Three Things You Didn’t Know About Paint Protection Film

  1. The military used it first—During the Vietnam War, the rotor blades on American helicopters kept getting damaged by shrapnel and debris. Frustrated that this kept happening, military researchers created paint protection film to put around spinning helicopter blades to provide an additional layer of protection.
  2. Vinyl wraps and paint protection film are different—Many people confuse vinyl wraps with paint protection film, but the two are different. While vinyl wraps are usually used to change the look of a vehicle, paint protection film is designed to give a vehicle a protective finish while improving the luster of the paint.
  3. Paint protection film reduces oxidation—Mineral deposits, bird droppings, acid, and bugs can scratch your car. Additionally, exposure to moisture, UV light, and sun can all cause oxidation on the surface of your car. Paint protection film prevents this from happening and protects your car from oxidation.
