What causes paint damage on cars

Normally, paint damage to a car is caused by external influences hitting your car and resulting in damage to the paint. This can also include collisions with other vehicles, which can cause paint peeling or color deposits on the car's surface.

Some of the most common causes of paint damage are acid damage. Acid damage occurs when something external, such as bird droppings or insects, get stuck on your car. They contain high levels of acid and will break down the paint over time if you don't wash them off in time. It's therefore important to have your car's exterior cleaned frequently to avoid annoying damage to the paintwork as a result of insect deposits.

Weather conditions can also have an impact on the lifespan of the paint. Sea salt and sleet can damage the paint. Vehicles in humid conditions, especially in coastal areas, are at risk of rust damage if small imperfections are not repaired timeously.
