What is XPEL Paint Protection Film?

A Paint Protection Film is a clear, thermoplastic urethane film applied over your vehicle’s exterior paint surface to create a barrier between its paint job and any harmful debris.

Once installed, PPF protects your car’s expensive paint job against damage, including scratches and oxidation from harsh UV rays.

Bravo Protection uses the XPEL Ultimate Plus, an optically clear, high gloss film with a self-healing, chemical-resistant top coat. We believe in uing the best products and installation techniques to offer our clients optimum protection.

Discover the Benefits of Getting XPEL Paint Protection Film for Your Car

Here’s why Bravo uses XPEL Paint Protection Film to provide the best coverage for your automobile:

  • Highly Transparent

A key concern with PPF installation is the addition of unwanted texture or the ‘orange peel’ surface. Many PPFs do not work as advertised, becoming visible over time by developing a texture or a faint hint of color that spoils the car’s appearance.

However, this won’t happen with XPEL Paint Protection Films, as they are almost invisible. You can select the matte or the high gloss finish. XPEL PPF matches your car’s factory or custom paintwork while adding color depth for a clear, flawless look.

  • Offers Durable Protection: 

Your car looks all bright and glossy after leaving the factory.  Yet, light scuffs, dents, and scratches appear over time, destroying its beautiful finish.

XPEL Paint Protection helps you avoid this by acting as a protective barrier between your car’s stunning paintwork and harmful dbris.

These include:

  • rock chips
  • bug splatter
  • tree sap
  • bird droppings
  • brake dust
  • road debris like gravel, dirt, etc.

XPEL’s PPF ensures that your vehicle’s stellar paintwork remains untarnished. Bravo’s top pick, the XPEL Ultimate Plus, also has a hydrophobic or water-repelling topcoat. The layer automatically repels several external contaminants like dirty water, oils, and grime.

The film’s water-repellent properties also make it easier to wash your car’s surface and maintain its pristine appearance. Follow these steps to take care of your car’s protection film.

  • Equipped with Self-Healing Properties: Did you know that XPEL had launched the first self-healing PPF way back in 2011?

The secret behind these self-healing properties is an elastomeric polyurethane topcoat. Due to this topcoat, any light scratches or swirls that may form in the PPF can be ironed out via simple heat application. It sounds almost like magic.

  • Stain Resistant

Corrosive materials like bird droppings, insect acids, UV rays, oils, and tar can stain your car’s custom paint job. They may even discolor regular paint protection films, causing a slight tinge in color.

However, XPEL Paint Protection Film is non-yellowing and preserves your car’s original hue and brightness.

  • Design Patterns for Each Car Model and Make

Bravo uses the XPEL’s DAP or Design Access Program with a database of over 80,000 patterns to apply PPF on every car model with ultimate precision.

  • Excellent Warranty

Installing paint protection film on your car is a considerable investment. Yet the short-term expenses are nothing in terms of the long-term gains XPEL paint protection offers.

XPEL Ultimate Plus comes with an extensive 10-year warranty from the manufacturer. The warranty covers defects like:

  • Yellowing or discoloration
  • Peeling or cracking
  • Hazing

In the rare event that your XPEL Paint Protection Film is defective, it will be repaired or replaced, securing your investment for years ahead.

  • Advanced Edge Seal Technology: Nothing looks as shabby as when your car’s paint protection film delaminates, letting in dirt and grime.

With XPEL’s proprietary edge sealing technology, you won’t have to worry about this problem. Our experts at Bravo will further ensure that your PPF firmly sticks to your car for a smooth and seamless finish.
