All you need to know about paint protection films for cars and how to maintain them

Have you decided to invest long-term in your cars? Having even a minor scratch can make your car look worn out. This is where paint protection films come into the picture. Paint protection films are made from urethane films. The paint is applied to the top layer of the cars. The paint is either transparent or even coloured. The lamination can repair itself in case of scratches. Putting a good quality paint protection will last up to 10 years. Paint protection in Gold Coast provides the best kind of layers for your cars. You can choose the same based on the budget you have. The protection helps in protecting paint for a long time.

  1. Washing of the vehicles regularly

Many people think that having a ceramic coating stops cars from being washed regularly. But that is not the case. You must wash your car even if it has a coating on it. You must wash the exteriors to give a polished look to the cars.

  1. Don’t wash your cars in direct sunlight

You should not wash your car in direct sunlight with the paint protection on. The protection might evaporate leaving only the residue behind. Also, it exhilarates the chemical wash in cars. This in turn leads to reducing the effectiveness of the protection layers.

  1. Don’t give the vehicle to air dry.

There are so many ways to dry your car. Don’t air-dry the vehicles. It is not good for the film protection on the cars. Use either a waffle weave towel or even an air blower. You can do whatever but don’t go for air dry. If you go for it, then there will be water spots.

  1. Don’t select automated car wash

When you select automated car wash, there will be car swirls left as marks. Also, there can be deep scratches on the cars making them look bad. If there is a chemical failure, it will lead to chemical stains on the skin. 

  1. Using the two-bucket method

The two bucket method is very popular with car wash Gold Coast. In this process, you will need two buckets. One will have the car soap and the other will have water to rinse the same. The idea behind it is very simple. 

Before going for deep cleaning, take the soap solution and wash the entire car. It will reduce debris forming on the cars. After washing the panels, rinse the mitt with water. You can dip the mitt in the soap solution prepared. 

After applying for paint protection, don’t wash your cars for at least 7 days. This will fully curate the ceramic coating on the cars. PPF helps in protecting cars from all minor scratches. It is a worthwhile investment to make in cars. But be sure that you choose branded film protection. Or else, it will not be long-lasting.


Conclusion

Film Protection on Cars is very popular, and you should ask a professional to do so. Many specialists also use vinyl wrappers for excellent results.
