Yes, overspray can be buffed out using a machine polisher combined with the right cutting pad and compound. However, it should not be the first step during the car overspray removal phase. Proper decontamination must take place prior, firstly, the overspray needs to be removed, whether it is cement, tree sap, paint or so on. Using a machine polisher first will scratch the paintwork and rip the polishing pad to shreds like sandpaper. We would use the machine polisher after we have properly washed the vehicle only.
A clay bar can remove some overspray, for example acidic chemicals like tree sap, but for contaminants that are more stubborn such as oil based paints, cement, polymers and so on, it will not do that much. In fact, the clay bar would be more of a step to follow through once the contamination overspray has been removed. Although a clay bar will not remove your clear coat, it can cause micro-marring if used too aggressively, this is where a machine polish comes in handy to rectify and correct these minor blemishes. The effectiveness of a clay bar heavily depends on the severity of the overspray and chemical being used.
We would highly advise against doing this as this is highly susceptible to more damage. Sometimes in the worst case scenario, can chip off the paint, which will require paint touch up and a recoating of clear coat to rectify (very tedious and can be expensive). Also, scratching and flicking overspray by force is only going to damage the paint even further with micro-marring, scratches and other minor blemishes. Always seek professional assistance when removing the overspray and refrain from using any physical force.
If your car is protected with a ceramic or graphene coating, then you will most definitely need to have it re-applied. The process to remove and correct overspray will mean the paint protection to will be removed and thinned out. This too, is a service that we provide and can be a great way to protect your car once the overspray has been addressed due to its years of durability, hardness and gloss.
It is always hard to tell until we perform a test panel. The amount of overspray, how long it has been there, the type of overspray and so on, all affect the time required to correct and restore. Typically speaking, the longer the overspray has been left there, the more time that is required to fix it. Time is a crucial factor, so early correction is a must.
No matter how much of a fantastic result we achieve, there is always an element of risk that there may be some overspray left. Especially when the overspray has made its way on to the plastic trims, unlike the paintwork or glass panels, of which a machine buffer can be used, this cannot be done for plastic trims. Using this technique will only burn through the plastic and turn it grey. This means a less aggressive technique must be used and there are no guarantees until tested/tried. Not all overspray react the same due to many contributing factors involved.
The majority of cars affected by overspray can be dealt with using traditional methods by a professional car detailer. However, in the rare occurrences whereby the usual techniques do show great progress, but still have quite a heavy amount of contamination remaining, then this is where it may require a panel beater instead. This is where the paint will most likely need an aggressive wet-sanding process to sand the surface down to the bare and respray the car with a restorative clear coat. Wet sanding is more often avoided because it is super aggressive and sands down your clear coat (which is what protects your car). Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing how effective one method is until it is performed, severity and stubbornness of overspray will vary from car to car, case by case basis.
But what exactly is it and why do most car overspray removal Melbourne experts strongly suggest addressing it as soon as possible?
For most of you, you may not realise it, but you most likely have an overspray on your car. Anything stuck on your car, such as an unidentified sediment, is an overspray. Whatever that thing is that’s affecting the glossy look of your vehicle? That’s overspray.
In the auto restoration industry, any sediment, particulate, or particle sitting on the clear coating of the car is termed as an overspray. You can simply tell it is when there’s a rough texture as you swipe your finger through it.
While some overspray can be easily removed, some aren’t that simple. For example, a fire soot that settles very low on the car’s clear coating may require deep polishing. It’s very important for this type of overspray to be completely removed prior to adding paint protection to the vehicle.
So, how does overspray happen?
One of the most common reasons for overspray is the wind. When spray painting is used on windy days, your vehicle will easily catch whatever the wind carries. Equipment such as a metal foundry or an indoor paint booth has a filter that blows away extra contaminants. These contaminants are then carried by the wind and scattered in many places, including the roadway.
Other particles coming from construction projects can cause overspray as well. These include fresh asphalt, road paint, and wet cement, to name a few.
But thankfully, Schmicko has well-trained car overspray removal Melbourne experts who can resolve this problem without compromising the exterior look of your car.
