Paint enhancement is a process that improves paintwork’s condition and makes it more vibrant and appealing. This process improves the overall appearance of the paintwork by removing imperfections from the surface. The paintwork must undergo several processes before it is ready for enhancement:
- It must be thoroughly decontaminated.
- It must go through a single-stage polish path using light abrasives.
- It must undergo a process similar to hand polishing, but it is done in a machine to show the actual color of the paintwork.
Next, paint enhancement uses a two-step process that involves two different pads and primers. The first step removes blemishes from the paint’s surface, while the second step improves the gloss of the paint. Each pad and primer combination used by Auto Detailing is chosen based on the vehicle’s needs. Both measures aim to reduce imperfections by as much as 75%.
The final step in the process is to add a layer of protective clear coat to the paintwork. The paintwork must be utterly free of swirls and scuff marks before the protection can be applied. It is also essential to clean the car thoroughly before applying the protective layer. This will help the clear coat last longer and prevent future blemishes.
Single-stage paint enhancement is another method. This polishing process is the most straightforward and affordable method for enhancing the paint’s gloss, depth, and clarity. This process is best suited for cars with a relatively good paint finish and few imperfections in the clear coat. Once the paint job has undergone single-stage paint enhancement, it must be sealed with a wax or paint sealant.
Paint correction is an additional technique that tries to achieve the same level of refinement of the vehicle paint surface as Paint Enhancement. The process usually involves cutting a compound with a polisher. While this process is more expensive than Paint Enhancement, it is often the most effective. The method also helps to correct minor defects in the paint.
