Are you the proud owner of a brand new car in San Antonio? Congratulations but now that you have invested in your dream car, it's time to protect it from the elements and everyday wear and tear! As a San Antonio resident it's common knowledge that this city is full of construction projects and new renovations being done all over, which means the roads are harsh and there's debris everywhere. Once your vehicle's paint is chipped or scratched, a paint correction can be done to fix some of the minor scratches but it's not possible to buff out everything. That's where Paint Protection Film (PPF) comes in. Prevention is the best course of action to take in order to assure your vehicle stays in the best shape once you purchase it. Now you may be asking "what is ppf", or perhaps wondering why you need ppf. In this blog we will explain what ppf is as well of why you need ppf to protection your car.
PPF is a clear, thin, and virtually invisible film that is applied to the painted surfaces of your car to protect it from scratches, chips, and other types of damage. A common brand used for ppf is xpel, but at Lonestar Auto Boutique we use Suntek Reaction because of its advanced self healing and reacting qualities. Here are just a few of the many benefits of having PPF applied to your new car:
Protection: Your car is exposed to all sorts of hazards on the road, from rocks and debris kicked up by other vehicles to rain, snow, and ice. PPF protects your car's paint from these hazards, keeping your car looking brand new for years to come.
Resale Value: Keeping your car in great condition is essential if you want to get the best possible resale value when you decide to sell it. PPF helps to maintain the value of your car by protecting the paint from damage and keeping it looking like new.
Easy Maintenance: PPF is incredibly easy to care for. Unlike traditional paint protection methods, PPF can be easily cleaned and waxed without having to worry about damaging the underlying paint. This makes maintaining your car's appearance a breeze.
Customization: PPF is available in a variety of finishes, from matte to high-gloss, giving you the opportunity to add a unique and custom look to your car.
Once you have ppf installed on your vehicle it is important to make sure you maintain it and keep up with it the right way. We recommend a few steps to care for the paint protection film best. To care for your car's PPF (paint protection film):
Wash regularly with a mild soap.
Avoid using abrasive materials.
Dry the film thoroughly after washing.
Park in a shaded area to reduce sun exposure.
Avoid gasoline, oil, and other chemicals.
Keep the film clean of debris and contaminants.
