Paint Protection Film Has Come A Long Way

Paint Protection Film Has Come A Long Way

Paint protection film, also known as clear bra, is a clear, thin film that is applied to the surface of a car’s paint to protect it from damage. It is made of a tough, durable polyurethane material that is resistant to scratches, chips, and other types of damage. It even has a self healing layer that makes light scratches disappear when it sits in the sun or by applying warm water.

One of the main benefits of paint protection film is that it helps to preserve the appearance of a car’s paint job. It acts as a barrier between the paint and the elements, protecting it from road debris, harsh weather, maybe the road crew in your state tar and chips the roads like here in Pennsylvania, and other factors that can cause damage.¬†

This can help to keep a car looking newer and keep its value for longer!

Paint protection film is also a great way to protect against minor damage from everyday driving. It can help to reduce the appearance of small chips and scratches or even improper washing techniques.

Installation of paint protection film is typically done by a professional, as it requires precise measurement and cutting to fit the specific contours of a car. At Blackout we use both plotter cut patterns and bulk installs performed by our trained technicians. The film is applied using a strong adhesive and is virtually invisible once installed.

However it can be removed and replaced if need be. Lesser quality films than the XPEL brand we use, often have an outdated technology that didn’t allow for clean removability. XPEL films have clean removability and a 10 year manufacturer warranty against failing prematurely. Here is a video of us covering it in detail.

Overall, paint protection film is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to preserve the appearance of their car’s paint job. It is a durable, effective solution that can help to protect against damage and keep a car looking its best.
