Which Car Paint Protection is Best for Your Car?

Lambency Detailing

Finding the best car paint protection for your car is like finding a needle in a haystack. Not literally, but with the variety of paint protection systems in Singapore, you may feel overwhelmed and torn between the various options.

Besides, your car is likely one of your most expensive things. It is also one of the most vulnerable to damage and scratches when you drive it around the island, so you take extra precautions every time while driving.

If you’re the type who cares deeply about your car, from giving it a weekly wash to regular detailing, a suitable car paint protection system is all you need to maintain that showroom gleam.

This article discusses how you should prep your car for different types of car paint protection options and which is the best paint protection for your new vehicle!

How to Prep for Car Paint Protection System?

If you have a new car, prepping it for a car paint protection system will require minimal effort, as auto-detailers will usually recommend a car wash followed by polishing.

But, if your car is older than a year, you will likely notice visible paint issues such as scratches or chips on your car paintwork. In that case, it’s best to have the professional detailers at Lambency Detailing fix it for you.

Depending on the type of paint issues that your car is facing, the prep work can vary. For instance, if you notice some swirl marks on the surface of your car’s paintwork, they can be easily removed with polishing.

Meanwhile, the prep work for your car’s paintwork will be more intense for stains from contaminants like tree sap or bird droppings. This is especially if the damage has set into the paint, possibly requiring you to invest in a new paint job.

If your car is a few years old, you may notice some oxidation in areas where the paintwork is chipped or scratched. This, coupled with constant exposure to UV rays and other natural elements, can quicken the process. But, the damage can be repaired with paint correction.

Once the imperfections are taken care of, the auto-detailing workshop will use a special solvent compound to prepare your car’s paintwork for the application of a long-lasting paint protection system.

What’s the Best Paint Protection System for Your Car?

There are many different types of car paint protection available to you in Singapore. The best option will depend on what you want to protect your car’s paint from. This includes automotive waxes, synthetic paint sealants, Paint Protection Film (PPF), and ceramic coating.

1. Automotive Waxes

Automotive wax is the simplest and most affordable car paint protection option for new car owners like you, as it keeps the car looking shiny at a lower cost. But, over time, the oily nature of car wax can attract dust particles to stick onto your car’s paintwork.

Once the car wax wears off, your car’s paintwork will lose its sparkle, causing the paint to appear dull. So, multiple applications may be required to maintain the shine of your vehicle. You should only opt for automotive wax if you can commit to numerous car waxing sessions.

2. Synthetic Paint Sealants

Compared to automotive waxes, synthetic paint sealants offer better paint protection for your car as they can last from 6-10 months. This is because paint sealants are made from artificial chemicals, which may include other base compounds like polymer and Teflon.

Once the paint sealant is applied to your car’s paintwork, you will notice that your car has a shiny appearance, which helps to prevent grime from sticking onto your car’s paintwork.

3. Paint Protection Film (PPF)

One of the more expensive paint protection systems, Paint Protection Films, can last up to 10 years with proper car exterior maintenance. The process of this car paint protection system is almost like wrapping your car with a transparent film, except that it’s military-grade film.

Even though the film offers superior protection against natural contaminants, it can reduce the shine of your car’s paintwork over time. You may be tempted to apply the film on your own to save cost, but this can result in a poor application if you’re not trained.

4. Ceramic Coating

Among the car paint protection options available here, the ceramic coating offers superior resistance against heat, abrasion, chemicals, water, and impact, thanks to its silica base compound.

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

The best car paint protection for your vehicle is one that fits your preference, budget, and lifestyle.
