Paint Protection Film Service

Paint Protection Film OverviewInstalled on new and used vehicles, 3M Paint Protection Film, also known as “clear bra,” is a nearly invisible film that is applied to the painted surfaces of your car (hood, fender, bumper, mirrors) to protect them from road debris such as rocks, bugs, salt, etc. Made of a 6 mil (.006”) thick clear urethane plastic (8 mil when you count the adhesive), 3M Paint Protection Film was initially designed to protect helicopter blades from debris during the Vietnam War. Since then, it has been used by various auto manufacturers and NASCAR teams to protect painted surfaces from rock chips. Maintain the appearance of your vehicle and enhance its trade-in value by protecting its paint with 3M Paint Protection Film.

 

Car Protection Pros offers 5 lines of PPF: 3M Scotchgard&trade Pro Series (Best); Xpel Ultimate (Best); 3M Scotchgard™ (Better); SunTek (Better) and 3M VentureShield™ (Good). All five can be installed using 3M patterns customized to your vehicle for a perfect fit.

 

 

3M SCOTCHGARD™ PRO SERIES (BEST)

3M Scotchgard Pro Series represents the latest technology in paint protection film. The unique technology that separates this product from its competitors is a true testimony to 3M’s innovation. Industry-leading clarity (less orange peel) and self-healing and stain-resistant characteristics, 3M Scotchgard Pro Series is designed to give you years of protection and performance without ongoing maintenance. Unlike your car’s paint, when 3M Scotchgard Pro Series is scratched, the scratches virtually disappear, keeping your film looking newer longer. Virtually nothing can protect your vehicle better from scratches, stains, and chips than 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film Pro Series. It’s truly the ultimate protection for paint.

XPEL ULTIMATE (BEST)

XPEL's Ultimate Paint Protection Film combines best-in-class durability and clarity not previously available in the market. With its very low surface energy, XPEL ULTIMATE sheds contaminants that would otherwise stain or yellow conventional films. In addition, the clear coat employs special elastomeric polymers that "heal" over time eliminating swirl marks and other fine scratches without having to do anything.

3M SCOTCHGARD™ (BETTER)

3M Scotchgard is an 8 mil thick film that installs with orange peel due to its clear-coat. That means you can treat it like you treat your paint. 3M Scotchgard does not require ongoing maintenance. However because 3M Scotchgard is not manufactured 60” wide, in many cases you can not have full hood coverage without a seam.

SUNTEK FILM (BETTER)

PPF offers breakthrough technology for paint protection applications. Features and benefits include invisible protection from damage caused by rocks, salt, insects, and other road debris, a proprietary, self healing top-coat formulation that is scratch and crack resistant with a high-gloss finish, superior optical clarity, and easy installation with increased longevity.

3M VENTURESHIELD™ (GOOD)

3M VentureShield is an 8 mil thick top-coated paint protection film that installs without any orange peel, giving your car a glossy look. Because it is not clear-coated, 3M VentureShield requires ongoing cleaning to maintain its clear and glossy appearance.
