Advantages of Paint Protection Film (PPF)
Keeps your car looking new and shiny
PPF provides a permanent protective coat over your car’s paint, which helps you in keeping your car’s look new and shiny for a lot longer. Paint protection prevents your car’s paint from fading and gives it a polished glossy appearance at all times.
Retains your car’s resale value
Used car buyers put great emphasis on the appearance of the vehicle. Even if your car is mechanically sound, a poor appearance can significantly lower the resale value. Paint protection is important to retain your car’s resale value as it protects your exterior from environmental and superficial damage.
Makes car cleaning easier
PPF repels dust, mud, and road grime so your car’s exterior will not have a build-up problem. This makes the cleaning job a lot easier because often you can simply use a soft cloth to clean your car instead of using water every tim
Saves money on repairs
Prevention is the best practice when it comes to keeping your car’s appearance like-new. PPF helps protect your car’s exterior better than traditional car wax or sealants so you don’t have to spend money frequently on damage repair.
Invisible protection for your car
Adding auto window tinting can make a car up to 60% cooler during the summertime than vehicles without window tinting, helping to increase the car’s gas mileage.
Provides scratch and chemical protection
Window tint affords a clear view to the outside. Depending on the privacy desired, you can increase privacy by selecting tint that prevents others from looking in during the daytime.
Repels environmental damage
Tint also helps to hold glass together in the event of window breakage, whether from an accident or an attempted break-in.

Advantages of Ceramic Coatings
The Best Car Paint Protection
Ceramic Paint Coating is a nano-coating providing a strong, protective surface to the car’s body. This coating can block all manner of foreign matter and prevent them from causing damage to the vehicle. On any given day, a car has to endure a variety of attacks to its body, from accidental scratches to mud, dirt, and other contaminants that are an inescapable part of the road. The nano-coating ensures the original paint of the car is encased in a protective layer capable of withstanding a great deal of damage without showing any ill-effects on the body of the vehicle.
Ceramic Coatings Last Longer
A ceramic paint coating goes much further than an ordinary paint job for protecting the surface of the vehicle. The new coating is fused to the surface of the automobile. It cannot be dislodged by vibrations or external forces. Unlike traditional vehicle coatings, such as wax, wear off over time when exposed to the weather, acidic components of the atmosphere, and bird droppings, nano-coatings last for years.
Car Stays Cleaner
The more pitted a surface, the easier it is for dirt to find tiny pockets to sink into it. As the name suggests, nano-coating works at the molecular level to ensure that the coating provided is extremely smooth and even. This smooth and even layer of protection means that even when the dirt comes in contact with the vehicle, it finds no place to stick to, and simply rolls off the surface. Because of the property of ceramic coatings, most of the contaminants encountered on the road will be unable to stick to the surface of the car. They will fall away, leaving the surface in its initial pristine state.
Eliminates the Need for Car Wax
Getting a car waxed was originally the equivalent of getting a special coating for your car to protect its surface. The problem, of course, is the wax sealant provides less protection, and eventually wears off, which means a fresh coat needs to be reapplied several times a year. On the other hand, a single application of a ceramic coating ensures that you never need another wax job – ever!
It may seem at first glance that having a ceramic coating installed is cost-prohibitive but take another look. Since wax lasts only 1 to 3 months, it needs to be reapplied at least quarterly. You’ll spend around $200 four times a year for a good wash and wax. That’s $800 per year. Over 5 years you would spend $4,000 for quarterly waxing. Since a professional ceramic coating is essentially permanent if maintained properly, it would require a single application over the average lifetime of vehicle ownership. If you never have to wax your car again, you would save money.
