Paint protection film is more popular now than ever before, as prices for vehicles continue going up, owners are wanting to do everything they can to protect and preserve their investment in a new car. Whether you are daily driving your vehicle to work, speeding through the streets late at night, or hauling your family to the grocery store before a fun weekend trip - rocks and road debris will not discriminate. In San Antonio especially construction is a normal thing, with debris and dirt almost unavoidable when driving on roads throughout the city. Due to the amount of construction, country dirt roads and winding hill country, Texas roads make it tough to not chip your paint or find scratches on your vehicle at one point in time or another. The good news is that not only can we help you protect your vehicle from these hazards at Lonestar Tint and Autoboutique, but that you also have more options now than ever before.
What is paint protection film?
Paint protection film, typically abbreviated as PPF, is a film that is applied to the outside of your vehicle, essentially creating a shield to repel objects and prevent scratches and chips. At Lonestar Tint our paint protection is a completely reinvented product that merges the super hydrophobicity of ceramic coating with premium, self-healing paint protection film. This advanced two-in-one construction keeps your finish looking like it rarely sees the road, thanks to impressive protective benefits. Typically this film is clear, making it virtually invisible, adhering to your vehicle keeping its color the same, yet adding an extra shine to your vehicle. Clear bra will not only add an extra shine to your vehicle, but also makes it significantly easier to clean your vehicle, adding a ceramic coat to the vehicle that makes it harder for dirt to stick to your vehicle.
Is paint protection better than a vinyl wrap?
When vehicle owners want to change the look of their vehicle or cover flawed paint the first thing that they typically search is automotive vinyl wraps. At Lonestar Tint we also offer vinyl wraps, yet we educate our customers that a paint protection wrap may be a better fit depending on what exactly they're looking for. We also offer matte paint protection rather than a clear paint protection, creating a beautiful sheen on your ride. The difference between this option and adding a matte vinyl wrap is the level of protection ppf adds compared to a vinyl wrap, making your car look great while being best protected. Vinyl wrap is a great way to give your vehicle a unique look, but due to the property of the vinyl can tear or rip if impacted by an object, whereas paint protection will repel and stay cohesive. If you are in the market for paint protection or a fresh vinyl wrap in San Antonio, give us a call and see which option best fits your needs!
