Paint Protection Film
Paint protection film PPF, simply put is a clear polyurethane film that is installed on to the front of the vehicle. The reason for installing paint protection film would be to stop all stone chips, road debris, and bugs from staining the paintwork or causing damage to the paint. The cost of repainting the damaged paintwork on a vehicle could be quite expensive.
It’s available in two options; the basic protection package would cover the first quarter of the bonnet, front fenders, and full bumper bar. The second option is the complete protection package which includes the full bonnet, full fenders, and complete bumper bar. There are a few different methods used to install paint protection film.
The first one is called bulk application whereby the installer lays a large piece of film on the bonnet, fenders, and bumper bar, squeegee out the application solution and then trims off the excess film. The installer would proceed to cut/trim the paint protection film on the vehicle’s body using a Stanley knife. Using this method the risk of damage to the paint is increased, this is commonly associated with cheaper and less experienced installers. This is not the preferred method of installation used by Protec. We don’t know if you could imagine what the consequence of cutting through the film would be and it may not be known till the paint protection film is replaced or removed.
Protec uses a computer-based cutting system that loads the templates designed for the vehicle, which cuts the film using the computer and this allows the installer to install the paint protection film to the vehicle specifications to fit perfectly. The advantage of this system is that no knife is used to cut on the vehicle. Protec’s new Paint Protection Film combines the best-in-class durability and clarity not previously available in the market. With its very low surface energy, Protec’s PPF sheds contaminants that would otherwise stain or yellow conventional films. In addition, the clear coat employs special elastomeric polymers that “heal” over time eliminating swirl marks and other fine scratches without having to do anything.
This product carries a 5-year warranty against, yellowing, cracking, peeling, staining, and hazing, covering both film and labor. Protec’s PPF is truly the most revolutionary Paint Protection Film ever invented!
