Learn Polishing Techniques of all the leading brands

One of the problems dealing with paint defects is that most people do not have a firm grasp on what paint technology is. Here is a list of the most common types of paintwork:

  • Single stage

  • Dual stage (Base & clear-coat)

  • Lacquer

  • Enamel

  • Urethane

  • Water-based

 

Paint also has multiple layers that can be damaged from:

 

  • Scratches

  • Swirls

  • Bird droppings

  • UVA & UVB rays

  • Oxidation

  • Overspray

  • Paint exchange from minor collisions

  • Keys
