What is “Paint Correction?”

FullSizeRender.jpg

Paint correction is often times mistaken by many for repainting a vehicle. Many think that the term paint correction refers to fixing scrapes, stone chips, dents, dings, etc. 

While all those horrible mishaps can be fixed with other methods, they are not fixed by a machine polisher or “paint correction”.

Paint correction is the process of reducing, minimizing and/or eliminating imperfections in a vehicle’s clear coat. 

A vehicle has a few layers to the pretty shiny stuff you see: typically there’s a primer layer, a base coat or “color” layer, and the clear coat or top coat which makes the surface appear ultra shiny/glossy. Imperfections in clear coat can be caused by a plethora of things, such as a cat walking across the hood, someone keying a vehicle, wiping it down improperly, improper washing/care methods, bird poo droppings, acid rain, California dusters, tree sap , the list goes on! 

 

So how do you get rid of the scratches?

Paint correction can involve a number of measures (literally) including measuring paint depth to ensure there is enough clear coat available to correct (otherwise you’ll burn through to the base coat or beyond!), as well as choosing the right machine, pads, compounds and polishes to correct the issue.  

Ask the abused Maserati above, he’ll show you what we did. See the scratches/swirls/spider webs/unholiness in the paint? Well here is after

This stunning 2016 Mercedes Benz G65 received a plethora of services. Starting with our Ceramic Pro interior coating, the leather, carpets, and upholstery were protected for resistance against staining as well as providing UV protection. We proceeded to paint correct the paint with our Stage 2 paint correction to remove the slight scratches and blemishes in the clear coat. Next, the Ceramic Pro Silver Package was applied to the exterior painted and chrome surfaces of the wagon. Wheel faces were protected for ease of cleaning and to protect against corrosion. To top off the protection, we applied Ceramic Pro Rain to all of the glass.
