Ming Mirror Finish
What Is Ming?
Ming is neither a wax nor a coating. In fact, MING is more a process than a finish. The MING process enhances a vehicle’s painted finish by smoothing out its pits and valleys (sometimes called “pores”) where dirt, grime and pollutants collect. In a conventional treatment, waxes or polishes are rubbed or buffed into these pores to cover the paint. The shine comes from the ingredients of the wax or coating. With MING, the shine you see is the reflection of the actual paint surface, not wax or another coating.
Along with smoothing out the pits and valleys , the MING process toughens and hardens the paint making it resistant to the detrimental effects of the environment. The only upkeep necessary is a gentle, weekly washing. You need not wax or polish your vehicle for 3 years, though with proper care, most MING treatments last around 5 years.
The MING Process
STEP 1 – REMOVE CONTAMINANTS
The rough porous surface allows dirt and grime to collect deep into the paint. The first step of the MING process is removing the surface contaminants with a clay bar and polish.
STEP 2 – OPEN THE PORES
MING’s special process uses proprietary compounds and equipment to open the paint’s pores and completely level the finish. This removes the majority of the most common paint imperfections, like minor scratches, hard waters spots, swirl marks and oxidation. This step restores the vehicle’s mirror-like finish.
STEP 3 – SMOOTHING IT OVER
Using our signature polishing process in concert with our proprietary paint protection and hardening compound, the open pores are sealed and an additional clear, hardened layer is added onto the finish. With scratches removed, pores filled and the surface perfectly flat, the mirror-like finish is restored and protected.
