5 Reasons to PPF
Any time you drive through an active construction zone, the need for high quality Paint Protection Film becomes apparent. PPF does more than protect your paint from chips, here are 5 big reasons to PPF.
Similar in concept and function to the stick-on films that protect your iPhone from scratches- automotive paint protection film provides a layer between the surface of your vehicle and is designed to provide a bumper between your car’s paint and gravel, scratches, pollution, and UV rays. Clear films have their inception in the military, and protect vehicles and expensive components. They’ve now made it to the consumer market and are used to protect automotive surfaces against scrapes, rock chips and airborne contaminants.
Paint protection film can be applied on the vulnerable parts of your vehicle like the hood, bumper and quarter panels for optimal aesthetics and durability. Here are five benefits you can enjoy by investing in car protection film:
1. Keep Your Car Safe from Environmental Hazards
Every time you take your car on the road it naturally comes into contact with a variety of environmental hazards. Corrosive materials such as tree sap or bird droppings can damage or stain your vehicles paint. Pollutants found in rain can damage the paint. Acid rain will damage the paint by chemicals in the water droplets burning themselves into your paint. The sun’s rays make a water droplet a powerful magnifying glass, which is why even plain water will damage a paint finish. Let’s not forget about flying rocks and pebbles can chip the paint resulting in an expensive trip to the repair shop.
2. Reduce UV Damage
Just like your skin, your car is at risk to be damaged by UV radiation. Think of paint protection film as sunscreen for your car. Car paint protection film is specifically designed to block UV rays from the surface of your paint, preventing fading and ensuring your paint keeps its bright shiny lustre.
3. Easier and More Effective Cleaning
Paint protection film makes washing easier, and results in less vehicle maintenance overall, freeing up time to drive and enjoy your car. When you don’t have time to wash, or if you live in an area with water restrictions, you can simply polish your vehicle with a dry soft cloth.
4. Increase Your Car’s Value
Presenting a clean, like-new exterior can net you significantly more money when it comes to reselling your car. First impressions mean a lot, and car paint protection film keep the paint looking good and prevents damage that could detract from value. Unlike other upgrades that are performance based, most buyers will see the value in paint protection film, because you’re passing on the protection to them.
5. Wax-Free Maintenance
The look of a freshly waxed car can be had without the waxing. Paint protection film gives you the protective coat that wax would provide, with additional benefits of protecting from flying rocks and debris.
