A paint correction refers to compounding and polishing a vehicles paint near perfection. This means countless hours are spent on polishing the paint in order to bring it to the highest quality that can be achieved by removing as many defects and blemishes that can be removed in a safe manner to restore the paintwork in most cases to a better than new state.
There are cases where some scratches will not polish out. In these cases the technician polishing your vehicle will make note of this as removing that imperfection or blemish would not be safe to the paint around it. Not all vehicles are suitable for a paint correction as they might not have enough paint and or if the owner is not going to be able to ensure that the vehicle receives the highest quality of proper maintenance in order to prolong the life of the vehicles paint work. After a paint correction the paint will look glossier and richer than ever before due to their not being blemishes to reflect the light in different directions.
