What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint Protection Film, or PPF, is like an invisible shield, enhancing the appearance of your vehicle while helping to preserve its value. These films are flexible, thick, strong, and invisible. Defend your vehicle’s vulnerable areas against abrasions, nicks, scratches from insects, small road debris, and winter sand and salt for year-round protection.
Paint Protection Film is perfect for vehicle hoods, fenders, mirrors, and front bumper to protect against flying road debris. Cover your vehicle’s back bumper, around door handles, and other areas subject to heavy use and possible damage.
PPF / Clear Bra Technology
Paint Protection Film (PPF) has come a long way from the early days of what people remember as black leather bras or “yellow” and “orange-peeled” clear bras. Modern technology allows the film to offer maximum protection for your car while still looking great.
Llumar Platinum Paint Protection Film is self-healing where scratches can be fixed by the heat of the sun, and comes with a 10 Year Warranty to make sure you don’t have to worry about it turning yellow or cracking like many other PPF films will do. There are many reasons to protect your car with Paint Protection Film, but there are three main reasons why some people do it on every car they own.
– Protect from rock chips, road debris, etc
– Keep your car looking like it did the day you bought it
– 10 year warranty
– Self-Healing properties
– Factory Certified Installation
– Customizable coverage
Protect Your Vehicle’s Finish
We use LLumar Paint Protection film, which is approved by all major automotive manufacturers and is a clear-coated 8 Mil urethane film that is adhered with high performance, pressure sensitive adhesive that will ensure long-term adhesion.
Our paint protection film can resist impacts up to 120 miles per hour and is a computerized design, to ensure an exact fit. There are no mechanical attachments or unsightly guards; just clear, superior protection!
What Paint Protection Film “Clear Bra” Can Do for You
Aside from your home, a vehicle is the biggest purchase most people ever make, and we want to help protect that investment. People will always judge the condition of your car based on how the paint looks, and we are seeing a lot of people get the cost of their Paint Protection back when they sell the car.
A lot of people will even pay a premium for it. When you spend tens of thousands for a car, the goal is to keep it looking like it did the day you bought it. If you didn’t buy your car covered in rock chips, why would you want it to have them after a short period of time?
Protecting the windshield has become even more important with the rising cost of replacements and to keep the integrity of the seals around it. The average windshield used to be a few hundred dollars to replace, but with all of the electronics that are built into them now, the cost is in the thousands.
In addition to this we have noticed that the small pits or “star gazing” effect is much more prominent on new cars due to environmentally safe materials not holding up as well as the old-school hard glass. On top of this, if it does get replaced the factory seals are broken and that can lead to other issues. Especially since a large part of the structural integrity of the car relies on the windshield.
The best way to protect this vital piece of your car is with a windshield skin. We have different options that include Clearplex for the daily drivers or the two-layer Bray race skin for track cars. Both come with an 18-month warranty.
Llumar’s Platinum Paint Protection Film provides the painted area of your car with a virtually-clear, 6 mil thick shield against rock chips and other road hazards. Just like a phone case, it is there to help protect against unexpected incidents that will damage your vehicle.
Without paint protection, it will cost you money and time without a vehicle to fix a chip or scratch to make it look like before, but will still be susceptible to it happening again. Not only does it protect against nicks and scratches, it has Hydroguard technology to provide excellent resistance to bugs and other hazards like tree sap and tar that can stick to and stain your paint, making it easier to keep your car clean. The first chip or blemish always hurts the worst, so it is best to protect your car as early as possible.
Peace of Mind
Throughout the day your car goes through a lot of abuse that we don’t even know about until we see the repercussions of the damage later. We might hear the larger things that hit the car as we drive, making it obvious, but there are hundreds of little rocks, sand, and debris flying at your car every minute your car is on the road. And it’s not just while driving that PPF protects you, since a lot of damages occur while parked.
Many of our customers wrap more than the front of their car to protect against things like door dings and scratches from people opening their door next to your car, purses scratching the side of your car when someone is walking between cars, and rogue shopping carts that are attracted to your car. Paint Protection Film lets you focus on more important things rather than what’s happening to your car.
Llumar Platinum Paint Protection Film is made to be virtually clear, but also has a brilliance effect like a well-cut diamond that can bring out the best qualities in your paint. We have wrapped 10+ year old cars, and the pearl in the paint shines as bright as a fresh paint job.
In addition to that, we have seen light scratches disappear when the film is placed over them. One of our customers’ favorite features of the Llumar Platinum self-healing film is the elimination of swirl marks that are caused just by washing your car. Without Self-Healing Paint Protection film the swirls will keep coming back, but with it, your car’s paint always looks its best.
