PAINT ENHANCEMENT AND CORRECTION
THE PAINT CORRECTION PROCESS
The paint correction process involves the removal of various imperfections, such as fine scratches, etching, acid rain etching, swirl marks, water spots, bird droppings, buffer trails and some deep scratches. We utilise professional tools and products to ensure high-quality results. The process typically includes the following steps:
ASSESSMENT OF IMPERFECTIONS & DAMAGE
We examine the exterior surfaces of the vehicle and measures paint depth to ensure sufficient clearcoat and paint are available for safe restoration.
WASHING & DECONTAMINATION
This crucial step uses an automotive clay bar to eliminate stubborn contaminants and industrial build-up. This process smoothens the surface, allowing the polishing machine to move easily whilst preventing contaminants from damaging the surface.
WET SANDING & COMPOUNDING
Depending on the size of the vehicle and the extent of the damage, this step may not always be necessary. Wet sanding targets specific areas with heavy imperfections such as deep paint scratches, while compounding offers a gentler approach. The remaining clear coat and the severity of the imperfections are considered before deciding if compounding is needed.
This stage may require several steps, depending on factors such as clear coat type, damage severity and vehicle size. A combination of machine pad and polish is used, removing marring, holograms, light swirling and abrasions from the compounding stage. Polishing also adds a protective layer to the car's paint for months.
This final step in the paint correction process safeguards your vehicle from further imperfections and damages.
Prime car care takes pride in offering expert paint restoration services to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of your vehicle. This intricate, multi-step process demands skill, experience and specialised equipment, tools and products.
This specialised service is not typically available at local car washes. In fact, these car washes often contribute to swirls and scratches on your vehicle's surface. To determine if your vehicle requires paint restoration, inspect it in direct sunlight for spider-web-like marks and swirls, which indicate the need for our paint correction services.
