CLEAR BRA / PAINT PROTECTION FILM (PPF)

AN INTRODUCTION TO

CAR PAINT PROTECTION FILM FOR YOUR VEHICLE

Paint Protection Film or PPF is a clear and thick layer of thermoplastic urethane installed on your car’s body to protect its original paint from deep scratches, stone chips, and contaminants.
Car paint protection films that Detail Lab provides in Walnut Creek can be applied to your entire vehicle, including the painted surfaces, headlights, and mirror covers. The PPF that we use enhances the appearance of your paint finish whilst adding extreme protection.
PPF is the first line of defence that you get against UV, bird droppings, scratches, stone chips, harsh cleaners, gasoline, tree sap, etc. Along with all this, you also get to keep your car looking glossy and cleaner for longer.
We use accurate computer software with our in-house cutting plotter to cut patterns that are fitted to your vehicle without having to put a knife to the car!

THE ADVANTAGES OF AUTOMOTIVE PAINT PROTECTION FILM (PPF)

Keep Your Car Looking New: A layer of PPF prevents your car’s paint from stone chips, fading and gives it a polished glossy appearance all the time. This finish remains a lot longer in comparison to any other paint protection method.

Retain Resale Value: A good-looking car will always command a higher price. Having a layer of PPF on your car helps maintain those looks and prevents minor damage like front-end stone chip damage and scratches that could decrease the value of the car.

Easy Cleaning: PPF repels dust, water, and even certain organic matter. With a PPF coating on your car, you can have your vehicle looking clean with a quick wipe down.

Protection: Many do not notice it, but UV rays can harm the car’s paint by way of premature fading. An auto paint protection film will negate the effects of UV rays on your car. It will also protect your car from chemicals, scratches, stone chips, nicks, and even burns. PPF is an effective invisible vehicle paint protection defense shield. There are different types of clear paint protection films that you can choose from us at Detail Lab. Just contact our team for more options.

Save On Repairs: One of the biggest advantages of the paint protection film is that you don’t have to spend money frequently on minor repairs like bumper resprays for accidental grazes or stone chip damage.

How to remove paint protection film from your vehicle?

We only recommend professional removal of PPF as damage to paint work may occur. If you are curious about the process or planning to remove your car paint protection film yourself, here are some useful tips:

Avoid a Quick Strip

Do not make the mistake of trying to peel off the PPF film in one shot like a band-aid. Work on small sections at a time.

Use Heat

The most effective way to remove the PPF off your car is to use a steamer, heat gun or a blow dryer. Point the heat device on to the area to lightly heat to approximately 60-degrees and from a distance to avoid burning it. This will help in peeling off larger sections more effectively. Start with a small section lightly pulling at a 45-degree angle.

Use Adhesive Remover

As soon as you are done taking off the PPF, use an adhesive remover to clean the surface. A quick rub should be enough to remove the layer of glue that was used to stick the paint protection film.

Wipe & Wax

Use a microfiber towel to wipe away the adhesive remover and other remains on the surface. After that, apply a wax or sealant for some interim protection for the surface.
If you find this process taxing, then do not worry. The experts at CRYSTAL CLEAR WRAP can have your old car’s paint protection film removed in a jiffy.

ABOUT CRYSTAL CLEAR WRAPS PAINT PROTECTION FILM

Paint Protection Film contains a proprietary top-coat. This top coat protects the urethane against surface scratches. The majority of surface scratches will self-heal when exposed to heat – sun, warm panel (motor running), warm water, etc. We demonstrate this with a copper wire brush to simulate surface scratches that will self-heal such as surface dirt, sand, salt, etc.
Our Paint Protection Film is protected against yellowing. Our top coat protects the Paint Protection Film against harmful solvents that are in gas, oil, bird droppings, car exhaust, etc. that can absorb into the film and discolor it.
No. The area protected with our Paint Protection Film will fade at the same rate as the unprotected area.
You can wash, wax and care for your car just like you normally would. Whatever vehicle you drive, a sedan, SUV, ute or truck, our Paint Protection Film provides the best option to help keep your vehicle in prime condition.
