The very best way to protect your vehicle from environmental damage is by investing in  paint protection, a film by XPEL. This clear, sick, and extremely hydrophobic polyurethane material shields from damage. Your car’s paint from grime, bird droppings dirt scratches, swirl marks, and other harsh environmental elements are bound to diminish the newness of the vehicle’s paint. Paint protection film also helps to prevent minor scratches and dings from occurring.  paint protection film by XPEL is available at XPEL’s dealer TINT 360 in North Phoenix, so you should have no problem finding it.

This application offers twice the hardness strength of traditional professional-grade coatings. Its thick and durable characteristics leave an extremely high-gloss appearance and the hydrophobic finish repels liquids and various contaminants that cut down the life of a vehicle’s original shine. 

4. Invest in a High-Grade Nano-Ceramic Tint 

A high-grade nano-ceramic window film will not only protect its passengers but will also protect the interior upholstery and dash of the vehicle for many years to come. The sun is brutal, especially in climates like Arizona. With the dry heat, and the harmful UV rays it is inevitable the sun will damage the interior of your vehicle. This damage can result in cracking color, fading, seat rotting with other types of damage. A high-grade nano-ceramic window film is applied to every piece of glass in the vehicle every side roll-down window, small wing windows, rear windows, panoramic roofs, or sunroofs, along with the full front windshield. These films will keep the sun out and its harmful UV rays and will protect the interior of your vehicle at the highest level.

5. Wash and maintain your car regularly.

It sounds pretty obvious, but if you want to keep your car looking new it’s important that you maintain it properly. A professional and experienced detailer will use specialized products, tools, and techniques to restore your vehicle’s exterior without causing any damage to the paint protection film (PPF) or the XPEL coatings that have been applied and the paint underneath them.
