PAINT CORRECTION

Paint correction is all about the detail

Paint correction is a term that's commonly used by professional car detailers to describe the process of restoring and reviving the paintwork of a vehicle.


This is mostly achieved through the elimination of surface imperfections or swirls on the surface which then reflect light off in various directions. These imperfections include things like swirl marks, fine scratches, bird dropping or acid rain etching, holograms, polishing marks and random hedge line scratches.

These imperfections can all be fixed through the process of machine polishing, which removes the flaws, adds clarity and gloss to leave a slick smooth surface.

It doesn't matter if your car is brand new or second-hand, even cars straight from the showroom have imperfections and swirls in the paint. Most swirl marring commonly comes from improper washing techniques, but this can be stopped by using a Safe Wash process.

Different levels of paint correction can be used on a car, depending on the condition of the paint. Single-stage machine polishing will remove fine swirls and is usually carried out on newer cars with minor defects. Whilst a two-stage machine polish is the most commonly used level of paint correction for more serious defects or longer-term damage.
