It’s nearly invisible and forms a tough protective barrier keeping rocks, sand and bugs from directly impacting and damaging the painted surface.

Self healing paint protection films have multiple layers, each one serving a different purpose, and with a top coat that is able to smooth out surface stains and scratches when heat is applied.

How is it done?

As example for hood, fenders and bumper film installations, the front of the vehicle is cleaned and dried. The paint is also clay barred to remove any remaining impurities. The panels are again cleaned and dried. Film kits specific for your vehicle are computer cut and prepared for installation. We then apply the film using film application solutions, film tools and the film installers skills and experience. Once installation is complete, the film is inspected once more before final clean up and a coat of protective wax is applied. Yes you can wash and wax the film as normal. Once the film installation passes final inspection the vehicle is ready for return to it’s happy owner!

How long does it take?

For hood and fender film application it generally takes a half day to complete. If the front bumper film kit is also installed or additional areas are to be protected with the film, a full day is needed to finish the work. In some cases for large scale film projects, more time may be required. In most cases you drop of your car and pick it up the same day, hassle free.

How deep of scratch will heal?

The clear coat is designed to heal surface scratches and common swirl marks that occur during routine washing of the car. If the scratch penetrates through the film’s clear coat, it will not heal.
