Frequently Asked Questions
What is Paint Protection Film?
PPF or Paint Protection Film is a polyurethane (plastic) film that is transparent (clear), tough and flexible.
What does Paint Protection Film do?
Once applied, Paint Protection Film will protect your car against stone chips, scuffs, scratches, birdlime and harsh weather.
How is Paint Protection Film installed?
First, we’ll carry out a maintenance wash followed by a clay bar decontamination, then a one stage polish (for front end and full coverage packages only) finishing off with panel surface preparation.
Then we apply the Film using a specially formulated gel solution – we use a range of squeegees to ensure that there are no creases or bubbles after application and that no corners or edges of PPF are visible.
Do you use knives during Paint Protection Film application?
No. We have invested in one of the latest plotter machines which cuts out specially designed panel shapes meaning they can be directly applied, so there’s no need to cut on the car!
What happens if my Paint Protection Film gets scratched?
Don’t worry! We use SunTek and XPEL Ultimate Paint Protection film which is self healing. This means the polymer that the film is made up of has a memory – simply apply heat to the scratched area using a hair dryer, heat gun or hot water. This will stimulate the memory of the polymer, causing it to return to its original position, making those annoying scratches disappear.
Will the Sun fade Paint Protection Film wrapped paintwork?
Yes. Our Paint Protection Film allows the Sun’s UV rays to fade the paintwork of the car at the same rate as unprotected panels.
Does a Paint Protection Film wrapped car require special maintenance?
No. The car can be washed and waxed as regular.
How long do I have to wait to get my car Paint Protection Film wrapped if I've just had it resprayed?
The time that the bodyshop (you used) recommend you to wait to wax the paint of your car should be the same time you will need to wait to have PPF applied.
Can I use ceramic coatings on a Paint Protection Film wrapped car?
Yes. Gtechniq and other ceramic coatings can be applied – the properties and memory of the Film won’t be affected.
Can Paint Protection Film be removed?
Yes. Very easily in-fact and does not leave any marks or residue.
What is the difference between Paint Protection Film and Vinyl Wrap?
PPF is designed for protecting your car against stone chips, scuffs, scratches, birdlime and harsh weather, where as vinyl is designed to change the aesthetics of you car.
Vinly can also protect the paintwork of you car, but not to the same extent as PPF will.
Do you offer Courtesy Cars?
Yes, Courtesy Cars are available when you have your car PPF’d at GVE. We have a range of vehicles to suit your needs.
Do we take parts off cars during the Paint Protection Film installation process?
We use a state of the art plotter to cut specialised designed patterns. These patterns are then applied to your car without having to remove parts.
However, if you want a seamless finish, our skilled technicians will remove panels in order to apply the Film, allowing us to wrap around the edges of the panels to reduce the visibility of the film as much as possible.
