What To Look For When Buying A Car Coating Product 

Car coating comes in many guises. There’s paint protection film (PPF), car wraps, and what many people consider to be the ultimate in car detailing—a ceramic car coating.

However, did you know that they can be used together? Not only does this create a truly eye-popping look, but it increases the vehicle’s hydrophobics and protection of the precious paintwork beneath.

The following discusses everything you need to look for when considering a car coating product for your wheels.

Car Coating: All you need to know

  • What is PPF?
  • What is a car wrap?
  • What is a ceramic coating?
  • Why a combination provides the ultimate result

What is PPF?

PPF, or paint protection film, is a transparent coating that adheres to the paintwork on the vehicle. There are various types. From satin finishes to those that self-heal, these clear bra protection options prevent the precious surface beneath from getting scratched and chipped. It also acts as a valuable layer between the paint and the elements, such as sun, inclement weather, and abrasion.

What is a car wrap?

A car wrap also protects the paintwork but is colored and/or patterned. The shade, pattern, and color can be anything you like, meaning that the look of your ride is only limited by your imagination.

What is a ceramic coating?

Ceramic coating is a clear chemical polymer solution that’s applied by hand to the vehicle and bonds to the paintwork beneath. Nano-technology means that it’s far, far longer lasting than any other car coating and doesn’t degrade through normal weather conditions.

Why a combination provides the ultimate car coating result

Utilizing a PPF or a wrap with an overlay of ceramic coating further enhances either product. Carried out professionally, the protection and advantages—such as self-healing and hydrophobicity—remain as good as ever. It’s also important that it’s done correctly to ensure the paintwork is still able to breathe.

Either combination provides a superior car coating product, with top suppliers—such as Suntek—producing wraps and PPF specifically designed to work with ceramic coating.

How to Choose Car Coating Products and Suppliers

All car coating products and suppliers are not the same 

As with any industry, there is a difference between products. The same applies to those who carry out the work. Depending on your requirements, PPF, car wraps, and ceramic coatings come in budget, standard, and luxury performance categories. 

You might also be tempted by the cheapest option of DIY car coatings. However, before you consider this route you should be aware that applying such products is an art form. Imagine trying to put saran wrap across your car without any creases or air bubbles. That’s pretty much how hard it would be to apply a car wrap of any kind without having learned the skill or having the specialist equipment to do so.

If that fills you with horror—and it should—then that’s the best piece of advice you can have to encourage you to seek a professional service. After all, you’re doing so to enhance the look of your ride. So why would you risk anything but a perfect finish?

Top tips for choosing a supplier

When selecting a reputable supplier for any car coating, the following are some of the questions you should ask:

  • What products do you use? Any professional will stock a range and be able to inform you as to the pros and cons of each
  • Which would be the best for my vehicle? They should ask what you want to achieve from a car coating
  • Where will the work be carried out? You should expect it to be done in as sterile an environment as possible.
  • How is my car prepared for coating? The prep differs somewhat depending on the service to be carried out.
  • And don’t forget to ask about insurance and to see some examples of previous work and reviews from satisfied customers.
