Buying a new car is an opportunity to start over in regards to keeping it in great condition; both mechanically and cosmetically. One of the most important things you can do, from the beginning, is to protect the paint on your new automobile. The best way to do this is with a quality polymer paint sealant. Remember, a paint sealant will last much longer, when compared to a natural carnauba wax product. Some products contain natural waxes to enhance the shine. The dealership where you buy your new car will most certainly offer to apply a paint sealant. Usually, they will attempt to charge a large sum of money and claim it is guaranteed to last for a few years. In reality, even the best paint sealants will last about a year under optimal conditions. It is more economical to have a qualified third party, such as a detail company, apply a sealant to your new car; the results will be better as well. The benefit, is that the paint is protected from the beginning from environmental factors such as the sun, road grime, bugs, sap, and road salt. All of these things can quickly damage your new car’s paint if it is not protected. A paint sealant will also make cleaning your car’s paint easier by making the bond between the dirt and the paint less strong. If you are in the market for a new car or have recently purchased one, getting the paint protected early is a smart decision.
