A client from Towson recently contacted Westminster Speed and Sound about adding paint protection film to his 2018 four-door Volkswagen Golf GTI hatchback. We talked to the client about where he drives the vehicle and what surfaces would benefit the most from the scratch, chip and scuff protection of paint film. Based on his answers, we suggested that our Full PPF package would offer his vehicle the shielding he desired.
Volkswagen Paint Protection Film Installation
We planned to install 3M Scotchgard Pro Series 4.0 film on the front bumper, the forward edge of the front fenders, the leading edge of the hood and on the front of the rear-view mirrors. Our installation technicians begin the process by loading a large roll of film into our computer-controlled plotter to make the cuts for each piece of film. Compared with some shops that use bulk pieces of film on the vehicle and cut them to fit with a knife, our process eliminates the chances of an accident that could damage the paint surface.
With the film prepared, we decontaminate the surfaces of the vehicle to ensure that no debris or dust will be caught between the paint and the film. Finally, we use a slip agent to allow us to position each piece of the film perfectly on the vehicle; then we use a rubber squeegee to set the film in place so it will bond to the paint surface.
The Benefits of Paint Protection Film
Scotchgard Pro Series 4.0 is an 8-mil thick transparent protective coating that absorbs impacts from gravel and stones to prevent chips and scratches. The tough urethane construction also resists staining from road tar, harsh chemicals and bird droppings to ensure the vehicle continues to look amazing. If you travel on the freeway or interstate, adding paint protection film to your vehicle is a great way to keep it looking like new.
3M is a world leader in the development of automotive-grade adhesives and protection products. The urethane-based film and its pressure-sensitive adhesive are backed by a 10-year warranty against peeling, cracking, bubbling or turning yellow.
