With two stages of correction, we can remove a wider range of imperfections, restore oxidized or faded paint, and leave your car with a stunning, consistent finish that's sure to turn heads.
What is a 2 Step Paint Correction?
A two-step paint correction involves using a dual-action polisher and specialized compounds to remove the top layer of clear coat and correct the paint defects. The first step, called compounding, involves using an abrasive compound to remove the majority of the defects in the paint. The second step, called polishing, uses a less abrasive polish to refine the finish left by the compounding step and restore the clarity and gloss of the paint.
A two-step approach enhances efficiency by prioritizing critical errors initially, resulting in a streamlined and effective correction process.
Two-step correction allows for a more precise and targeted approach to correcting errors or issues.
Address up to 90% of the paint defects, including small/medium scratches, swirl marks, and water spots. This process can also remove the hazy appearance that can result from using abrasive compounds, leaving your car's paint with a smooth, glossy finish.
A two-step paint correction isn't just for correcting existing paint defects. It can also benefit brand new cars that may have paint defects from the manufacturing process, such as sanding marks, buffer trails, or hazing. By using a two-step paint correction, you can ensure that your brand new car looks its best right from the start.
Overall, a two-step paint correction is the ultimate solution for anyone looking to transform the appearance of their car's paint. Whether your car has severe paint defects or is brand new, a professional can use a two-step paint correction to restore your car's paint to a showroom finish.
If you are looking to sell your vehicle you can use our 1-step paint correction service to prep your car's paint for potential buyers. It removes up to 70% of minor swirl marks and scratches, leaving a glossy finish that can make your car more appealing to the buyer.
