Nothing But the Truth: Busting Myths on Paint Protection Films

Paint Protection Films (PPFs) have been around for almost forty years, and during this time, technologies surrounding this product have made quantum leaps. Even with all the information that's already available, we have met so many people who have unanswered questions, and we are here to disband some of the myths and misconceptions about these films

Myth #1: Paint Protection Films will yellow and crack in the sun. You've heard it, we've heard it, so there must be some truth to it. Right? The answer is "Yes" and "No". While we have noticed that older PVC-based paint protection films tend to succumb to problems like discoloration and premature aging, the newer TPU-based films are much better equipped at combating these issues. This is especially true with OnerPro paint protection films, which have been subjected to SGS-testing to ensure that they can withstand even the harshest road conditions.

Myth #2: Paint Protection Films are difficult to install. As with any other form of detailing, paint protection film installation is a practiced skill that takes time to hone. But is it any more difficult than other types of restorations or finishing? Not really. Apart from a basic understanding of the product and procedures, the most important thing during installations is an attention to detail. Our OnerPro training team is ready to help teach your staff all the necessary skills right at your shop so that you'll be ready to install OnerPro PPF in no time at all. Myth #3: The adhesive on Paint Protection Films damages car paint.

This is a tricky one. The reason why most paint protection films are said to damage car paints is because their manufacturers want to ensure that the films will stay on for as long as possible. The strong adhesive is a double-edged sword; although it can keep the film on the car, it might also leave behind hard-to-remove glue residues on the car paint when the film is eventually lifted. OnerPro paint protection films strike the delicate balance between durability and maneuverability. The Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) on OnerPro films ensures that once secured on the car paint surface, the films will not budge. At the same time, they can be removed easily with the help of compressed air.

With all the different information and opinions floating around out there, it can be hard to discern the truths from the lies. At the end of the day, quality paint protection films can shield your car paint from a world of damages. With an experienced and reliable installer, paint protection films can be your answer to keeping your car paint looking showroom ready for years to come.
