There are several misconceptions people have regarding PPF (paint protection film) and ceramic coatings. In this video, Todd Cooperider quickly explains the benefits of each so you can decide which is best for your vehicles.
The One Huge Benefit of Paint Protection Film
The largest benefit you have with PPF is that it offers impact resistance, which no coating offers despite hardness claims that they may tout. If you have a particularly rough road trip or track day panel(s) can be replaced as needed. The other benefit is the hydrophobic and self-healing properties which not only make washing easier, but also give you peace of mind! Depending on the coating, they can provide some of those same benefits, but don’t be fooled by false claims!
