Buffing, Cut & Polish, Machine Polishing and Paint Correction.  These are all terms that are or have been used to describe the use of a polishing machine to refine the paint surface of a vehicle in the past.

The art of using a machine polisher is one that is learnt.  In untrained hands the wrong choice of machine can mean the difference between a great finished vehicle or one that has gone terribly wrong.  This may result in permanently damaging the paint or other parts of the vehicle.

At Perth Detailing Centre we have a collection of 8 different machines in various sizes  and capabilities to make sure that we have the right tool for each job that we undertake.

In addition to these machines we have a selection of compounds and pads that enables us to achieve the required result not only quicker but safely.



So what is paint correction?

Generally speaking, it is a process where we use a combination of machines, pads and compounds to remove minimum layers from the surface and at the same time remove defects such as scratches and imperfections. 

One combination does not fit all.  Every car is different.  It must be remembered that many factors come into play such as country of origin, make & model, year, history of the car. 

 It is important to realise that the current condition of the vehicle and paint thickness as well, may effect the overall finish.

For this reason, we always recommend that we inspect the vehicle if anything more than 1 stage is required, or if you are unsure of what you need. 

A photo can help and certainly give us an indication.  But for the most part we are unable to get a true understanding of the condition and are also unable to measure the paint to know how much we are able to safely remove.

On arrival to our workshop our team will photo your vehicle from every angle.  This is kept on file and you are welcome to see these at any time.  Its a great way to see what it used to be like.

Your vehicle will then be fully decontaminated , dried and sensitive areas will be masked off to ensure a safe polishing process.

To begin with at the start of the correction we will carry out a test area to ensure we have the best combination to obtain your required result. 

For this reason we will never rush a job or take shortcuts.  Our skilled team pride themselves on obtaining the best results possible for you.
