What does self-healing of Paint Protection Film mean?

Paint protection film is a transparent protective coating that is applied to a vehicle’s paint. It functions as a shield between your car’s delicate paint and the outdoors, preventing environmental factors, scratches, and even UV rays.

Self-healing qualities of some paint protection films, such as XPEL, allow the PPF to actually “heal” itself. When exposed to heat, the film’s layers work together to preserve a vehicle’s paint and “repair” surface-level damage. These layers are as follows:

• A release liner 3mm thick

• A 1.6mm thick acrylic adhesive that firmly adheres to the contours of your vehicle.

• A 6mm polyurethane coating that prevents paint chipping by distributing energy uniformly across a larger area 

How does it function?

The adhesive enables the protective coating to stick securely to the vehicle’s surface. It may also be removed without causing any damage to the car. The transparent layer protects the film against stains and fading. It also keeps the film from yellowing, a typical issue with low-quality films.

Using a heat gun, apply heat to the injured area to allow the layers beneath to reorganize and the scratches to vanish.

If you don’t have a heat gun, use hot water. By leaving your automobile in the sun, you allow the protective covering to capture the sun’s heat and renew itself. As you see the scratches on your vehicle’s surface fade away, you know that the protective coating is self-healing.

Even after being marked several times, the vehicle film retains its integrity.
