Paint Protection Film

What Is Paint Protection Film?

Paint protection, also known as clear bra, provides exceptional preservation for your vehicle’s paint. Safeguard your valuable investment by applying clear paint protection film to critical areas or the entire vehicle. Paint protection serves as the ultimate defense against harsh weather conditions, acid rain, gravel, sand, road debris, corrosive bug acids, and bird droppings. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the pristine look of your vehicle’s paint and preserving its showroom shine for years to come.

Featuring a lightweight and transparent design, paint protection film seamlessly adheres to your vehicle’s exterior, effectively preventing fading and damage to the paint. Specifically engineered to absorb light scratches and scuffs, the film prevents the aging of your car, truck, or van’s appearance. With paint protection, you no longer need to worry about damaging the paint on your vehicle. Paint protection film is the best way to maintain the look of your vehicle and protect your investment. When it is time to replace your vehicle, it will still look great – making it more desirable and helping you demand a higher price. Rahal Paint Protection employs the most experienced installers and is committed to keeping your vehicle looking new.

Whether you live in Indianapolis, Williams Creek, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield, Big Springs, Zionsville, Royalton, Lawrence, Woodbury, Pleasant Acres, Northfield, Whitestown, Rocky Ripple, or surrounding areas, Rahal Paint Protection is your solution to protecting your vehicle with our quality paint protection film.

Protecting Your Car With Premium Quality Products

Paint is only original once. Protect the value of your vehicle whether it’s a Tesla daily driver or your Porsche weekend warrior and maintain the integrity of its paint with paint protection film. In most cases, paint protection film is less expensive than repainting those unsightly rock chips or scratches to the original factory quality. Not to mention, the factory paint is best! Some vehicles will lose value when they’ve been repainted. Therefore, factory paint is usually better than aftermarket paint. So, keep your paint looking new with paint protection film.

XPEL’s paint protection film serves as a robust shield, effectively protecting the paint of your car, truck, or van. Utilizing crystal clear and energy absorbent polyurethane material, XPEL’s film is precisely computer cut from a database of templates tailored to your vehicle. Our team of expert installers at Rahal ensures a professional and meticulous installation process. Once the premium film is securely bonded to your car’s paint, it initiates long-lasting protection and preservation. Bid farewell to worries about peeling, cracking, fading, aging, yellowing, or blistering damage to your valuable investment. With each Xpel protection application your car has a 10 year warranty.

Paint Protection Film Coverage Options

Often referred to as “PPF,” XPEL Self-Healing Paint Protection Film is perfect for protecting high impact areas, or even doing full coverage car wraps . Keep your paint safe from chips, scratches, and road debris with glossy ULTIMATE PLUS™ or satin finish STEALTH™ today.

The front bumper is the best place to start with PPF and to do at the very least. If you want to add more coverage, the next area to consider is one of the hood/fender/mirror kits. There are two coverage options here: 1) A partial so only the front part of the hood and fenders are protected. This is lower cost but there’s an edge to the film where it stops on those panels. Or 2) A full hood/fender/mirror kit that covers the entire panel meaning you can’t see where the film starts or ends.

XPEL Ultimate Plus

In 2011, XPEL revolutionized the industry with the world’s first self-healing paint protection film. ULTIMATE PLUS ™ raises the bar once again with an unparalleled high gloss finish & improved impact protection. ULTIMATE PLUS is designed to provide you with the peace of mind you need on the open road.

XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS film is formulated from a combination of advanced elastomeric polymers that prevent the film from discoloring, yellowing or hazing. XPEL’s high quality paint protection film has the technology to rejuvenate itself from swirl marks and light scratches and is virtually invisible once applied. This exclusive film safeguards against harsh weather conditions, acid rain, stones, sand, road debris, bug acids and bird droppings.

XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS protects the paint on your vehicle from damage such as paint chipping and peeling which is caused by over exposure to sun, harsh climates and weather conditions. Installation of paint protection film is always provided by one of Rahal professionally trained and experienced paint protection installers. Protect the paint on your vehicle with the finest paint protection film on the market, installed by the experts at Rahal.

XPEL Stealth

XPEL STEALTH was strategically developed with the exact same technologically advanced self healing and protective features as XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS, but brought to you with a satin finish. This exquisite satin finish paint protection film aims to preserve matte paint and keep it looking as sharp as the day it was painted. XPEL STEALTH disappears once applied but protects against swirl marks, light scratches, harsh weather conditions, acid rain, stones, sand, road debris, bug acids and bird droppings.

Perhaps you want to change the glossy finish on your vehicle to a matte finish, XPEL STEALTH allows you to create a whole new look and feel to your ride without an overly expensive and permanent new paint job. Installation of paint protection film is always provided by one of Rahal professionally trained and experienced paint protection installers.

This is one of the benefits of paint protection film. It is not a permanent application, but we recommend professional removal.

We recommend letting the paint cure for at least 30-60 days prior to installing paint protection film (depending on the paint process). Gases from the paint need to escape before being trapped between the surface of the vehicle and the film. If not fully cured, the film can discolor from the inside out and/or the adhesive on the film can fail from the paint gases.
Installations typically take a minimum of 2 days this includes vehicle prep, film installation, and final review with quality control. However, the amount of coverage and level of installation difficulty will determine the installation time. So, the process could be longer. We do not rush the job – we take the time and care needed to have a great outcome.

The patterns are cut in-house on our plotting machines, using state-of-the-art technology. Once the excess material is removed, the areas to be covered are sprayed with installation fluid. Then, the kit is peeled away from a release liner and transferred to your car. The kit is moved into position atop the installation fluid to allow for proper alignment. Once the kit is positioned, a squeegee is used to extract the installation fluid which allows the paint protection film to adhere to the vehicle’s surface.

Film is maintained/cared for in the same fashion as clear coat. Please click on the Film Care link.
