PAINT CORRECTION TULSA:
ITS MEANING AND REASONS WHY IT IS NEEDED
IF YOU HEAR THE TERM “PAINT CORRECTION,” DO YOU THINK OF PAINT POLISHING OR PAINTING? WE ARE HERE TO CLEAR UP THE MEANING OF THE TERM, PAINT CORRECTION.
Paint correction is the mechanical leveling of clear coat or paint (clear coat is unpigmented paint, clear) to a point where all the paint is free of swirl marks and light scratches. Swirl marks are essentially a “V” cut/slice in the paint where light bounces around in the valley of the scratch and exits. This is how you see the swirl marks and then search Google for Paint Correction Tulsa.
As the polishing steps are carried out, there are various degrees of aggressiveness which are used for different levels of desired end results. For example, not everyone needs or should have “perfect paint,” some are simply ok with much better, not perfect. Not everyone looks at their paint with a flashlight. This can be a straightforward and simple process, or a very labor intensive process where experience and knowledge are of the utmost importance depending on the car owner’s expectations. We take the time to figure out the proper steps and use the correct products to achieve the desired results in a timely fashion. We don’t cut corners by “filling” in defects by using oils and glazes to make it “look” like things were done, only to find out after two washes all the oils are removed and your paint looks the same as before. This is why when you are looking for Paint Correction Tulsa, White Glove Auto is your top option.
We have designed our packages in the paint correction category based on our combined 10 years of experience in this field. Our 1 Stage (gloss enhancement) is designed for those looking for more gloss with a bit of swirl mark removal. The 2 Stage is for more clarity in your paint and is designed for those looking for a good amount of correction (removal of swirls and light scratches) and a lot more gloss. This is our most popular package. Then there comes the Stage 3 paint correction. This includes a heavy compound step, a medium polish step, and fine final polish step. The 3 Stage is for those looking to really turn their car’s paint around and get back to square one with about 90% to 95% correction.

HOW LONG SHOULD PAINT CORRECTION TAKE?
This is a varying answer and there are many reasons why it can range from 5 hours for a simple one step, or 30 hours for a much more involved multi-step process. We have over 90 combinations of products, pads, and machines to get the job done right the first time. We will perform a couple test spots in order to make sure we get the results that the customer is looking for. Proper Paint Correction is not a fast or simple procedure to do correctly, we understand that and have implemented a process to deliver results every time.
PROTECTING THE PAINT AFTER A PAINT CORRECTION
We have a few options here, some better than others, which include Gtechniq or XPEL Ceramic Coatings, coating toppers,
The best protection for your vehicle is our: XPEL Ultimate Plus 10 paint protection film. XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS 10 is a high performance, ultra-thick, self-adhesive, clear-coated aliphatic polyurethane film designed to protect automotive paint, and other surfaces, from harmful effects of stone chips and abrasion. XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS 10 is a very low surface energy film designed to resist staining and offers superior environmental resistance and gloss retention. The clear coat employs special elastomeric polymers that allow scratches in the surface to “heal” over time, eliminating the need for frequent polishing to maintain a just installed appearance. XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS 10 is coated with ultra-clear high performance acrylic adhesive which has excellent adhesion on a broad range of surfaces, while resisting disturbances during installation. This high performance acrylic adhesive is formulated to resist delamination, it will not damage paint or leave behind residue upon removal post installation.
Premium Ceramic Coating using Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra 9 year: Crystal Serum Ultra is the Ceramic Coating you can get, it keeps your car looking glossy and new, prolonging the life of your paintworks perfect finish. Key to Crystal Serum Ultras performance gain is the introduction of a revolutionary new 7nm nanoparticle alongside an existing 20nm nanoparticle, and increasing the ratio of crosslinkers which reinforce and thicken the top layer of the coating. The hard 10h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h paint protection coatings. Compared to standard ceramic paint coatings, Crystal Serum Ultra can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings. The molecular structure of the hard top layer is exceptionally chemical resistant. Crystal Serum Ultra can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings. An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and hard top layer is that Crystal Serum Ultra is very resistant to extreme heat changes, even from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius. Crystal Serum Ultra can be applied either as a stand-alone paint protection product, or for the best hydrophobic performance, it can be over coated with Gtechniq EXO.

WHAT TOOLS DO WE USE FOR PAINT CORRECTION
We have several tools that we use in order to properly correct your vehicle paint, we use 5 different kinds or orbital polishers by Rupes
The perfectly balanced Rupes polisher, combined with foam polishing pads of the RUPES BigFoot range, guarantees rapid cutting and an impeccable finish.
WHAT IS RANDOM ORBITAL: the backing plate follows an orbit (the amplitude of which depends on the distance between the rotation axis of the drive shaft and the central axis of the backing plate) and is free to rotate about its own central axis. The backing plate is free to rotate at varying velocities and directions by effect of the centrifugal force of the offset movement and by effect of friction. Should the friction forces be such as to prevent rotation of the disc while the tool is still operating, the random orbital movement would simply become an orbital movement. The number of disc rotations is variable and independent of the number of orbits performed. The random orbital movement is at present the best compromise in terms of effectiveness and surface treatment quality.
