The paint is the most recognizable aspect of a car. It is the first impression and draws in our attention. Paint correction is repairing the paint back to its true clarity by removing visible defects such as scratches & swirl-marks without having to repaint or go to the bodyshop.
Using the proper abrasive polishing technology, dual action polishers, technique and knowledge, paint defects such as swirls, scratches and hard etching are levelled out by abrading the clear coat surrounding the defects to restore a deep, glossy, reflective finish. We recommend installing our CQuartz ceramic car coating after the paint correction to preserve the new finish for years to come and facilitate its maintenance.
Swirls and scratches are defects instilled into the top clear coat most commonly through automatic car washes, inferior hand car wash techniques, or drying techniques.
Automatic car washes use harsh chemicals, rotating mop like brushes made of synthetic nylon or plastic materials that rub against the paint in harsh manner. Numerous cars prior to yours were washed with the same brushes now embedded with rocks & other debris.
Those brushes are now rubbing dirt and grime against your paint. Improper car washing techniques can cause cross contamination of dirt picked up by the wash mitt and wiped across the surface.
Swirls are apparent under certain lighting such as LEDs and direct sunlight. They appear as spider web like marks and are an eye sore. They deflect the light so you can’t see the true nature of the paint. After the defects are removed and paint polished back to near perfection, using proper washing techniques such as the two bucket method, using high quality microfiber wash medium and proper paint protection will maintain your paint’s finish.
