Did you just get your spanking new Tesla? Well, first off, congratulations. It’s a milestone! Secondly, you’re probably looking for effective ways to keep it looking shiny and fresh. So, what’s the best way to go about this? Paint protection film (PPF)! It’s the ideal method for car enthusiasts such as yourself when protecting your prized cars. But what is PPF? How do you install it? How long does it last? We’ve got those answers and more.
What Is Paint Protection Film?
As a Tesla owner, you probably have already seen that Tesla’s overall paint job isn’t really at par with the technology driving it. It has very thin paint that chips easily. As unfortunate as it is, there are different methods that allow you to protect your Tesla AND its resale value, and PPF is one of them.
PPF is installed on the surface of the paint to create a thick barrier which protects it from rocks, bird droppings, stains, scratches, and other elements. It also brings out the shine of your paint and makes it look brand new all the time. Lots of films have a hydrophobic coating, which makes your car really easy to clean.
Why Should You Invest In PPF?
Now that we’ve introduced you to the idea of PPF, here are some long-standing benefits it offers to your Tesla.
- It has self-healing properties
- It hides microscopic imperfections
- It prevents scuffs and scratches, safeguarding your Tesla from everyday use
- It is hydrophobic, making clean-up easy and etching harder
- It is cost-effective, since you no longer need to spend money on future paint touch ups or corrections
- It lasts for up to 10 years
- Technology has advanced to where the films no longer crack or yellow
