Fortunately, Levant Auto Care as solutions to these issues that will keep your paint looking new and damage-free for years after you drive it home.
Types of car paint damages.
The beauty of these paint protection films (PPF) is that they protect against a wide variety of common types of damage. Whether you’re driving through trails in the desert or a well-kept city road, PPF can keep damaging agents away from your paint job. Some of the materials it protects your vehicle from include the following.
Salt & Sand
Salt is a corrosive material that can eat through the paint and into the metal, causing it to flake off and possibly form rust. If left long enough, it could create a hole in the metal. Sand can similarly cause damage, and if you drive in places prone to sandstorms or near beaches, it could easily wreak havoc on your entire vehicle.
Road trips are fun, but they can quickly turn bad when you’re driving on anything besides the best-laid roads. Rocks will fly in all directions, and your car could sustain damage.
Ultraviolet (UV) Damage
Don’t let the sun take its toll on your car. With a little protection, you can keep the paint looking new and shiny. Apply a coat of Paint Protection Film and you’ll never have to worry about cracking or fading again.
Environmental fallout typically refers to substances like acid rain, brake, and rail dust and pollen. Acid rain can include both wet and dry acidic pollutants and is really harmful to your car.
Bug remains work similarly. Decaying insects also contain chemicals that can damage the coat of paint on a car.
Bird droppings are more damaging than they look, and they can affect your car’s paint in many ways.
How does PPF Protect My Car?
When you add a clear protection film on your car, you create a protective barrier that keeps the damage away from the paint. That thick layer of polyurethane absorbs the damage. Here’s the best part, though — the self-healing paint protection film won’t show minor damage. Scratches disappear and chips fill in. The unique formulation of 3M™ Pro Series paint protection films allows them to adjust to these incidents.
Another reason people turn to these films is that they allow you to show off the natural beauty of your car’s original paint job. You don’t need to change it to add protection, and the film is crystal clear to let the original color shine through — no cloudy colors or tints in sight. You can even wax and wash your car like normal. The idea of these films is to be unnoticeable. They add protection without altering the look of your car.
