Paint Correction Townsville

Our Townsville Paint Correction Services

Our Paint correction  Townsville services relate to the method of eliminating the imperfections in a car’s paint finish. Therefore, returning it to a better than the original finish. These defects include but are not limited to swirl marks, etched bird droppings, fine scratches, water spots, holograming caused by bad car washing methods.

The only real way to eliminate scratches in your vehicle’s paintwork is with the means of paint correction, one of our specialties at Car Detailing Townsville.

Paint correction requires the use of machine buffing polishers and an assortment of various polishes and graded buff pads. When observed in direct sunlight, a fully corrected vehicle will reveal only true reflections and no swirl marks, scratches, or blemishes will be obvious to the trained eye.
Frequently at times, multiple stages of machine polishing are needed to reach a full paint correction. The first comprising the most abrasive and the last being a very light finishing wax polish. The more extensive scratches are eradicated in the first stage of polish. Then the more superficial surface abrasions caused by this harsh polish are eliminated by the finer polish that follow.

Lastly, it is necessary to differentiate between paintwork that has been accurately corrected and paintwork that has been treated with products.  These car car products are intended to fill surface defects such as an all-in-one finish. This should not be attributed as paint correction even if no marks or swirls are seen. The reason is they have not been appropriately removed and are still present due to the polishes fillers, which over time, will wear away and expose them once more. When paintwork is accurately corrected, a small amount of clear coat is taken off, along with the otherwise tough scratches and swirls in the clear coat. This leaves brilliant clarity and complete mirror-like reflections.
