroughly cleaned are just a few of the flaws. Various polishes and graded pads are utilized with machine polishers in a full paint correction. A car that has been correctly corrected in direct sunshine will reflect the sun’s rays, showing no swirl marks or defects visible.

What is the process of Paint Correction?

Based on the level of damage to the coating, the entire paint correction process can be broken down into several parts.

  • Step 1: The single-step cutting method is done with a heavy cutting pad, and a cutting compound. A first-stage paint repair removes scratches, marring and swirl marks.
  • Step 2: You’ll use a less abrasive pad and polish combination for this step. In most cases, it starts with a coarser compound and progresses to a more soft compound to remove any scratches left by the first stage.
  • Step 3: After all the hard work repairing the paint from stages 1 and 2 now in stage 3 its time to make it all shine. Using a finishing pad and polish this is were all the hard preparation work will show with a flawless finish

How does Paint Correction work?

A professional paint restoration treatment will eliminate visible flaws and restore your vehicle’s gloss. Not only can a Paint Correction remove abrasions and microscopic swirl marks, but it will also level your car’s clear coat, giving it that perfect mirror sheen.

Paint correction can also help your vehicle’s paint last longer. The restoration process and a sealer or ceramic coating will help your factory paint last longer and protect it from the weather. Following a professional automotive paint correction, your paint job will last longer if you follow appropriate maintenance methods.

Is it necessary to correct the paint before applying the Ceramic Coating?

It all relies on how well the car’s paint is maintained. Regardless of the composition or application method, the function of a Ceramic Coating is to adhere to the surface and produce an invisible protective layer. The coating becomes transparent and acts like glass when it hardens. As a result, the paint underneath is magnified and shinier. Consequently, a glossy finish looks more polished, while a matte finish appears to have more depth. Scratches that are minor or difficult to see will be amplified or intensified. Instead of being hidden, any swirl marks will be apparent. 

Can a Paint Correction remove fine scratches?

YES. Scratches, water spots, and swirls are removed from the paintwork, leaving it with a mirror-like gloss. It involves lightly polishing away the top layer of clear coat on a vehicle’s paintwork to achieve a faultless appearance.
