Car window tinting is the best line of defense against the harmful effects of UV rays. UV rays not only harm your body, but given its electromagnetic nature, it can also damage your car’s electronics.


Car window tinting offers protection against glares. This is beneficial when you are driving at night. It also helps when you are driving in the afternoon in a hilly or elevated area when sudden sun glares can impede your vision momentarily and compromise your safety.


Window tinting blocks out a lot of sun rays, thus reducing the heat that builds up within the car. This allows your AC to function more effectively. Our latest nano-ceramic film ranges can also filter our 96% infra read heat from the sun.


Window tint can block the view of outsiders who tend to try and sneak in a peek. With a window tint on, you can have better privacy and not be bothered by the stares and gazes of others.

What is Paint Correction

Paint correction is the process of removing imperfections from an automotive clear-coat. It can be a 2-stage, 3-stage, or a 6-stage process. If the paint has deep scratches, light oxidation, or etching, a 6-stage process would be the right method, as it includes three stages of wet sanding (with 2000, 3000 and 5000 grit foam disc), two stages of compounding (heavy and light), and a final polishing stage.

Wet sanding is the process that removes the scratched, oxidized clear-coat layer, but it creates a dull finish. It is followed by heavy compounding, which is much less effective in eliminating imperfections, but it restores 80-90% of the gloss. Heavy compounding is followed by light compounding and fine polishing to eliminate hazing holograms and further enhance the gloss.

Paint Correction Steps

Paint Correction is the process of removing imperfections – such as scratches, swirl marks, or even scuffs – from an automotive clear-coat and a standard procedure to prep automotive paints for protective coatings and films. The process include the following steps.
Flood Wash: The process begins with a car wash. We will use a foam cannon and a heavy-duty degreaser to completely foam your car and lift-off the dirt. We will use a pressure washer running at 2.2 GPM to rinse your car and fresh microfiber towels – at least 6 or 10 of them depending on the size of your vehicle – to collect the remaining dirt and dry the exterior.
Deep Exterior Decontamination: In most cases, power washing does not remove 100% decontaminate the exterior of a vehicle. Depending on the type and intensity of the contaminants and deposits, we will either use our industrial steam cleaner with a chemical injection capability to steam-wash your vehicle, or follow the conventional procedure and use iron removers and clay bars to chemically lift-off the deposits and mechanically collect them.
Multi-Stage Paint Correction: Depending on the depth and intensity of imperfections on the automotive paint, 2-stage, 3-stage, or 6-stage paint correction are the methods that we utilize to bring showroom shine back to the paint. If it is a brand-new car, and especially if it is black, 2-stage paint correction will give the best results. On light-color brand-new cars, 1-stage paint correction can also deliver quite satisfactory results, depending on the case. A 3-stage paint correction, on the other hand, will dramatically improve the look of an average 2-3-year-old pre-owned car. If you are seeking absolute perfection on a rough pre-owned car, a 6-stage paint correction will give the best results.

Paint correction has two main benefits; (1) it removes the imperfections, enhances the gloss, and makes the paint shine on the car, (2) it levels the paint, reduces the surface porosity, and increases resistance to oxidation and fading.
If you frequently use drive-thru car washes, you will most likely start seeing swirl marks and scratches on your car after a few washes, especially if it is black. On the other hand, if you occasionally wash it, environmental deposits, dust, etc. will get into the pores of the paint, accelerate oxidation and fade it after a few years. Automotive finishes are exposed to very harsh conditions. Wear-and-tear is inevitable, but it is fixable. Whether you frequently get your car washed or not, it will need paint correction.
