When enthusiasts buy their dream cars they are not only passionate about the style and appearance, but they also have high standards in preserving the new car look and feel as long as possible. Little do some folks know that there is a product available that can do just that, at least on the outside. Paint protection film, or Clear Bra, is a clear protective film that absorbs impacts from stones and other road debris and contributes greatly in preserving that showroom new appearance for years.

When Ted Geisinger purchased his 2011 Porsche Boxster, he too was unfamiliar with Paint Protection Film. I had no idea this stuff existed! I wish I had known about this product when I purchased my Nissan 370Z a few years ago."

The previous owner of Teds Boxster already had XPEL'S ULTIMATE Paint Protection film installed on the hood. Gathering more information about clear bra installation he immediately scheduled to add coverage to the fenders, bumper and mirrors. Now I can drive knowing my paint is protected, unlike my Z. Its a shame I didnt know about this sooner.

XPEL factory installer Chris Thomas applied XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film, which boasts a self healing clear coat and a slippery, stain-resistant finish. The film was wrapped around the edges of the body panels on the car, so that the product could not be detected once the installation was completed.

With protection like this, Ted can enjoy not only the performance, but the appearance of his Porsche for years to come.

XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra

XPEL ULTIMATE leadsthe industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating.

Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your cars factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving.

Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties

Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wirebrush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source.

Not all Patternsare created equal

At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern youll have less to worry about, since the installer willnot be trimming the film on your vehicle.Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished.

Contrary to what some may believe its possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. WithXPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible,for example around theparking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision.
