You purchase a brand new car and you are scared of destroying the paint. Maybe you got a custom color that is really hard to find and incredibly valuable. Maybe you just can’t bear the thought of your ultra exotic vehicle getting destroyed from daily road hazards. That’s where paint protection film (PPF) comes in. 


How It Works

Paint protection film works just like traditional vinyl wrap, only it’s clear so there’s no added design. It’s meant to protect your car from life’s troubles, whether that be a hail storm, some rocks getting kicked up, or birds using your hood as a toilet. Installing PPF is one of the best decisions you can make in terms of preserving your vehicle’s appearance. 


When the film starts to yellow from UV rays you will grin at the thought of how much protection the film has given you. Your car’s paint sits perfectly unharmed underneath, and yet it looks the same as the day you  bought it. When it’s time to remove the film, Elite Vinyl Design recommends hiring a professional since PPF is a bit trickier than traditional vinyl to remove. This is simply due to the amount of glue used on PPF. But professionals know the proper way to remove them and won’t become impatient during the process. 


No proper removal is complete without a thorough wash of the car to remove any residual glue that may be left from the unwrapping process. And once all the PPF is finally removed from the vehicle, your paint should be waxed thoroughly since the wax was removed during the installation process. 


We would always advise to replace your current PPF with a new wrap if the film is yellowing or is just getting chipped up. This is because once you remove the film the paint is subject to the same road debris that all cars have to deal with. If you had PPF on your vehicle, it’s unlikely that you will want it removed anyway, as the advantages become shockingly clear within the first month.
