The sun’s rays, especially UV (ultraviolet) and IR (infrared) or heat, damage all sorts of things, including people’s skin, the interior surfaces of a vehicle, and the exterior paintwork. The intense heat, coupled with long hours of direct sunlight, can cause paint to fade and plastic parts to warp or crack. In extreme cases, rubber seals may even melt, and electrical components could malfunction.
As a result, it is important that you protect your car from the summer heat wave in order to keep it looking good and running strong for many years to come. Wondering what the best ways to protect your car are? Here’s what you need to know.
Are Window Tints An Effective Option?
Window tints are a great option for many reasons. Not only can window tints help to reduce the number of UV rays that could harm passengers and damage the interior of the car, but they can also block infrared rays, which produce an extreme amount of heat during the summer months. Ceramic window tints like XPEL XR+ and XPEL XR are excellent options when it comes to keeping out excessive heat as they offer high IR blocking capabilities. By using a product like this, you can prevent sunny-day bake outs of your car’s interior or enjoy a comfortable car in the parking lot without having to suffer by exposing yourself to a 130-degree temperature.
Nano Ceramic tints are great for those extra hot days out on the road since it blocks out both UV and infrared rays providing optimal skin protection and keeping your car at a bearable temperature no matter how hot it gets outside.
The same Ceramic nanotechnology in ceramic coatings has similar benefits to the exterior of a car. It will protect it from UV rays that cause paint fading and oxidation. Over time paint oxidation will cause your paint to peel away, and your car can rust when the metal underneath is exposed.
