2020 Tesla Model Y - Ceramic Coating on Vinyl Wrap | Serving Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights
2020 Tesla Model Y - Ceramic Coating on Vinyl Wrap
Our Killeen-area client brought us their prism-colored vinyl wrapped 2020 Tesla Model Y to have ceramic coating installed, to make it easier to clean up. Ceramic coating will deepen the color of a vehicle, just like it did to this 2020 Tesla Model Y. Importantly, for this Tesla Model Y vinyl wrap, it will significantly increase the wrap’s life. Here in Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights, Tesla vinyl wraps last less time than they might in other parts of the country. The excessive sun can wear out the wrap and damage it, shortening its lifespan. A great vinyl wrap might still only last a few years here. However, ceramic coating and other protective coatings have UV protection in the formula. Since the UV rays are what damages the Tesla vinyl wraps, it’s helpful to get a ceramic or protective coating installed immediately.
Because of the short lifespan of Tesla vinyl wraps, we don’t install vinyl wrap here at Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings. We prefer color paint protection film/PPF/clear bra over vinyl wrap. However, we ceramic coat many vehicles that have been vinyl wrapped for this exact reason. If you are interested in changing the color of your Tesla or another vehicle with vinyl wrap, and you plan to keep it for a long time, consider fashion film PPF/paint protection film/clear bra. PPF warranties are typically 8 to 12 years against yellowing, cracking, or fading.

PAINT PROTECTION FILM/PPF/CLEAR BRA OPTIONS:
Typically, we would use STEK clear bra, Llumar, or Legend PPF gloss or matte paint protection film. Next, This clear bra article covers the major differences between clear bra/paint protection film/PPF companies, if any. Moreover, there are minimal differences between major film manufacturers like Xpel, SunTek, Eastman, Llumar, 3M, STEK clear bra, Flexishield, Global, Legend, and more. Importantly, the key takeaway is that the primary differences are in the properties of the adhesive, which installers have to deal with, but generally don’t affect anything the client sees.
is clear bra/paint protection film/PPF the same as xpel film?
Of course, our clients at HHCC frequently ask about Xpel clear bra/paint protection film. Naturally, our clients want to know if Legend PPF, STEK, Llumar, Kavaca, and other brands compares to Xpel at all. Did you know, a lot of people use Xpel to mean clear bra, because Xpel is one of the most popular brands?
