As a car owner, it can be a daunting task to try and keep your vehicle looking as good as it did on the day that you first bought it. After all, with so many potential hazards, how do you know which ones to focus on when it comes to protecting your vehicle? Well, our team here at Mr Nano protective coatings for cars has decided to do the hard work for you by breaking down the top 5 biggest threats to your car’s appearance, allowing you to get to work faster on fighting against them.
If your car is regularly left outside, then the harmful UV rays of the sun will, over time, cause serious damage to your car’s paint job. This is due to a process called oxidisation, which will essentially cause your paint to fade and result in an overall duller appearance. The easiest way to combat this hazard is to leave your car in a spot of shade, or indoors in some capacity. Alternatively, for those who do not have such options available, you could provide an extra layer of protection for your car by investing in a ceramic coating, such as the one we sell right here at Mr Nano Protective Coatings.
Scratches and Scuffs
Another hazard which most car owners will already be painfully aware of is the possibility of your car’s paint being scuffed or scratched. This can occur in many ways, which is why it is so difficult to keep on top of. The best thing you can do for your car to offer an all-round protection is to use a scratch-resistant paint protection on your car’s surface. For example, you could use our Mighty Armour range, which is decided to protect against any hazard that may cause scratching or scuffing.
While dirt may not seem like a huge threat to your car, the build up of it can be extremely detrimental. The most obvious reason for this is that it tarnishes the aesthetic of your vehicle if left unchecked, however it is also worth noting that dirt has the potential to cause damage to your vehicle if you don’t wash it off regularly, due to it bonding with your car’s paint and becoming difficult to remove without also removing the paint itself. Again, you can use a ceramic car coating to minimise the potential effects of this, due to the coating being hydrophobic and allowing you to easily wash off any mud or grime.
Naturally acidic contaminants have the potential to cause stains and etchings on your vehicle, damaging the paint job and ruining the overall appearance. These contaminants can be present in many instances, such as in bird poo, for one example. As these are hard to avoid overall if your car is regularly on the road or left outside, it is best to get ahead of them and ensure that your car is protected from the start with a ceramic coating.
Our final, and perhaps most obvious, threat to your car’s appearance is time. Over time, if you do not keep on top of your car’s upkeep, your paint job will fade, and the quality of the car will decrease overall. Therefore, it is important that you regularly treat your car and apply protective layers to its paint to keep it looking brand new for as long as possible. You could also enlist the help of a specialist if you feel like you are not up to the task, such as our team here at Mr Nano Protective Coatings.
