Debunking 5 Paint Protection Systems Myths

Debunking 5 Paint Protection Systems Myths

Lambency Detailing

When it comes to protecting your car’s paintwork, there are several paint protection systems available in Singapore, such as natural and synthetic waxes, ceramic coating, and paint protection films (PPF).

First, some might be wondering what is paint protection? Paint protection is a layer of protection for your car’s paintwork. It functions as a “shell,” preserving the “new car look” for a longer time.

But it goes further than that. Maintaining a car’s resale value is another benefit of paint protection. But how does it contribute to maintaining your car’s paintwork’s luster? Even something as basic as driving might harm your car’s paint job.

The paintwork of your car can be damaged by a variety of things, including bird droppings and stones thrown up into the bodywork. This layer of paint protection can prevent the bird droppings from eating into your paintwork and those small stones from chipping your paint away.

With advanced technology, there are plenty of myths surrounding in paint protection systems. We’re here to debunk them.

Myth 1: It Is Difficult To Install

Unlike natural and synthetic waxes, which require less finesse to apply, paint protection systems such as ceramic coating require professional skills and high levels of patience to install. On top of that, it requires precision, as it can affect the quality of the installation.

The only time you’d think that paint protection systems are difficult to install is when you’re doing it yourself. We don’t recommend going down that path because you may spend too much time and effort on one section of your vehicle instead of the entire car.

Instead of doing it by yourself, auto-detailing workshops like Lambency Detailing can help you with the installation. You get to save time and effort on other important matters.

Myth 2: It Will Crack On Exposure To The Sun

This myth would be valid for the older versions of paint protection systems like paint protection films. But, due to technological advancements, companies that produce paint protection systems no longer use PVC as one of their materials. Instead, they use high quality materials that are made to last.

Ceramic coating, which has a silica base ingredient, provides exceptional resistance to heat, abrasion, chemicals, water, and impact. When the chemicals are put to your car’s paint, they will combine with the paint to form a hydrophobic, crystal-clear shell. It eventually develops into a semi-permanent paint sealant that outlasts PPF.

On the external surfaces of the car, it can also permanently produce a hydrophobic surface that makes washing it simple.

Myth 3: It Might Damage Your Car

Contrary to this myth, the primary purpose of paint protection system is to protect a car’s finish, aka the paintwork, and not cause further damage to it. While some paint protection systems such as paint protection film installation requires adhesives, they are removable without causing any damage to your car’s paintwork.

Of course, you have to seek professionals to professionally removed, just as when you had them professionally installed. If the paint protection systems are not removed correctly, it can damage your car’s paint.

Myth 4: It Can’t Be Waxed

Many car owners believe that once you have your car paint protection, sending their cars for waxing may ruin the paintwork. This isn’t true because waxes can help to reinforce the paint protection system.

This myth exists because some people confuse paint protection systems with vinyl wraps, allowing some car owners to make changes to their car aesthetic. Plus, vinyl wraps are thinner and more delicate. So, waxing a vinyl-wrapped car will destroy it.

However, as we mentioned earlier, paint protection systems are different. In fact, waxing helps to add another layer of protection to your car’s paintwork. You only need to consult a trusted auto-detailing workshop to learn more.

Myth 5: All Paint Protection Systems Are The Same

This is essentially false because there are so many paint protection systems on the market. The quality of the Paint Protection varies depending on the manufacturers, which means you can have similar-looking paint protection systems but of different quality.

For instance, cheaper paint protection films are produced using low-quality materials, which may cost you the durability and longevity you’d expect with high-quality paint protection systems such as ceramic coating. So, no two paint protection systems are the same.
