What is the Paint Correction Process?

The paint correction process involves the meticulous elimination of fine scratches, etching, acid rain marks, swirls, water spots, bird droppings, buffer trails, and, in some cases, deeper scratches. Achieving exceptional results requires the expertise of professional paint correctors. At The Valeters, we exclusively employ professional-grade tools and products. Typically, the paint correction procedure comprises the following key stages:

  1. Imperfection Inspection: To kick off the process, our paint correctors carefully assess the vehicle's exterior surfaces. They measure the depth of the paint, ensuring a sufficient clear coat and paint layers are present to facilitate a safe correction.

  2. Vehicle Wash and Decontamination: This stage is paramount in the paint correction process. Our experts employ a specialised automotive clay bar to eradicate stubborn contaminants and industrial buildup. The result is a smooth surface, allowing the polishing machine to glide effortlessly. This thorough wash prevents contaminants from causing damage during the polishing phase.

  3. Wet Sanding and Compounding: While not always necessary, this step comes into play when dealing with substantial imperfections such as orange peel paint or deep scratches. Compounding, a gentler alternative to wet sanding, considers the remaining clear coat and the extent of imperfection severity to determine its need.

  4. Polishing: Typically performed in multiple stages, polishing varies based on factors like clear coat type, imperfection severity, vehicle size, and more. This step involves a combination of machine pads and polishes. Polishing eradicates any marring, holograms, light swirls, and abrasions from the compounding phase, and adds a protective layer to the car's paint for lasting shine and protection.

  5. Sealant Application: The paint correction process culminates with the application of a sealant, offering an additional layer of protection against future imperfections and damages.


The paint correction process not only restores your vehicle's pristine appearance by eliminating imperfections but also shields it from future blemishes. This specialised service isn't available at your local car wash, underscoring the importance of entrusting it to professionals like The Valeters.
