Paint Correction | O.C.Detailing

The process involved in paint correction on a clear coat is the removal of contaminants on the surface of the paint. Removing these contaminants enhances your vehicle’s gloss and smoothness. It also makes polishing easier if you decide to pair paint correction with an application of wax or sealant at a later date. At OCDetailing we offer several levels of paint correction: light, medium, and heavy-duty. Each level has its own set of tools and materials needed to achieve specific results which can be achieved in 2 hours depending on conditions and type of car being corrected. There are many benefits to having your car professionally prepped at our shop before applying any products such as wax or sealant:

Environmentally friendly processes that get rid of 80% plus chemical compounds of the paint instead of just moving it around on your surface.

Details that are invisible to the eye through naked eye inspection are revealed using special lenses that allow us to see below the clear coat’s reflection.

Using waxes, sealants, and glazes at their maximum bond levels results in more durability, glossiness, and longevity of your protective products.

Consistent appearance on all four sides – doors, hood, trunk lid. Front fenders may have different scratches due to garage door bumpers; they will be corrected as best as possible with consistency in mind since the color is also critical for achieving that showroom shine.

The paint correction process is divided into 3 sections: washing (wax removal), decontamination (clay bar, chemical paint decontamination), and polishing (machine polishing via rotary/dual-action). This is not necessarily in that order. The washing phase could be skipped if the paint is in acceptable condition after the decontamination phase.

The process of both decontamination and machine polishing involves using products that lift out surface contaminants such as rail dust, tree sap, embedded road grime, etc… These contaminates are now on either a clay bar or wool pad; then they are removed by passing over an applicator with appropriate lubrication (i.e. water) to minimize scratching the underlying clear coat finish.

We also offer several complementary services with paint correction to leave your car feeling super clean and refreshed after the work is completed. After paint correction, black cars especially need to be clay barred before sealant or wax can be properly applied because of staining from rail dust.

FACTS about paint correction

Paint correction, also known as “buffing” or “polishing,” can help remove various visual defects such as scratching, swirling, scuffs, holograms and marring. There are 4 stages of paint correction. Stage 1 paint correction can generally fix up to 50% of paint imperfections whereas stage 2 paint correction will fix 85%+ correctable defects. Stage 3 is considered a multi step correction where our technicians will chase out any and all correctable defects for a 95%+ defect free finish. Stage 3 is generally only recommended for show cars or clients who demand the absolute best. Wet sanding, which is involved in stage 4, is a process we only advise under certain circumstances to remove clear coat defects such as orange peel.

What it is

Have you ever noticed what appears to be spider webs on the paint of your automobile when it’s exposed to the sun or a street lamp? Paint Correction can correct a variety of flaws on your vehicle’s surface that are reflected back by light. This is accomplished by smoothing down the painted surfaces with a variety of techniques, equipment, and chemicals. This is a time-consuming process that demands patience, experience, and meticulous attention to detail. The end result improves the shine effect and gives your car’s paint a new appearance.

Why is it important

Paint correction is a crucial step in the process of protecting the paint on your vehicle. Before applying paint protection film or a ceramic coating, we recommend that you go through this process.

Because PPF and/or Ceramic coatings cover up your clear coat, we recommend using this protection only when your clear coat is at its best for the greatest end effect. In some circumstances, Ceramic coatings can bring out minor flaws in the paint, which we wish to prevent.

How it works

This time-consuming procedure starts with a decon, or “decontamination,” which is not the same as a simple wash. It begins with a foam bath, which aids in the removal of dirt and grime from the car. Then there’s Iron Remover, which bleeds out all of the paint’s fallout and metal particles. The clay bar comes next. A qualified member of our staff goes over every inch of your vehicle with a clay bar to remove any impurities that won’t come off with routine cleaning. The actual paint repair processes then commence.

The first step in the paint correction process is to correct the problem. Our professional-grade tools are used in conjunction with a microfiber cutting pad and a cutting compound to remove 85 percent or more of the correctable faults. This is accomplished by resurfacing the clear coat’s top layer. Polishing is the second step of a two-stage paint correction, and it removes haze and improves paint clarity to bring out the shine and gloss. Consider your clear coat to be your kitchen window, and your paint to be the lovely outdoors: if the window is dusty and opaque, your view of the outside is harmed. Your paintwork will look clean, bright, and POP with an enhanced shine effect after refinishing the clear coat and boosting clarity.
