XPEL Paint Protection (Auto Detailing)

By Derand Automotive

5 Reasons You Should Have Auto Detailing Done or Use Our Paint Protection Film on Your Vehicle

Clear paint protection film covers the exterior of your vehicle primarily installed on your car hood, side mirrors, fenders and side skirts, however the complete vehicle can be "wrapped". This urethane film cover, also called a "clear bra", protects your vehicle from scratches, stains and chipping. Here are the 5 top reasons why you should contact Derand Motorsports to quote for a clear bra installation on your vehicle:
  1. Paint Protection Film Protects Your Vehicles Exterior from Stone Chips, Scratches and Bug Splatter and Other Debris.

    Frequent and even light driving on Canadian roads and Highways subjects your vehicle to road debris, stones, winter salt and other things that seem to be magnetically pulled to the front of your vehicle causing unavoidable chips and scratches. Unless you have our paint protection film installed on your vehicle you will undoubtedly begin to see the damage to your vehicle. Protecting your vehicle from damage with our paint protection film will keep its exterior looking good and increase resale value.

  2. You Won't Even Know It's There

    Our clear paint protection film covering lets your car's finish shine through while shielding it from damage. Xpel Paint Protection Film is the number one choice of PPF films at Derand Motorsports. The installation is a painstaking process which uses a combination of soapy water, alcohol and heat. Because we use a top-quality material applied by our qualified professional installer, you won't even know it's there.

  3. Originally Developed to the U.S. Military So You Know It's Tough

    Clear urethane protection film has been used to protect military vehicles in areas prone to gravel and rock chips since the Vietnam War. It was originally designed to protect helicopter blades from airborne debris. Repairing the blades proved too costly, so the military developed clear film to shield the blades from gravel and stones. When debris hit the blades, it would damage the film, which could be replaced easily. The military continues to use protective films on its vehicles. The clear film was especially effective against damage from dust during Operation Desert Storm in the early 1990s. The advantages of automotive protective film were first noticed by race car drivers in the 1980s, who began using urethane film to protect their vehicles from dust, gravel and loose rubber (also known as marbles) from track aprons and off-road races. Paint protection film is still the best solution to protecting a vehicle subject to track use and Canadian roads.

  4. Custom Installation Offers Better Protection

    Derand Clear bra film installation is available as a pre-cut computer designed kit or it can be custom cut and installed. Custom kits are more expensive because additional labor is involved. This provides the best coverage over all vehicle surfaces, including wrapped edges. Custom installation is recommended over pre-cut kits for a smoother, seamless look and more comprehensive coverage, especially for vintage, classic and exotic vehicles as there may not be a computer template available for those vehicles.
