There are many reasons to maintain your car’s paintwork looking like it just came out of the showroom. One is to preserve its value so you can fetch a reasonable trade-in value in the future.

Besides, you probably spent a lot of money acquiring it, so it only makes sense to maintain your car’s paintwork and shine. Doing so can also help create an excellent social impression when doing business, going to job interviews, or traveling.

That said, maintaining your car’s shine involves many factors, including looking after the paintwork. However, there are many types of car paint, and each requires varying ways of restoring the car’s shine.

If you are looking for a new car paint protection, this article will provide you with all the information you need about car paint protection in Singapore and how to restore your car’s paint to a perfect shine.

Types of Car Paint

Car paint protection is a process by which the surface of a car’s body is coated with a layer of paint that protects it from fading and cracking. It is one of the most expensive parts of a vehicle.

There are many factors that affect how long a car paint lasts, such as the type of car paint used, the quality of the paint, and how well it is applied.

Back in the day, car manufacturers only applied a single layer of car paint to their vehicles, making the car’s paintwork more susceptible to oxidation. Today, car manufacturers use the two-stage paintwork for their vehicles to ensure the paint’s durability.

This involves applying two layers of car paint – a clear coat and a base coat. The clear coat is applied on top of the base coat to protect it from fading or chipping and make it more durable. However, if the car’s paintwork is not properly cared for, it can deteriorate over time.

Why Does Car Paint Go Bad?

Like many man-made items, your car’s paintwork can also go bad when not properly cared for. Of course, when you first get your car, you will take good care of it. But, after several months of using it, you may feel that it is just a car and that you don’t have to put as much effort into maintaining the paintwork and its shiny gleam.

What you need to know is that even without your constant effort, the environment can wreak havoc on your car’s paintwork. If the sun’s UV radiation can harm the human skin, it can affect your car’s paintwork in many ways. Constant exposure to dirt and environmental pollutants can also affect your car’s paintwork.

Every time you park your car under the hot, blazing sun, your car’s paintwork undergoes an adverse chemical reaction. Over time, your car paint will fade without warning, leaving your car looking less appealing than before.

When the oxidation starts, you will notice white spots on your car’s paintwork. This can be challenging to fix if there are more white spots than you can fix. The good news is that you can prevent these from happening with several car paint protection tips below.

How to Restore the Shine of Your Car Paint?

There are many ways to restore the shine of your car paint in Singapore. Here are some tips from us:

1. Wash your car regularly

The first step to restoring the shine on your car paint is to give it a regular wash using suitable car shampoo and washcloth. You will need to remove all the debris and dirt your car routinely collects while on the road.

Make sure to wash your car exterior in stages to ensure you don’t miss any spots. Start with the mirrors, move on to the body, and lastly, the tires. Consider washing your car twice before you start the polishing and waxing work.

2. Apply a good polish

Polishing your car’s paintwork will help remove grease, dirt, scrapes, and scratches that a regular wash can’t remove. So, depending on the type of polish, it contains solvents that can remove any impurity to restore the shine of your paintwork.

Consider polishing your car before waxing it because polishing alone doesn’t work to provide paint protection. If you plan to polish your car at home, apply a large amount on a cloth and polish your vehicle using a circular movement.

3. Wax your car

Once you have polished the car, it is ideal to add a protective layer of wax that adds a shine to your car’s paintwork. Waxing your vehicle can also protect it from UV rays and prevent impurities from damaging the paintwork.

Using a car wax can increase the life span of your car’s paintwork, thus increasing its resale value. If you plan to wax your car, apply a thin, even layer using a sponge or soft cloth. This will ensure an even amount of paint protection.

4. Repair any damaged paintwork

If there is any damage to your car’s paintwork, it is best to repair it beforehand. This is because the paintwork will not shine if it has been damaged. So, if you have a minor scratch that affects only the clear coat, you can repair it with some rubbing compound.

However, if your car’s paintwork requires a major repair, visit a trusted auto-detailing workshop for a better solution.

5. Apply car paint protection

There are several types of car paint protection – automotive waxes, synthetic paint sealants, paint protection film, and ceramic coating. The most common car paint protection in Singapore is synthetic paint sealant.

It offers paint protection for up to 10 months because they’re usually made from synthetic ingredients and polymers. When synthetic paint sealants are applied to properly prepped and clean paintwork, it will restore the car’s shine.
