Is Paint Protection Film Worth It?

If you're looking to buy a new car or already have a vehicle you care about, you may be interested in ways that you can help keep its paint looking new. Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a great option that can help prevent paint chips and abrasions for the most at-risk spots on your car. In this guide we'll go over everything you need to know about PPF so that you can determine if it's worth adding to your vehicle.

What is Paint Protection Film?

Paint Protection Film

Paint Protection Film is a specially designed clear film that is applied to the exterior of your car to protect its paint from everyday road damage. We use PPF from LLumar which is transparent enough to blend in with your factory paint – making it virtually invisible. This clear film has a self-healing coating that allows it to absorb impacts from small rocks and debris and not tear. 

How is Paint Protection Film Applied?

The PPF film is cut specifically per vehicle with our plotter device, after which the surface is sprayed with a specialized solution that floats the film, allowing our technicians to correctly place it. From there, the solution is squeegeed out from underneath the film, and the PPF adheres to the paint surface.

At first, there may still be specks of water that can be seen underneath the surface, but as the film sets to the vehicle and dries, the water underneath should evaporate out.

How Long Does Paint Protection Film Last?

By properly caring for the film according to the manufacturer's guidelines, you can expect the paint protection film to last anywhere between 5 to 10 years! Plus, we back our PPF with a 5-year limited warranty against yellowing, fading, cracking, and peeling.

Now that you know the ins and outs of PPF, you can determine if you would want to add it to your vehicle. Overall, we strongly recommend paint protection film for those who do a lot of highway driving, as highspeed pebbles and debris can easily chip your car's exterior. PPF provides affordable protection for the paint of your car and can help keep it looking new for years to come.
