The Era of Protection (Paint Protection Films)

Paint protection films have come a longer way than many realize. No longer are protected cars doomed to an obstructive and yellowing film for the sake of avoiding chips and scratches. With proper application techniques, newer films allow the possibility of perfect (and sustainable) clarity for the lifespan of the film.

An example of the consequences of improper application would be protected areas having a 'hazy' look to them - the result of over stretching the film to make it fit appropriately on the panel. This is avoided entirely with the use of XPEL's software to create and adjust the fittings of films; usage of their program allows extremely fine tuning to allow extra film for wrapping edges, machine created relief cuts to hug corners better, and custom coverage to meet the customers desires exactly.

For those who want the most, paint protection films are on the list of surfaces which can be ceramic coated. Of course, this is limited by the choice of ceramic coating (and enforces our choice to exclusively offer Opti-Coat Pro). While most ceramic coatings act as a layer on top of the surface, Opti-Coat bonds on a molecular level with the surface itself. This adds the benefit of chemical protection to your film choice, without losing the 'self-healing' capabilities of the film (other ceramic coatings which bond as layers on top of the film, do not move with the film, causing micro-fractures in the coating, and the film would appear damaged).

These benefits tied in with the ongoing development of the quality of film itself provides a chance for very high expectations for those who wish to not only protect their cars, but preserve a desired look for many years on any kind of paint finish.
