Paint Correction, Why Important?

What Is Car Paint Correction?

Also known as swirl mark removal or machine polishing, paintwork correction is the reduction or removal of marks in the top layer of paint to produce a more refined finish.

Paint correction can involve either the hand or machine application of varying grades of cleanser, polish or compound.

The majority of work is usually done with rotary machine polishers to get the best level of correction.

Good paint correction requires a high degree of skill and concentration, but done properly, it really can transform the look of a car by dealing with (amongst other things); hard water marks, etching caused by bird poop, swirl marks, scratches and fading.

Paint correction is important if you want the best result when applying the Liquid Armour 9H Ceramic Coating.

  • A car's paint has to deal with a lot of environmental challenges:
  • Road grime and grit
  • Bird muck, fly squash and tree sap
  • Tar
  • Water spots
  • People brushing against the car with their clothing or bags
  • Poor valeting techniques and/or products
  • Poor machine or hand polishing techniques
  • Auto car washes

Sadly all of these things can leave the finish of a car looking less than perfect and at worst, dull, faded and covered in light scratches, swirls and other marring. Not only does this detract from your car's appearance but it ultimately reduces its value as well.

For the vast majority of cars, paint correction really can make a substantial difference and will completely remove or significantly reduce most marks. Not only this, but the resulting finish will have an amazing gloss, depth of reflection and slickness. When Protected with Liquid Armour 9H Ceramic coating, it will maintain that new appearance for years to come.
