BURTEX's Approach to Expert Paint Correction

Exploring Car Paint Correction Basics

Paint correction is a detailed process aimed at rectifying defects in a car's paintwork, such as scratches, swirl marks, and oxidation. It involves carefully polishing the vehicle's surface to remove a thin layer of clear coat, which, in turn, eradicates imperfections and enhances the car's shine

The Art and Science of Paint Correction: Why Trusting Professionals Matters

In the realm of car paint correction, expertise and precision are paramount. While DIY approaches may be tempting, they lack the finesse and knowledge professionals bring.
Over-polishing, for instance, can lead to clear-coat failure, damaging your vehicle's paint permanently. Professionals, however, skillfully employ a lacquer thickness gauge to prevent paint burn and ensure optimal thickness.
Polishes are abrasive; hence, they should only be used as necessary to avoid excessive material removal. Trusting experts like us ensures that your car's aesthetic remains pristine, minimizing risks and maximizing results.

Does Ceramic Coating Add Thickness to Paint?

Ceramic coating, a thin layer of protection that sits atop your vehicle's clear coat, can slightly enhance paint thickness. The primary component, silicon dioxide or SiO2, adds about 1-2 microns per layer.
More than thickness, ceramic coating improves the hardness of the car's lacquer, taking it from a 1-4 on Mohs' scale to a solid 9H, providing exceptional resilience against scratches and environmental damage.

How Often Should I Polish My Car?

Polishing your car should be an 'as-needed' process. Polishes, while effective, are abrasive and can gradually thin the paint. Over-polishing can lead to cutting through the clear coat and the paint to the undercoat. At BURTEX, we provide a detailed record showing the clear coat thickness before and after our services, along with personalized recommendations. One such advice is the application of a ceramic coating. Acting as a protective barrier, ceramic coating not only reduces the need for frequent polishing but also enhances paint longevity.
