Paint Protection Film Process
At Detail Doctors, we take the protection of your vehicle's paint seriously. Our Paint Protection Film (PPF) process is meticulously designed to provide the best results and ensure your car's pristine appearance. Here's a step-by-step breakdown of our PPF application:
Step 1: Thorough Washing To guarantee optimal adhesion of the PPF, we start with a thorough washing using professional wax and gloss-free soap, ensuring that the surface is clean and ready for the installation.
Step 2: Industrial Fallout Solution We utilize an industrial fallout solution to remove any residue or airborne particles that could hinder the proper installation of the PPF, ensuring a smooth and flawless application.
Step 3: Professional Clay Bar Treatment Using a professional clay bar, we meticulously remove any remaining particles or surface imperfections, leaving your vehicle with a like-new, pristine finish.
Step 4: Prepping for Paint Correction After another round of washing, we carefully tape off all trim and plastic areas, preparing the surface for the paint correction process.
Step 5: Paint Correction Our highly skilled technicians employ both compounding and polishing techniques to achieve a glass-like finish. By eliminating any scratches or swirls on the surface, we ensure that your vehicle looks immaculate before the PPF installation.
Step 6: Air Pressurized Booth Wipe Down In our air pressurized booth, we give your vehicle a meticulous wipe down to remove any additional particles, guaranteeing a clean and smooth surface for the PPF application.
Step 7: Precision-Cut XPEL PPF We use XPEL PPF, renowned for its quality and durability. Our factory-trained technicians, using XPEL's Design Access Program (DAP) and our In-house Plotter, precisely cuts the film to fit your specific make and model, ensuring a seamless and perfect fitment.
Step 8: Careful PPF Installation The PPF installation process is performed with utmost care and precision. Our experienced team ensures that the film bonds seamlessly with the vehicle's surface, providing comprehensive protection from various environmental hazards.
