What Is Car Paint Correction?

AKA - 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 machine polishing of varying grades of cleanser, polish or compound. (can also be done by hand but in today's time and with today's finishing I would recommend machine polishing, preferably via an orbital polisher)

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 hard water marks, etching caused by bird droppings or bug and tar, swirl marks, scratches and fading or dull paint.

Done professionally, paint correction is entirely safe and will not cause any issues with your paint.

Why Consider Paint Correction?

A vehicle’s paint has to deal with a lot of environmental challenges:

  • Road grime and grit
  • Bird poo, bugs, and sap
  • Tar
  • Water spots
  • People brushing against the car with their clothing or bags
  • Bad detailing techniques and/or products
  • Poor machine or hand polishing techniques
  • Automatic car washes

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 most, 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.

Will swirls and paint issues reappear?

New marks may appear over time (we can't stop future scratches), but with proper care, you should be able to prolong them from reappearing.
