Unlike wrap materials, paint protection film is a transparent product that protects the paintwork from road debris, small stones/gravel, road salt and dirt from damaging the vehicle paintwork.
The different finishes, matt and gloss have self healing properties. The ‘self heal’ product has the ability to do just that when lightly scratched. This self repair happens when heat from the sun warms the film, or manually applied with gentle heat from e.g hot water, hairdryer or a heatgun, making it look like new again.
As the film will be on the vehicle for 5 years plus, we need to clean and prepare the car to get the paintwork to a required state to fit the film.
A general rule of thumb is that we only apply paint protection film to genuine paintwork under three years old.
The paint condition, car age and total surface area to be filmed all make a difference to the cost, or even attempting the work. We will request to see the vehicle to discuss the finer details involved before any work commences.
Please contact us for a personal quotation as we do offer different products.
Example cost : A front bumper, part bonnet, headlights, ‘A’ pillars, wing mirrors and front of roof will start from around £600.00 incl. vat for the smaller cars using the self heal product, supplied and fitted for the 5 year product.
The new 10 year version ( released April 2017 ) also has the self heal properties but also has a hydrophobic coating that ‘beads’ water when it lands on a protected panel, reducing the need for cleaning and polishing. Please enquire for prices
You can also buy the product for diy situations. Mountain bikes or around the home for example, where the pieces are easily applied yourself.
