This Is Our Craft
Nothing draws your eye to a car more than the rich, deep glow of a mirror-like finish. Achieving this level of finish is possible only by the hands of a properly trained and experienced paint correction specialist. Paint correction is a skilled, labor-intensive finishing technique that involves utilizing nano abrasives and machine polishing to remove microns of clear coat, eliminating defects and bringing out the utmost clarity and brilliance of your paint. However, proper and safe machine polishing is a technical art that is mastered by very few. At HQD, we always stay up to date on the latest and most advanced techniques, training, tools, and products so that we are always able to offer our customers the best execution of our craft.

What To Know
Paint correction or paint polishing is not a required step prior to having a ceramic coating or paint protection film (PPF) installed. However, most cars’ paint is flawed, even brand new cars. Sometimes flawed paint is visible and sometimes it is not as visible to the eye. If a coating or film is applied to even slightly flawed paint, the flaws will become enhanced and stand out more. Wondering why a brand-new car would have any kind of paint flaw or damage? A brand-new car’s paint may get damaged in transit, from overspray, and even from getting washed at the dealer and can become slightly scratched or marred. Most brand-new cars benefit from at least a single-stage paint correction prior to having paint protection film or a ceramic coating installed. During our single-stage paint correction process our correction specialists use a range of high-end specialty compounds with diminishing abrasives which remove 50% to 80% of defects.
