What is detailing?

Detailing

Detailing involves cleaning and bringing a shine to the car’s paint, windows, wheels, and tyres. Using different products to do this, including detergents, detail clay, waxes, polishes, and a variety of applicators and microfibre cloths.

Cleaning

Cleaning includes the removal of all foreign surface particles from exterior surfaces through the use of washing and claying. A clay bar helps to clean contamination/dirt from within the clear coat that cannot be removed through weekly washing such as insects, tar, sap, etc.

Correcting

Correcting refers to the use of mechanical polishes by hand or with a machine and specific polishing pads that remove microns of clear coat from a vehicle to remove fine scratches and swirls from a paint surface produced from improper washing or drying technique. This is carried out by re-levelling the lacquer by 1 or 2 microns, so that the paintwork reflects light perfectly at all angles, including direct sunlight.

Protecting

Protecting involves the application of a protective wax (in liquid or paste form) that prevents foreign matter from adhering to the surface of the vehicle, including water, insects splatter, tar, and dirt. Waxes and sealants provide this barrier against the elements. Waxes are some of the most expensive elements of the detailing process. ALTEC DETAILING uses handmade boutique waxes and sealants containing 37% – 60% carnauba wax.
