Car Exterior Plastic Protection
When detailing a vehicle, the most common areas we pay attention to would be: washing, polishing and waxing the exterior to retain that glossy shine, scrubbing the tyre rims till squeaky clean, vacuuming and cleaning every nook and cranny of the interior, including the upholstery and carpet.
Car owners tend to leave out one important aspect that would affect the visual of their car over time – the exterior plastic surfaces of their car. These include the mouldings, trimmings, bumpers, mud guards, door handles, and mirror housings which are normally deep black in colour.
Causes Of Car Exterior Plastic Disintegration
Although made a hundred times more durable than common plastic to withstand the harsh weather, the plastic rim of the car is still prone to disintegration over time. Being one the countries nearest to the equator, Singapore’s climate consists of sunshine and rain all year round. The sun’s scorching heat, intense brightness and strong UV rays can be unbearable. Not forgetting rain so heavy that you can hardly see the road ahead when driving.
Even if the car exterior plastic is designed to be tough, constant exposure to UV rays, heat and other environmental elements will still take its toll, turning the sleek black shiny trim into a dull grey, before turning chalky over time. In serious cases, the plastic dries out, turns brittle and cracks.
Washing the car with strong detergents also speeds up the damage of the car’s exterior plastic. Though strong detergents are effective in getting rid of stubborn stains, grime and dirt, not all are suitable for automobile use. The key thing is to use a suitable cleaning agent so that it does not corrode the car paint or any protective layer.
Exterior plastic parts also include the bumper, car windscreen wipers, the window and door mouldings of the car. For plastic rubbers, over exposure to UV rays and rain will cause it to harden and lose its elasticity. Car wipers would not function efficiently and noise insulation will also be less effective.
