Which Do I choose For My Car? PPF Paint Protection Film Or Ceramic Coating?

When it comes to guarding the surface of your car, truck, or motorcycle, there are really just two major forms of protection to choose from. A ceramic Coating or PPF Paint Protection Film. You can also team up the two for the ultimate protection package. This blog may help a bit when deciding which is for you and your budget.

The fact is, both are fantastic choices. They do however have very different characteristics. One tip I can give, if you only plan on keeping your vehicle for a short period of time, a coating may be your best choice. If you plan on holding on to your vehicle long term, PPF may be a better choice.

Not only do they have different characteristics, they are applied in a completely different way as well. Ceramic Coatings have been around for over a dozen years. Our coating is in the same family as ceramic (Sio2). Apex Detail Curates their own proprietary blend of Polysilazane. S13N4 is a much more durable coating than most found on the market these days. Polysilazane has a much higher tempurature and abrasion threshold than standard Sio2 coatings found in shops local to you. Here is a video showing application of our coating plus results....

When it comes to PPF or Paint Protection Film also called clear bra back in the day, We use Stek. We have tried many over the years, including Xpel, Kavaca, Llumar, Suntek and many more. STEK has the best overall balance of quality adhesives, Puncture proof resins, top layer that is self-healing, and a hydrophobic top layer. STEK is revolutionizing the Paint Protection Film industry by producing highly advanced film technologies designed to protect the most advanced vehicles. With our leading Hydrophobic and Self Healing top-coat technology and extreme gloss factor, STEK offers a film for each driver's style to keep your vehicle a beautifully protected staple of your personality.

PPF is the choice for you if you plan on holding on to your vehicle for a lengthy period of time. PPF will guard your vehicle from rock chips, stone chips, minor bumps and bruises, and minor swirls and scratches. PPF in much more expensive than Ceramic Coatings as well, something to keep in mind. Here is a video of us installing a full body package Stek PPF to a BMW M3 Competition. This was shipped from the dealership new to us to protect before mile one. Then shipped home to Florida to enjoy.
