PAINT PROTECTION FILM FAQ

  • + Are there any special aftercare instructions for PPF?

    It is common for bubbles to appear or edges to lift in the first 1-2 weeks after application. This is why we ask all of our customers to come in for a PPF check-up 2 weeks after pick-up. This way we can keep everything looking perfect. If you do find any edges lifting or if bubbles appear, please refrain from touching these areas.
  • + How soon after installation can I wash my car?

    Please wait a minimum of 48 hours to wash your car after installation.
  • + How often should I wash my PPF?

    We recommend wiping down or washing your vehicle every 1-2 weeks. Avoid using a pressure sprayer around the edges of the film. This can encourage the film to lift or become damaged. Hand washing is preferred. Be sure to remove insect, sap, and other stains as soon as possible.
  • + My PPF is damaged! What should I do?

    Light scratches will heal on their own in about 20-30 minutes at room temperature. If the damage is more severe, give us a call or bring the car in to see what we can do. Every situation is different.
  • + Can I use waxes or sealants on my PPF?

    Absolutely! We recommend silica sealants, especially if you have ceramic coating in addition to your PPF. An application of a silica sealant once every 3-4 months is best practice.
 

CERAMIC COATING FAQ

  • + Are there any special aftercare instructions for ceramic coatings?

    It is important to avoid water exposure for 24 hours. If the vehicle does get wet, gently wipe off the water. Avoid all chemicals for 7 days, this includes car washes/soaps.
  • + How often should I wash my vehicle that has ceramic coating?

    In a perfect world, a weekly hand wash would be best. However, a hand wash every other week will be enough. Make sure to use pH balanced soap for best results. Be cautious with pressure sprayers. If you must use a pressure sprayer, we recommend using it only for applying a layer of foam to the vehicle and for rinsing the vehicle off. Towel drying is necessary to avoid water spotting. We do not recommend automatic or touchless car washes.
  • + Can I wax my vehicle that has ceramic coating?

    It is not recommended. If you would like, you can use sealants. Stay away from products that contain carnauba wax.
  • + What if my vehicle has both paint protection film and ceramic coating?

    In this case, follow the aftercare instructions for ceramic coatings.

TESTIMONIALS

I dealt with Austin. Great guy. Walked me through the whole process. I brought in my brand-new Raptor …. Xpel Stealth, ceramic coating and front three windows tinted. Wow. My truck looked like a beast when it was all done. I have had a ton of people comment and it’s only been a couple weeks. Highly recommend.

Was shopping around for a garage to get my Mercedes ceramic coated. After a few calls and quotes I decided to go with Auto Armour PPF. Their prices are fair and the work they do is great. They did not try to up charge and told me exactly what they could offer and recommend for my car based on my needs and goals. Jared was the professional who performed a full detail (Clay bar, polish, decontaminant) and ceramic coat on my car and he did an AMAZING job, couldnt be happier with the results. He coated the entire body with the ceramic coat, applied sealant to the wheels, cleaned the brake calipers, applied sealants to all the windows. The process does take a few days so be patient, but I rather have thorough job than a fast sloppy one. They also gave me a handful of these really nice microfiber towels and some waterless wash fluid. You my man Jared! Im bringing my truck next 🙂

I’m someone who appreciates quality. That is the reason I chose Auto Armour to install PPF and tint on my Model 3. I have always admired the high caliber of the team’s work and told myself that someday I would have one of my cars taken care of by the them. That goal became a reality this week when I picked the Model 3 up from the shop. I’m happy to say that I’m extremely pleased with both the work done and the experience, which was outstanding from beginning to end. I was able to pick Evan’s and Austin’s brains about the products they use. Every question I threw at them was answered to my satisfaction, which led me to handing my car over with no hesitations. Thank you to the Auto Armour team for taking exceptional care of my car
