A Guide to Paint Protection Adelaide

The term "paint protection" is one that has generated some bad press over recent times. Complicated terms and conditions aka "the fine print" and outrageous claims that the product can't live up to are just a couple of causes. Paint protection when it comes to a detailing enthusiast on the other hand means just what it says. A product that protects the paint for a certain time frame from things such as oxidation, bird droppings, tar and sap spots. It does not necessarily refer to the paint protection packages sold at car dealerships.

Below are a few points to remember that will help you when making a decision about paint protection.

1. Lifetime Warranty - Even the best technology on the market can't cover you for a lifetime warranty without certain requirements. In order for the company to offer such a guarantee, it will require periodical maintenance. This will usually be an annual service that will include a fee. Most likely it will involve the dealer reapplying the product that has worn off over the year. This is OK, if it's what you want of course. But you need to be aware of such requirements and follow them to maintain your warranty. And maintain your protection! Most products offered barely last 6 months let alone a year.

2. Protection From Bird Droppings etc - tree sap, bird droppings, bug splatter needs to be removed as soon as practicable. It is highly corrosive and will etch and damage your paint. To this day the technology to completely protect your paint from such impacts is not available. Paint protection products are "resistant" to these type of issues, but nothing is bird bomb "proof". In bad conditions, bird droppings can damage bare paint in a matter of minutes. Paint protection products will provide you with a number of days to prevent damage, maybe even weeks for the exceptional products on the market. But eventually if you don't do regular maintenance, it will eat through.

3. Scratch Resistance - for dealership applied products you can totally disregard these claims. The PFTE Teflon sealants are nothing like your frying pans and no better than some DIY polymer sealants. New technology "coatings" such as the glass coatings from Japan or the aftermarket clear coat produced by Optimum Polymer Technologies are a number of microns in thickness and have been proven to improve scratch resistance. You won't find these at your car dealership though and they are also scratch "resistant". Not scratch "proof".

What is the best Paint Protection choice for me?

A good choice for paint protection will involve weighing up what you are paying up front, what it will cost you down the track, and what you are actually getting. And the most important thing about paint protection is proper maintenance
