What Is Paint Correction And Is It Necessary?
Paint correction is a process that is used in the preparation stage of paint protection to remove imperfections in the paint surface such as swirls, scratches, and oxidation. The goal of paint correction is to create a smooth and even paint surface, which is essential for the paint protection product or service to adhere properly and provide maximum protection.
The process of paint correction can vary depending on the severity of the imperfections and the type of paint protection that is being applied. It typically involves using specialized polishing compounds and tools, such as a dual action polisher or rotary polisher, to buff out the imperfections. The polishing compounds are applied to the paint surface and worked in with the polisher, and then the surface is cleaned and inspected for any remaining imperfections.
For ceramic coatings, paint correction is mandatory as the ceramic coating will only bond with a smooth and even paint surface, any imperfections will be amplified and visible under the coating. The paint correction process for ceramic coating is usually more aggressive as the surface must be polished to a higher level of perfection, hence the term multi-stage paint correction.
In summary, paint correction is a process used to remove imperfections in the paint surface before applying paint protection. It creates a smooth and even paint surface, which is essential for the paint protection product or service to adhere properly and provide maximum protection. It’s especially important when applying ceramic coatings, as the coating will only bond with a perfect paint surface.
