Paint Correction

What is Paint Correction?

Paint Correction is the process of removing paint defect. These are in the form of scratches, swirls, scuffs, water/acid ethching, oxidisation and chalky paint using a machine polisher. Also known as “buffing” car paint correction essentially smooths out the clearcoat on the paint to create an even, reflective, smooth layer that is also a necessary step before ceramic coating. Because this process is all about smoothing out clearcoat with surrounding clearcoat, any defect that is too “deep” through the clearcoat cannot be fixed with machine polishing as there is no more clearcoat to level out and must be re-painted. Refer to the below image to see examples of what can and cannot be fixed with machine polishing.


There is ALOT of experience and skill involved with paint correction/car polishing as the detailer must make a decision on the Suitable:
-Polishing Compound (Of Which there are Thousands)
-Pad (Of Which there are Thousands)
-Machine Type (DA, Rotary, Forced Rotation, 1 inch Backing Plate, 3 inch, 5 inch or 6 inch…)
-Machine Rotation Speed as Well as Pressure, Time Polishing, Arm Speed
-The Individual Clearcoat Type and Hardness of the Vehicle being Polished as well as Evidence of Prior Polishing AND Clearcoat thickness
-The List Goes on… This is why there is such a large Variance in Price between Detailers as The Lengths you can go on a Car Detail can be an hour to multiple Weeks!
