Paint correction starts with high-pressure spray, foam car soap wash, and Clay Bar Treatment. This removes the fine dirt, grime, and pollutants from the vehicle’s paint. Next, a cutting compound is applied to the exterior of the vehicle. ⠀
Cutting compounds are gritty and they even the clear coat, helping to remove damaged paint, scuff marks, or surface scratches in the clear coat. Oxidation, for example, typically occurs in the outermost layers of the clear coat. Cutting the paint removes these layers that have been damaged. ⠀
Once the damage has been removed, the new surface is buffed, and a coat of sealant is applied. This ensures the paint is protected, but also creates a wet, sleek-looking shine. ⠀
■ What Are the Benefits of Paint Correction?⠀
1️⃣ It will add years to the paint. Scratches and oxidation leave the clear coat exposed. Over time, water, chemicals, dirt, and pollutants collect in these cuts and scrapes, further eating away at the paint. Ultimately, this can cause corrosion and rust, a costly problem to reverse. Paint correction removes these small scratches and protects them. ⠀
2️⃣ A major benefit of any polish or paint correction service is the shine. Paint correction restores the clear coat. When buffed, the shiny, wet appearance will return to the paint. Your car will look years younger and the paint will look newer, brighter, and more vibrant.
