Is paint correction the same as detailing?

Paint correction is a much more complicated process than repainting. The retailer meticulously polishes any imperfections with various polishing machines, abrasives and polishing pads. The work to be done by the retailer requires specialized training to be able to correct the paint without causing further damage. I have seen it numerous times in “paint correction retailers”, where they burn the paint, over thin, clear coats and sand too much, leaving the customer's car in brighter, brighter condition, but in a premature state of clearcoat failure.

Most of the time, these same retailers, once they hologram the paint, will proceed to use a product known as enamel. The correct method of washing is to imagine the vehicle in a wind tunnel; you want to wash a vehicle from top to bottom, using straight and linear movements in the direction in which the air would flow over the vehicle. Some of the pros may have a problem with you sharing this, but a paint correction doesn't really cost them much per car. Correcting the paint on a car that is only going to be neglected, left dirty and scratched again in the future is a waste of time and money.

Paint correction is nothing different than a properly detailed finish according to homeowners' requirements and, IMHO, is nothing more than a new term for what has been done for years, offering perfect paint to the homeowner. To tell the truth, with an unlimited budget, every car would have a complete correction and coating application. If you don't pay for all this work to be done, your paint won't look as good as the one your car left the factory. The Car Polishing Co, offers paint protection %26 detailing services to the south-east, covering Kent Ashford, Canterbury, Maidstone, Gravesend, Thanet, Ramsgate.

Paint correction refers to the process of removing imperfections in the finish of a vehicle and restoring it to a better finish than the new one. This should not be called paint correction, even if there are no apparent scratches or imperfections, since they have not been genuinely removed and are still present under the fillers of the products, which over time, will remove and reveal them once again. Most retailers who offer paint correction services also offer what many refer to as “paint improvement.” Unlike using a polish or wax to temporarily cover scratches, a paint correction will physically remove them. Using safe washing methods and avoiding all the strange ways in which you can scratch paint will go a long way.
