The Top 5 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Paint Protection Film
At RMA Car Care, we understand that your car is not just a mode of transportation; it's a reflection of your personality, a symbol of your hard work, and a source of pride. And so protecting and preserving your vehicle's exterior is of the utmost importance. That's where Paint Protection Film (PPF) comes into play. To help you better understand how PPF can benefit your car, we've compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about PPF and provided in-depth answers.
1. What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint Protection Film, also known as PPF or clear bra, is a clear, thermoplastic urethane film applied to the exterior surfaces of vehicles. Its primary function is to safeguard your car's paint from a range of potential damages, such as stone chips, road debris, insect splatters, and minor abrasions. PPF acts as an invisible armour, protecting your vehicle's finish while keeping it looking as sleek and attractive as ever.
2. How does PPF work?
PPF works by absorbing and dispersing the impact energy from various environmental elements. When a rock or debris strikes the film, PPF takes the hit, preventing your car's paint from getting scratched or chipped. Additionally, PPF has self-healing properties, meaning that it can repair minor scratches and swirl marks when exposed to heat, such as sunlight or warm water.
3. Will PPF alter the appearance of my car?
One of the most common concerns among car owners is whether applying PPF will alter the appearance of their vehicles. High-quality PPF, especially when professionally installed, is virtually invisible. It fully retains the original glossy finish of your car. Whether you opt for full coverage or partial protection, your car's aesthetics remain unchanged.
4. How long does PPF last, and is it durable?
The longevity of PPF varies depending on factors such as the brand and quality of the film. On average, high-quality PPF can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years or more with proper care. Our PPF is of the highest quality and we guarantee it for 10 years. PPF is designed to withstand the challenges of daily driving, exposure to sunlight, extreme temperatures, and harsh weather conditions. Routine cleaning and occasional waxing can further extend its lifespan, ensuring long-term protection for your vehicle.
5. Can I wash and wax my car with PPF?
Maintaining a car with PPF is straightforward. You can wash and wax your vehicle just as you normally would with PPF in place. It is recommended to use gentle car wash soap and microfibre towels to prevent scratching the film. While waxing is not mandatory, it can enhance the gloss of your car's finish and provide extra protection to the PPF. It's essential to avoid abrasive polishes or compounds, as they can damage the film.
6. Can I install PPF myself, or should I seek professional installation?
While some DIY PPF kits are available, professional installation is essential for the best results. Experienced installers possess the necessary skills, tools, and expertise to ensure a precise and seamless application. DIY installation can be challenging, and mistakes may lead to visible imperfections or, in the worst-case scenario, damage to your car's paint. To fully benefit from the protective qualities of PPF, it's advisable to entrust the installation to professionals.
