Since 2000 (Europe) and 2004 (US) auto manufactures have been mandated to switch vehicle paint from solvent based to water based. Good news for trees, fish, and other living creatures. Not so good news for folks who buy new or low mileage pre-owned cars and don’t want the front of them getting all chipped up! Water based paint is soft, and therefore more susceptible to damage from road debris. Cars today will get a mark for @ every 100 miles they are driven on the highway. Don’t believe us…go take a close look at the front of your car! The beauty and residual value of your car is getting pummeled on a daily basis. For less than the cost of a repaint, a ‘clear auto bra’ will keep the front of your car looking great for years to come!
