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.

CERAMIC PRO

Pre-Ceramic Coated Film

Ceramic Pro's Ceramic-Coated Paint Protection Film is the film of choice if you would like the benefits of coating your film with Ceramic Pro without having to go through that extra cost and installation time. The film is coated with Ceramic Pro PPF and Vinyl formula during production. This means that as soon as the film is on your car you can benefit from all the hydrophobic qualities of a Ceramic Pro coating in a single installation step.


Note: If you do NOT get Full Body PPF, you will not have a fully coated car and will require our Ceramic Coating service to coat the remainder of the non-PPF'd portions of the car.

Satin

PPF FINISH STYLE

Select a Finish: Gloss VS Matte

Choose to protect and retain your factory gloss finish OR change it up and mattify your car with Satin Film! We use Ceramic Pro for all PPF jobs. Each shop will have their own preference of brand of film. For us, Ceramic Pro has the best finish and durability over the other name brands. Having the best product means nothing without the proper tools. Having the right tools and equipment is a must in the PPF industry. Of course you can freehand, but having the best equipment available for purchase allows us to not only get the jobs done quicker, but each piece of film is precision cut to the exact dimensions of each window. Providing you with the best fit and finish money can buy.

PPF COST FACTORS

Pricing Factors for PPF Installations

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.
