So what are the top 10 benefits of paint protection film and why should you 3M your car.

1. Paint Protection Film Protects Your Cars Value

Everyone knows the scary stats that simply driving your car off the lot results in a significant decrease in its value and over time it doesn’t get any better. Calgary’s intense and powerful weather conditions will only lead to a further decrease in your cars resale value as well, think about when you go to buy a car. You would never buy a rusted, hail damaged car with rock chips, would you? The 3M film can help prolong the health of your car by acting as a protective layer from these elements, get paint protection film in Calgary asap if you are concerned about any of these environmental factors damaging your car.

2. 3M Films Prevent Damage Before It Happens

Environmental conditions aren’t the only things that can damage your vehicle, each and every day your car is subject to attack from several contaminants that are beyond your control. Parking lot scuffs, bug guts, bird droppings, and UV rays. These outside factors without the added protection 3M paint protection film provide can lead to damages that will cost more than the initial investment in the first place. An excellent example of this is a bird dropping landing on your car when left to sit directly on your paint it will have chemical reactions which can result in the oxidization and damage of your paint, investing in some quality PPF, 3M film or paint protection can go a long way by acting like a protective layer for your car against these attacks.

We constantly hear our clients say nothing beats seeing their car clean and 3M paint protection film allows you to keep your car clean easier thanks to its durability so you can detail it quickly (yes, this is the only time we will say automatic car washes are ok) because the damages caused from incorrect washes and details generally won’t affect the paint thanks to the layer of protection provided by 3M film. Paint Protection Film will also allow cleaning to be much quicker and efficient due to its surface being much easier to clean and harder for contaminants to stick to when compared to the steel of your car.

When a quality 3M paint protection film is applied onto your car it can and should have self healing properties. Depending on the type of film the marks should be able to be rubbed off or it may heal thanks to heat form the sun. Its great how PPF can turn the negative sun rays into a positive for your car.

In the scenario that your paint protection film needs to be removed it is generally a simple and easy process provided you applied quality 3M coating onto your car. Some scenarios where you may need to remove PPF is when there is extensive damage on your car.

8. How Does 3M Compare To Ceramics

Depending on what outcome you are truly looking for each service provides its own value. Ceramic coatings are great solutions that can be applied onto cars but get a bad rep because they do not provide the same protecting properties as paint protection film. We recommend you think hard about what you really need then speak to a Calgary car detailing company to further discuss your needs.
