What Does PPF Do?
Updated: Feb 27
One of the most frustrating things any car owner can encounter is finding rock chips and scratches on their vehicle. When you look at your paint and see the damage, it can be especially concerning if the chips you find look deep and have peeled the paint. When you purchase a brand new vehicle some dealerships will add a layer of ppf to the paint known as a "partial" which usually is only a small strip across the hood. This minimal coverages gives it a very minor level of protection that leaves a lot to be desired. At Lonestar Auto Boutique a "partial" is considered a full front bumper, a strip across the hood, fenders and headlights. Although this add more coverage compared to the dealer, most customers choose to go with our full frontal package which covers all high impact painted surfaces(full hood, front bumper, full fenders, headlights, mirrors). Paint protection film, also known as a clear bra is a great way to add an extra layer of protection to your vehicle and create an invisible shield to block rocks and debris from coming into direct contact with your vehicle.
We had this brand new Isle of Man Green BMW M3 brought into our home shop on Bulverde Rd. to install a carbon ceramic window tint to the windows, and wrap the car in ppf to protect it on the roads. In order to preserve such a unique and special paint we used Suntek Reaction ppf, which is packed full of advanced ppf and ceramic coating features. This ppf provides an exceptional level of resistance against harsh elements like bird droppings, acid rain, pollen and sap from plants.
Paint Protection Film, commonly referred to as PPF or clear bra is an increasingly popular way to protect your car's paint job from the elements. It is a thin, yet durable film that can be applied directly to your vehicle's surfaces. This special type of film is designed to provide long-term protection against scratches, chips, and other damage that can result from regular wear and tear. In this blog post, we will look at some of the benefits of using PPF on your vehicle and why you should consider having it professionally installed by Lonestar Tint.
There are numerous benefits to using PPF or Clear Bra on your car. One of the most obvious ones is that it helps protect your paint job from damage caused by rocks and debris that may fly up when you're driving. Since PPF is a thin layer of plastic that goes over the surface of your car, it will absorb any impact before it reaches the paint underneath. This means no more worrying about chips and scratches in the finish! Additionally, PPF will also protect against fading caused by UV rays which can significantly reduce the lifespan of your vehicle's paint job if left unchecked. Having your PPF installed by our professional installers at Lonestar Auto Boutique will assure that a pristine job is done and excellent care is taken during the installation process. PPF is nearly invisible when applied correctly, you don't have to worry about compromising the look of your vehicle, only making it look shinier and sleeker!
Finally, one huge advantage of using PPF over traditional methods like waxing or sealing is that it does not require any ongoing maintenance after installation. Once you have had it professionally applied, you never have to worry about reapplying waxes or sealants again - leaving you with more time and money in the long run!
In conclusion, there are many advantages to having Paint Protection Film (PPF) professionally installed by Lonestar Tint on your vehicle.
