There is no shortage of good looking vehicles on the road in Dubai. Vehicles look very good when they come out of the showroom. As the miles accumulate and a vehicle’s paintwork loses its glossy finish due to the harsh environmental conditions in Dubai and contaminants like bird droppings, you might feel that it is high time to give your car a polishing job.
Car polishing might look like an easy task. After all, you just need to clean the car and polish it well with a nice wax product. However, this is a popular misconception. Car polishing involves a lot of hard work and needs a certain level of expertise. However good the wax used is and however many coats are used, unless the paint is prepared properly, the end result would not be good.
In order to get a perfect finish, the key is proper preparation. This involves two stages: proper removal of contaminants that are bonded to the car’s surface using detailing clay and tar removers and removal of sub-surface defects by polishing, either by hand or with a polishing machine. Sub-surface defects are those created by any sort of damage to the uppermost layer of the paint on a vehicle. This can include minor scratches, swirl marks, water spots, acid etchings caused by bird droppings and remains of insects.
While the first step makes the paint surface perfectly smooth, the second step removes or masks any defects that the paint surface might have and increases the glossy finish of the paint prior to the addition of the polish to give a vehicle the “new car” look.
Many people are unaware of exactly what car polishing involves and feel that it is a job that is best left to professionals. In fact, it is better for those who are not very knowledgeable about the true nature of a polishing job not to do one. They might further damage the paintwork if they attempt to do the polishing job themselves. Poor machine polishing can in fact leave buffer trails or holograms on the paint surface.
If you are not happy with the appearance of your paint job, take your vehicle in to an established garage like Orange Auto in Al Quoz that is staffed by trained professionals. They will ensure that all surface contaminants and subsurface defects are removed before they use products from the leading names in autocare to give your vehicle’s paint the high level of protection and gloss it deserves. A vehicle that leaves Orange Auto after a car polishing job looks just as good as one coming out of a showroom.
