Paint protection film is a clear, thin film that is applied to the paint of a vehicle to protect it from scratches, stains, and chips. The film is nearly invisible and does not affect the appearance of the paint. However, if the film is scratched, it will become visible and may need to be replaced. Although paint protection film is durable, it is not scratch-proof. Therefore, it is important to take care not to scratch the film when washing or waxing your car. If the film does become scratched, you can try to buff out the scratch with a soft cloth. If this does not work, the best option is to replace the damaged section of film. Fortunately, paint protection film is relatively inexpensive and easy to install. Therefore, even if you do need to replace it, you will not have to spend a lot of time or money doing so.
