what is paint protection film

Paint Protection Film
Paint Protection film (PPF) is a top plastic film or polymer which acts as a skin that helps to primarily protect the paint from rock chips and small scratches, but also UV exposure, mineral deposits, acid rain, and more. Paint Protection Film is highly resistant to acidic contaminants and corrosion, providing protection against bug splatter, bird droppings, mineral deposits.

Keeps Your Car Looking Brand New

Paint protection film is a great solution for preserving the natural appearance of a vehicle’s paint job. Modern paint protection films bond with the pores in the paintwork, glass, and bumper, leaving the paint with a glossy and smooth finish. A high-quality paint protection film will make your car shine.

Repels Damage

Paint protection creates an invisible barrier between your car’s paint and the things that can damage it. Paint protection protects the car paint from superficial damage. Common destructive elements include pebbles, bird droppings, acidic tree saps, and UV rays.

Reduces the Need for Polishing

Do you, like many other car owners, hate spending money on car polishing? Install a PPF on your car! A high-quality PPF will help maintain the natural appearance of your car’s paintwork for years. Your PPF will eliminate the need for frequent polishing, saving you money in the long run.

Retains Your Car’s Resale Value

Appearance matters. When you are in the market to sell your car, the appearance of the vehicle can make or break a deal. Even small dents and chips and staining can turn potential buyers off. One of the first things car buyers will notice about a car for sale is its external appearance. Even if a car drives smoothly but has several scratches, the owner will have a tough time finding a buyer who agrees to pay the asking price. If you have some sort of paint protection, this won’t be a problem. A PPF will protect the paint job of your car. With its self healing technology Most scratches will come off by just letting the car sit out in the sun.

Makes Car Cleaning Easier

PPF repels dust, which means you won’t have a dust build-up problem. You won’t have to use water everytime and can often simply clean your car with a piece of cloth.

Common Question

Why is Clear Bra better than all the other protections?

Paint protection increases the value of the car when it comes time to resell it. Rocks, insects, and debris can significantly show wear on your paint job within a short period of time. This is particularly true in harsh winter areas where sand is poured on the roads for traction. A properly installed clear bra can solve all of these problems

Can the film be removed if needed?

Yes, Clear Bra film can be removed and replaced if damaged in some way or if it is starting to look rough after several years of protecting your car from the elements.

What is the expected life of the film?

Our Clear Bra film has tested the film under adverse weather conditions over 4 years with no adverse effects. If a large stone hits the film at a high enough speed it will take a small nick out of the film. Over time, more and more nicks will accumulate and you may decide to go ahead and have the film replaced. If you spend a lot of time on the highway, the material may need to be replaced more often. Generally speaking, our film will be good for 5 to 10 years or more.

How long does it take to install?

This mainly depends on how much coverage you are looking for and the difficulty of the job. An average full front takes about 1 day. And we have to let it dry overnight. If more coverage is desired or custom work is necessary we will ask to keep the car longer to give us ample time to do a quality job.

What parts can be protected by Clear Bra?

Hood, Fenders, Front Bumper, Side mirrors, Headlights/Fog lights, Roof edge , Sides of roof/A pillars, Back bumper/Luggage area, Door handles/door cups, Tire-splash, Rocker Panels, All painted surfaces of the vehicle.

Will the film yellow over time?

It is natural for all urethane to discolor to some degree over time depending on how well the film is maintained, however our films have a built in UV inhibitor that will keep it from yellowing and UV damage.

How should I care for the Clear Bra once it is installed?

First, you should give it several days to finish drying before you wash the car. After that, treat it just like it wasn't there. When using a pressure washer, you should make sure to keep the nozzle at least 24" away from the Clear Bra, as 2000 psi of water can damage just about anything, and will damage the clear bra material. When waxing the car, wax right over the clear bra. You may notice a buildup of wax along the upper edge of the material, and a soft toothbrush works well to clean that edge.
