A car owner who is genuinely concerned about the state of their vehicle's paintwork will certainly seek additional methods of paint protection besides giving their vehicle a wash. Then paint protection film and ceramic coating will certainly enter his or her mind.

UPPF will give you some useful advice to help you make your decision.

What is paint protection film?

Paint protection film is a clear polyurethane material that can be applied to the paintwork of a car. It protects and preserves the car's paintwork, reducing its risk of damage caused by external factors such as chips and scratches, oxidation and swirl marks.

Paint protection films will protect the surface of your car from scratches and weather as they are made from materials that can be restored to their original state. In the long term, these protective films will also protect your car's paintwork from fading.

What is a Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is installed on the surface area of your car. Once the liquid polymer has been applied to the surface of your vehicle, it forms a chemical bond with the exterior paintwork of your vehicle, resulting in a hydrophobic surface. Due to the hydrophobic nature of the ceramic coating, it will be very difficult for contaminants to penetrate the exterior surface of your vehicle.

Selection between PPF and Ceramic Coating

Both of these products give you the added benefit of making your car's paintwork look like new by protecting it. They can also reduce damage from exposure to UV rays, as well as acidic pollutants.

Now you may be wondering which product is best for your vehicle in the long term? Both have their own unique attributes that can save you a lot of money in the future. They each have their own strengths and weaknesses that cannot be ignored.

So here is a solution where both would be the perfect dynamic duo for your car. Think about it, both act as an invisible force field for your car's paint job.

Consider that the paint protection film is thicker compared to ceramic coatings. Its chemical composition allows it to repair itself, which means that it can be restored to its original form. This means that it can take on small scratches, swirl marks and even damage from hard water spots without being permanently damaged.

On the other hand, the ceramic coating keeps contaminants away from your paintwork, making your car easier to clean. So, as a sensible car owner, it is not a question of choosing between option A or B, but of finding the advantages of both options and knowing where to use them.

So, to answer the question. Is car paintwork protection worth the money? Definitely yes. Your car will thank you for it.
