The 3 Main Reasons for PPF
These are the three biggest reasons why our customers choose to invest in Paint Protection Films
Similar in concept and function to the stick-on films that protect your iPhone from scratches, automotive Paint Protection Films (PPF) create a protective layer on the surface of your vehicle, providing a barrier between your car’s paint and gravel, scuffs, pollution, and contaminants. Clear films have their inception in the military, where they were used to 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 the 3 main reasons why so many people are choosing Paint Protection Films to keep their vehicles safe:
1. Protection from Environmental Hazards
Every single time you take your car on the road it is exposed to a variety of environmental hazards. Corrosive materials such as tree sap or bird droppings can damage and stain your vehicle’s paint. Pollutants found in rain can strip wax and damage clear coat. Acid rain will leave scarring as the acidic chemical burns 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. Flying road debris, such as gravel kicked up by passing motorists, will chip your paint and expose your bodywork to rust.
High-quality PPF effectively protects against ALL of these environmental hazards. Protecting your car’s paint is the best way to protect your car’s body from rust, and PPF is the best way to keep your car’s paint in perfect shape. Paint repair can be expensive, especially when large areas need to be sanded away to treat the rust underneath. PPF is the ultimate representation of the saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
3. Spend Less Time on Car Care
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. Enjoy a cleaner car with less effort, what’s not to like?
4. Increase Your Car’s Resale 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 paint protection film is the best way to keep the paint looking good while preventing damage that would detract from the overall value of the car. Most vehicle “modifications” are performance-based and generally frowned upon by prospective buyers. Unlike standard mods, PPF is something the next owner will be happy to pay for.
