wIn the world of car protection, there are many different products and techniques used to protect a car's paintwork from damage and ageing. Two of the most popular options for car protection are the glass coating (also called ceramic coating) and Paint Protection Film (PPF). Although these two products are both used to protect a car's paintwork, there are important differences between them.
The glass coating is a thin layer of special liquid applied to a car's paintwork. This coating is often considered a "permanent" solution for paint protection, as it adheres to the car's surface and can remain in place for a period of 2-5 years. One of the benefits of glass coating is that it protects a car's paintwork from UV rays, dirt, bird droppings, tree sap and other elements that can damage the paintwork. Glass coating provides optimal protection against swirls and scratches from using your car. There are many different brands on the market and they all do pretty much the same thing. Some give longer life and warranty than others. We work with 2 different brands. HALO and Cartec, HALO we use for over car wraps. And Cartec for over car paint. You get a 2-year warranty on HALO and a 3-year warranty on Cartec.
PPF, or Paint Protection Film, is a thin transparent film that is applied to a car's paintwork. Made of polyurethane, this film is designed to protect a car's paintwork from scratches, stone chips, sun damage and other damage. One of the advantages of PPF is that it is easy to remove without damaging the car's paintwork. Another advantage is that the film is virtually invisible.
The PPF film is also available in a matt version so you can keep your original paint but still get a different look. The lifespan and guarantee of PPF is up to 10 years.
Both products have their own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to consider your car's specific protection needs before making a choice. For more information or questions feel free to message us via Whatsapp, phone or email.
