Why paint protection film (PPF) makes sense for your Tesla

Many owners are apprehensive about purchasing protective paint film (PPF) for their Tesla over claims that it’s too expensive, can ruin the paint on the hood or bumper, and doesn’t hold up to warranty claims.

However, we’re here to debunk these statements by telling you that PPF for a Tesla is the smartest decision you can make. Whether you have a Model X, Model Y, Model S or Model 3, be sure to check out why you should consider PPF:

It reduces paint chipping

There are several instances that can cause paint chippings on your car. Some of these include:

• Harsh UV exposure
• Gravel or rock hits
• Sleet and road salt damage
• Abrasive cleaners
• Bird droppings
• Fuel stains
• Scratches from automated car washes

Paint chippings undermine the cosmetic appearance of any vehicle, but especially those considered high-performing – such as electric vehicles. The coating of Tesla’s are nowhere near as technical as the vehicle’s capabilities, as even small pieces of debris can easily penetrate the thin factory clear coat and leave a hard-to-fix chip.

That’s where PPF comes in. PPF is made from a thermoplastic polymer that has high-impact resistance. This makes the film long-lasting as it’s able to easily deflect road debris and sun damage.

It’s the best value for your money

Every vehicle owner considers the cost of aftermarket work. However, what’s the point in paying top money for an electric vehicle, only to leave it vulnerable to minor scratches?

With advancements in technology and manufacturing standards in the automotive industry, the cost of PPF installations has dropped dramatically. This is because installers now have tools such as plotters to aid the process.

A protective film is the only solution that prevents sun damage while simultaneously protecting against toxins and rock scratches. The thermoplastic material has a lifespan of up to 10 years, making it the best financial investment you can make for your Tesla.

It can hide paint imperfections

Technology helps streamline several everyday processes, and its usage in the automotive industry is no different. PPF has nontechnology infused in the adhesive that helps mask issues in your Tesla’s cosmetic appearance.

Once installed on your Tesla, the PPF fills swirl marks, minor scratches, and other slight imperfections that occur as a result of factory paint jobs. This is important given that the quality of Tesla paint jobs is not on par with the vehicle’s technological capabilities.

Overall, the adhesive slip increases the gloss, depth, and shine of your Tesla’s paintwork. This leaves white cars looking crisp and sleek and black cars looking shiny.

It’s highly customisable

Many Tesla owners like to complement their electric vehicle modifications with further cosmetic customisations. PPF allows you to do this.

Electric vehicle owners can choose between clear or matte finishes to their vehicle – allowing them to add an extra glossy finish to their car or give it a more sultry and sleek texture. There continue to be more additions to protective film options with some automotive companies offering coloured and textured films too.
