  • What is Paint Protection Film (PPF)?
    In order to fully appreciate the power of paint protection film, it’s important to explore it’s history. Like many of today’s modern achievements, PPF was developed to solve a problem. During the Vietnam War, the United States Department of Defense was having trouble with rotor blades on several of their helicopters being damaged by shrapnel, trees, and other debris. ​ A company was tasked to create a protective layer that was lightweight, yet incredibly strong. The solution was called helicopter tape or a custom urethane film that was designed for function – not style. ​ Today’s PPF is far cry from helicopter tape. It’s thermoplastic urethane that is transparent, can be colored, even custom textured to enhance gloss or matte paint jobs. It is a clear paint protection film that can be purchased in different grades, thickness, and is applied by highly trained professionals with precision accuracy
  • What PPF do we use at Carget Auto Studio?
    We at Carget Auto Studio use XPEL paint protection film which combines BEST IN CLASS DURABILITY AND CLARITY compared to compeitiors in the market. With its very low surface energy XPEL's PPF’s clear coat sheds contaminants that would otherwise stain or yellow conventional films. Elastomeric polymers heal over time, to naturally eliminate swirl marks and other fine scratches. With its PARTS AND LABOUR WARRANTY against cracking, peeling, staining and hazing, our film is the most revolutionary paint protection film on the market today.
  • Benefits of PPF
    Protection Our PPF protects your paintwork from chips, minor scuffs and scrapes, environmental factors such as bug splatter and protects the finish against defects from poor washing techniques. Enhancement Our PPF has a superior optical clarity and is very easy to maintain. When looked after correctly it gives a depth of shine like freshly detailed paint for many years. Self Healing Our PPF has a self healing layer. Stone chips, scuffs, scratches and swirls that don’t penetrate this layer disappear with the application of heat from hot tap water, the car’s engine or even just the sun. Replacement If a panel needs replacing, you won’t be off the road for long. Most panels can be replaced within a couple of hours – unlike traditional paint repairs, which often take days or even weeks. Time & Convenience Should a panel require replacement it is a quick turnaround, most panels can be replaced within a couple of hours whereas paint repairs run into days even weeks. Cost Because our PPF is specifically designed to fit each panel it can be replaced individually meaning little or no need to strip the panels and no extra paint to blend the colour to adjacent panels.
  • What PPF coverage to choose?
    Traditionally PPF was installed on wheel arches, the leading edge of the bonnet or the forward panels of the car. Today, many clients wants to cover the entire vehicle. Such is the quality of the modern films and our design and installation processes that it really does make sense to protect the whole car. Paint protection film can protect your car against damage such as stone chips, car park nudges and chipping, and day-to-day scratches. With our custom designs, we can cover ANY painted, carbon fibre or smooth finished surface of the car, even interior trims. We have various options to suit each part of the car: thicker film for low down, high impact areas such as bumpers and sills, and clearer film for large, flat panels such as hoods and roofs. All our film comes in matte, as well as traditional high-gloss options, to cover expensive matte paints and carbon fibre paints. Where the Damage Occurs: High impact areas (bumpers, hood, front fenders, wing mirrors, lower doors, wheel arches, sills, headlights, lower doors, a-pillars). Medium impact areas (rear fenders, upper doors). Low impact areas (trunk lid, engine cover).
  • After care and maintenance
    Once your car has been protected by Carget Auto Studio, you can also enjoy the peace of mind knowing that maintaining the glossy appearance of the PPF is still very simple, we provide After Care instructions along with your warranty documentation but a few key points • As the installation of the film is a wet process we advise to not wash the car for the first 7 days afterwards, the moisture in between the film and paint is still evaporating during this time and using shampoos can affect this and the adhesive qualities around the edges of each panel. You may use touchless car washes but hand washes are recommended. • Once the film has cured, you are able to wash the car as normal (if possible use the two bucket method and a clean wash mitt), if using a pressure washer ensure that you keep the spray at least 3 feet away from the surface of the film especially the edges as the pressure may lift the edge of the film. • If you get bug splatter or bird dropping you should still remove this as soon as possible as you would with bare paint, while the PPF adds protection the top layer has a similar make up to your cars own lacquer and will also be marked from the acids etching into it. • If you like to polish or wax your car you can continue to do this on PPF covered panels although more careful selection of the products must be taken. Polishes that are resin, solvent based or abrasive can mark the film leaving a haze or damaging the self healing abilities and must be avoided. A good quality natural wax like Carnauba can be used, of course if you are unsure our team can advise on specific recommended products. • Surface scratches and swirl marks in the film will heal over a period of time, if you needed to accelerate the process then pour warm water (not boiling) over the desired area, that will help the upper most layer of the film to morph back into its original state.
