Why Use Car Paint Protection Film?

Vehicles are often out in extreme weather conditions such as rain, ice, hail, wind, and the hot sun. Some of this exposure can lead to damage of the paint job, including rust. A good paint job on a vehicle will protect its surface from the negative effects of these elements. However, adding paint protection film can further enhance this protection, ensuring the appearance of your vehicle looks new for a longer period. At Interwest Automotive, we offer the 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film Pro Series that gives your vehicle a protected finish that lasts a long time.

The benefits of using car paint protection film on your vehicle include:

1. Protection for the Paint Job

The unique chemical makeup of paint protection film gives it effective resistance against UV radiation, providing important protection for the paint job on your vehicle. These films also provide protection against the effects of acid rain.

2. Reduced Need for Car Washing

Most vehicle protection films, including 3M Clear Paint Protection Film, do a great job of resisting dust, dirt, and grime that become attached to vehicles as they travel on the road. Even if some of the dirt attaches to the protection film, it is easy to wipe away without requiring a full car wash.

3. Scratch Protection

Car washes, loose branches, and various road debris can easily scratch a vehicle’s painted surface. Paint protection film with self-healing capabilities or clear bras provide optimum protection, eliminating minor scratches. This self-healing property is activated by the heat from the sun or the application of warm water to the surface. Paint protection film helps preserve the luster of your vehicle and can be applied to various vehicle elements, including door handles, mirrors, door edges, and headlights.

4. Maintains Resale Value

Since paint protection film protects the paint on your vehicle from scratches and other environmental damage, it effectively preserves the vehicle’s resale value.

5. Saves Money Over Time

Once you have paint protection film installed, you may never have to redo your vehicle’s paint job. Although paint protection film requires an upfront investment, it can save you a significant amount of money over time, including the cost of repairing and repainting areas affected by door ding or rock chip scratches.
