Many people who ask us to clean and detail their car are not sure if it needs a Paint Correction (Cut & Polish), a Polish or just a Wax. We have put this information together to help make sense of what it all means.

Paint Correction (Cut & Polish)

A cut is usually recommended when the paint on the car is in a pretty bad state – things like multiple scratches and/or oxidization of the paint (when the paint goes dull and perhaps powdery), are the two most common reasons for a cut.

Once the damaged paint, scuff mark or surface scratch has been removed, a coating of wax needs to be applied. This will produce the “shine” and give protection.

Note that it may not be possible to correct damage if excessive.

Polish (sometimes referred to as a Buffing)

This is the most common type of polish we perform. The paint is usually in pretty good shape with maybe a few light scratches & scuff marks, and all it needs is a tidy & clean up.

The product we would use contains both a cutting agent and a wax which would be sufficient to remove the marks and generate that ‘shine’.

Wax

A wax contains no cutting agents and is applied after a cut or where the paint is in good condition and just needs a protective layer, and of course, to enhance the ‘shine’.

Most cars that need ‘wax only’ are either fairly new or have been well maintained.

Sometimes certain parts of a car may need more attention than others, for example, boots, bonnets and car roofs tend to bear the brunt of the sun’s rays and therefore fade & deteriorate quicker than the sides, and boots have boxes, briefcases etc. rested on them and then slid off, creating scratches.

We hope you have found this information helpful, and be assured that all our detailers have been fully trained and will be happy to answer any questions and give advice where necessary.
