We have methods to protect the engine and inner workings of our cars, but what about the exterior? The body of your car is also essential to keeping it in good condition. To protect our car’s exterior, we have paint protection film, or PPF. It is similar to window tinting in that it is a layer that goes over your car’s paint job to protect it from the elements and extend its life.
If you’ve been considering PPF for your car, here are four reasons why summer is a great time to go for it.
Ideal Weather Conditions
PPF installation requires a clean and dry surface for optimal adhesion. Early summer weather typically offers warm temperatures and lower humidity, which can facilitate the installation process and allow the PPF to bond effectively to the car’s surface.
Faster Curing Time
PPF adhesive needs time to bond and cure properly. Higher temperatures during the summer can help accelerate the curing process, allowing the film to adhere more securely to the car’s paint. If you’re planning a road trip and want to apply PPF before you leave, conditions in the summer allow your car to be ready to go sooner.
Summer is a time when many people engage in outdoor activities such as road trips, vacations, and beach visits. These activities often expose your car’s exterior to potential hazards like stone chips, road debris, insect residue, and UV rays. Applying PPF before the summer season can provide an added layer of protection against such elements, helping to preserve your car’s paintwork.
PPF can enhance the appearance of your vehicle by providing a glossy and smooth finish. With the longer daylight hours during summer, the PPF’s visual impact can be more pronounced, making your car look even more appealing.
