While the most important part of your car may exist under the hood, for most of us, it’s also important that our paintjob looks great. You have a number of options when it comes to protecting it, but they’re not all the same. So here are our professional suggestions.
No Product Will Last for Three Years
Many products like to boast they’ll protect your car paint for three years. Some even say 10. Fall for this and you’ll end up overpaying and disappointed.
Nanolex Paint Sealant
The truth is that a quality product like Nanolex Paint Sealant will give you reliable production for about 12 months or roughly 18,000kms, depending on driving conditions. Still, this is as much as 10 times longer than what you’ll get out of some waxes and other body shop supplies you can buy off the shelf.
Another great option for your auto body paint is Glassplexin. This product actually contains some of the same properties as glass. It will electromagnetically bond with the paint to blend in and provide a glass-like finish for years. Glassplexin will also make it easier to repair damage, as it won’t reach to the paint’s level.
Don’t Forget the Basics
You don’t have to travel long distances or in rough conditions to need protection for your paint. In fact, your car is most likely taking on damage regularly. While UV rays will work against it over the course of years, bird droppings can actually cause immediate harm to your paint job.
So you need to be regularly maintaining your car’s appearance. Washing and having it detailed on a regular basis will go a long way. Just because you have a top-notch product protecting your paint doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. Your cleaning regimen should also consist of a car shampoo to help minimise minor damage. Don’t wash it in direct sunlight, either.
While these may seem like simple tips, they’ll go a long way toward ensuring many years’ worth of your car’s beautiful paintjob. For more information, feel free to reach out to us at Rondex.
