How Long Does Xpel PPF Last?

Paint protection film, or PPF, is a form of automotive paint protection that is unmatched in terms of total protection. While there are other products on the market, such as waxes, ceramic coatings, or vinyl wraps, PPF provides superior impact absorption and durability. Once installed, PPF offers a “set-it-and-forget-it” solution that requires no further attention. In this blog post, we’ll explore the durability and longevity of PPF.

Durability and Longevity

The best part of PPF is undoubtedly its longevity. High-quality films from Xpel can last up to 10 years, with a minimum lifespan of five years. When a manufacturer offers this type of warranty, it is a testament to the quality of their product.

Factors That Affect Longevity

There are three main factors that impact the longevity of PPF: preparation, application, and environmental agents.

Preparation: Proper preparation is crucial to the success of any PPF installation. If the surface is wet, dirty, damaged, or rough, the film won’t adhere well and will eventually peel off. The prep work for an application of PPF is the most time-consuming and important step of the process.

Application: The application of PPF is a complex operation that requires experience and expertise. Technicians must prevent bubbles, creases, or folds that can cause poor results. It’s essential to work with a shop like CJ’s because our technicians have the requisite tools and training to ensure a flawless PPF installation.

Environmental Agents: PPF is designed to take abuse so that your car doesn’t have to. However, it will eventually wear out over time. The longevity of the film is partly dependent on how much abuse it is exposed to. Cars that are used for daily commutes will have a shorter lifespan than those used on weekends for fun drives.
