What is paint protection film
The clear coat is designed to heal surface scratches and common swirl marks that occur during routine washing of the car. If the scratch penetrates through the film's clear coat, it will not heal.
The XPEL difference
Our entire line of films is hand drawn, measured, and tested manually. Our ULTIMATE line uses special elastomeric polymer technology that allows the film to HEAL ITSELF from scratches or swirl marks in a matter of minutes. We developed our Design Access Program (DAP) Software to provide the most customizable and precise coverage in the industry. This allows our distributors to offer products that fit the needs of their customers while eliminating unnecessary waste. All of our workmanship is backed by our extensive warranties.
We promise that each one of our products will protect your investment with best-in-class durability, performance, appearance, and overall quality. Our quest for excellence doesn’t stop there. We ensure that your automobile protection products are only installed by highly qualified experts by providing custom training programs and extensive support for all of our partners.
XPEL Protection Film - ULTIMATE:
Is a very low surface energy lm designed to resist staining and offers superior environmental resistance and gloss retention.
The clear coat employs special elastomeric polymers that allow scratches in the surface to “heal” over time, eliminating the need for frequent polishing to maintain a just installed appearance.
XPEL Protection Film - ULTIMATE is coated with ultra clear high performance acrylic adhesivewhich has excellent adhesion on a broad range of surfaces, while resisting disturbances during installation.
Will Opti-Coat Pro or CQuartz Finest Resrve hurt the film?
Sealants such as Opti-Coat Pro or CQuartz Finest Resrve will not hurt the film or interfere with our ULTIMATE paint protection film’s self healing properties.
Can/should Opti-Coat Pro or CQuartz Finest Resrve or similar coating be applied to the car before the film is installed?
We do NOT recommend applying sealants such as Opti-Coat Pro or CQuartz Finest Resrve to the parts of the car that will be covered with film. The low surface energy of paint sealant products such as these will cause adhesion problems both during installation and over the life of the product. In addition, it is worth noting that there is really no benefit to applying sealant to the paint before the film anyway, since the film will provide far more environmental protection to the paint than a sealant ever could.
How deep of a scratch will heal?
The clear coat is designed to heal surface scratches and common swirl marks that occur during routine washing of the car. If the scratch penetrates through the film’s clear coat, it will not heal.
How long should I wait to apply your product if my car has been repainted?
You will need to contact us and see what we recommend. The time will vary depending on the paint system the body shop used. In any case, the time that they recommend you should wait to wax the paint, is the same time you will need to wait to install our product.
How does XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film heal itself?
XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film uses a special polymer in its clear coat that flows even though it is cured. This allows the clear coat to find its natural level again after being disturbed on the surface.
How long does it take for a scratch to heal?
The time for a scratch to heal depends on the severity of the scratch and the ambient temperature. Minor scratches usually heal in one hour at room temperature (72°F). In warmer climates, healing time will be shorter. The healing process can be accelerated at any time by pouring hot water over the scratched area.
Can I wax the film when I wax the rest of the car?
Unlike most paint protection films on the market, XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection film can be waxed and sealed just like your paint. Though XPEL Flawless Finish Paint Protection Film Sealant is still the preferred product, Any automotive wax or sealant may be used.
How many times will the clear coat heal itself?
With this technology, there is no limit to the number of times the clear coat can heal itself. As long as the clear coat is not penetrated it will heal over and over again.
How long will the clear coat last?
Depending on how the film is cared for, the clear coat can last indefinitely. Regular washing and waxing will keep the clear coat in top condition for years to come.
How does XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film resist staining?
The clear coat on XPEL ULTIMATE has a very low surface energy, which makes it extremely difficult for organic compounds to stick to the film. Insects, bird droppings and environmental contaminants (which would normally cause yellowing) such as road oils, exhaust smoke and pollution can be removed during regular washing.

What if a stain does not come off the film during normal washing?
If ordinary car wash or soap and water will not remove a stain, there are a variety products available to do the job. In most cases simple isopropyl rubbing alcohol will remove anything on the surface of the film. In cases of more severe staining, or where something has been left on the film for a long period of time, a sparing amount of lacquer thinner can be used. Bug and tar remover available at any auto parts store is also effective. If you are unsure about the use of any other chemical on the surface of the film, please contact us and we'll help you out!
