Things You Should Know About Paint Protection Film

Most car owners don't know what happens during the installation of the paint protective film. Either they are not interested or they are very busy, and one of the answers is okay. But it's always good to know if there's an error or maybe the installer forgot to do something important. These 7 insights will keep you in the circle.

1. There are two main types of installation; pre-cut and custom cut patterns

"Which installation do you prefer, precut or custom cut?" This is the first question you should expect. Precutting is specially designed for your car. Computerized plotters and software are used to cut patterns according to car specifications. You can visit www.paintprotectionfilm.nyc/bumper-protector-film/ to get the rear bumper protector film.

2. PPF should not be installed immediately after repainting

To prevent damage to the paint on film removal, wait until the paint is completely dry. This can take weeks or even months. To be safe, attach a clean bra after one or two months.

3. Parts to be installed must be thoroughly cleaned and polished

Before the process of installing the paint protective film begins, the installer must prepare the surface thoroughly. This step will show you if you are dealing with a professional or a mere installer. A professional strives for perfection. What's more, good preparation shows good results and vice versa.

4. Only clear and white paint and wax should be used

Any colored wax or paint will stain the film. Furthermore, wax or plastic polish cannot contain petroleum-based ingredients. It is poisonous and threatens the function & longevity of the film.

5. The installation price is the same regardless of the paint protective film used

Whether you use 3M, Venture Shield or Clear Film, the installation price is the same.
