How Long Does Paint Protection Film Last?

October 6, 2020

When you make an investment, you want it to last. That’s why you added paint protection film to your car or truck, to make sure the exterior of your vehicle stays showroom-ready no matter what. But how long will your investment in paint protection film last? The Paint Protection Film that we offer at Tint World® lasts 5-10 years. So, how can you get the most bang for your buck and make it last as long as possible? Here are some tips from our paint protection film experts.

Get a Professional Installation

Hands down, the first step towards making your paint protection film last is to get a professional, high-quality installation. At Tint World®, our PRO-CUT™ computer cut system makes sure your paint protection film fits like a glove, and our installation experts know all the tricks to get it just right. In addition, our installations come with a five-year guarantee, so we stand behind our work.

Get the Right Care

Maintaining your paint protection film can also extend its lifespan. Wash and wax your car regularly using gentle, non-abrasive products. Avoid high-pressure hoses, buffers and polishers, too — and, yes, that means steering clear of automatic car wash machines. Waxing is vital to keeping the film sealed, as its porous nature allows water and dirt under the film. Consider getting a professional detailing package, too.

Add Protection

If you’re worried about regular waxing, why not add another layer of protection to your paint protection film? Nano Ceramic Coating as a topcoat can keep water and dirt from getting under the film and extend the life of your film. These two services combined give your vehicle a protective layer and lasting shine that can’t be beat. At Tint World®, we understand your love of your car, and we have what it takes to ensure that its looks last as long as you want them to.
