When you love your car, every knick hurts. Whether it’s your dream car or fresh off the lot, we understand that you would want your car to stay in perfect condition. You may have looked into the many ways to protect the paint job on your car. Luckily, there is one option that stands above the rest: car paint protection film.
What is Car Paint Protection?
Sometimes referred to as a clear bra, clear film, or PPF, paint protection film is a clear or colored polyurethane film that is applied directly onto a vehicle by a trained professional. In what was originally only used for military purposes, paint protection film has been adopted throughout the world from commercial cars to professional Nascar race car teams.
1. Protects Damage to Your Car
So what does paint protection actually protect against? When applied to a car, the film absorbs a wide range of damages. These include
- Rock scratches
- Winter Salt
- UV Rays
The paint protection film is essentially a shield for your car.
2. Preserves Your Car’s Paint
As mentioned on the list, a paint protection film preserves your car’s paint job. Every day your car is hit with UV Rays that slowly wither away the paint on your car. Clear bras absorb those harmful rays that would be otherwise be causing discoloration in your car.
3. Enhances the Appearance of Your Car
Not only does protection film protect your car’s paint job, but it also enhances the look of your car. Paint protection film adds a polished and sleek-look combined with a high-gloss finish that will make your car look better than when it was on the lot.
4. Saves You Money
When you are passionate about your car, you want to keep it in tip-top shape all the time. Unfortunately, the costs for constant upkeep can really add up. Paint protection film, or “clear bras” keep your car from ever needing upkeep in the first place. That extra saved money can be used to further upgrade your car even more.
5. Increases the Value of Your Car
The moment you drive your car off the lot, your car significantly depreciates in value. Unless you are willing to spend money towards upkeep, every scratch and knick on your car decreases your re-sale value.
