paint protection film. Block out moisture, deflect Wind, and more
Within the auto business, paint jobs cost a nice chunk of money. Without adding on New York paint protection film service to the mix, you might as well light those same Benjamins on fire.
And that’s not a nice thing to do to Mr. Franklin. We don’t know about you, but we’d rather keep a few more Franklins in the old wallet, and that means spending a little to protect a lot more.
Enter STEK protection film, one of the best film products in the industry. Seriously: STEK is so top-of-the-line that they require certification before you can install their film. They throw in a killer warranty to protect you for the long run: ten years of protection against any peeling, yellowing, or bubbling.
And bubbles are for seltzer, not protection film.
Let’s knock out some questions and bring you up to speed on the ins and outs of our New York paint protection film service.
- Glossy or Matte Finish
- Hydrophobic (Advanced water repelling properties)
- Anti-Contamination (Easy to remove contaminants)
- Stain Resistant
- Fast Recovery Self – Healing (by heat or hot water)
What Is Paint Protection Film (PPF)?
Paint protection film is a professionally-applied product that forms a barrier between the elements and your paint job. It blocks out moisture, deflects wind, and keeps bird droppings off your ride.
Can Paint Protection Film Really Self-Heal?
Some paint protection film can self-heal, but not all PPF products on the market have the same degree of self-healing capabilities. The self-healing property means that if a rock hits your vehicle, the paint protection film can go back to its original state after you remove the rock. Minor debris is no match for self-healing PPF.
How Long Should I Wait to Apply PPF if My Car Has Been Repainted?
A common assumption about a body paint job is that the paint is ready to go the minute you pick up your ride from the shop. That isn’t the case: the paint has to dry fully. This is a process that can take up to 45 days, depending on outside conditions.
As you might imagine, things get a little slower in winter. New York paint protection services are best saved for after your ride’s paint job is fully set.
Can You Remove Paint Protection Film?
Good paint protection film is there to last for several years, and our in-house installation process is designed to uphold this standard. While you can remove paint protection film, it’s best to take this project to a pro that can give it proper attention.
What Is DYNOShield?
DYNOShield is the flagship product from STEK, and it’s an industry favorite for many reasons. The biggest reason is its superior self-healing properties, a nano-ceramic topcoat, and plenty of resistance to punctures.
How Long Does Paint Protection Film Last?
If you take steps to protect your PPF and take care of it, you can expect it to last five to ten years. The range is so wide because there are multiple variables in play. For example, do you store your vehicle inside a garage or out on the street?
If you store your ride in a garage, you aren’t subjecting it to the elements as much as when you have street parking to deal with.
Will Paint Protection Film Damage My Paint?
We know how important it is to protect your paint job, and the good news here is that PPF will not damage your paint. Keep in mind that it’s designed to protect your paint from the elements, and it is built to last.
Can You Apply PPF Over Stone Chips or Touched-In Chips?
Everyone wants to talk about the ideal situation, but we also want to cover the reality. Sure, it would be great to go forward with our STEK paint protection film from day one, but not everyone can do that. So if you have existing stone chips or touched-in chips, you will not have the same results as someone with a blemish-free paint surface.
Paint protection film will magnify the good, the bad, and the ugly. That’s just the way the material performs. So you will be able to see small air pockets around those stone chip areas, but it doesn’t take away from the protection factor.
