If you take pride in the value and appearance of your vehicle, drop by Extreme Audio in Mechanicsville or Midlothian and ask about 3M Scotchgard Pro paint protection film. Also known as clear bra, this transparent film is applied on top of your paint to protect it from scratches, chips, scuffs and stains. Read on to find out how it works and why it’s a great way to keep your car, truck or SUV looking like new.
What Is Paint Protection Film?
Our 3M Scotchgard Pro Series 4.0 Paint Protection Film is an 8 mil-thick urethane film that bonds directly to the paint or clearcoat on your vehicle’s hood, bumpers, headlights, fenders, mirror covers or anywhere you want added protection. The durable urethane absorbs impacts from stones, gravel, sand, road salt and bug impacts to keep your paint looking pristine. The film also resists staining from tree sap, bird droppings, bug splatter and road tar.
Interestingly, 3M PPF includes self-healing properties that will absorb minor scuffs and scratches when the film is exposed to heat from a hairdryer, hot water or the sun on a hot summer day.
How Do We Install PPF?
Once we’ve cleaned and degreased the panel to be protected, our computer-controlled plotter cuts the film to fit the vehicle contours. Next, we remove the backing, then apply a slip agent that allows us to adjust and position the film on your vehicle. Finally, we remove the slip agent from beneath the film while ensuring it is positioned perfectly.
Paint Film Warranty
3M backs Scotchgard paint film with a 10-year warranty against manufacturing defects that includes yellowing, bubbling and cracking. The warranty is good across the US and Canada and is transferrable to a new vehicle owner with a copy of the original paperwork and receipt from Extreme Audio.
Why Your Vehicle Needs Paint Film
The paint on new cars and trucks is thinner and softer than ever. These characteristics make the surface prone to chips, scuffs and scratches that can require unsightly paint touch-ups or a complete respray. Protecting the impact-prone areas of your vehicle with paint film helps to maintain the value of your vehicle while keeping it looking great.
