Your Car’s Secret Weapon

Gone are the days of leather car bras. Paint protection film is the ultimate car protector, a transparent thermoplastic urethane film that’s tough-as-nails. Paint protection film provides years of lasting protection
for your entire car – hood, bumpers, mirrors, door handles, roof, trunk lid, and pretty much anywhere else vulnerable to damage. With chemicals that deflect ultraviolet rays and inhibit fading, paint protection film is manufactured by well-known and trusted companies – including 3M. Quite simply, paint protection film is ideal for car owners looking to protect their valuable investment.

The Dos

How should you care for your paint protection film post-installation and beyond? Remember a few simple tips.

  • Avoid touching, washing, or waxing your car’s paint protection film for a few days after installation. You’ll want to even avoid driving – as much as possible.
  • Once it’s fully cured, clean and dust the paint protection film on a regular basis. Use a microfiber cloth and high-quality soap or shampoo to eliminate dirt, debris, and buildup.
  • Apply a light spray-on wax to the paint protection film at least once a month. Wax any areas not covered by the film every three months.

The Don’ts

Once you’ve installed paint protection film on your car, there are certain things to steer well clear of.

  • Avoid rough cleaners and degreasers, including powders and clay-based products. Throw out your rough towels, sponges, and paper towels.
  • Just say no to power buffers and high-pressure water hoses.
  • Don’t use excessive force or pressure when cleaning the paint protection film. And for Pete’s sake, don’t pick or scratch at the edges of the film.
