Frequently Asked Questions
Paint Protective Film FAQS
Paint protection film (PPF), or “stoneguard” as it is commonly known, is one of the most efficient ways to preserve the shine on your vehicle. With it’s tough, durable and virtually invisible application, PPF film protects your vehicle’s finish, without changing the appearance of your vehicle.
PPF film works by creating a moisture barrier, protecting vulnerable areas on your vehicle such as front bumpers, hoods, side mirrors, door handle cavities, door edges, rocker panels, and rear fender panels. Using a paint protective film wrap keeps your vehicle looking newer longer, and can enhance the resale value of your vehicle down the road.
Paint Protection Film (PPF) can be professionally installed anywhere you want to protect your vehicle finish from scratches, chips, stains and other potentially damaging elements.
Some places on your vehicle you may want to protect:
- Rocker panels
(from sand and stones kicked up by tires)
- Trunk ledges
(from golf clubs, luggage and strollers)
- Hoods, bumpers and mirror backs
(from flying gravel, bug acids and tar)
- Door handle cavities and door edges
(from rings, keys, belt buckles and purses)
- Full hoods, trunks and roofs
(from bird droppings and tree sap)
- PPF Wrap

Yes it can be removed. The PPF film is intended to be permanent, but can be removed without damage to the finish.

Absolutely! If a scratch isn’t deep enough to fully penetrate the film, it will return to its original state. Although only to a certain extent of course. Protective Paint Film is designed to self heal light scratches and light stone chips. The top coat of the film is the self-healing layer and is approximately 13 microns thick. PPF film has elastic qualities, and heat causes the particles that compose it to return to their lowest energy state (smooth). If that layer is penetrated, the film will not heal.
You can wash your vehicle as you would before the PPF film was applied. If using a power-washer to clean your vehicle, it is recommended to avoid getting too close with the spray to any edges, as this will help prevent the film from lifting.
