When it comes to maintaining the appearance and value of your vehicle, no technology can match the performance and benefits of paint protection film, now available at Westminster Speed and Sound in Maryland. Protection film is a completely transparent, durable composite material that is applied over your paint finish to add an extra layer of protection. Let’s look at how paint film works and why it’s a great investment.
What Is Paint Protection Film?
Originally developed by 3M during the Vietnam War to protect the leading edge of helicopter rotor blades, protection films have become a mainstay of the automotive industry. These films feature an incredibly strong thermoplastic urethane top layer with a polyethylene backing. The film is applied directly to the surface of your vehicle to provide a durable barrier against damage.
Keep Your Vehicle Looking Like New
Common applications for protection film include front bumpers, the grille and fascia, headlights and the leading edge of the hood to protect against stone chips and scratches from road debris and salt. The durable film can withstand minor parking lot scuffs that would have required repainting in the past. We can add the film to rear view mirrors, rocker panels, fenders and even behind door handles for added protection. Paint film is also a great solution for protecting motorcycle gas tanks from nicks and scratches. In fact, any smooth or painted surface on your vehicle is an ideal candidate for protection film.
The Latest Technology in Protective Films
The latest 3M Scotchgard Pro Series 4.0 paint protection film offers exceptional clarity with reduced “orange peel” as compared to other solutions. The film not only protects against physical damage but is chemical and stain resistant. Bug splatter, oil deposits and tar spots can be wiped off quickly and easily. In fact, even ink from a Sharpie marker will wipe off with a soft cloth. Pro Series 4.0 film features unique self-healing properties that eliminate small scratches from the smooth film surface.
Protection That Lasts
Scotchgard Pro 4.0 is backed by a 10-year warranty when professionally installed. The new adhesives resist yellowing and cracking while remaining firmly bonded to your vehicle. Protected surfaces will look like new for years, even after thousands of miles on the interstate or back roads.
