Unlike applying a wax to a vehicle’s paintwork, that will ‘mask’ swirling and light scratches, and eventually degrade, leaving the marks on show again, Paintwork correction is a permanent solution, and providing the car is carefully washed and dried, the was- related marks and swirls should not reappear.
This process begins with a thorough examination of the paintwork, using various light sources to determine how badly the paint surface is damaged.
These are the most common types of damage to paintwork.
A machine polisher is used to re-level the lacquer, step-by-step correcting the surface layer by a thousandth of a millimetre at a time, removing scratches & swirl marks, machine marring & holograms, so the paintwork reflects the light perfectly.
This process can also correct poor vehicle body shop work, such as paint overspray and D/A sanding marks.
This process can be repeated up to six times, using finer grades of compound and machine pad.
At this point the vehicle’s paintwork is wiped down 2-3 times with IPA to remove any polish residue and fillers present, to give a true finish.
The vehicle is then thoroughly inspected using various light sources that replicate sunlight to check the paintwork meets our high standards.
