Protect your paint with Paint Protection Film

In a world of rocks, road debris, bird droppings, bug splatter, UV rays, acid rain, and a host of other environmental contaminants, what’s a new car owner to do? The road fights against the look and quality of your car’s paint. How can you and your car fight back?

 

The most comprehensive form of automotive paint protection is Paint Protection Film (also known as Clear Bra). Paint Protection Film is a urethane covering that is wrapped around a car’s exterior to provide a line of defense against environmental hazards. A quality film will prevent rock chips, resist chemical stains and etching, guard against oxidation, and even self-heal from small scratches and disfigurements.

 

If you are looking for a way to keep your car looking better for longer, Paint Protection Film may be the end of your search.

 

And here at Exclusive Detail, we are the premiere Paint Protection Film destination in Charlotte, NC.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Paint Protection Film cost?
That depends on how much coverage you want. The cost of Paint Protection Film application could range from around $800 for minimal coverage to over $5,000 for full coverage. Use the dropdown menu above to view the available kits for your specific make and model. Note that the prices shown are the material cost alone and do not include prep work and installation labor.
How long do I need to leave my vehicle for Paint Protection Film application??
In order for us to spend a sufficient amount of time preparing your vehicle’s paint and applying the film, you will need to leave your vehicle with us for at least one day for partial coverage, and multiple days for full coverage. Please fill out our appointment form and we will determine the length of time needed for your specific vehicle.
What are the different coverage options?
You can apply Paint Protection Film to particularly vulnerable areas (like the front bumper, hood, fenders, rearview mirrors, rocker panels, and rear wheel arch), or you can cover the entire vehicle for maximum protection. Use the dropdown menu above to view the available kits for your specific make and model.
Which brand do you use or recommend?
Our most popular film is XPEL Ultimate. We are factory trained and certified XPEL installers. We are also certified to install Suntek Ultra, LLumar Platinum, and 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Films. Learn more about the differences between leading Paint Protection Film brands.
Can Paint Protection Film be used with a Ceramic Coating?
Yes. In fact, that is the best form of automotive paint protection you can purchase for your vehicle. A Paint Protection Film is applied to the most vulnerable parts of your vehicle, and a Ceramic Coating is applied on top of the film and over all exterior painted surfaces. Learn more about using Paint Protection Films and Ceramic Coatings together.
What do I need to do after application?
After application you should wait at least 7 days before washing the vehicle. After that, you can wash your vehicle as you normally would. If you are using a pressure washer, be sure to stay 8–12 inches from the edge of the film in order to prevent peeling. If using compressed air, keep the nozzle one foot away from exposed edges. Avoid wiping or cleaning the film in direct sunlight. If the film is not covered with a Ceramic Coating, you should apply a high-quality wax or sealant regularly. Finally, do not use a powered buffer on the film.
Will Paint Protection Film change the color of my car?
No. A good clear bra is a virtually invisible urethane film that is both stain and fade resistant. It won’t impact the color of your car. Learn more about the history and technology behind Paint Protection Film.
How does Paint Protection Film self-heal?
The self-healing technology describes clear bra’s ability to return to its original form after washing marks, swirl-0marks, or other light scratches are introduced into the surface of the film. Paint Protection Film will not heal if the film is fully punctured or torn. Learn more about the history and technology behind Paint Protection Film.
How long does Paint Protection Film last?
Our leading film, XPEL Ultimate, is warrantied for 10-years.
Can Paint Protection Film be removed?
Yes. Our trained professionals can remove Paint Protection Film without damaging your car.
