WHY Should I use protection plus instead of a bra and/or shield?
Bras and bug shields are not permanently affixed to the vehicle and cause chaffing to the paint. PROTECTION PLUS protects the painted surface without damaging the paint and does not change the appearance of the vehicle.
WILL IT REALLY STOP ROCKS FROM CHIPPING THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE?
Yes, the material was orignally designed by aerospace engineers to protect the leading edges of aircraft propellers and rotor blades from rock chips. It is a much easier task to protect your vehicle’s paint than it is to protect a propeller moving at nearly the speed of sound.
WHERE ELSE CAN I PUT PROTECTION PLUS?
Any high wear area such as behind the wheels, top of rear bumper , door edges, rocker panels, above the windshield. areas of motorcycles, boats and RV’s. If it’s painted and moves it needs Protection Plus.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Protection Plus Film properly maintained will last as long as you own your vehicle.
WHAT DO I DO WHEN WAX BUILDS UP ON THE LEADING EDGES OF THE FILM WHEN I WAX MY VEHICLE?
A soft, damp, terrycloth towel, Q-tips or micro-fiber cloth will remove any wax build up that may occur.
CAN IT BE REMOVED OR REPLACED?
Yes, it can be removed by a certified installer without doing any damage to the vehicle’s original finish. The car is then prepped again and a new PROTECTION plus film kit can be applied.
WILL PROTECTION PLUS FILM AFFECT THE MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY?
No, the manufacturer’s warranty is not affected because the paint finish and metal of your vehicles is not tampered with in any way. PROTECTION PLUS and the application process do not require any drilling of holes or perforation of metal. The application of PROTECTION PLUS films kits are OEM approved.
CAN I SEE THE FILM AFTER IT HAS BEEN APPLIED?
If you know where to look. The film material comes to us in a large roll. Our machines cut the fim into shapes designed to fit various parts of your vehicle.. These pieces are then applied by our certified installers. The result is a near invisible installation.
HOW IS THE FILM APPLIED?
Using our proprietary slip solution, we wet the surface to prevent the film from sticking to allow us to position the patterns more accurately. We then use a wash and activate solution to make the film adhere to the paint along with pressure from a specialized application tool. After we install the film, we wrap the edges as needed and then heat cure all of the edges for the best edge retention.
WILL MY PAINT FADE DIFFERENLY UNDER THE PROTECTION PLUS FILM THAT IT DOES THE REST OF THE VEHICLE?
No, the material contains an inhibitor to prevent the film from reacting to the sun’s UV rays but this does not prevent the UV rays from passing through the film to your paint. This means that any paint fading is the same with or without the film.
WHAT IF I WANT TO TAKE MY VEHICLE THROUGH A CAR WASH OR HAVE IT WAXED?
You can do anything to the PROTECTION PLUS fim kits that you would do to the rest of the vehicle’s finish. The shield will accept wax and polish just as your paint does and wil last longer with regular application.
NOTE: You must wait 2- 15 days before waxing after it has been applied. (Depending on the climate) Remember to clean the film and Vehicle often and apply a high grade automotive wax to it (2) twice a year. This will keep the product and vehicle looking it’s best.
WILL MY VEHICLE'S PERFORMANCE BE AFFECTED?
No, because PROTECTION PLUS film kits are installed to perfectly fit and conform to the vehicle’s shape. Your vehicle will perform as it did previously and it will just look better doing it!
IS PROTECTION PLUS FILM GUARANTEED?
Yes, there is a 5yr or 10yr limited warranty depending on the film used.
