What is Paint Protection Film and The Benefits

Paint protection film, also known as clear bra or PPF, is a thin, transparent film that is applied to the exterior surfaces of a vehicle to protect the paint from scratches, chips, and other damage. Here are some of the key benefits of using paint protection film:

  • Protection against road debris: Paint protection film is designed to protect your vehicle’s paint from chips and scratches caused by rocks, stones, and other debris that can be kicked up by other vehicles on the road.

  • Preserves the appearance: By preventing damage to the paint, paint protection film helps to maintain the appearance of your vehicle. This can help to maintain its value over time and make it easier to sell if you decide to do so in the future.

  • Easy maintenance: Paint protection film is easy to clean and maintain. It can be washed and waxed just like the rest of your vehicle’s exterior, and it doesn’t require any special treatment or cleaning products.

  • Self-healing properties: Many paint protection films have self-healing properties, which means that minor scratches and scuffs will disappear on their own over time. This can help to keep your vehicle looking its best without the need for frequent touch-ups.

  • UV protection: Paint protection film also provides protection against the harmful effects of UV rays, which can cause the paint to fade and lose its shine over time.

  • Resale value: By protecting the paint and preserving the appearance of your vehicle, paint protection film can help to maintain its resale value. This can be especially beneficial if you plan to sell your vehicle in the future.

Overall, paint protection film is an excellent investment for anyone who wants to keep their vehicle looking its best and protect it from damage. Whether you’re driving on the highway or parked in a busy parking lot, paint protection film can provide the peace of mind you need to enjoy your vehicle without worrying about damage to the paint.


Why Do I Need PPF in for my Vehicle

In and around Vancouver, even specifically in Richmond, paint protection film is particularly important due to the harsh weather conditions and road hazards that can cause damage to vehicles.

Vancouver has a very wet and rainy climate, which means that the roads can become slick and dangerous. This can lead to an increase in debris on the road, such as rocks, sand, and gravel, which can be kicked up by other vehicles and cause damage to the paint on your car. Additionally, Vancouver is located in an area that is prone to weather fluctuations, and wind conditions, which can lead to damage to the road surface, causing even more debris to be present on the roads. It only takes that one trip on the any highway, heading up to Whistler via Sea to Sky, or Kelowna and interior BC via the Hwy 1, to get chips on the front end!

By installing paint protection film on your vehicle in Vancouver, you can help to protect it from these types of hazards and maintain its appearance and resale value. The film is designed to be nearly invisible, so it won’t affect the look of your vehicle, but it will provide a layer of protection that can save you from costly repairs down the road.

Additional Options

At Speed Projects Lab, we are able to plot any XPEL Paint Protection Film Pre-Kits at our facility to make sure we have everything you want protected. Below are some of the more popular options, please let us know which area(s) you want protected and we can put together a custom quote for you.

  • Head & Fog Lights – head lights are expensive now! We left this as an option as some vehicle head lights have a protective coating on it and which may cause delamination when removing film.
  • Rocker Panels (side skirts) – a high risk area for rock chips caused from tires
  • Rear Luggage Area – an area that is often scuffed/scratched by moving luggage, sport bags, or equipment in and out of the trunk.
  • Door Cups – an area where that is usually forgotten by easily scratched from opening the doors (take a look at your vehicle next time!)
  • Doors
  • A-Pillar – A forward vehicle facing area that can get rock chips. Not as likely as front bumper, but can still get some over time.
  • Partial Roof – Front portion of roof above front windshield. Especially important for all vehicle that sits low like the Porsches.
  • Door Edge Guard
  • OEM Impact Area replacements – some vehicles are equipped with OEM impact area protective film. The film used by vehicle manufacturers usually aren’t the highest of quality and tends to turn yellow very quickly.  XPEL Ultimate Plus is guaranteed 10 year against yellowing!

XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS (XUPL) is a high performance, self-adhesive, clear-coated polyurethane film designed to protect automotive paint, and other surfaces, from harmful effects of stone chips and abrasion. The clear coat employs special elastomeric polymers that allow light scratches in the surface to “heal” over time, eliminating the need for frequent polishing to maintain a just installed appearance. XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS (XUPL) has an ultra-clear high performance acrylic adhesive which has excellent adhesion on a broad range of surfaces, while resisting disturbances during installation. The adhesive is formulated to resist delamination and will not damage paint or leave behind residue if removed.

Contaminants like bug splatter, bird droppings, sap and road tar wipe off XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS super-slick surface with a cloth, while scuffs and light scratches in the surface of the film disappear within minutes in the heat of the sun or the warmth of your garage—leaving your car pristine and the protective film like new.

And this level of protection comes without compromise. The mirror smooth finish of XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS ensures that no unwanted texture, commonly referred to as “orange-peel,” is added to the appearance of your car, leaving the protected surface indistinguishable from the factory paint. Professional installation by one of our network of factory trained installers ensures exact alignment around surface features such as air inlets, parking sensors, headlamp washers and other design elements, while the film along the perimeter of each panel is wrapped around the edges for a truly invisible barrier against the hazards awaiting you on the road.

Even the film’s adhesive is superior. The enhanced workability of XPEL’s adhesive allows the film to be contoured around the most complex surfaces without distortion—which means you show off a perfect finish, not seams, wrinkles, and ripples. XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS also comes with a full 10-year warranty against yellowing, discoloration, peeling, cracking and hazing. If it fails, we’ll replace it—labor included
