Here are three common ways to prolong the lifespan of paint protection film.
Wait to wash your vehicle for the first seven days following the PPF installation. Because the moisture between the car’s surface and the paint protection film is still draining, and the film has not yet attached adequately to the surface. Any disruption can interfere with the curing process.
Do not push any bubbles generated below the coating. Water bubbles might develop underneath the film when paint protection film is installed. The bubbles should not be squeezed during the curing process and will disperse within two to three weeks following installation.
If possible, do not use your vehicle for the first week following installation. This will allow you to control the environment, resulting in a more effective curing process.
The lifespan of paint protection film varies depending on several factors such as maintenance strategies, driving conditions and frequency of use. A typical film will last five to seven years, however the best paint protection films have the potential to last 10 years.
The price of having paint protection film installed depends on various factors, including the film’s quality and the packages that car owners select, such as side mirrors, the entire vehicle, or the full front.
The cost of installing paint protection film also depends on your vehicle type. SUVs and pickup vehicles will usually be more expensive due to their larger size, which requires more materials and labor. Additionally, the year, model, and manufacturer of your car affect the final pricing.
