PAINT PROTECTION FILM

ABOUT OUR PPF

PROFESSIONAL PAINT PROTECTION FILM INSTALLATION IN CT

Paint Protection Film (commonly referred to as PPF) is your new car’s best friend.


Every car looks amazing right off the dealership lot, wouldn’t you like to keep it that way? Well unfortunately, cars don’t come with any protection on their paint so the second you drive that car off the lot, it is prone to rock chips. You may even get one on your first drive home. 


The truth is, when a rock flies into a car, all of the energy is focused on the point of the rock which makes contact with the paint, which is a very very small area. Automotive paint is thin and does not have much flex, so when that rock hits, you will have a small chip which can eventually crack and peel. Day after day of driving without protection will result in hundreds of these paint chips.


You can touch up the chipped areas, but they will just keep coming back unless you protect your paint. (the only way to protect paint as of now is with PPF if you were wondering)


If you have PPF installed and a rock hits your car, the urethane layer of the film will flex when impacted, absorbing some of the force and spreading out the rest into a larger area, saving your paint from that tiny little chip.


Avoid paint chips, get your Paint Protection Film installed when your car is brand new and drive with confidence knowing your car will look new for years to come regardless of age or miles driven.

PPF COST FACTORS

Here are the factors taken into consideration when pricing each PPF INSTALLATION

Vehicle Size

Smaller vehicles have much less surface area to work with, resulting in less time involved in installation. Where as larger vehicles require more time to install.

Condition of Paint

We will not PPF over paint that is scratched and has swirls all over. If your paint is brand new, then you are in the clear. But if your paint is rough, we will have to perform a paint correction on your vehicle so that you do not see any paint defects and imperfections through the film.

Body Lines of a Vehicle

A front bumper of an SUV will be much larger and smoother than that of a supercar where the bumper will be smaller with tighter angles and much more hard to reach spots. These difficult spots will add more time the to installation

Gloss or Satin?

Gloss paint protection film is the most commonly used, however, some prefer to change their vehicles finish from gloss to satin while maintaining the factory color. Satin paint protection film has an added cost over the gloss film.
