Does my car need paint protection?

Virtually every car maker now uses water based paints. It is not possible to achieve a sufficient gloss with water based paints. In addition, all currently used UV absorbers and HALS (hindered amine light stabilisers) volatilise and are lost from the coating over time and migrate into the basecoat or even into the substrate. This leaves the paint unprotected against fading and oxidation. This is true of all paint systems used in automotive manufacturing.

Do not ruin your car's paint by neglecting to protect it!
