An Introduction To Paint Protection Film For Cars
Car wrap is simply the process of applying large sheets of vinyl to your car to change its color and create a totally new and refreshed look. The vinyl completely covers the paintwork of your car, protecting it from abrasions and stone chips caused by general wear and tear. If any part of the car gets damaged for any reason, the vinyl can be easily repaired or replaced. A popular example of a car wrap is paint protection film, also known as PPF.
Here at Euroworks, we have a good selection of styles of film as well as multiple packages for the placement of film (i.e. front bumper, full vehicle, etc.)
What is a Paint Protection Film (PPF)?
Also known as Clear Bra, Paint Protection Film is the most complete form of protection you can give your vehicle to protect it from scratches, chemical stains, rock chips, and several other environmental hazards.
The major purpose of using a paint protection film is to prevent rock chips, scuffs, and other types of damages which can destroy a vehicle's paint and body. While it is mostly applied to the front part of cars, it can also be used on the full body of the car to provide maximum protection for the vehicle's factory paint.
Some examples of paint protection films brands include XPEL, LLumar Platinum/SunTek Ultra, 3M, etc. At Euroworks, we make use of XPEL (XPEL Ultimate Plus PPF and XPEL Stealth PPF) which is considered a leader in automotive paint protective films because of their innovative technology.

Uses of Paint Protection Films
Paint protection film can also be used on the non-painted parts of the car apart from the painted areas. For example, it can be applied to plastic headlight and taillight covers to protect them from scratches or to tint them for added style. It will also help to protect these parts from cracking and will hold the covers intact if they do become damaged. Presently, people are also finding innovative new uses for it like protecting their expensive new cell phones.
Benefits of Paint Protection Films
Though the protective film can be applied by anyone with some skill and a degree of patience, the best results will always be obtained by a professional car wrap service like we offer here at Euroworks. The reason is that we have all the facilities and experience to apply the clear film in a clean environment, which is very important.
While applying the film yourself it is important to know that any dust or dirt on the paint will be trapped there until the film is removed and this can make the film wear out quickly and look terrible. Since most do-it-yourself people don't have the necessary facilities or a trained eye, it is wise to contact the pros to do it right.
