Frequently Asked Questions

What is paint protection film?

In fact, PPF enhances your vehicle's look by shielding it from various minor damages like stone chips and scratches that can build up over time. Furthermore, removing PPF is a harmless process that leaves your vehicle's paint intact and unscathed.

How is paint protection film installed?

First, we’ll carry out a maintenance wash followed by a clay bar decontamination, then a one stage polish (for front end and full coverage packages only) finishing off with panel surface preparation.Then we apply the Film using a specially formulated gel solution – we use a range of squeegees to ensure that there are no creases or bubbles after application and that no corners or edges of PPF are visible.

Can I wax or apply ceramic coatings to PPF?

Yes, you can add a ceramic coating or wax over PPF. Some films come pre-coated, but adding a thicker ceramic coating can be good in some instances. Also, for older film, cleaning it up and adding a ceramic coating can rejuvenate the film and improve its looks and cleaning ease.

How effective is paint protection film on modern paints?

Modern paints are an improvement over classic paints in that they usually have more than one stage of paint and include reliable clear coats. Oftentimes, these original paint coats are baked on at the factory making them rather strong and resilient. Compared to many single stage classic paint jobs, this can make them better and longer lasting. However, the movement towards being more eco-friendly has also made some modern paint more susceptible to scratches and rock chips. A layer of paint protection film adds an amazing level of protection for your original paint no matter the manufacturer. It really is a no-brainer. It’s going to protect your paint.

How long after a spray repair should I apply paint protection film?

It would be required to refer to the paint technical data sheet which will specify the recommended waiting period before waxed or vinyls are applied to the paint surface. You would have to refer back to the bodyshop for this information.
