Types Of Paint Protection Film
Paint protection film is a vital asset to keeping the surface condition of your vehicle in the best shape possible. We can outfit your vehicle with a variety of customized clear bra or PPF kits, tailored specifically to the body shape of your vehicle and designed to cover every available inch of paintwork. Starting with the most basic entry-level protection, and moving all the way up to a full-body PPF wrap or completely custom fit, you can choose the film finish, matte, high-gloss, or color PPF, and coverage that meets your paint protection needs.
XPEL STEALTH ™ Paint Protection Film offers a sleek satin or matte finish, which gives a distinctive, often luxurious look to a vehicle while providing the same level of protection as traditional glossy PPFs. Unlike traditional glossy paint finishes, matte finishes have a non-reflective, velvety appearance.
Optically Clear PPF
High gloss paint protection film adheres tightly to a vehicle’s surface and acts as a sacrificial layer, absorbing the impact of small debris, road grime, and minor abrasions. The film also offers UV resistance, preventing the paint from fading or discoloring due to sun exposure.
Color Change PPF
Colored paint protection film (PPF) is similar to our clear paint protection film but has the additional feature of being available in various colors. It’s designed to provide both protection and customization options for the vehicle’s paintwork.

With self-healing capabilities, paint protection film erases small scratches & rock chips leaving your car, truck, SUV or EV vehicle looking its very best. Paint protection film can be applied in a partial or full wrap, depending on your paint protection needs. With a partial PPF wrap, you are able to protect high-traffic areas like bumpers, rocker panels, side panels, and more. It is also important to note that the quality of the clear bra, used along with the installation process, both play a huge role in the overall level of paint protection & finished vehicle aesthetic. Utilizing the services of an advanced certified installer, along with paint protection film from reputable high-quality manufacturers, ensures you are left with the best paint protection film installation imaginable.
Paint protection film is the most durable, long-lasting form of vehicle paint protection. Self-healing technology ensures any scratches or chips repair themselves while also leaving your vehicle looking its very best. Ease of maintenance and the ability to change the finish of your vehicle are even more added benefits. With high gloss and matte/satin finish options you can change the look of your vehicle without ever harming the original factory paint.

There are a number of factors that contribute to the cost of having paint protection film applied to your vehicle. Some of these factors include the type of clear bra package you choose if it’s a partial or full wrap, type of finish you are looking to achieve, condition of the vehicle prior to PPF installation, and quality of film used. While it may seem enticing to go with the cheapest option you find, keep in mind that you always get what you pay for. High-quality film installed by advanced certified PPF professionals ensures your film will last for years to come while also leaving your vehicle looking its very best. All packages can be custom to your specific budget!
To help ensure maximum performance of PPF, periodic care and attention is recommended. Avoid the use of automatic car washers and power washes as they could cause film lifting. It is best practice to wait 3 days after installation of paint protection film before washing your car. Hand wash with rinseless style soap, water and wipe with a soft dry cloth when needed for best results. A touchless car wash system is approved by the manufacturer. In a case of any edge lifting when these instructions are followed, we will trim any film needing attention.
We recommend a Ceramic coating maintenance spray for best performance on the wrap and ease of protection. Ideally – it would be recommended to do a Ceramic coating over to help ensure and increase the life and appearance of your clear – self healing paint protection wrap.
To help maintain maximum performance of paint protection film, periodic care and attention is recommended. Hand wash with soap and water when needed. Micro trim and adjustments to your wrap is normal and free of charge. We recommend a 30-day checkup after paint protection film is installed to make any adjustments after inspection.
PPF is a film applied directly to original paint in select areas or on your entire car by professional installers. It is a “wet installation” similar to window film using a soap and water mixture to align the PPF before installing it into place. The dry out time for the film can vary from 30-60 days for moisture to disappear.
Each PPF product features a scientifically formulated top coat. This top coat protects the urethane against surface damage, while the self-healing surface repairs the majority of scratches utilizing the heat of the sun, a warm body panel, engine heat or warm water.
Ceramic coatings do not offer the same level of rock chip and surface protection as paint protection film. Most paint protection films have a 8mil thickness which far exceeds our ceramic coating products thickness. Both play a beneficial role in car care and longevity for your vehicle. PPF and ceramic coatings both offer premium vehicle protection, but also bring to the table different protective properties. PPF has self healing capabilities making it the best choice when it comes to protection against rock chips, scratches and other damage caused by road debris and weather related elements. Ceramic coatings, on the other hand, provide you with an intense gloss and hydrophobicity meaning that water spots, bug spatter, and grime repel right off. This makes vehicle maintenance simple and easy without ever compromising gloss & shine. When both PPF with a ceramic coating product is paired. you get the best paint protection scenario for your vehicle. Together the two prevent oxidation and acid damage leaving you with the ultimate protective barrier, as well as an intense gloss and enhanced vehicle aesthetic. We also give a discount when both products are done at the same time with our company.
