What to do if you find any damage to your PPF

It can be discouraging to find damage on your car's paint protection film. To stop the damaged area from getting worse, quick and accurate action is needed.

If you notice any chips, scratches, or other problems with the Paint Protection Film, a thorough inspection is required. Examine the affected areas thoroughly, making note of the damage's depth, extent, and individual locations.

It is important to consult a reputed repair centre or a trustworthy technician that specialises in Paint Protection Film application. Their knowledge is essential for precisely assessing the damage and figuring out whether it's minor or has to be attended to right away. Hold conversations to investigate possible restoration choices according to their evaluation. By applying heat to the film's self-healing characteristics, minor problems may be resolved, but more significant damage might necessitate partial or complete replacement of the film.

If relevant, think about going over the terms and conditions of your Paint Protection Film warranty. Certain warranties include specific damage or faults that entitle you to replacements or necessary help within the terms of the guarantee. Making educated judgements about repairs or replacements is facilitated by having a clear understanding of the warranty coverage.

Avoiding DIY repairs is strongly advised as this could make the problem worse or jeopardise the integrity of the movie. Hiring specialists with particular knowledge to handle the situation will guarantee that the harm is properly handled and resolved.

As soon as the best course of action is decided upon, set a timely date for the required repairs. Postponing repairs may increase the likelihood of more damage by leaving the underlying paintwork vulnerable to elements such as moisture, UV rays, or debris.

While you’re waiting for repairs to be completed, keep up with your vehicle’s routine maintenance. Clean the affected area gently with recommended cleaning products to avoid building up debris that could further damage the Film. Don’t use abrasive materials or harsh chemicals that could damage the Film. Take extra precautions after repairs or replacements to protect your vehicle from further damage. Techniques like applying ceramic coating or protective films to vulnerable areas can help protect the surface of your vehicle.

It may also be wise to include regular Paint Protection Film inspections in your vehicle maintenance schedule. Regular inspections can help you spot any new damage or wear early on, allowing you to make timely repairs to maintain the film’s protection properties. Documentation is also important. Keeping accurate records of damage, repairs, and replacements is beneficial for warranty claims. It also makes it easier to communicate with professionals about your film’s history.
