Even exposure to the sun and its harmful UV rays can cause your exterior to become broken down and faded. A clear bra and even a full wrap of your car provides a long lasting protection. The return on investment is no match with any other type of protective solution out there.

Have your paint protection film applied by Protex professionals
You can’t simply apply a protective coating to your car and drive off without any worries about scratches or fading. Today’s cars require much more care and attention, especially if you’re driving an expensive sports car or luxury sedan. That’s why you should consider getting a professional install done.
Choosing good PPF products such as XPEL can make a huge difference in how your car looks.
PPF has the amazing ability to protect your car from damage by absorbing impacts and safeguarding your paint from rocks, but it is not bulletproof. The car can be punctured, but most of the time, the paint protection film takes the brunt of the force and protects the interior. Sometimes, if the object that hits the vehicle is sharp enough or the velocity is high enough, it may penetrate the car, but the damage will likely be minor compared to having no protection at all.
Do I need paint protection film for my car?
The coating helps to protect against the visual effects of wear and tear, including road grime, dirt, and dings. This is ideal for vehicles of all types, from a Ford Mustang to a Porsche 911, because it provides protection for both new and used cars alike. Vehicles in very good condition are much more likely to sell at a high price. High quality paint protection film therefore translates into a significant boost in the market worth of a car, especially on high-end vehicles.
You need to choose an experienced, high-caliber installer that’s associated with well-known, top-notch brands on the market such as XPEL. Protex Canada offers top of the line XPEL products in Gatineau : with a PPF installed by professionals, you can drive off with peace of mind!

Frequently asked questions about Protex’s paint protection film
What is the difference between PPF and wraps?
Simply put, the purpose of car wraps such as vinyl wraps is cosmetic: adding a vinyl wrap changes the aesthetic of your car but doesn’t offer additional protection. On the other hand, paint protection film provides your car with protection against chips and impacts.
If you are looking to protect your car, we recommend you look towards ceramic coating or paint protection film solutions. Do not hesitate to contact a Protex dealer in Gatineau to learn more!
Can paint protection film damage a new car's paint?
PPF is completely safe to apply on your new car. It doesn’t harm your car at all if it is installed properly by trained professionals. These installers will fit, cut, place, and activate the paint protection films during the installation process before removing any excess material using a squeegee.
When applied correctly, there are no issues using PPFs like XPEL’s paint protection film. These protective paint films also come with a warranty coverage
How long does it take to apply Paint Protection Film to my vehicle?
It depends on the amount of coverage, as well size and type of vehicle. Basic protection packages may take as little as an hour and a half for the adhesive to bind properly. Premium packages offer more coverage and require additional time – roughly between three hours to six hours. An entire vehicle coverage can take up to 3 days to be completed.
Do I need to wash the vehicle before the installation appointment?
It is always better that the vehicle is as clean as possible before your application. That allows you and your Certified Protex Installer to properly inspect the aesthetic condition of the vehicle before treatment. Your Protex Installer will always do a thorough cleaning so that the application surfaces are impeccable.
Does the protective film camouflage the defects of my paint?
It depends on the defect in question. Our Protex Team of Installers are often able to do minor paint correction on site, and can advise you on possible solutions as needed.
After installation, how long should I wait before washing my car?
We recommend waiting 48 hours for washing so that the film is well adhered to surfaces. As the installation is a wet application some drying time is required. Remember to always be extra cautious with a pressure washer OR contact-free carwash. Blowing water close to the edges might end on lifting film and this is not warrantied. The adhesive on the film is strong but remember it is not welded on the car!
Can I protect a used vehicle that already has KMs on it?
Absolutely! With the right preparation techniques that may include paint touch up, application of the film will protect surfaces against any further damage.
Is the automotive paint protection film really effective?
Yes! The ultimate goal of the film is to prevent environmental damage, paint abrasions and minor scratches, and absorb small impacts. We all know appearance is everything and nothing does a better job of protecting the exterior finish of your vehicle.
Is it possible to remove the film after application?
Our Protex Certified Installers are also trained in the safe removal of film, leaving the paint as it was the day it rolled off the production line! If for some reason you want to remove the film personally, we recommend using a steam or heat gun to safely soften the adhesive for removal.
How do I maintain the film?
Regular washing with warm water and annual waxing will maintain its lustrous appearance and natural shape. All in all, the same way you would maintain your painted surfaces. Hot water and heat from the sun will also self-heal minor abrasions and light scratches in the film! Your local Protex service center will leave you with care instructions after the film has been applied. ***You have to be careful with pressure wash machines and the flow of water may lift the paint protection film if washed too close from the edges*** Yes, we can cover all the smooth surfaces of a vehicle, both outside and inside.
Can I have my vehicle fully wrapped in PPF?
Yes, we can cover all the smooth surfaces of a vehicle, both outside and inside.
