In short, PPF provides a physical layer against potential damage and contamination, while ceramic coating forms a hydrophobic, chemical layer that guards against water and dirt.
Both solutions do the following:
- Stop chemical marking and etching
- Keeps the car looking newer for longer
- Prevents swirl marks and hard water stains
- Prevent oxidation and fading
PPF provides the following benefits, which you cannot get from ceramic coatings:
- Stops rock chips
- Prevents small scratches
- Self-heals after impacts from stones and debris
Ceramic coating offers a better-than-showroom shine for years to come.
Depending on your vehicle and coverage area, PPF can be more of a financial investment than ceramic coating, so you need to consider the benefits and your own budget.
The good news is that, if you want paint protection for your car in Colorado Springs, you don’t have to choose between the PPF and ceramic coating, if you don’t want to. The two solutions can be applied together. PPF is applied to the areas of the car that are most vulnerable to chips and scratches. These areas include the bumper, hood, fenders, side mirrors, rocker panels and wheel arches. Once the PPF has been applied to these areas, a ceramic coating is applied to the entire painted surface of the car. The coating bonds to both the paint and the PPF, providing an additional layer of protection against stains and chemical etching. It will also help the film last longer by keeping it clean and free from contaminants. Together, the two products can protect your car’s paint in the long term and preserve and enhance your vehicle’s stunning showroom appearance.
