What is Paint Correction?
Paint correction is the art of restoring a painted surface to optimal gloss and clarity by removing surface defects and scratches with fine abrasive polishes and compounds. It is a honed skill that is far more than just a "buff". A true paint correction will remove surface defects and swirling permanently while also refining the paints surface to reveal stunning levels of gloss.
What is a Multi Stage Paint Correction?
Through the use of multiple abrasives at different levels of aggressiveness, a multi stage correction allows for the use of compounds in the beginning of the process in order to remove defects and scratches and "level" the painted surface on a microscopic scale. This step is then followed with finer and finer abrasive polishes to refine the surface and restore gloss and clarity.
