A Quick Comparison of Paint Protection Films
The color of your car may not be the reason you bought it, but it’s the reason you feel so darn great behind the wheel. That’s why protecting it is one of the most important things you can do. By now, you know that paint protection film is the best way to keep your paint job looking as good as new. But there are tons of options to choose from. Before you pick a brand, make sure you know what your options are.
Like all paint protection films, Llumar provides a sturdy buffer between your paint and any potential scratches. And when it’s installed professionally, it blends flawlessly with your car’s finish. You won’t have to worry about passersby noticing the film or thinking that your paint looks dull. But what makes it really stand out from other options on the market is the self-healing technology. If the film is scratched, it won’t start peeling up. Instead, it spreads back out and fills in the scratches as soon as the sun warms the film up.
3M is one of the leading manufacturers of paint protection film and for good reason: they produce an incredibly durable product. Once installed, it lasts for years without any special treatment. Just wash and wax your car like normal. When the time comes to replace the film, it’s easy to remove and won’t damage the paint underneath. Your car will look just as good as it did before you applied the film. Just make sure you have the film professionally removed to ensure that your paint stays in pristine condition.
SunTek provides the same level of protection as 3M products, but it’s better for cars with darker paint jobs or those with tons of accent details. It sets clear and, when professionally installed, it won’t leave the tell-tale seam that people walking by can easily see on darker paint jobs. Keep in mind that the adhesive is not as robust as 3M and Llumar films. You may need to reapply the film sooner, especially if it gets scratched deeply or frequently.
