Ceramic coating makes cleanup easier!
A truck/car ceramic coating provides a layer of protection for the paint on your vehicle. It creates a barrier between the paint and the environment, helping to prevent damage from things like bird poop, bug guts, UV rays, and more. Additionally, a car ceramic coating can make your car’s paint more glossy and helps prevent scratches and swirls. How does a car ceramic coating prevent swirls? Well, directly – it doesn’t. But when you aren’t scrubbing as hard on your paint to remove dirt, grime, and bug guts – you are less likely to scratch it!
Having a truck/car ceramic coating on your car can also make it easier to maintain the appearance of your paint, as dirt and grime will not stick as easily and can be more easily removed during washing. This can help keep your car looking new for a longer period and potentially increase its resale value.
Another benefit of ceramic coatings is that they can enhance the shine and overall appearance of your car’s paint, making it look even better than it did before.
It’s important to note that a truck/car ceramic coating should be applied by a professional, as an improper application can damage the paint. Additionally, it’s important to maintain the ceramic coating according to the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure it protects your car’s paint.
Clear bra/PPF/paint protection film prevents most rock chips!
Clear bra/PPF is applied to a vehicle’s front (or all areas) to protect it from damage caused by rocks, gravel, and other road debris. Unlike truck/car ceramic coating, it actually protects against rock chips and scratches. Do NOT listen to anyone that tells you that a truck/car ceramic coating protects against rock chips!
Having a clear bra is important for several reasons:
Protection of the paint: The clear bra/PPF acts as a barrier between the paint and any debris that may hit the car, helping to prevent many scratches and chips. It is important to note that clear bra will not stop dings or hail damage.
Preservation of the car’s value: Maintaining the appearance of a car is crucial for its resale value. A clear bra can help to keep the vehicle looking new, just like truck/car ceramic coatings.
Easy maintenance: Clear bra/PPF is difficult to permanently damage while hand-washing, unlike paint, which can swirl when too much pressure is applied. Unlike truck/car ceramic coatings, clear bra is truly self-healing. This means many minor swirls and scratches will come out with the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights sun or other heat.
Overall, a clear bra/PPF, just like truck/car ceramic coatings, can be a valuable investment for anyone who wants to protect their vehicle and keep it looking its best.
Why install clear bra AND a truck/car ceramic coating?
Installing both a paint protection film (PPF) and a truck/car ceramic coating can offer several benefits for protecting and maintaining the appearance of a vehicle in the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area.
Protection: PPF and truck/car ceramic coatings work together to provide a double layer of protection for the vehicle’s paint. The PPF acts as a barrier against physical damage from road debris, while the ceramic coating provides a protective barrier against environmental factors such as UV rays, road grime, and bird poop. The clear bra/paint protection film also provides UV protection, and the ceramic coating provides UV protection to the clear bra itself.
Gloss and shine: Truck/car ceramic coatings will enhance the shine and gloss of the vehicle’s paint, making it look newer and more vibrant for longer. Our clear bra options will also provide gloss and fill in minor swirls.
Hydrophobic properties: Truck/car ceramic coatings also provide hydrophobic properties, which cause water to bead up and roll off the vehicle’s surface, helping keep it clean and dry. While PPF has hydrophobic properties, we haven’t found it to be as effective as a good ceramic coating, such as our System X MAX 10-year ceramic coating.
Ease of maintenance: PPF and truck car/ceramic coating make cleaning and maintaining a vehicle’s appearance easier. The smooth surface provided by the ceramic coating helps to prevent dirt and grime from sticking, while the PPF helps to prevent scratches and chips.
Increased resale value: Maintaining the appearance of a vehicle is important for its private resale value. Installing both PPF and a car/truck ceramic coating can help preserve the vehicle’s appearance and increase its value over time.
Overall, installing both PPF and a truck/car ceramic coating can provide a comprehensive solution for protecting and maintaining the appearance of a vehicle.
