Protecting Your Vehicle with Paint Protection Film
This auto upgrade helps to maintain the value of your vehicle.
Other than purchasing a home, buying a vehicle has always been considered one of the biggest investments people make during their lives.
Unfortunately, that’s becoming increasingly true whether you are buying a new vehicle or a used one.
With automotive part shortages depleting new vehicle inventories of many major brands, many dealerships are resorting to buying used cars and trucks.
This drives prices up in the pre-owned market.
As a result, more owners hoping to extend the value of their vehicle purchase are investing in one of the many protective coatings available on the automotive market.
From ceramic waxes to oil sprays, there are a wide variety of options that provide varying degrees and different types of protection. However, one product is emerging as the best possible protection whether you’re driving a used Toyota or a new Ferrari.
Paint protection film is one of the best ways to keep your car looking as new as possible while preventing wear and tear that could lead to costly repairs.
It’s no longer just for sports cars or luxury vehicles. Whether your car costs $5,000 or $250,000, painted metal surfaces, will eventually start to wear out and rust. That repair will cost you money.
What separates paint protection film (PPF) from other coatings like ceramic, graphene, or wax? PPF outperforms all other products because of the actual thickness of the protection.
Standard vehicle paint consists of a primer, a base coat colour, and then a clear coat on top. The clear coat is the dealer’s version of protecting the paint.
The combination of all three on the average vehicle is about 120 microns thick. In comparison, a sheet of paper is about 100 microns thick. The product TintCrew uses is about eight millimeters thick, which translates to about 200 microns.
By installing paint protection film, you almost triple the strength of protection you have on your vehicle.
PPF provides an extra physical layer between your vehicle’s paint, lights, the chrome and the external surfaces as well as all the elements that can harm or damage your painted surfaces. For example, rocks, dirt, sand, salt, bugs, oils, asphalts, tree sap, and other toxic fluids.
The film is virtually invisible and doesn’t wear off like competitive products, offering lasting protection and preserving the value of your automotive investment.
Installing PPF on a vehicle is an additional expense, whether you purchase a full wrap, or one of the smaller hood and fender kits. Both options offer additional protection to specific high-risk areas. However, it’s an investment that adds significant resale value to any vehicle.
The dollar amount you spend on PFF should, in theory, get you approximately 70 to 80 percent back on average, based on the preservation of the value of that vehicle whether you are reselling it, giving it to a family member at some point down the road, or doing a trade-in at a dealership.
Prices for installation of PPF vary depending on the style of your vehicle and the level of protection you wish to purchase.
