What is the Best Paint Protection for A New Car?

Lambency Detailing

When you buy a new car, the first few things that come to mind would be how you can protect and maintain your new car paint for the years to come so that you don’t have to send it to the workshop for a repaint.

That being said, cars are destined to pick up stone chips, scratches, and other marks on the paintwork as you drive it around the island. This may seem like a harsh fact but it’s inevitable.

Depending on your car dealer, some may offer a new car paint protection package so that you don’t have to search high and low on the island. But you ought to know that this optional treatment is only offered if you’re buying a new car.

In this article, we discuss how different types of paint protection is applied to new cars along with the benefits of opting for car paint protection at Lambency Detailing.

New Car Paint Protection: Application Guide

Given that there are many different types of car paint protection out there, the most recommended ones are automotive waxes, synthetic paint sealants, Paint Protection Film (PPF) and ceramic coating.

Automotive wax

Car wax is by far the simplest and most affordable option for many new car owners as it keeps the car looking shiny at a lower cost. However, it quickens the damage on the car paint as paraffin – the main ingredient in most car waxing products – is greatly affected by our hot and humid weather.

On top of that, the oily nature of car wax can attract dust particles to stick onto your paintwork. Thus, when you wash your car, these dust particles get swirled around, leaving swirl marks on your car’s paintwork. Although your car may look shiny with a fresh coat of wax, the use of electrical buffers to polish your car can also damage your car paint.

Also, when it comes to applying car wax, multiple applications are needed to maintain the shine on your car. Because once the wax wears off after several months, your car will no longer be shiny and the car paint will appear dull.

Synthetic paint sealants

On the contrary, synthetic paint sealants offer a higher level of paint protection for your new car as they can last from 6 to 10 months. This is because synthetic paint sealants are made from man-made chemicals while car waxes are made from organic compounds.

This car paint protection option can also include other base compounds like polymer and Teflon to increase the paint protection level against corrosive contaminants like bird droppings.

When synthetic paint sealants are applied to properly prepped and clean car paint, your car will have a shiny or glass-like appearance, which helps to prevent road grime from sticking onto your car paint.

Paint Protection Film (PPF)

Compared to the previous two car paint protection, PPF is one of the most expensive car paint protection available on the island. This is because the film can last up to 10 years under proper maintenance. It’s almost like wrapping your car with a clear film except you’ll be using military-grade film.

While it offers superior protection against acidic contaminants and lowers your car paint’s oxidation rate, PPF is often shunned because of its tendency to discolour and turn yellow, it can reduce the shine of your new car paint and after a period of time dirt contamination on film, edges may occur. They may also crack upon pressure against impacts from rocks and other debris. Therefore, you shouldn’t try to DIY this as an untrained application can damage the body of your new car. If a section of the film is damaged, you will need to completely replace the entire film.

Ceramic Coating

Deemed the undisputed leader among various types of car paint protection, ceramic coating offers superior resistance against heat, abrasion, chemicals, water, and impact. This is thanks to its silica base which is derived from quartz crystals and sand.

When ceramic coating is applied to your car’s paintwork, the inorganic compounds will bond with your car paint to form a crystal-clear shell, which becomes a semi-permanent paint sealant that lasts longer than the above car paint protection.

In addition, it can create a permanent hydrophobic surface on your car, making it easier for you to wash your car and at the same time, difficult for dirt, mud, and grime to stick onto your car paint.

Now that you’ve learnt about the different types of car paint protection, it’s time to consider the factors below when you get a new car paint protection.
