Is Car Paint Protection Worth It ?
What is car paint protection?
Paint protection is nothing new, it’s been around for over 40 years. The concept of a paint sealant is to protect your vehicles paintwork finish from deteriorating, which is caused by the harmful chemicals that are contained in today’s environment such as road salt, chemical fallout and acid rain which all contribute to damaging the surface and paint finish of your vehicle's exterior.
Is car paint protection worth it?
Whether you are purchasing a new or used car, cars are generally the second biggest major investment you make in your life other than buying a house.
Unfortunately, due to environmental demands, manufacturers now have to use water-based paints, which whilst being environmentally safe and friendly, they are more prone to fading and oxidisation. Every day you cars paintwork is exposed to road dirt, salt, bird lime, tree sap, UV and everyday wear and tear, and when combined with the fact wax and polymer polishes simply don’t last long enough, this all takes a toll on your car's appearance which in turn lowers its value.
That is why we believe protecting your cars paintwork is a necessity and worth paying for, in order to protect your investment and keeping that new car shine! So yes paint protection is worth it.
What makes LifeProof different?
Most paint protection products use a cheap polymer-based paint sealant. These sealants are often less effective than products you can buy off the shelf in well-known car parts stores. They are based on technology developed two decades ago: amino functional fluids, which plasticize as they dry. This creates a temporary, sacrificial, soft layer on the paint surface which can wash off within 2-3 months. That is why many competing products require you return to apply a preserver application every six months to a year. The conserver is the same product that was originally applied, with a stronger scent added.
LifeProof is formulated with advanced Nano Ceramic technology. Our paint protection is a high gloss permanent bond Nano-Ceramic Coating that can only be applied by our network of trained approved applicators and is backed up by our Supremecoat guarantee (10 years on new vehicles, 7 years on used), compared to factory paintwork it utilises the latest ceramic nano-technology to give your paintwork superior Chemical Resistance, UV & Thermal Resistance and Super Hydrophobic effect.
The superhydrophobic effect of the coating means any liquid that comes in contact with the surface will simply bead up and roll off along with any dirt and grime, keeping your car cleaner for longer and easier to clean. The ceramic layer will give additional hardness to your paintwork and provide the best protection from damaging environmental contaminants and harsh chemicals that would otherwise compromise the factory clear coat, such as bird line, tar and tree sap.
LifeProof is not a paint protection wax or polymer sealant that will wash away or break down over time, it is a Nano-Ceramic coating that forms a permanent adhesion to the paintwork like an additional layer of clear coat and can only be removed through abrasion, making it the most durable paint protection application on the market.
