Your Ultimate Guide: Tesla Paint Protection Film
Lets start with the basics. What is Paint Protection Film and why should I consider it for my Tesla? Paint Protection Film, also known as PPF or Clear Bra, is a relatively thick protective layer that goes on top of your paint to stop rock chips, surface scratching, and etchings. Paint Protection Film has come a long way in the past 5-10 years compared to the Film that came standard from the factory on older vehicles. The longevity and added benefits are insurmountable compared to the old factory 3M Film and does not yellow and peel like most of us picture when Clear Bra is mentioned! Protecting the Factory Finish on your Tesla is important in preserving the lifetime value of the vehicle removing the opportunity for Rock Chips, Scratches, and Bugs!

Paint Protection Film or Ceramic Coating for your Tesla?
The options for Protecting your Tesla Paint are quite extensive ranging from traditional Waxes & Sealants to Full Body Paint Protection Film applications. The two of the best options in the detailing industry right now are Ceramic Coatings and PPF, but what are the main differences between the two? A Ceramic Coating is a semi-permanent protection layer that is 4x harder than clear coat and traditional waxes. It offers protection against chemical staining, fading paint, and light abrasive swirls & scratches. A Ceramic Coating is a perfect option and helps you maintain your vehicle keeping it cleaner longer as well as making it extremely easy to wash and maintain. On the other side, we have PPF which is an actual film that is applied to your vehicle’s surface, giving you a physical barrier between outside contaminants and your vehicle’s factory finish.
Tesla Paint Protection Film North East Orlando
The Benefits of getting Paint Protection Film on your Tesla range from simple things like aesthetic looks to scratch protection. The latest advances in Paint Protection Film technology have given us a lot of benefits that haven’t been offered in the past. One of the most notable ones is the self-healing properties of the PPF top coat. The self-healing allows the PPF to basically melt back to a perfect finish when heat is added to the surface whether that be from a heat gun or the sun. This keeps your maintenance easy as there is absolutely no need for polishing to remove surface imperfections as it has a self-healing topcoat layer that will heal itself as heat is introduced either from a heat gun or the sun!

- Ceramic Coated Paint Protection Film Available Giving You the Best Qualities of Both

- Stops Rock Chips
- Stops Minor Scratching and Abrasions

Tesla Ceramic Coating
Ceramic Coatings have been around for years offering extreme protection against UV Damage, Fading, Light Surface Abrasion, & Chemical Staining. Utilizing this technology on your Tesla Exterior you can protect against all sorts of environmental and chemical issues. One of the biggest benefits of a Ceramic Coating is the ease of maintenance. Whether you wash your vehicle or you have your detailer maintain it on a schedule, a Ceramic Coating makes this process immensely more simple. Your vehicle will stay clean longer as well as be easier to clean when it does become dusty and dirty. A Ceramic Coating also gives you a semi-permanent layer on top of your factory clear coat which gives you a sacrificial layer before your ever decreasing layer of clear coat starts to take damage. Nano-Ceramic Technology has come a long way in the past 10 years, now we offer a specific coating for each surface of the vehicle to ensure durability based on that material. We carry coatings that go on the Wheels, Calipers, Plastics, Painted Surfaces, Glass, & All Interior Surfaces!

Tesla Paint Protection Film Packages
Protecting your Tesla’s Finish is an important part in maintaining the value of your Tesla throughout it’s life, but it comes to choosing the right Paint Protection Film package it all comes down to the coverage you are looking for! Protecting areas like the front bumper and the headlights/fog lights is always a great start coverage-wise. These areas tend to see the most damage from rock chips and bug damage. As you move up the vehicle parts of the Hood, Fenders, Mirrors, and A-Pillars start to see damage from rock chips even though they are not in direct line of damage like the Front Bumper is, so these are other areas that Paint Protection Film makes sense in. Here at Ceramic Pro Daytona Elite Dealer, we offer multiple coverage options to ensure your Tesla is protected!
