Frequently Asked Questions About Paint Protection Film
What is Paint Protection Film (PPF)?
PPF is a clear, durable film applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect its paint from scratches, chips, stains, and other types of surface damage. It acts as a protective barrier without altering the appearance of your vehicle.
How is PPF applied to my vehicle?
Our skilled technicians apply PPF using a meticulous process that begins with a thorough cleaning of your vehicle’s surface. The film is then precisely cut to fit your car’s dimensions and carefully applied, ensuring a seamless and bubble-free finish.
How long does the PPF application process take?
The time required for a PPF application varies depending on the coverage area and the complexity of your vehicle’s design. Typically, it can take anywhere from a few hours to several days.
Will PPF change the appearance of my vehicle?
No, PPF is virtually invisible and does not alter the color or design of your vehicle. It provides a glossy, clear protective layer that enhances your vehicle’s appearance while offering protection.
Can PPF be removed?
Yes, PPF can be safely removed without damaging the vehicle’s paint. However, we recommend having it removed professionally to ensure the best results.
How long does PPF last?
The lifespan of PPF depends on various factors, including environmental conditions and how the vehicle is used and maintained. Generally, PPF can last several years with proper care. STEK DynoShield PPF comes with a 10 year warranty.
Is PPF maintenance-intensive?
PPF requires minimal maintenance. Regular washing and occasional waxing are generally sufficient to keep it in good condition. We will provide specific care instructions upon installation.
Does PPF self-heal?
Yes, most high-quality PPFs, like the ones we use, have self-healing properties. Minor scratches and swirl marks can disappear with exposure to heat, such as sunlight or warm water.
Can I apply wax over PPF?
Yes, you can apply wax over PPF. However, ensure the wax does not contain any abrasive materials that could damage the film.
Will PPF protect my car from all types of damage?
While PPF provides excellent protection against most common types of surface damage like scratches and rock chips, it is not invincible. Severe impacts or scratches might still cause damage.
