Paint Oxidation occurs on the surface of a vehicle's paint over time from buildup and damage from the sun's rays. Oxidation causes the paint to look dull and old. It can be removed and the paint can be restored if specific steps are carefully followed. One person can restore auto paint with oxidation in only a few hours, depending the extent of the damage.
It usually takes a high speed buffer to accomplish this but if you catch the oxidation before it gets to bad you can actually remove it by hand but that is a ton of physical labor.You had better be in good shape because it is some hard ass work.
Paint Oxidation Test
Is your car Oxidized?Rub your fingers on your paint.Do you get a white residue on your finger?Ask your self ,Is the paint shiny?Does it gleam.If not you have a situation that you need to deal with if you want to save your paint job.Once you let it go to far, you might as well get ready to have your car painted In the picture to the right you see an area that I buffed out with a high speed buffer.
The owner neglected the paint and it oxidized.The only way to deal with this type of hard core paint is a high speed buffer.
It is crucial that a professional operates the high speed buffer or your paint could be ruined.
What I mean by ruined is a rookie will burn a hole through your paint to the metal or just swirl it to the max
This process is very labor intensive.
Normally on a standard size car prices start at100.00 for exterior paint restoration
Below is another example.
Oxidation happens on boats,airplanes RV's.Basically anything that is in the sun will oxidize if you don't take care of it.
Did you buy a so called never wax again product and thought you were okay.There is no such thing as never wax again,unless you are using a paint sealant like Simix
Even then you should reapply a coat every 8 months if the vehicle is garaged and every 4 to 6 months if it is not.
Make no mistake, Your car will Oxidize if You Do not Protect it
