Paint Correction Melbourne



Paint Correction Melbourne Packages

Paint Correction Melbourne, is designed to correct major paint defects and maximise the visual appeal of bodywork, and is recommended for poorly maintained vehicles of all ages that have acquired heavy swirl marks and light scratches over time. 

Includes a multi stage machine polishing process, which removes a small percentage of the uppermost layer of paint on the car and reveals a fresh layer of unblemished paint beneath, even on Ceramic Clear Coats that are designed to be a scratch resistant Clear. 

We can usually guarantee correction of  95% of paint defects present, although total paint thickness and defect severity are sometimes limiting factors.

The Paint Correction Melbourne procedure typically takes between 3-40 hours (depending on the size of the vehicle being treated) necessitating that the work is spread over one to five full days.

What is Paint Correction?

Paint Correction is a process of abrasively polishing or evening out the clear coat to remove layers of paint generally 1-2 microns (your paint is generally 120-180 microns).

In most cases, scratches, swirl marks, buffer marks, micro-marring, and holograms are entirely removed from the paint surface, this includes newer Ceramic Clears used and previously applied Ceramic Sealants.

This also restores dull or faded paintwork to its original glory, as light can be perfectly reflected from this newly un-oxidised and re-levelled surface.

Customers who have experienced this service often compare its effect to a full respray – at a fraction of the cost and inconvenience. And some have even said that the paintwork looks better than when it was new.

Paint Correction vs Cut & Polishing.

Cut & Polishing rids defects of up to 75%. With Coarse Compounds still acting the same way as Cut & Polishing, Paint Correcting combines the techniques, equipment and Polishes to Increase defect removal of up to 95%.

Technology has also changed the face of Cut & Polishing as traditional methods of Cut & Polishing really refers to the conventional Flat Colours and Acrylic 2 Pak Paints.

As Cars get more sophisticated, so do their clear coats, and with many different types of makes and models, you should choose a company that has the experience in handling all types of Paintwork.


This service is provided on a one-to-one basis, to help you decide the level of application your car requires or to assess the standard of your car’s paintwork. New cars, for example, can be inspected for paint defects before collection.

  1. Digital Paintwork Readings

    Paint levels will be measured in microns, Daniel will also confirm what techniques will be required to remove any paint/clear coat defects. At this point, you can find out if panels have been resprayed. (EPDG – POSITECTOR DELFESCO – Calibrated in New York)

  2. Panel Test

    As part of the Detail demonstration, a panel of the car, usually one the bonnet, will be washed down, decontaminated, corrected to see result of expectations.

  3. In-depth Consultation
