Before any paint correction is undertaken, a thorough wash and decontamination of the
vehicle is performed. Paintwork is properly washed and cleaned to remove any loose
dirt and debris, then after the wash process is clayed with a specialist automotive
clay bar, which safely removes any bonded surface contaminants such as tar spots and
It is important these contaminants are removed before the paint correction process
because if they were to become dislodged and caught up in the pad of a polishing
machine, they could easily inflict damage onto the surface very quickly. It also
helps to leave the surface very smooth, which in turn, allows the polishing machine
to move freely over the surface, reducing the possibility of hopping or sticking
occurring. Lastly, claying the paintwork helps you to properly observe the progress
of the correction process because you can see the true condition of the surface as
you are working.
What Are the Benefits of Paint Correction?
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 rusting,
a costly problem to reverse. Paint correction removes these small scratches and
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.
