What Is Paint Protection Film and Why You Need It?

Protecting the paint on your car is a vital part of owning or leasing an automobile. You want your car to be ageless. To look as shiny as the day you drove it off the lot, regardless of wear, tear, and weather. There’s only one way to do this: by purchasing and applying paint protection film over your vehicle. This is also known as PPF or a “clear bra.”

Will my PPF look perfect?

‍PPF installation is very difficult, time consuming, very intricate, and costly. The material isn’t cheap and if there is dirt, hair or silvering (film that is stretched too much) means that piece has to be replaced.

Bubbles, lift lines, and water under the film are common occurrences with every install. Lift lines are where a section has been laid then has to be lifted to remove an air bubble or speck of dirt. Air bubbles will evaporate over several days (or weeks, depending on weather) when the film is exposed to heat. If air bubbles are still on the film, the only way to remove it is to suck the air out with a needle or fill them with soap and water. Expect these things to happen right after a PPF installation.

Most reputable installers will strive for perfection. Unless PPF is installed in an enclosed room with “space-age” filtration system and not a speck of dust, there will be some degree of dust contamination. Pre-existing flaws such as scratches, rock chips, debris in the clear coat, misaligned body panels, sanding marks are much more noticeable and magnified after PPF is applied. What may look like a speck of dust between the paint and the PPF, is actually dirt nibs in the clear coat. I have seen Ferraris and Lamborghinis with hair, fingerprints and dirt, painted over it.

In most cases, the condition of your vehicle also plays a huge part in a clean PPF installation. A swirl-free, scratch-free, rock-chip free, close to perfect finish is desirable. Even if your vehicle is brand new, it may have swirls, holograms, defects in the paint, minor scratches and other imperfections that needs to be removed. So the first step in PPF installation is Paint Correction or any type of defect removal.

 

Paint Protection Film

It’s important to note that PPF is not a bullet-proof protection. However, it’s the closest you can get to it for your vehicle. With the use of an expert installer like Moojo Auto Spa, you can rest assured the film will be applied professionaly. Do not try to do this on your own. This protective film has many benefits, including but not limited to the following:

 

● Protection from bug splatter

● Protection from bird droppings

● Protection from dirt

● Protection from water drops

● Protection from discoloration with sun and aging

● Durability for paint

● Stain-resistant

● Keeps paint from yellowing with time

 

While these elements will still affect your car, with the clear bra they will not penetrate or damage the paint. They will be easily cleaned off with a car wash and the overall coat of paint on the car will remain intact.

 

Areas for PPF

While it is most beneficial to coat the entire car, you can opt to only have certain portions covered with the PPF:

● Full Wrap – covers the entire automobile where painted.

● Full Front – the front of the car including bumper, hood, fenders, and mirrors.

● Partial Front – the front of the car including bumper, the edge of the hood, fenders and mirrors.

● Rocker Panels – the lowest area on the left and right sides of the vehicle between the wheels.
