Car Paint Protection Film - Explained:

Paint protection film is an invisible layer of protection that safeguards your car's paintwork. It can be applied to specific areas, such as the bonnet, front wings, and wing mirrors, or cover the entire vehicle. XPEL Paint Protection Film not only shields the paint from common hazards but also possesses self-healing properties.

When exposed to warmth, like the sun or a hairdryer, the film's self-healing feature ensures it recovers from minor scratches, restoring an optically clear and flawlessly smooth gloss finish. This remarkable film defends against swirls, surface damage, chips, scratches, acid rain, UV exposure, bird droppings, and other environmental elements, while preserving the pristine condition and residual value of the car. Furthermore, all our XPEL PPF work is backed by a 10-year guarantee.

Gtechniq Ceramic Coating and Its Benefits:

In addition to the comprehensive paint protection film, the customer opted for Gtechniq Ceramic Coating to enhance the durability and gloss of the Porsche GT4. Ceramic coating forms a protective layer over the paintwork, guarding against UV rays, dirt, and grime.

The coating's hydrophobic properties repel water, making cleaning the car easier and ensuring a high-gloss, long-lasting finish. By combining paint protection film with ceramic coating, the customer enjoys an additional layer of defence against acidic contaminants, along with the added benefits of quicker cleaning and exceptional water beading effect.

  5. Vehicle Surface is Prepared: The car is moved to our climate-controlled detailing bay, where we carry out a meticulous preparation process, ensuring proper adhesion of the paint protection film by removing any remaining contaminants.

  6. Paint Protection Film is Installed: Our highly trained technicians apply the paint protection film to each panel, wrapping edges for a seamless fit and preserving the car's original colour and gloss.

  7. Climate Controlled Environment: After installation, we allow the film to settle for 24 hours in our climate-controlled room, ensuring optimal bonding to the surface.

  8. Ceramic Coating: We apply Gtechniq Ceramic Coating to provide an additional layer of protection, durability, and high-gloss finish.

  9. Final Checks: We conduct a thorough quality control check, ensuring the installation meets our exacting standards, with no imperfections, bubbles, or peeling of the film.
