Car Paint Protection Film: What Is It?

Car Paint Protection Film, also known as PPF, is a durable, high-quality film that is applied to the exterior of your vehicle. It serves as a powerful defensive layer, guarding your car’s paint against potential damage from road debris, minor scratches, chemical stains, and harsh weather conditions. The transparent nature of the film ensures your vehicle maintains its aesthetic appeal while offering optimal protection.

PPF for Cars in Calgary: Why is it important?

Given Calgary’s diverse weather conditions – from winter snowstorms to summer heat waves – vehicles are exposed to an array of damaging factors. The gravel on roads, tree sap, bird droppings, and UV rays can all deteriorate the car’s paintwork over time. Car PPF acts as a shield, protecting your car against these elements, while helping to maintain the car’s value and aesthetic appeal.

Types of Paint Protection Films

Tap And Wrap only carries XPEL paint protection film. XPEL is one of the leading brands of PPF materials, known for its high-quality and durable films. XPEL offers a variety of finish options for Tesla PPF, including Stealth, Ultimate Plus, and Ultimate Fusion. Here are the benefits of each finish:

1. STEALTH™ - Satin Finish

xpel stealth ppf

Stealth Finish is a popular choice among car owners who want a more matte or satin finish to their car’s exterior. This finish is perfect for those who want a more understated look for their car. Stealth Finish is available in a variety of colors and provides the same level of protection as other XPEL PPF finishes. Additionally, it is resistant to yellowing and discoloration over time, which can help maintain the appearance of your car.

2. Ultimate PLUS™ - Gloss Finish

xpel ultimate plus ppf

Ultimate Plus Finish is the most popular choice for car PPF, and for good reason. This finish is extremely durable and provides the highest level of protection for your car’s exterior. It is resistant to scratches, chips, and other types of damage, and is designed to absorb impact without showing any signs of damage. Additionally, Ultimate Plus Finish is self-healing, which means that any small scratches or swirl marks will disappear on their own over time. This finish is available in a high-gloss finish and is virtually invisible once installed.

3. Ultimate Fusion™ - Hydrophobic, Ceramic Coated Finish

xpel ultimate fusion ppf

Ultimate Fusion Finish is a new option for car PPF, which combines the benefits of both ceramic coating and Ultimate Plus finishes. This finish is perfect for those who want the durability and protection of Ultimate Plus Finish, but with a more hydrophobic surface. Ultimate Fusion Finish provides the same level of protection as Ultimate Plus, with a high-gloss appearance. It is resistant to yellowing and discoloration over time, and is self-healing like Ultimate Plus Finish.

No matter which finish you choose, XPEL PPF is a great investment for those who want to protect their car’s exterior from damage and keep it looking new for longer. Contact Tap And Wrap today to learn more about our XPEL PPF services and finish options, and to choose the best option for your car.
