Which One Is Best For Your Car?

Are you the type of person to care deeply about your car’s every detail?

Do minor imperfections to your car’s exterior drive you up the wall?

Do you take extra precautions every time you drive to avoid damaging your car’s paint?

If your answers to these are all yes, then you should have heard of car paint protection and how to preserve your car’s paint!

Today, there are tons of options out there when it comes to car paint protection. While it used to be limited to waxing your car at regular intervals annually, today’s car paint protection technology includes the likes of carnauba waxes, synthetic paint sealants, ceramic or glass coatings and paint protection films.

As these offer their own unique pros and cons, it can be hard to decide on which is suitable for your car.

Well, you’re in luck! In this article, we’ll explore the different types of car paint protection available to you in Singapore and which is the best choice for your car!

Carnauba Wax

First on our list is carnauba wax. As the most widely known method to many for car paint protection, it is widely available in most auto shops and vehicle service centers.

While the technology behind carnauba waxes are considerably older than other car paint protection methods, it is still a highly sought-after way of protecting car paints.

To put it simply, carnauba wax is made from the wax of palm tree leaves. The higher the percentage of carnauba in the wax, the higher quality and pricier the wax will be.

While carnauba wax is great of UV protection, it does not provide comprehensive protection against other pollutants and chemicals. It also has a low melting point – a notable disadvantage in Singapore’s sunny weather. Carnauba wax, however, is still much loved and preferred for their affordability and warm look to their outcome, especially for show cars at exhibitions!

Synthetic Paint Sealants

On the other hand, synthetic paint sealants offer a higher level of car paint protection.

A notable difference between synthetic paint sealants and carnauba waxes is that synthetic sealants are manufactured from man-made chemicals while waxes are made from organic base components.

Because of that, synthetic paint sealants are tailor-made for car paint protection in mind. They can include different base compounds including the likes of polymers and Teflon.

A key advantage of synthetic paint sealants is that they last longer and are more durable than waxes, with higher melting points, resistance to chemicals and a similar level of toughness against UV rays.

In fact, sealants are the up and coming best choice for those looking to protect their car’s paint as they are easy to apply, give a great coating to the car and offers protection bar none!

Ceramic Or Glass Coatings

When it comes to paint protection, an undisputed leader in terms of cutting-edge technology will be ceramic or glass coatings.

These are named because of their chemical base – they’re mainly using a type of ceramic quartz that’s commonly found in glass. As the name suggests, the coating forms a type of finished shell on the surface of your paint.

As well as being simple to apply, maintain and clean, they offer significantly higher resistance to chemicals such as grime, road tar, acids and other common road pollutants. Ceramic coatings also stand strong against high temperatures.

Ceramic coatings in particular have been acknowledged to offer the best protection in terms of longevity and resistance to scratches. They are made of inorganic materials that bond with your paintwork when applied. After it dries on your car’s paintwork, the ceramic coating will harden and become a semi-permanent sealant.

This allows a host of significant benefits over everyday sealants and waxes as they often last considerably longer – think in terms of years instead of months!

Paint Protection Film

Commonly known as PPF, Paint Protection Film comes in the form of a considerably thickened film that is applied onto your car. It is one of the most expensive option among all the other car paint protection available in the market.

The film is resistant to acidic contaminants and corrosion, protects your car’s topcoat against bug splatters, bird droppings, acid rain, mineral deposits and more. The material also helps to lower the rate of oxidation of the paint due to excessive exposure under the sun or UV light.

However, PPF is often shunned because of their tendency to discolour and turn yellow. They may crack upon pressure against impacts from rocks and other debris. Many feedbacked that the PPF film tends to reduce the shine of a vehicle paint and if a section is damaged, it needs to be completely replaced.
