What is Paint Protection Film (PPF)?
Paint Protection Film is a thermoplastic urethane film applied to painted surfaces of vehicles in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions. Paint protection film is commonly referred to as clear bra, clear film, clear paint film, PPF and other names.
Can Paint Protection Films be washed & waxed?
Yes, you may wash and wax your car as if Paint Protection Film was not present. In fact, we suggest you do wax the
film protective layer just the same as the rest of the car, to ensure against uneven fading of your car’s paint.
If I sell my car can the Paint Protection Film be removed?
Yes, our films use a patented acrylic adhesive, which can be safely removed without residue, leaving your car looking as great as the day you bought it! We frequently remove competitor’s film to replace it with our own stone protection film for our clients and it frequently takes longer to remove the glue residue their films leave behind than the film itself. Not a job we relish performing!
Will Paint Protection Films diminish the appearance of my car?
No. Our Paint Protection Film will protect your car from stone chips and scratches for years to come and remain virtually invisible.
Why are Paint Protection Films needed now?
- Paints are different now than 20 years ago, and they are applied differently. Many of the environmentally unfriendly ingredients, such as lead, have been removed. Unfortunately, these ingredients are also what made paint more durable. Also, paints are applied much thinner now than in years past, being applied by computers. While this allows for great initial quality, the thinner paint is far less durable.
- Chrome-plated metal parts have disappeared. Where bright trim IS used, it is virtually always electro-plated plastic,
which is vulnerable to stone chip damage.
- Headlights, formerly made of heavy, durable glass, are almost universally made of lightweight, super-clear plastic.
While they are highly impact resistant, they are vulnerable to rock dings, scratches and scuffs from everyday driving
