PAINT CORRECTION

Purity Auto Hygienics Paint Correction

PAINT CORRECTION, ALSO KNOWN AS COMPOUNDING, POLISHING, “CUT AND BUFF”, SWIRL/SCRATCH REMOVAL, ETC) IS A PROCESS CONSISTING OF REFINISHING FLAWED, DAMAGED, AND/OR OXIDIZED PAINT. UTILIZING INTELLIGENT COMBINATIONS OF MACHINES, PADS, AND BUFFING LIQUIDS OF DIFFERENT ABRASION LEVELS WE ARE ABLE TO SAFELY REFINISH PAINT AND OTHER EXTERIOR SURFACES TO A SHOW CAR SHINE.

PROCESS

WE MUST RESPECT THE PROCESS.  

A VEHICLE INSPECTION PERFORMED AT TIME OF SERVICE, AND A TEST SPOT, ARE NECESSARY TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATE COURSE OF ACTION. THIS ALLOWS US TO DETERMINE THE SPECIFIC COMBINATION OF VARIABLES WE WILL ADJUST TO GET TO PEAK PERFORMANCE AND FINISH-ABILITY. ADJUSTING VARIABLES LIKE PADS (COURSE TO FINE), PAD MATERIAL CHOICES (WOOL, MICROFIBER, FOAM), BUFFING LIQUIDS (COURSE TO FINE), MACHINE SPEED, ARM SPEED, WETTING AGENTS, AND PROPER CLEAN OUT METHODS, WE ARE ABLE TO BREATHE LIFE BACK INTO YOUR PAINT. WORKING CLEAN IS PARAMOUNT. WHEN CORRECTING, WE BLOW OUT PADS ON EVERY SECTION PASS. THIS ENSURES THE CLEANEST AND MOST UNIFORM FINISH POSSIBLE.

MANUFACTURERS USE DIFFERENT PAINT AND PAINT SYSTEMS. FOR THAT REASON, WE ALWAYS PERFORM A TEST SPOT STARTING WITH THE LEAST AGGRESSIVE METHOD POSSIBLE. WE FINE TUNE THE APPROACH, BEFORE DIALING IN THE OPTIMAL COMBINATION TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED RESULTS. THIS IS 100% NECESSARY TO PROFESSIONALLY DETERMINE THE LEVEL OF CORRECTION NECESSARY ON THE INDIVIDUAL VEHICLE. BY TESTING THIS WAY, WE CAN DETERMINE THE PROPER LEVEL OF CORRECTION REQUIRED, WITHOUT REMOVING ANY MORE PAINT THAN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED RESULTS.

REMEMBER, VEHICLE PRESERVATION IS THE GOAL. REMOVING MORE PAINT THAN NECESSARY IS NOT DOING YOU ANY FAVORS DOWN THE ROAD. THIS PROCESS ALSO ALLOWS US TO EFFECTIVELY MEASURE AND MONITOR THE PAINT DEPTH. AS WELL AS MONITOR THE PRECISE AMOUNT OF MATERIAL BEING REMOVED IN THE PROCESS. ENSURING THE INTEGRITY OF THE PAINT SYSTEM AS A WHOLE.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL, IS TO REMOVE AS LITTLE PAINT AS POSSIBLE, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, ACHIEVE THE DESIRED REULTS.

REMEMBER WHAT YOUR PAINT LOOKED LIKE THE DAY YOU FIRST SAW IT??

IT’S NOT TOO LATE. WE EVEN SEE “BRAND NEW” CARS THAT DON’T HAVE PAINT AT THE LEVEL OF FINISH WE THINK SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ACCEPTABLE. WE CAN RESTORE YOUR PAINT TO WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE.

THE ACT OF PHYSICALLY PUTTING A POLISHER TO THE PAINT IS NOT ENOUGH.  IT TAKES A CAREFUL AND CONSTANT CONSIDERATION OF INHERENT PAINT PROPERTIES AND POTENTIAL FAILURE POINTS. BEING MINDFUL OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES, TOOLING, PAD AND BUFFING LIQUID COMBINATIONS, SPECIFIC VEHICLE PRECAUTIONS, AND EVEN THE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS OF THE PAINT ITSELF. NOT ALL PAINT IS CREATED EQUAL. SOME MANUFACTURERS PAINT IS HARDER AND TAKES LONGER TO CORRECT, WHILE SOME IS SOFTER AND CAN REQUIRE FURTHER STEPS TO FINISH OUT PROPERLY. SOME SPOTS SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COST WITH A MACHINE DUE TO LACK OF PAINT TO WORK WITH. EACH CAN HAVE THEIR CHALLENGES. WE CAN HELP SIMPLIFY IT.


DIFFERENT LEVELS OF CORRECTION

WE OFFER MULTIPLE LEVELS OF PAINT CORRECTION AND DEFECT REMOVAL AND CAN TAILER SERVICES TO SPECIFIC PROJECTS.

LEVEL 1: A ONE-STEP PAINT CORRECTION – POLISH (LIGHT TO MODERATE)
  • A LEVEL ONE PAINT CORRECTION IS MEANT TO SAFELY REMOVE LIGHT TO MODERATE DEFECTS SUCH AS LIGHT SWIRLS, AND CAR WASH SCRATCHES IN THE PAINTS FINISH.
LEVEL 2: A TWO-STEP PAINT CORRECTION – COMPOUND + POLISH (MODERATE TO SEVERE)
  • A LEVEL TWO PAINT CORRECTION IS DESIGNED FOR SAFELY REMOVING DEEPER DEFECTS. THIS ALLOWS US TO RESTORE THE PAINT EVEN FURTHER THROUGH A DEDICATED TWO-STEP PROCESS. FIRST, WE UTILIZE PROFESSIONAL GRADE COMPOUNDS TO PROVIDE DEEPER DEFECT REMOVAL OF MODERATE TO SEVERE SWIRLS AND SCRATCHES. AFTERWARDS, WE PERFORM A SECOND STEP WITH A POLISH TO BRING OUT THE CLARITY, DEPTH, AND SHINE THAT WE ALL SEEK!

***MORE STEPS ARE CAN BE NECESSARY DEPENDING ON PAINT CONDITION AND LEVELS OF EXPECTATIONS. WET-SANDING AVAILABLE WHEN NECESSARY BEFORE COMPOUNDING PHASE, BUT GENERALLY ONLY RESERVED FOR SPECIFIC SITUATIONS THAT MEET CERTAIN PAINT DEPTH REQUIREMENTS (AFTERMARKET PAINT JOBS THAT NEED REFINISHING/SHOW LEVEL FINISHES, ETC).


IT IS DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED TO FOLLOW UP ANY FORM OF PAINT CORRECTION WITH A PROFESSIONAL GRADE CERAMIC COATING TO RESTORE THE UV PROPERTIES COMPROMISED IN THE CORRECTION, AS WELL AS PRESERVE, AND EXTEND THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE VEHICLE’S PAINT SYSTEM!
