Paint quality has been a widespread concern among Tesla owners. Although Teslas are a luxury vehicle, the paint is known for being soft and thin. The paint around the wheel wells, bumpers and fenders are especially known for having issues. As a result, Teslas need a little more TLC in the paint department, and Tesla owners are turning to paint protection solutions like Clear Bra Paint Protection Film and ceramic coatings.
Paint protection products prevent:
- Paint chipping
- Swirl marks
- Hard water spots
What is Clear Bra Paint Protection Film?
This type of protective film (also known as PPF) is applied to the paint on your car. Clear Bra PPF, unlike ceramic coatings, has a highly malleable urethane that can self-heal when scratched, automatically filling in any gaps caused by minor scratches and abrasions. Paint protection film is generally installed over fenders, bumpers, hoods, or entire vehicles. With full coverage, your vehicle’s finish will be shiny and protected from larger debris and scratches.

What are Ceramic Coatings?
In contrast to Clear Bra, ceramic coating forms a permanent bond to your car’s paint surface. This bond protects it from all surface stains, including bird droppings, bug stains, and even oxidation. In addition to protecting your surface from minor scratches, the ceramic coating will make it dirt and water-resistant, making car washes faster and easier than ever.
Combining Clear Bra and Ceramic Coatings for Superior Protection
When deciding whether to install Clear Bra PPF or a ceramic coating to your Tesla, remember that both products protect your vehicle but do so in different ways.The combination of ceramic coating and clear bra is the most effective way to protect your car’s paint.
Paint protection film offers scratch, chip, and environmental protection with self-healing properties to keep your Tesla looking its finest. Adding a ceramic coating will give your Tesla a sleeker shine and give it hydrophobic properties that make it easier to clean. In addition, it’s very important to ceramic coat PPF due to it’s more malleable nature. Adding both products at once will provide everything you are looking for when it comes to protecting the paint and preserving its resale value.
