Paint Protection Film by 405 Motoring in Los Angeles California is the best way to protect and preserve the original paint on any vehicle. While there are other options for protecting paint with different levels of protection, such as ceramic coatings or even plain wax, there is simply nothing that protects as well as modern self-healing paint protection film. This film, otherwise known as PPF or clear bra, is a thin adhesive film that is applied over the panels on your vehicle to cover the paint. Once the film is applied, it’s virtually invisible. It just looks like the original glossy clear coat that came with the car from factory. However, with it applied, your paint now has a shield that protects it from gravel flung at it at freeway speeds and most minor scratches that would otherwise ruin it.

The film self-heals from most scratches and rock impacts with just a little bit of heat. It isn’t that you have to manually work it a heat gun or anything like that. Just merely having the car in the sun for a bit so that the films warms up is enough for the upper layer of the film to molecularly fuse with itself, and scratches just disappear. This tech has been around for some years now, but the newest films possesses qualities that are beyond anything we used to have years ago. The self-healing qualities of modern PPF by XPEL is something that we only used to dream about. Every new luxury vehicle should get XPEL Paint Protection Film. This kind of paint protection allows you to truly enjoy your vehicle without having to worry about every tiny scratch or rock chip.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a handful of FAQs we get at 405 Motoring often. This may help shed some light as you might have some of these same questions.

Modern paints are an improvement over classic paints in that they usually have more than one stage of paint and include reliable clear coats. Oftentimes, these original paint coats are baked on at the factory making them rather strong and resilient. Compared to many single stage classic paint jobs, this can make them better and longer lasting. However, the movement towards being more eco-friendly has also made some modern paint more susceptible to scratches and rock chips. A layer of paint protection film adds an amazing level of protection for your original paint no matter the manufacturer. It really is a no-brainer. It’s going to protect your paint.
Warranty periods can vary between films. Most top-of-the-line films these days come with a 12-year warranty. We offer XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS paint protection film. It comes with a 12-year warranty.
It depends on what you like. Gloss PPF is going to be a little easier to maintain as you can layer on a thicker ceramic coating making it easier to clean. Matte PPF these days, such as XPEL STEALTH paint protection film is on par with gloss film in terms of reliability and warranty, but you can’t just pile on the ceramic coatings as it’ll start getting a bit too shiny. But if you really want that awesome matte look, then definitely go for matte PPF.
Yes, you can add a ceramic coating or wax over PPF. Some films come pre-coated, but adding a thicker ceramic coating can be good in some instances. Also, for older film, cleaning it up and adding a ceramic coating can rejuvenate the film and improve its looks and cleaning ease.
PPF can definitely be removed. It’s recommended you let the pros handle the job of removing it. The reason for this is that it needs to be steamed off so it comes off easily.
