What is paint protection
It's essentially an invisible coating applied over the top of the car's paintwork and serves as a protective layer. It shields the paint from the likes of stone chips, tree sap, bird droppings and fading, all of which are common and damaging to untreated cars. It doesn't protect against heavier damage such as parking scuffs and dents, though.
There are several different types of paint protection:
- Waxes help with gloss and make the paint less susceptible to dirt and grime. They typically last 2 to 4 months depending on the weather, amount the vehicle is washed, and the type of wax. Waxes are easily removed by detergents. They do not protect against scratches, scuff marks, rock chips and chemicals.
- Sealants are a fully synthetic product engineered to protect the paint while improving the overall gloss. Sealants are engineered to bond to the paint surface. Because of this they will last 3-6 months, based on how often its washed, brand chosen etc. They offer protection against sap, road chemicals and UV rays. Sealants can be easily removed by detergents and other chemicals, and last only a few months.
- Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior of the vehicle. The coating chemically bonds to the paint surface. Because this coating bonds to the paint, it lasts longer that traditional waxes and sealants. You can expect it to last 2-4 years or longer if it's cared for. Ceramic coatings do a great job in protecting against the effects of UV rays, sap, road salts, road chemicals and overall make the vehicle easier to keep clean. These coatings do not wash off easily.
Clear Paint Protective Film
- Plastic film is made of thermoplastic urethane. This film is usually used on the areas of the car to most likely get rock chips and minor abrasions. It is the most resistant product to protect against paint damage, but it isn't usually used to protect the entire vehicle.
