Don’t Let These 4 Mistakes Get In The Way Of Your Paint Correction

Paint correction is the process of removing paint defects, such as scratches and swirl marks from automotive paint. It is essential in the paint repair process because it eliminates any paint imperfections that may be visible after paint or a clear coat has been applied to the surface.

If paint correction is done incorrectly, it can lead to paint problems down the road and more money spent on paint repairs in the future. People make many mistakes when performing paint corrections, which we will go over in detail below.

This blog post includes four points of advice for avoiding common paint repair mistakes if you’re looking for professional results.

1. Using Too Much Compound or Polish

Using too much paint correction compound or polish will only end in disaster. If you’re painting over a scratched surface, it’s best to use paint correction pads designed to remove paint defects. It is crucial to remember that paint repair should be done gradually by applying less pressure and working paint correction products into the paint until rubbed away.

Over time, you will be able to tell if paint repair has been completed by checking how much of a shine your paint is radiating and noticing whether or not you have removed all of the scratches on the surface.

2. Not Using Enough Lubricant

It’s important to use paint correction lubricants when performing paint corrections because they minimize heat generation and reduce friction between the paint surface and the paint correction pad.

Not using enough of these products can lead to marring, holograms in your clear coat, or burning the paint with excessive pressure applied by paint correction pads. To avoid this, use paint correction lubricants liberally and be sure to wipe away any excess product.

3. Not Checking Paint Correction Pads for Frayed Edges

If paint correction pads seem damaged, such as a cut or tear in the pad itself, they should be thrown out immediately and replaced with new paint correction products. This is not an area where you want to economize; if there’s even one tiny nick on your paint correction pad, it could cause paint scratches and damage your car.

4. Not Using the Proper Paint Removal Technique

There are several types of paint removal techniques, and which one you use will depend on what type of vehicle it is. The important thing is that you do not have any leftover residue from the paint remover because if you do, it could cause more damage when performing other steps in the paint correction process.
