Paint Correction is the art of refinishing and enhancing the surface clear coat lacquer to an outstanding level of perfection that we call “Better than New”.
Today’s modern paints offer a dazzling array of colours in four different paint finishes: Solid, Metallic, Pearlescent and Matt.
Until more recent years, Car paints were traditionally manufactured using hard-wearing solvents which provided better adhesion to metal substrates. However, due to health and environmental concerns around the use of solvents, the focus has now universally shifted towards waterborne paints since they’re primarily comprised of water and only contain around 10% solvent.
Thankfully, new innovations in modern technology mean that manufacturers can now produce high-performance water-based car paints in a range of colours that are simply stunning and have revolutionised and beautified vehicle appearance.
Your Vehicles paint comprises of 3 separate layers:
The clear coat layer provides the functional surface and forms a durable tough protective shell over the base colour coat, which helps to protect against wear & tear, stone chips, scratches and poor weather conditions.
Unfortunately over time, often as a result of poor quality chemicals and washing techniques, the clear-coat becomes worn and damaged by thousands of micro-line, ultra-fine scratches which diminish the original clarity and high-gloss appearance of the paint finish. This is particularly noticeable in bright sunlight or under fluorescents which highlight the swirls, holograms and scratches in the clear coat leaving the paint looking dull, damaged, tired and aged, this has become a major source of frustration for those who take pride in their vehicle.
In the past, scratches and oxidisation etc could be removed by hand, using products such as T-Cut to remove layers of paint. However, today’s modern paints cannot be corrected this way due to the hardness of the clear coat, so what is the remedy?
It may surprise you to know that even brand new vehicles come with clear coat damage and defects resulting from mistreatment somewhere along the supply chain, in our experience 90% of the new vehicles that come to us directly from dealers for Ceramic protection, require minor-level paint correction before protection can be properly applied.
