The weather, heat and PPF - in a nutshell, reassure customers that the Dubai weather and the heat won't melt or affect the PPF's protective abilities

Does the climate you live in affect Paint Protection Film ​​

We discussed the self-healing qualities of Paint Protection Film in a previous blog post (linked here), highlighting the use of a heat gun to activate these features. Given Dubai and the UAE's intense sunlight and hot, dry climate, you might be curious about the benefits of using Paint Protection Film for your vehicle's paint.

In short, yes, opting for Paint Protection Film is a wise decision for safeguarding your paint.

Here's why:

Fluctuating temperatures throughout the year can impact your car's paint. Excessive exposure to the sun can be particularly harmful, causing paint to crack and chip over time. This risk is amplified, especially if your car is red.

Paint Protection Film functions as sunscreen for your car, shielding it from damaging UV rays. The film is engineered to counter the sun's ultraviolet radiation, which can otherwise lead to fading, discolouration, or oxidation of your car's paint over time. The film's unique composition includes UV-resistant properties that effectively filter out a significant portion of these harmful rays. This ensures that your car's paint remains vibrant and resilient against sun-induced deterioration.

Other benefits include:

Prevention of fading and discolouration: PPF's ability to prevent paint fading and discolouration impresses anyone concerned about their vehicle's appearance. By blocking harmful UV rays, PPF effectively safeguards your car’s paint job from the unsightly consequences of prolonged sun exposure. This means a protected vehicle will maintain its original colour and shine for much longer, with most Paint Protection Films lasting at least 10 years, allowing you to relish the beauty of your car as the manufacturer intended.

Protection against oxidation and peeling: When a vehicle's paint is exposed to the sun and other environmental factors, the paint’s outer layer can oxidise, leading to a dull, chalky appearance. In severe cases, this oxidation can cause the paint to peel away from the underlying surface. PPF’s UV-resistant properties minimise the risk of oxidation, ensuring that your car’s paint job remains glossy and intact.

Extended lifespan of paint job: PPF extends the lifespan of your vehicle’s paint job. By defending against UV damage and oxidation, PPF allows your vehicle’s paint to withstand the test of time, maintaining its attractive appearance for years to come. This not only enhances your car’s aesthetic appeal but also contributes to preserving its resale value, making PPF an investment that pays off in more ways than one.
