Is there a difference between compounding, buffing, polishing and paint correction?

Paint Correction is a professional term for polishing, compounding, or buffing and in turn buffing is the generic term for paint correction. Compounding and polishing is the process of using an orbital polishing machine on car paint. This is done while applying compound to the pad. This process works even on areas that have more degradation than normal. This includes removal of all imperfections including deep scratches, paint overspray, swirl marks, oxidation, etching, hologramming and most surface damage. Paint correction is another way to approach solving these issues. This process removes layers of the clear coat revealing the smooth finish below.

Is there a difference between removing and filling scratches and swirl marks?

Removing defects eliminates the problem while filling only hides the problem. Filling must be repeated to maintain paint correction so it is temporary measure. When scratches and swirls are filled it is usually with low quality products that weren’t made to last. The oil in these products is what hides the scratches and swirls.

It's raining and I don't want to have my car detailed? It will just get dirty again.

In winter there are many more contaminants that accumulate on the car while driving. These contaminants include mud, road tar, industrial debris, grit, grime, and salt. It is nice to enjoy a clean and shiny car with fresh wheels. When your car is protected by regular detailing or ceramic coating even when it may get dirty quicker the contaminants will not have as much chance to accumulate. Thus instead of the contaminants sticking to paint they will stick to the protective products and be easier to clean off during your next detail. Plus if it does rain and your car gets dirty the contaminants are more likely to come off in a regular car wash if they are attached to the protective products.

What is the difference between carnauba waxes and synthetic polymer paint sealants?

Carnauba wax is produced by the Brazilian tree of life. This wax puts off a warm glow and is preferred by car collectors and connoisseurs. It transforms the paint into a deep, liquid pool that shimmers under changing light conditions.

carnauba based wax will protect your vehicle from UV rays, heat, moisture, oxidation and environmental contamination. One application usually lasts 6 – 8 weeks.

Synthetic paint sealants are kind of the anti-carnauba. They are not natural so are inherently more durable. They are made from polymers that are millions of synthetic polymers linked together. Synthetic paint sealants bond to the paint and seal it. They do not have the warm glow of Carnuba wax but rather have a glossy, slick look. A synthetic polymer paint sealant application will last from 4 – 6 months.

My vehicle is new. Does it need to be detailed?

When a car rolls of the factory floor there can be a few flaws in it’s paint still. These imperfections are missed by quality control personnel. Some of these imperfections are dirt specks, run lines, wet sanding marks, pig tails from a D/A sander, and hologramming from improper polishing techniques.

How can I tell that my car needs a clay bar treatment?

Your car accumulates contaminants as you drive. These contaminants can be felt by running your hand across the hood and other affected areas. A clay bar treatment is needed if it feels gritty like sand paper.

Because contaminants attached to your paint cannot be removed by just washing your vehicle, the only way to get your paint really clean is to use a clay bar.

A clay bar is a stick of flexible putty used along with a lubricant like soap and water or detail spray to remove microscopic contaminants from your paintwork. This process makes the treated areas extremely smooth and is a great way to prep for compounding, polishing and waxing. Or (paint correction).
