There are plenty of ceramic coatings that can be applied to a car’s exterior by a professional, but what about some products that help protect the exterior that are DIY? We know that not everyone has the time or money to take your car to a car body shop, which is exactly why we wanted to dig into a list of alternatives that you can do at home yourself!
First of all, the reasons why it's necessary to apply some type of coating or layer of protection to an exterior is to prevent permanent damage to the paintwork which could cost thousands later on. Rather than letting the exterior receive damage, we take preventive steps to ensure that every car exterior looks shiny and brand new with zero damage.
How does this damage take place? There are several factors that can cause permanent damage the main few being:
These are hard to remove and can cause scratches that will later have to be buffed out or painted over. The coating prevents this.
Every car is left outside once in and a while and even if it isn’t a car can receive UV ray damage when driven on a daily basis. The coating prevents these rays from damaging the paintwork and causing dullness.
Some products that we use to clean a car can contain harmful chemicals. You should take preventive steps and check the labels on the products you are using and just to be safe always make sure that you use some type of protective products beforehand i.e ceramic coatings or DIY hybrid ceramic coating sprays.
Here are the three top products that we strongly recommend that you use at home to up your exterior protection game
