Congratulations! You just bought a new car! It has that new car smell, that new car feel, and, of course, the new car look. Surely, you want to keep that going for as long as possible. Not only does protecting your new vehicle feel great, it can help preserve the value of your car.
What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint protection film is a thin clear film layer applied to your car’s exterior. Paint protection film is typically sprayed onto the vehicle’s exterior. Generally, your paint protection film is applied to the raw paint of the car before it’s shined or waxed. When applied correctly, your paint protection film can last upwards of ten years with a minimum of five. How long your film lasts depends on your personal vehicle use. Paint protection film reduces the amount you need to get your car waxed or shined and prevents early rusting. Some dealerships will offer paint protection film treatments with new cars, other times, you will have to specifically ask or find your own PPF experts.
Is Paint Protection Film Worth it?
When you get a new car, applying paint protection film can extend that new car look and feel for additional years! Paint protection film does not alter anything about the car’s original appearance and instead serves as a layer of effective protection from potential hazards. Hazards include general scratches, paint chips, stains, and rust due to water and wear. Paint protection film can extend the fresh look of your car simply. Installing paint protection film on your car’s exterior is certainly worth it, so long as you see the experts. Trying to apply the film on your own is not advised and improper application can result in serious external damages that could have been avoided. Instead of spending undue time and energy applying the film on your own, call the experts at SRS Tinting for high-quality products and expert installation.
When You can Skip the Film
When you have PPF installed on your car, you can get away with waxing, washing and shining your car less. This immediately reduces the additional costs of a new car. If you prefer to professionally wax and polish your car, then you might be okay skipping the PPF. Additionally, if you prefer ceramic coating, regular paint jobs, or vehicle wraps, then there is no need for paint protection films.
