Paint Correction: Swirl, Scratch & Stain Removal
Paint corrective processes are body-shop techniques utilized to remove paint imperfections such as bird stains, etch marks, hard water deposits and lighter scratches permanently.
Whether deliberate or accidental, scratches and abrasions in your clear coat can quickly ruin your day. Damage to the exterior finish detracts from the overall appearance and value of a car. Many people want their cars to remain pristine, so an imperfection can be very upsetting.
There are three layers of paint on a factory-built car.
Top layer is the clear coat, a glossy layer that protects the paint beneath it.
Next is the base coat, which gives the car its color.
The bottom coat, painted directly onto the metal body of the car, is known as the primer.
Many surface stains, scratches and abrasions that only lightly affect the clear coat can often be removed without having to repaint the complete panel. Removing the damage is more of an aggressive process than just putting on wax. Severe imperfections that penetrate all the way to the primer are harder, but not impossible, to repair
Sometimes, shallow scratches and abrasions only penetrate the clear coat. This type of damage can be safely removed utilizing our paint free restoration techniques.
Scratches and abrasions that cut into the base coat will require a bit more effort.
Scratches and abrasions that cut so deep into the primer might require air brushing or complete panel repainting if it cannot be touched up effectively due to the damage.
COMPOUNDING - the use of wax-like textured cream which will "exfoliate" the clear-coat to remove the imperfection caused by bird droppings, hard water deposits, light scratches or swirls, paint transfers and much more. Compounding is going further than waxing, since this process requires a more aggressive cleaner to recondition paint.
COLOR-SANDING / WET-SANDING - the use of a fine sandpaper to smooth out the clear-coat to remove deeper imperfections. Following will be a compound process, to safely restore your car's luster and mirror shine back to new-like condition.
