Paint Protection Film (PPF) VS Ceramic Coatings – Which One is Best?

Updated: Jan 23, 2023

What is Paint Protection Film?

Paint protection film also known as clear bra or PPF offers a great way to protect your vehicle, while enhancing gloss & shine or creating a matte finish. It consists of large sheets of transparent urethane film that is applied to your vehicle by a certified paint protection expert like us here at Dynamic Car Care. Once applied it offers scratch resistance, protection from rock chips, stains, weather related elements and more. Self healing properties & UV protection ensure your vehicle stays looking its best for years to come. And the great thing about having paint protection film installed on your vehicle is you can opt for a partial application to protect high scratch/traffic areas. Think bumpers, rocker panels, fenders etc. Or go for a full clear bra installation to protect your entire vehicle & enhance overall aesthetic.

What is a Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coatings utilize nano-ceramic technology to create a liquid polymer that when applied to your vehicle creates a protective glass like shield. Hydrophobic capabilities make vehicle maintenance incredibly easy. In fact, you will never have to wax your car again. Instead if taken care of properly high quality ceramic coatings offer UV protection & enhanced vehicle gloss & shine keeping your car, truck or SUV looking its very best. Ceramic coatings are applied by hand by an experienced & certified ceramic coating installation expert and can be applied to both the interior & exterior of your vehicle as well as plastics and wheels!

Choose The Right Protection for Your Vehicle

When it comes to choosing which paint protection option is best for you, it all depends on personal preference and the qualities you are looking for. Paint protection film offers self healing properties that mean once the surface area is warm any scratches or small chips, rock dings etc magically disappear as if they were never there.

On the other hand the hydrophobic capabilities that ceramic coatings possess allow for a glass like shield that repels water and other environmental contaminants like acid rain, bug spatter, and more. In the end the truly best option when it comes to paint protection film vs ceramic coatings is to have them both applied!
