Frequently Asked Questions

1. How is XPEL Paint Protection Self-Healing?

How is XPEL Paint Protection Self-Healing?

How does the XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film heal itself?

The XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film has a special polymer component in its clear coat finish that flows even after the film has been cured. This allows the clear coat to return to its natural shape again even after a scratch or disturbance.

How deep can a scratch be before it will no longer heal?

While this self-healing technology is state of the art, it is not perfect. The clear coat finish is designed to heal minor surface scratches and marks that come from driving or routine car washes. If the scratch penetrates the clear coat of the film or significantly breaks through the film itself, it will not heal on its own. In this case, please contact the Willis Auto Accessories department for assistance.

How long does it take for a scratch to heal?

The self-healing properties of this paint protection film depend on the severity of the scratch itself and the temperature. For minor scratches, you can expect them to be healed in an hour at room temperature (72°F). If you live in a hotter climate or it is summer, the healing time for minor scratches will be shorter. If you need to accelerate the healing process, you can do so by pouring hot water over the scratch.

How many times can the clear coat heal itself

There is no set limit on the number of times that this technology can heal itself; minor scratches and routine marks will heal quickly as long as you have the film. As long as the clear coat is maintained, the paint protection film will heal over and over during its lifetime.

How long does the clear coat last?

Depending on how well the film is cared for, the clear coat can last indefinitely. You can maintain the clear coat for years to come with regular washing and waxing will keep the clear coat looking like new, just as you would normally care for your car.

2. How resistant is XPEL Paint Protection to staining?
Willis Volvo auto accessories center

How resistant is XPEL Paint Protection to staining?

How does XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film resist staining?

You can think of our paint protection film like Teflon for your car. 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. Things that would normally cause yellowing such as insects, bird droppings and environmental contaminants such as road oils, exhaust smoke and pollution can be removed during regular washing with this protection film.

I have a stain that won’t come off with normal washing. What do I do?

If an at home or professional car wash didn’t do the trick, you can find a variety of products to help you out. Generally speaking, rubbing alcohol will remove anything on the film’s surface; however, with more severe stains or if something was left on the film for a long time, a small amount of lacquer thinner can be used to remove the stain. Professional bug or tar remover is also effective at removing more stubborn stains. . If you are unsure about the use of any other chemical on the surface of the film, please contact XPEL Support at 800-447-9928 for assistance or contact the Willis Auto Accessories department at 515-252-8361.

3. How do I care for XPEL Paint Protection Film?

How do I care for XPEL Paint Protection Film?

Do I care for XPEL ULTIMATE paint protection different from other films?

Fortunately for our customers, XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film is low maintenance and requires less work than any other paint protection film on the market.

XPEL’s general care instructions are:

  • Wait 48 hours after installation to wash your car
  • Remove insect or other stains with bug and tar remover
  • Stubborn stains can be removed with 99% isopropyl alcohol or lacquer thinner. Take care to keep these chemicals off the vehicle’s paint.
  • Seal with XPEL Flawless Finish Paint Protection Film Sealant at least once every 3 months to preserve high gloss
  • Light scratches in the film will self-heal in 20-30 minutes at room temperature. In colder conditions, or to accelerate the process, pour warm water (120°F) over the affected area

Can I wax the film when I wax the rest of the car?

XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection film can be waxed and sealed just like your paint. Most films on the market do not tolerate waxing, but XPEL ULTIMATE is more durable so you don’t have to worry about maintaining that part of your car differently. Though XPEL Flawless Finish Paint Protection Film Sealant is still the preferred product, any automotive wax or sealant may be used without damaging the film.

Will XPEL Paint Protection Film make the paint underneath the film fade at a different rate?

No, you don’t need to worry about this. XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film has maximum clarity, so it allows UV to pass through the film and fade the paint underneath at the same rate as the exposed paint.

4. Is installation different?

Is installation different?

Do you install XPEL Paint Protection the same way as other films?

XPEL ULTIMATE is an extremely installer friendly film when applied using the recommended installation guidelines from XPEL. All paint protection films on the market install at least slightly different from one another, but the expert technicians in the Willis Auto Accessories department are efficient and accurate when it comes to installing XPEL products.

Can I stretch the film if it has an automotive clear-coat on top?

Due to the intense durability of the material and the density of the clear coat, you will feel some extra force when stretching XPEL Paint Protection film, but you are still able to stretch it like any other paint protection film.

5. How long does the install on Xpel take?

How long does the install on Xpel take?

It depends on the package, but it can be from 2 hours to 36 hours.

6. What happens when I get in an accident?

What happens when I get in an accident?

If I get into an accident will my insurance company pay to replace the damaged Xpel paint protection film?

From our experience insurance companies will pay to replace the damaged Xpel if you are in an accident.
