What is a single stage paint correction?

​Often in our posts we refer to a single stage paint correction, basically what this means is buffing the surface of the vehicle for one pass with one type of compound and one type of pad. 


Performing this type of paint correction helps rejuvenate the paint and heavily reduce light surface scratches, giving your vehicle that new again finish. After paint correction is completed we then go over the vehicle with either a wax sealant or ceramic coating protection to lock in our hard work. 


Some people may opt for a two or even three stage paint correction, this means using various types of compounds and pads for however many passes. A person who opts for this may have a vehicle with severely damaged paint. Most of the time we like to recommend a single stage paint correction as this is usually all it takes to get the finish looking new again and won’t cause any damage to thickness of the paint for future detailing.​

What is Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic Coating is an ultra-durable, high-gloss, slick to the touch, chemically bonded inorganic layer that is optically clear.  Once applied, gloss levels will remain in the upper 90th percentile for significantly longer when compared to traditional paint protection products, and cleaning your car will be a breeze.

The high density ceramic layer is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 - pH12.  When it comes to adding gloss, resisting swirls, contaminant and dirt repellency, Ceramic Coating is the pinnacle in paint protection.This characteristic also makes bonded contaminants such as tree sap, tar, and hard water spots easy to remove.

Unlike mainstream wax and organic polymer coatings, our ceramic coating can resist much higher and lower temperatures - temperatures as low as -40­° to as high as +250°c.

What is Wax Sealant?

Wax is all about protecting the vehicles paint while also adding gloss and reducing the appearance of imperfections. In this day-and age-wax is antiquated compared to higher performance options from Gtechniq which offer protection for years not months. Although wax still has its place in car detailing as a low cost option for protection of your vehicle from the elements. Generally you would expect wax to last for around 2-4 months depending on the conditions the vehicle is exposed to.
