Winter can be a beautiful time for Twin Cities commuters. There’s nothing quite like the snowy landscape as you’re traveling down the highway when the world is a winter wonderland.


While all of that snow and ice transforms the landscape, it also transforms the road into a more hazardous place. When the roads are treated with sand and salt to make them safer for drivers, your car’s paint job can suffer.


With all of the extra road debris that kicks up during your winter commute, you want to do everything you can to keep your paint job looking its best. At Sun Control of Minnesota, we offer paint protection film to protect your paint from road debris and more.


In this post, we’ll break down how paint protection film works in the winter. Give us a call to schedule paint protection film installation for your vehicle!

Damage from Sand and Salt

Paint protection film goes a long way when it comes to protecting your car’s paint throughout the year. But it’s especially hard-working in the winter. When road trucks bring sand and salt to help melt the ice more quickly and make roads safer, these de-icers can stick to your vehicle. As sand and salt sit on your car, they can damage your paint job, causing it to erode over time.


Although you may try to protect your vehicle by regularly cleaning salt and sand off of your paint, it can be difficult to keep your ride free of debris when you’re busy living life. That’s where paint protection film comes to the rescue.

Protecting Your Whole Vehicle

Paint protection film is a high-grade, durable, colorless coating that we apply to your vehicle’s high-impact areas. This material helps significantly reduce damage from the weather including paint chips. Our paint protection film is self-healing, healing out scratches on the surface of the film on its own. With paint protection film, your vehicle’s paint will be better able to withstand whatever winter roads have in store for your ride.


Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, we can have most paint protection film installed in less than four hours.


Here are a few more benefits of installing paint protection film on your vehicle:


●        Specified warranty of up to ten years

●        Clear finish that won’t haze or dull your paint finish

●        Maintain your car’s value longer by keeping your original paint looking great longer

●        Long-lasting films can continue to work for a lifetime depending on how they’re treated and with routine washing and waxing
