The sun can get blazingly hot to the point where the damage can accelerate. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at how to protect your car from the UV rays.

How to Prevent UV Damage on your Car’s Paint

To begin, we’ll talk about how you can prevent UV damage on your car’s paint. One of the things that happens is known as photodegradation. In plain English, it’s the color’s paint that is fading.

UV rays can break down the chemical bonds in the paint. Overtime, the color itself can fade. Another issue that happens is oxidation, where the rays can leave spots that look like tie-dye.

Here are some preventative measures you can take in order prevent these damaging things to happen:

Protect Your Exterior with a Graphene Coating

There are lots of options to protect your car’s paint.

Firstly, there are car waxes. These add a lot of shine and a thin layer of protection. However, waxes tend to only last a few weeks under normal driving conditions.

On the other hand, you could use a ceramic coating. These are a SiO2 based coating that’s ultra strong. Some ceramic coatings can last multiple years.

While both of these are great options, you’ll want to look at graphene coatings. These, essentially, an upgraded version of ceramic coatings. They are more durable and last longer.

Right now, these are the top of the line. Being even stronger than ceramic coatings (and 200x stronger than steel), they can last for several years.

Plus, applying a graphene coating that will last up to one year is easier than ever thanks to Torque Detail Graphene Burst.

Start with Cleaning and Protecting the Interior

Protecting your car doesn’t just include the exterior. UV rays can harm your dashboard, upholstery, and more.

If you love your car, you are probably a pro at cleaning your dashboard. But- you can go the extra step to protect it from sun damage.

If you want to protect it with maximum effect, consider using our Intra Clean and Intra Shield package that makes it simple to deeply clean and protect your car’s interior.

Protect the Plastics from Fading

If there’s one part of your vehicle that could get damaged quickly, it’s the plastics.

That’s why you’ll want to consider using Plastic Restore. Whether it’s the black plastic in your interior or the bumper, this will be the perfect choice to make sure your plastics don’t get scratched or damaged by the sun.

Park in the Shade

This is obvious enough. If you park away from the sun’s rays then the rays can’t reach your car, and the damage won’t happen.

You can do this easily by parking in your garage. Generally, they are temperature regulated, making it perfect for year-round protecting. If you don’t have a garage on your property, you can use a pop-up cover.

Either way, you’ll want to park your vehicle underneath it so you can keep it completely out of the sun.

When you’re away from your property, you can still protect your car by parking underneath a tree, a covered parking facility, or a shady spot.

Use a Car Cover

Unfortunately, there are time where you won’t be able to park away from the sun’s rays. You may be away from home or trying to find a spot in a big parking lot. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry.

You can use car covers (or pop up covers) to protect your car year round whereever you are. Car covers can be easily put over your vehicle and can block every inch from the sun.

This will come in handy when you don’t have a garage. Put this to good use and you’ll be able to protect your entire vehicle from the sun.

Wash Your Car Regularly

If you love your car, you’ll want to take excellent care of it. This means removing all contaminants that appear on the surface including dust, dirt, droppings, and yes, even sap.

You could go to your local car wash, but you’ll want to think twice about that. We have plenty of products that you can use for this such as our Full Decon Kit.

Our kit includes a Decon Soap, Clay Lube, Clay Stick, and a Wash Mitt. It’s exactly what you’re looking for when you want to wash your car on a regular basis.
