Automotive paint protection film, or clear bra, is usually an optional extra when purchasing a new vehicle. It will most likely be recommended to you as a way to protect your car against scratches and chips. You may have shrugged it off as a non-necessity. But automotive paint protection film is a solid investment in keeping your car looking new. Paint protection is one of those things that pays off in the long run. You get to drive your car and enjoy your purchase while paint protection film does its thing almost invisibly. Your car’s paint remains pristine under the film. And should you decide to sell the car, you don’t have to lower pricing because of damage.
What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint protection film is is a transparent urethane film that preserves the quality of your vehicle’s paint job and prevents damage that occurs while you enjoy your vehicle. Paint protection film acts as a defense against chips and scratches caused by loose stones on the road, swirl marks from washing your vehicle, oxidation from UV exposure, and stains and scratches from environmental damage. Moreover, your car keeps its shine.
Once paint damage has been caused, paint protection film will not be able to correct the damage. But you can have paint correction done and then have paint protection film installed so no additional damage is done.
Paint protection film is high-impact resistant so any rocks and road debris will not cause damage. The film is made from thermoplastic urethane and therefore is resistant to corrosion and acidic stains such as bird droppings, bug splatter and acid rain. Protection from UV rays means that your paint will not fade from constant sun exposure. The top layer of the film, if you choose a high quality film such as those from 3M, is made up of self-healing elastomeric polymers. These polymers will assume their natural shape when any damage is inflicted to the body of your vehicle, such as light scratches. The film absorbs the impact and returns to its state prior to the occurrence.
3M Paint Protection Film can be applied to the entire vehicle or to the areas that take the brunt of the damage. Areas that can be covered are:
- Side Mirrors
- Full Hood or Partial Hood
- Full Fenders or Partial Fenders
- Rear Quarter Panel
- A Pillars
When paint protection film is installed professionally by Window Tint USA in Pompano Beach, FL, the vehicle’s body is prepped to remove any silicone residue or other particles that might cause bumps once the film is applied. A solution is sprayed onto the area where the film will be placed, and then the film is secured into a permanent position. Air bubbles are removed and heat is applied in order to set the film. Without this heating, the film will naturally return to its original shape which would result in lifting and peeling. After application, paint protection film is invisible and will not affect the clarity nor the depth of your vehicles original paint.
Paint protection film is the most comprehensive method in keeping your car looking good as new. It will prevent the stresses associated with trying to keep your car in perfect condition and will give you the freedom to use your car as intended without damaging its beauty.
