Paint Protection Film Vs. Ceramic Coating
When it comes to protecting the paint on your vehicle, two popular options are paint protection film (PPF) and ceramic coating. Both have their own unique benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to understand the differences before deciding.
Paint protection film, also known as clear bra, is a thin, clear urethane film that is applied to the surface of the vehicle. It is designed to protect the paint from minor scratches, chips, and other types of damage caused by road debris and other environmental factors. PPF is a great option for those who want a durable, long-lasting solution for protecting their paint. It also adds value to the vehicle after application due to it keeping the vehicle in such great condition. The cost of paint protection film will vary depending on size and coverage desired.
On the other hand, ceramic coating is a liquid product that is applied to the surface of the vehicle and then cured using a special curing lamp. Once cured, the coating forms a hard, protective barrier on the surface of the paint. Ceramic coatings are designed to provide protection against oxidation, minor swirl marks, and other types of damage, as well as to enhance the shine and gloss of the paint. The coating is also hydrophobic which means that it repels water and dirt, making the cleaning process much easier.
