Preparation is the cornerstone of any successful automotive refinishing project. It involves a series of meticulous steps to ensure a clean, smooth surface ready for paint application. Some or our key preparation products include:

  • Degreasers and Cleaners: These products effectively remove grease, oil, wax, and other contaminants from the vehicle’s surface. They are essential for achieving proper adhesion of paint and primers.
  • Abrasives: Sandpapers, sanding blocks, and abrasive pads are used to smooth out imperfections, remove old paint, and create a uniform surface for painting. Different grits are employed depending on the severity of the imperfections and the type of substrate.
  • Masking Materials: Masking tape, paper, and plastic sheeting are used to protect areas of the vehicle that should not be painted, such as windows, trim, and tires. Proper masking ensures clean paint lines and prevents overspray.

Paints and Painting Products

Selecting the right paint and painting products is paramount to achieving a flawless finish and long-lasting durability. Automotive paints are specially formulated to withstand harsh environmental conditions and provide a vibrant, lasting colour. Key painting products supp;ies by IPS include:

  • Basecoat: Basecoat paints provide color and coverage to the vehicle’s surface. They are available in a wide range of colors and finishes and are applied after priming.
  • Clearcoat: Clearcoat paints add depth, gloss, and protection to the basecoat. They provide a smooth, durable finish that enhances the color and resists fading and damage from UV rays.


  • Thinners: Paint thinners are used to adjust the viscosity of paints for optimal spraying consistency. They help achieve smooth, even coverage and facilitate proper flow and drying.
  • Primers: Primers are applied to the vehicle’s surface before painting to promote adhesion, fill imperfections, and prevent corrosion. They come in various types, including etching primers, epoxy primers, and high-build primers, each suited to different substrates and conditions.

Finishing Products

Finishing products add the final touches to the automotive refinishing process, enhancing the appearance and protection of the painted surface.  The main finishing products we offer our clients include:

  • Polishes and Compounds: Polishes and compounds are used to remove swirl marks, fine scratches, and oxidation from the painted surface, restoring its shine and clarity.
  • Waxes and Sealants: Waxes and sealants provide a protective barrier against environmental contaminants, UV rays, and harsh weather conditions. They help maintain the paint’s lustre and extend its longevity.
  • Vinyl wraps and vinyl transfers: these products offer versatile solutions for vehicle customisation, branding, and protection. They provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional paint jobs, allowing for quick installation and easy removal without damaging the vehicle’s underlying paint.
  • Detailing and valeting products: Detailing and valeting products encompass a wide range of cleaners, polishes, waxes, and protectants designed to enhance the appearance of both the exterior and interior surfaces of vehicles.


The products used in automotive body shops play a critical role in achieving professional-quality results and ensuring customer satisfaction. From meticulous preparation to selecting the right paints, thinners, primers, and finishing touches, each product contributes to the overall success of the refinishing process.
