PAINT PROTECTION FILM
POWERED BY KAVACA
THE BEST VEHICLE
Rock chips are like stubbed toes - no matter how much you want to avoid them, you're gonna feel the pain at some point.
When it comes to your car, it doesn't matter how careful you drive, it will accumulate rock chips over time. The more you drive, the more they appear - and before long that 'new look' your car had will turn into a dull, chipped finish that's expensive to fix.
Paint Protection Film, otherwise known as Clear Bra, was created to fix just this. PPF gives owners the ability to drive and enjoy their new car, without worrying about damaging or diminishing its looks.
WHAT IS PAINT PROTECTION FILM?
Paint Protection Film, also referred to as PPF or Clear Bra, is a see-through polyurethane film that covers your vehicle and is considered the best product on the market for rock-chip protection. Think of it as a giant, perfectly clear sticker that covers the paint portions of your vehicle.

This combination of technology, superior materials, and stringent quality control provides our customers with the highest-quality, longest lasting PPF found on the market.

PAINT PROTECTION FILM FAQs
HOW LONG DOES PPF LAST?
How long Paint Protection Film lasts varies based on the films quality, as well as its manufacturing and installation process. PPF is not a 'one and done' service and will require removal and reapplication at some point in time - this is something many low-end shops don't explain to customers and use "lifetime warranties" as sales tactics. Our KAVACA film comes standard with a 12-year manufacturer warranty from yellowing and peeling, however we have seen clients get much longer out of the film with proper car care.
WILL PPF DAMAGE MY CARS PAINT?
In 99% of application scenarios, Paint Protection Film will not damage your vehicles paint or cause any issues. The 1% comes from applying and removing PPF from repainted cars, as aftermarket paint tends to be less durable than OEM paint. While very rare, it is possible for the film to remove aftermarket paint from the car during these processes. This is something we discuss with every client before scheduling.
IS VINYL WRAP AND PPF DIFFERENT?
While they might seem the same - vinyl wrap and PPF are wildly different in their purposes. Vinyl wrap is a thin (4mm), malleable film, that can come in nearly any color or finish. It is applied dry using a heat gun and is generally used to change the color of a vehicle. Whereas Paint Protection Film is a think (8mm), non-malleable film, that is clear and is generally applied without heat and instead with soap and water. The purpose of PPF is strictly vehicle protection and it is rarely (if ever) used for aesthetic changes to a vehicle.
WILL I NOTICE PPF ON MY CAR?
We've all walked past a car before and seen that withering, yellow line cutting across the hood. Unfortunately yes, that is PPF, but to be fair, it's more the curmudgeonly-great-grandfather of PPF. What you're usually seeing is the industry's first attempts at paint protection film yellowing away. Since then we've come a long way and noticing which car has PPF and which doesn't is harder than you'd think. Let's put it this way - PPF is on more cars than ever (by a long-shot), and I bet you rarely - if ever - see it on cars. (And if you do, congrats on the spidey-senses)
