Car Wax & Polish Services
Autohaus Polishing recommends car polishing and waxing every few months, assuming your vehicle has a good paint finish on it! Depending on the polishing products used, you may even go up to 12 months before your next polishing job! Vehicles which are less exposed to natural elements usually do not need to be polished more than twice a year! There are exceptions when the vehicle is in contact with industrial fallout or rail. At that time, it should quickly receive a decontamination wash along with a clay bar treatment whenever polishing is not possible.
Car Polishing & Paint Correction
What is the difference between polishing and paint correction? Polishing is a process to enhance the paintwork using abrasives to level out small surface defects within your vehicle’s paint. In this process, the polishing abrasives will fill and mask such defects. Paint correction actually removes the defects by removing some of the clear coat through additional leveling.
The video below is an example of our Paint Enhancement Treatment, which consists of performing:
- Decontamination Wash
- Clay Bar Treatment
- Single Pass Polishing
- Polymer Sealant
Polymer Sealant & Traditional Waxing
Waxing is the process of adding protection to your vehicle’s paintwork after the polishing treatment. Wax is a natural carnauba product which does not contain abrasives or paint fillers. It is applied to freshly polished surfaces to add depth to the finished paintwork. A polymer sealant is a synthetic application which is used to protect the paintwork after polishing. It tends to be much more durable than a traditional wax.
