Buff and Polish (Paint Correction)

Paint Correction (Buff & Polish) Menu

Paint Correction is the process of removing imperfections in an automobile’s clear coat. This is achieved by using various techniques, tools and products to massage and/or re-level the clearcoat back to an almost, if not better-than-new state. Imperfections that may be present in a vehicle’s finish are sometimes referred to as “swirl marks” or “spider webbing”. This is caused by improper washing and drying techniques and can be prevented by taking cautious measures in the cleaning process. Other imperfections may be caused by bird droppings, tree sap, water-spots, or deep scratches that were instilled by the countless variables a vehicle is subject to on a daily basis. Other imperfections that can be present in paint are those that were put there by an inexperienced and common day-to-day detailer. These fine abrasive scratches are known as “holograms” or “buffer trails”. Buffer trails are caused when a detailer uses an aggressive pad and/or compound with improper technique which damages the finish. The proper way to remove scratches is through the process of paint correction.
