Why Exactly is Paint Protection?
Paint correction is a term used in the automotive industry to describe the process of removing imperfections in a vehicle’s paintwork, such as swirl marks, scratches, and other defects. The process involves using a combination of abrasive compounds, polishes, and other tools to remove a microscopic layer of paint from the surface of the car, thereby removing the imperfections.
Paint correction can be a time-consuming process that requires a high level of skill and experience to achieve the best results. However, when done correctly, it can significantly improve the appearance of a vehicle’s paintwork and restore it to its original factory finish.
It is important to note that paint correction should only be performed by trained professionals using the correct equipment and techniques to avoid damaging the paintwork.
Paint Correcton Process & How It Works
The process of paint correction typically involves the following steps:
Inspection: The first step in paint correction is to inspect the vehicle’s paintwork to identify any imperfections such as swirl marks, scratches, or other defects.
Washing: Before starting the correction process, the vehicle is thoroughly washed to remove any dirt or debris from the surface of the paintwork. This helps to prevent any further damage during the correction process.
Preparation: The paint correction specialist will then prepare the surface of the car for correction by masking off any areas that should not be worked on, such as trim or rubber seals, and by using a clay bar to remove any embedded contaminants.
Correction: Once the surface of the car is prepared, the specialist will use a series of abrasive compounds and polishes to remove a microscopic layer of paint from the surface of the vehicle, gradually working their way from more aggressive to less aggressive compounds until the desired level of correction is achieved.
Finishing: Once the correction process is complete, the surface of the vehicle is thoroughly cleaned to remove any remaining polish residue, and a protective wax or sealant is applied to protect the newly corrected paintwork.
Inspection: Finally, the vehicle is inspected once again to ensure that the desired level of correction has been achieved and that the paintwork is restored to its original factory finish.
