Satin / Matt / Matte Paint Cleaning & Detailing

From £300

With many manufacturers offering this special paint finish as an optional extra and satin matt paint finishes becoming every increasingly popular. However, they are far from the easiest finish to maintain! Whether it be a vinyl wrap or an actual painted surface, Refined Detail can help – without invalidating any form of paintwork warranty / disclaimer that you may have had to sign.

Satin Matt paint is extremely vulnerable to staining, marking and scratching – unfortunately due to their porous nature, and ‘unconventional’ finish, conventional correction techniques & products cannot be used. There is currently no solution on the market as yet that allows the correction of such finishes. Satin matt paint is also susceptible to staining from greasy fingerprints, bird droppings, bugs, conventional car shampoos and traffic film / road grime. Many conventional cleaning products contain gloss enhancers, silicones and synthetic waxes which will instantly ruin the appearance of satin matt paint.

However, using various professional, premium grade products that are specifically designed for satin matt finishes, it is now possible to not only clean & cleanse the paint, but to offer durable protection through a specially formulated premium quality carnauba wax. Protecting the car from the start is the best method to help maintain a fantastic defect free satin matt finish. These specific products will help prevent water spotting, and slow down the build up of dirt & grime on the surface.

This detail must be carried out at my unit in Henfield (BN5) to allow me to control the working environment fully (something that is necessary when striving for perfection and to allow products to work correctly) I can also arrange for full wheel refurbishment / recolouring and Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) to be carried out whilst the car is in my custody.
