Lloydminster Paint Protection
Safeguarding the vehicle’s finish and preserving its resale value is top of mind for our customers.
You Have Choices
At the end of the day, there are only two preferred options for protecting paint finishes: paint protection film and ceramic coatings.
If you are wondering what the differences are between the two, PDR Canada in Lloydminster can help you sort it out. We have actually prepared a brief guide about automotive paint protection, which can help you keep your vehicle looking showroom new.
Paint Protection Film (PPF)
PPF is a thin urethane film that bonds to your vehicle’s finish. It offers an outstanding defensive layer ideal for protection against:
- Chips & nicks
- Fading because of UV light exposure
What makes protection film so popular is that you can purchase a paint protection film bundle and apply it yourself. These bundles can vary from fairly easy to extremely difficult to apply, so do your research before deciding to go do-it-yourself, or talk with a trained professional from PDR Canada.
The most popular films in Lloydminster include:
- XPEL Ultimate
- 3M Pro
- 3M Paint Protection Film
If you decide on a ceramic coating, you can’t go wrong with Opti-Coat Pro+.
Paint Protection Film vs. Ceramic Coating
Paint protection films are well-suited to protect your paint from physical damage, specifically in vulnerable locations like your front bumper and hood, that constantly ward off stones and other roadway debris.
PPF also has a unique ability to heal itself from small nicks. It can actually repair itself.
In contrast, a ceramic coating will offer less protection against chips and scratches because it is a much thinner layer. Ceramic coatings have no self-healing properties. However, ceramic coatings offer protection on another level. For example, they protect your vehicle’s paint from harmful UV rays that are the underlying cause for fading paint. Ceramic coatings provide superior protection to chemical attacks, which include tree sap, bird droppings, acidic rain, air pollutants, and freeze/thaw cycles.
Which One Should You Choose?
Installation is straightforward. First, our skilled technicians install PPF film to your vehicle’s most vulnerable areas, such as the hood, fenders, rear-wheel arch, front bumper, and rocker panels. Covering these with PPF ensures that your vehicle’s finish is well protected from physical damage.
Then, our highly trained technicians apply the specially formulated ceramic coating to your entire vehicle, including those areas of the vehicle that received the PPF installation.
This blended approach, PPF and ceramic coating, not only enhances your vehicle’s appearance, it also provides the best possible protection available for your vehicle’s finish.
