If your car’s paint is in need of a little lovin’ or maybe you’re looking to add an extra layer of protection to your vehicle – then we recommend considering paint correction. Paint correction is a detailed process that can remove minor scratches, swirl marks, blemishes and oxidation. When performed properly it can make your vehicle look brand new and ready to roll off the showroom floor.
What is paint correction?
The short answer is it is the process of removing paint defects from a vehicle’s painted surface using a machine polisher and various types of pads. This process requires a high level of skill and experience to achieve the desired results with minimal effort.
Over time, a vehicle’s paint is bound to get messed up due to environmental factors and the way we drive them. As such, most vehicles require a paint correction to restore its luster. The most common reasons for a vehicle to need a paint correction are holograms, deep scratches, and swirl marks. These blemishes are usually caused by improper use of a buffer or by an inexperienced detailer.
If left unattended, these blemishes will continue to grow and cause the clear coat to degrade. As the clear coat degrades it will cause the paint to dull and haze. This makes it more difficult to see your surroundings, especially in low light situations. Eventually, the clear coat will peel away completely, exposing the base-coat and possibly even the metal underneath.
To prevent these types of issues, a vehicle should be regularly polished and protected with a ceramic coating to keep its paint looking like a mirror. Paint protection film also acts as an invisible shield to protect the paint from road debris, rock chips and bird droppings.
Choosing the right wall paint is an important step in any home renovation. There are a variety of choices, from eggshell to flat finishes. You want to pick something that looks good and is easy to clean. A matte finish is better than a flat or satin finish, but it will be more difficult to wipe dust off.
In addition to a smooth finish, you should choose wall paint that is stain-resistant and scuff-resistant. This is especially true if you plan to have children or pets in the house. You can also opt for a low-VOC product for added safety.
If you’re a DIY enthusiast, you might want to consider picking up a polishing machine and doing your own paint correction at home. However, it is best to have a professional perform the service to ensure you’re getting the most out of the process.
It’s also important to note that a thorough decontamination of the surface is required before performing paint correction. This will give any future products you apply a more effective bond to the vehicle’s paint. This is critical for protecting your investment and ensuring long-lasting results. This is why we highly recommend doing a paint correction before applying a ceramic coating or wax.
