Lambency Detailing

Like your house paint, your car paint can fade or deteriorate over time, leaving it looking less appealing or attractive than it used to. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to keep it looking shiny and new for a long time.

That said, selecting the right paint protection for your car amid the variety of options can be arduous, considering the benefits and drawbacks each car paint protection offers.

This is why we’ve compiled a list of Singapore’s top four paint protection options to help you make an informed decision. Whether you’re looking for a high-tech ceramic coating or a classic wax job, we’ve got you covered! So, let’s dive in!

Importance of Car Paint Protection

Coating your car with a paint protection system helps to maintain your vehicle’s most noticeable aspect, which is the external paint that contributes to the overall appearance and appeal.

While the term includes various products and processes, a paint protection coating generally refers to a layer of inorganic compound that coats your car’s paintwork. It protects your vehicle from harmful UV and infrared rays while preventing car paint from fading.

Although car paint protection coating helps maintain your car’s original paintwork, note that it’s not damage-proof. Hence, you still need to send your car for regular car grooming services to preserve its external worth and value.

Types of Car Paint Protection

When it comes to protecting your car’s paint, there are many options to choose from. Each type of paint protection offers unique benefits, so it’s crucial to know what you’re getting into before you decide. On that note, let’s explore the types of car paint protection available.

Paint Protection Film

Also known as PPF, this type of car paint protection is one of the most expensive paint protection systems available on the market. Once applied to your car’s paintwork, a Paint Protection Film can last up to 10 years with proper maintenance of your car exterior.

The application process of this paint protection system involves wrapping the military-grade transparent film on your car’s external paintwork. While it offers superior protection against natural contaminants, it can reduce the gleam of your car’s paintwork over time.

That said, you should only get the paint protection film installed by professional detailers, as an untrained application can lead to unwanted damage to your car’s paintwork. If there’s any damage on the film during the application, you will need to replace the entire film.

Ceramic Coating

Unlike paint protection films, ceramic coatings are silica-based, commonly derived from quartz crystals and sand. Their silica base compound offers superior resistance against heat, abrasion, chemicals, water, and impact.

When applied to your car’s paintwork, the compounds will bond with your car’s paintwork to form a crystal-clear hydrophobic shell. Over time, it becomes a semi-permanent paint sealant that lasts longer than Paint Protection Films.

Ceramic coatings, in particular, have been known to offer the best car paint protection in terms of longevity and resistance to scratches. As a result, you get to enjoy many benefits over everyday sealants and waxes.

Automotive Wax

Referred to as hard hydrocarbons at room temperature, automotive waxes are the simplest and cheapest car paint protection system available in Singapore. They are ideal for new car owners, as the waxes can help keep the car shiny.

However, automotive waxes are greatly affected by heat and water, making their lifespan as a car paint protection option relatively short. Over time, the oily nature of automotive waxes can attract many dust particles to stick onto your car paint.

Once the wax wears off, you will find that your car’s paintwork has lost its gleam, decreasing your vehicle’s overall appeal. As a result, you will require multiple wax applications to maintain your car’s external appearance.

Paint Sealant

Compared to Automotive Waxes, Paint Sealants offer a longer-lasting alternative, lasting 6 to 10 months. On that note, paint sealants comprise artificial chemicals, which can include base compounds like polymer and Teflon to increase the paint protection level.

Paint sealants are more durable than automotive waxes, with higher melting points and better chemical resistance. However, they share similar durability levels against UV rays with automotive waxes.

When applied to a clean paint surface that was prepped correctly, the paint sealant can give your car a shiny or glass-like appearance, which helps to reduce road grime from sticking onto the surface.

Recommended Car Paint Protection

Keeping your car’s paint looking new can be daunting, especially if you need help deciding which paint protection system to choose. Fortunately, you can make your decisions based on our elaborations above.

At the same time, you should consider the following factors:

  • Lifestyle
  • Preferences
  • Budget

For instance, if you have to stick to a budget, consider automotive waxes or paint sealants as your car paint protection option. These generally require you to carve out time and some commitment.

On the contrary, if you prefer a one-time application with no limit to your budget, consider ceramic coatings, as they can last longer with optimal maintenance.
