How paint correction works
<hr class="dvuk-hr-blue">
Paint correction is a process that removes swirl marks, light scratches, holograms, marring, etching and other various defects from the paintwork. The process is relatively simple but labour intense and highly skilled. Paint thickness is measured in microns and by polishing away “cutting” even just 1 or 2 microns the paint surface can be re-levelled producing in most cases a better than new finish. With the use of a polishing machine, foam pads and cutting compounds the paint is intensely polished removing these imperfections panel by panel and once the paint is re-levelled, light is left to reflect evenly across the surface producing a flawless shine without the common imperfections usually caused by poor maintenance.
    
After the paint is corrected it is sealed, in most cases with a hard wax, to produce further depth and add full protection from traffic film, acid rain, bird droppings, UV rays and other various contaminants. Adding a wax also helps the vehicle look cleaner for longer between washes as the protective
coating makes dirt and traffic film hard to stick to the paint surface and being able to wash the vehicle less frequent will help reduce the risk of
introducing swirl marks and produce a more economic result. Paint correction is far less expensive than what paintwork from a body shop would be and would not decrease the value of the vehicle due to unoriginal paintwork.

As all paint types and colours vary, we can assess the vehicle and give an in depth consultation upon request. This application will require an
assessment before any work is carried out. All assessments & quotations are free of charge. If you have any questions, queries or simply need some advice please do not hesitate to contact us using the details provided on our contact page.

*Note in order to remove scratches made to a deeper level
of paint work, you should take your vehicle to a  body shop
in order to have the lower level paint work repaired.
We are able to provide Paint Correction to Clear Coat level damage only. If the scratch is deeper, we will advise that you take your vehicle to a body repair shop to have the lower levels repaired.
