Paint Protection System for Your Car: How the Professionals Do It

Lambency Detailing

Paint protection systems for cars have been around for a while and it’s a common option offered by car dealers to new car owners. The system generally helps to protect your car’s paint against damage from the likes of stone chips, tree sap, bird droppings, and fading.

While the paint protection system doesn’t protect your car against heavier damage like parking scuffs and dents, it works to keep your car’s paint looking as new as it first came out of the showroom and as good as possible over time.

That said, there are several types of paint protection systems for cars such as automotive waxes, synthetic paint sealants, paint protection film, and ceramic coating. All of which offer a varying degree of paint protection and benefits.

Before we dive deeper into why your car needs paint protection and the stages of car paint protection by professionals, let’s look at two types of paint protection systems – ceramic coating and paint protection film.

Ceramic coating

Considered the ideal paint protection system for various car components, the ceramic coating offers superior heat, abrasion, chemical, water, and impact resistance. When the coating is cured atop your car’s paintwork, it forms a crystal-clear shell and becomes a semi-permanent sealant that lasts longer than car wax and paint sealants.

In addition, it creates a permanent hydrophobic surface, which makes it more difficult for dirt, mud, and grime to bond with your car’s paint. This also means that when the time comes for a wash, your car will be easier to clean.

Paint protection film

Widely known as PPF, this paint protection system comes in the form of thickened film that is applied to your car’s surface. It’s also one of the most expensive paint protection systems available for cars because the film can last up to 10 years when it’s properly maintained.

Despite offering superior protection against contaminants and minimises the paint’s oxidation rate, this film can reduce the shine of your car’s paintwork. If one section of the film is damaged, you will need to get it completely replaced.

Why Your Car Needs Paint Protection System? 

Regardless of whether you’re using your car for work or leisure purposes, there are several reasons your car needs a paint protection system. After all, you’ve already spent a fortune on getting the car so it’s only right that you go all out to protect and preserve your car’s paintwork. The following are a few aspects to consider whether your car needs paint protection.

#1 You park your car outside overnight

If you often park your car outside overnight, near trees or overhead cables where birds roost, you should definitely get paint protection for your car. That’s because the acid content in bird droppings can corrode your car’s paintwork and long-term oxidation can further damage your car’s paint job.

#2 You drive your car everywhere

Having a car in Singapore is probably the most convenient because you get to save time by getting from one place to another in the shortest time possible. However, driving your car to various environments can damage your car’s paintwork, especially if you frequent construction sites as stone chips can cause some scratches on your car.

Ultimately, it depends on how you use your car because one thing’s for sure, by giving your car paint the protection it needs, you will be able to protect it against various damages and maintain the gleam for a long time.

 Stages of Car Paint Protection by Professionals 

When it comes to providing paint protection for your car, you have two options which are to DIY (Do-It-Yourself) with store-bought car waxes or engage the professionals for ceramic coating. Besides, getting experts like Lambency Detailing to do the job will be a whole lot easier than doing it yourself.

You see, ceramic coatings are highly refined products that have been stringently lab-tested and proven to provide paint protection on car surfaces. This means they must be applied by highly skilled, certified auto-detailers in controlled environments using expensive equipment, which translates to high costs.

However, if you consider the amount of effort and time taken for experts to apply the ceramic coating on your car to give your car the perfect shine, it will all be worth it at the end of the day.

Here’s a look into the steps involved in ceramic coating at Lambency Detailing:

1. Car prep work – Our auto detailers will prep your car by thoroughly washing every part of your car. This includes scrubbing the surfaces with a clay bar to remove contaminants and microfibre polishing to remove residues.

2. Paint correction – After we prep your car, we will employ 1 stage of paint correction to reduce or remove surface imperfections on the topmost layer of your car’s paintwork.

3. Paint preparation – Once we correct the imperfections, we will use a special solvent compound to effectively remove grease and oil films from the surface of your car’s paintwork. This prepares the paintwork for the application of long-lasting paint sealant.

4. Basecoat coating – After preparing your car’s paintwork, we will apply 1 layer of SONAX Basecoat EVO to increase chemical resistance, and improve hydrophobia and UV resistance of your car’s paint. This coating will also protect your car’s paintwork against harmful biological contaminants.

5. Gloss coat coating – Once the first layer of your car’s ceramic coating is done, we will apply 2 layers of SONAX Glosscoat EVO to provide optical perfection with impressive colour intensity and high-gloss paintwork of your car’s paint job.

Each of these steps requires plenty of attention to detail. Therefore, you should let the professionals apply a ceramic coating on your car’s paintwork instead of doing it yourself to ensure flawless work and an improved gleam of your car.
