So What Is is Paint Correction?
Paint correction in simple terms in the process of removing clear coat from the surface of your vehicle. To do this specialists use either a DA Polisher, Forced Rotation Polisher, or a Rotary Buffer with Compounds and Polishes to essentially sand off layers of the clear coat taking the scratches and imperfections with it. Depending on how deep the imperfections are depends on how high of a grit you need to start with. There are a good amount of variables to consider when correcting paint. Every car will have a different hardness of paint, and with every car a slightly modified approach, with different pad and polish combinations as well as force used and speed will have to be taken to get the best results and finish.
Of course paint correction can only take out so much from your clear coat, some cars will have deeper isolated scratches, door dings, and rock chips that may have gone past the very thin clear coat layer and into the paint or even as deep as the primer. The basic rule of thumb is if you can feel the imperfection or scratch with your fingernail, it is to deep to correction since it is past the clear coat layer.
When getting ready to correct a cars paint there is also the question of how much of the clear coat layer is left to correct? If you are not careful you can burn through the clearcoat and cause permanent damage to the vehicles finish. A layer of Clear Coat is usually about as thick as one stick note. Making sure you measure the paint and determine that there is enough clear coat to work with before starting is crucial.
