Paint Correction
Paint Correction

Paint correction is the process of restoring and rejuvenating the paintwork of a vehicle, mostly through the elimination of surface imperfections, that dull, oxidize, or haze the surface by reflecting light off in various directions, therefore detracting from a true and proper, clean, sharp, reflection. These imperfections include things like swirl marks & fine scratches, bird dropping etching & acid rain etching, hologramming & buffer trails, and random isolated deep scratches (or RIDS).

What is Stage 1?

Stage 1 Paint Correction is just that, polishing the paint work in one stage or one step with only one type of polish and pad combination. This is suited to cars paint that have very light scratches and swirl marks. The Stage 1 involves refining the paint work with a finishing polish and a finishing pad only and it is then followed by a wax or paint sealant to protect the paint work. (around 1.5 Hours)

What is Stage 2?

Stage 2 Paint Correction is suited to cars paint that have medium scratches and swirl marks. It involves using 2 different polish and pad combinations; the first step is generally a cutting (abrasive) polish, to remove imperfections such as medium scratches and swirl marks and other moderate paint defects. This is followed by a finishing polish and finishing pad to refine the paint work even further by removing any marring or holograms left by the previous step. It is then followed by a wax or paint sealant to protect the paint work. (around 2.5 Hours)

What is Stage 3?

Stage 3 Paint Correction is suited to cars paint that have heavy scratches and swirl marks, and other paint defects. It involves using 3 different polish and pad combinations, and this can also include spot wet sanding for heavier scratches. The first step is a heavy cutting compound with a heavy cutting pad to remove those deeper scratches and swirl marks. The second step is a cutting polish and polishing pad to remove further swirls marks followed by the finishing polish and finishing pad to further refine the paint work to a swirl, mar and hologram free finish. It is then followed by a wax or paint sealant to protect the paint work. (around 5 - 7 Hours)
