The Best of Both Worlds

The Best of Both Worlds

Having worked in automotive detailing and customization for so long, there are a few things that we hear again and again – one of them is, “my car needs more protection, but I can’t decide between a ceramic coating and PPF”.

We’ve learned that there is a huge contingent of people out there that recognize the value in protecting their vehicles with technologies like PPF and ceramic coatings, but don’t realize that you can actually have both! At CJ’s Autobling, we have a specially engineered ceramic coating that is designed to be applied on top of PPF and vinyl wraps.

For drivers who want the ultimate protection and performance for their paint, combining the benefits of PPF and ceramic coatings is the right choice. Here’s why:

Extend the Life of Your PPF

A major drawback of most PPF available on the market is its vulnerability to UV radiation. Although modern films fair MUCH better than older films, the replacement schedule is typically dictated by solar degradation (this takes anywhere from 5-10 years, depending on the film).

By applying a UV protective ceramic coating on top of your PPF, you will protect the film from solar damage, thereby extending its life.

Easier Maintenance

Most PPF isn’t particularly hydrophobic (which means washing them isn’t any easier than washing normal paint). One of the biggest reasons why people invest in ceramic coatings is to take advantage of their hydrophobic properties.

With a ceramic coating installed on top of your PPF, you will get to take advantage of the hydrophobic action of ceramic coatings in addition to the powerful protective powers of paint protection films.

With a ceramic coating installed on top of your PPF, you will get to take advantage of the hydrophobic action of ceramic coatings in addition to the powerful protective powers of paint protection films. Not only will cleaning your vehicle be easier than you can imagine, but you won’t have to do it as often because dirt and grime won’t be able to stick.

Protect PPF From Chemical Damage

Ceramic coatings are the gold standard for chemical resistance. A coating will protect your PPF from damage caused by chemical agents like bird deposits, bug splatter, tree sap, and acid rain. Preventing PPF from discolouration from chemical contaminants is a key strategy in maintaining a perfect look.

Rock Chip Protection

On their own, ceramic coatings are not able to protect against rock chips. They are too thin and hard to absorb the impact of a significant rock chip. PPF, on the other hand, is exceptional at protecting against rock chip damage – that is the their most popular feature.

Having a layer of PPF underneath the ceramic coating means that your vehicle will be safe from rock chips, dings, and other significant damage. This is especially important if you do a lot of highway driving or spend any time on back roads.

Style

We all care about how our cars look, and nothing protects the aesthetics of your vehicle like a ceramic coating. Ceramic coatings seal in flawless paint, allowing the deep gloss to shine through, without fading or getting damaged. PPF doesn’t enhance your vehicle’s look the same way that ceramic coatings do, so if you’re serious about making an impression, a ceramic coating is the way to go.
