Why Is Paint Protection Film Important for Your Vehicle?

Protecting the paint is one of the top priorities for many car owners. Thankfully, there are several good ways to go about doing so. Arguably the best method, though, is applying a paint protection film (PPF). As the name suggests, a PPF is a urethane film that protects from all sorts of damage. Continue reading to learn a few benefits of adding a PPF:

  • Enhanced finish: PPF goes above and beyond protecting against dirt and scratches—it makes your car look better. PPF can come in a high-gloss or matte finish, ensuring your car looks brand new, even if it’s a well over a decade old.
  • Superior protection: Out of all the products on the market, PPF provides the best protection for your car. It guards against everything from sunlight damage to scratches caused by kicked-up road debris and even rust. Additionally, a PPF can last up to a decade before it needs to be replaced.
  • Instantly heal minor scratches: Paint scratches might not be noticeable at first, but if they’re left unattended, the paint can slowly start to chip away. Instead of touching up the paint, apply a PPF that fixes the scratch while protecting the paint job for years to come.
  • High temperature resistance: Arizona’s hot and sunny days can do a lot more damage to your vehicle than you might think. UV rays wear away paint and can eventually cause headlights to fog up. The importance of PPF is that it guards against UV rays, so you can enjoy the sunshine without worrying about your vehicle.

Should you install paint protection film yourself?

It is theoretically possible to install a PPF on your own, but we don’t recommend it. These are a few reasons to let a pro tackle the task:

  • Time-consuming process: The first reason to bring your car to a pro is that installing a PPF can take a while. Without the right training or tools, you could spend hours trying to get the film on your car and still not be finished with the job. Our pros at Crystal Clear Detail can have the job done much more efficiently, so you can get back out on the road.
  • Poor results: Imagine wasting your whole weekend only to realize your PPF doesn’t look good. That can happen if you attempt application by yourself. But when you let a professional handle it, you can trust that your car will look incredible and stay protected for the foreseeable future.
  • Waste of money: DIY PPF application can save you quite a bit of money, but what’s the point of wasting your time, energy and money on something that won’t look very good? Instead of trying it yourself, pay a professional to give you the best and longest-lasting protection.
