HOW PAINT PROTECTION FILM ACTUALLY WORKS

When someone says self-healing, it sounds like they are talking about an alien substance that was discovered in a hidden cave in the middle of the deep blue abyss. We hate to take the mystery and wonder out of self-healing, but its no alien matter. (or is it?)

What is self-healing paint protection film? Well, it is exactly that. It is a film that when applied over the surface of your vehicle’s exterior, provides a barrier between the car’s paint and the world. The self-healing feature is somewhat of a magic trick and is one that will leave spectators in awe. 

Let’s face it, there is no way to completely avoid scratching your car’s paint. Doing something as innocent as washing your car creates swirls that over time dim your cars brilliant appearance. Over the years, dust, pollen, bird droppings and even hard water will cause the paint to lose its shine and keep you from looking upon it with the same pride and admiration that you were once giddy over.

But it doesn’t have to be this way! 

XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS Paint Protection Film is the “Fountain of Youth” for the exterior of your car. It’s like sporting a toupee and everyone thinking it is your real hair! 😉 Once applied the film is virtually invisible and unless someone gets right up on it and knows what to look for, they won’t be able to tell that the film is there.

Now that we know the science behind paint protection film and what makes it do what it does.

(remember the layers? the Polyester Release Liner, then the Acrylic Adhesive, which is under the layer that gives the film impact resistance called Polyurethane and finally the harder clear coat layer that keeps the yuck out so there is never any discoloration or contaminants seeping into the protection film). 

We also learned that our eyes fool us, and the scratches that happen on the film aren’t really scratches but a rearrangement of the surface, and the surface wants to go back to where it was before you scratched it! (mind blown). No matter how this trickery happens, the truth remains that Paint Protection Film is awesome and is a worthwhile way to protect your investment. 

3 Reason's to Feel Good About Your Decision To Put Clear Car Bra on Your Vehicle

CHEAPER THAN PAYING FOR A NEW PAINT JOB

Investing in XPEL Clear Bra now will definitely save you headache and money down the road. The cost of a paint job will cost you anywhere from $1,000 and $20,000. But let's get real most people won’t be going for the cheapest or the most expensive paint job. What we are saying is repainting your vehicle with quality car paint that provides good results will cost between $2,500 and $5,000. Unfortunately, when you get back on the road, you still won't be protected. That’s why XPEL Clear Bra Protection is such a wise investment. You get protection and don’t have to worry about expensive paint jobs or shady paint shops.

A TRANSFORMATION FOR YOUR CAR

The beauty of self-healing paint protection is that it can literally give your car a brand new look. XPEL has two different types of protective films; ULTIMATE PLUS and STEALTH. ULTIMATE PLUS is the protection you want if you are drawn to a more glossy finish. STEALTH has the same self-healing features as ULTIMATE PLUS but has a satin finish.

You can use STEALTH on your gloss paint and ULTIMATE on your matte paint to completely changing the appearance of your vehicle. It’s like having a new car, but without that new car payment. Awesome, right?

HOW DOES SELF HEALING PPF WORK

INCREASE THE RESALE VALUE OF YOUR CAR

Can you imagine selling your 10-year-old car that still has perfect paint like it was born yesterday? Even if you haven’t gotten the oil changed in the last 50,000 miles and the inside smells like yesterdays fish sticks, it sure will look pretty on the outside. (And you can't deny that beauty counts for something).
