A Quick Guide to XPEL\’s Paint Protection Films


The Basics

Paint Protection Film (PPF) is the most comprehensive form of defense you can establish between your vehicle and all the things that can damage its paint and finish. PPF has a high-impact resistance that allows its application to protect your paint from chips and scratches caused by rocks and road debris. The urethane film is resistant to corrosion and acidic contaminants, meaning that it creates a line of defense from chemical stains and etching caused by bird droppings, bug splatter, and mineral deposits and acid rain. It does not oxidize with exposure to the sun, and will guard your paint from fading caused by UV rays.  When light scratches are inflicted in the film, it absorbs the damage and returns to the texture and properties it had before the incident.

Even though Paint Protection Films have many benefits, it is not a cure-all when it comes to keeping shiny cars shiny. There are rocks that can puncture Paint Protection Film. If bird droppings or bug splatter are allowed to sit on film for a long period of time, it can cause damage. After applying Paint Protection Film, you still have to wash your car. So PPF isn’t perfect. But it is the best way to keep your fine automobile looking its best for an extended period of time.
