How long will your car really stay looking new?
No matter what you do or how careful you are with your vehicle, you will accumulate rock chips over time. Regardless of what marketing you read and see – Ceramic Coatings, waxes, sealants, and polishes do NOT offer ANY rock chip protection.
The truth: you will accumulate rock chips immediately.
Irrelevant to how you treat your new vehicle and how you drive it – you will accumulate rock chips and other imperfections that will cause its appearance to diminish over time.
Repainting a single panel usually isn’t the case when it comes to rock chips because the majority of the automotive paint these days contains metallic flakes and other color additives or enhancers that can only be a perfect match from the factory. That means you’re going to be paying to blend in surrounding panels as well.
Touch-up paint isn’t really a suitable repair beyond cosmetics. Touch-up paint will still fade away over time and some smaller abrasions like sand impacts and smaller road embers will eventually become so compromised that you’ll be visiting an auto body shop much sooner than you anticipated.
The clear coating on newer vehicles is extremely thin. Compared to 5 years ago, the paint is still the same but now manufacturers are simply applying less – that means less material to protect your vehicle.
Paint Protection Film AKA Clear Bra will protect your vehicle for years when properly installed!
Here’s the bottom line – the PPF that Total Detailing installs on your vehicle will help prevent your vehicle’s perfect finish from rock chips and abrasions that occur over normal use and time. There is no other option for rock chip protection.
This is a simple comparison that you can make in a matter of seconds – if you look at any particular vehicle that is more than 1 year old you will notice the front bumper and hood will have rock chips and road rashing. If you compare the area of the truck and rear of the vehicle you’ll notice that those issues won’t be present.
If you think that your new vehicle won’t accumulate rock chips that quickly that simple comparison will be enough.
This is how Paint Protection Film will directly benefit you.
PPF aka Paint Protection Film is typically an 8mil thick layer of polyurethane film. This film is stretched over the surface of your vehicle and protects those surfaces from flying particulate, stones, sand and other impact-related debris you will encounter on a daily basis.
Most paint protection films offer self-healing technology – meaning that exposing your vehicle to heat and some light agitation of the surface will allow mild abrasions to heal out. Our Ceramic Pro KAVACA Paint Protection Film is INSTANT HEALING – meaning scratches and swirls will disappear immediately.
Most Clear Bra PPF offers some type of Top Coat protective film that is built into the film from the manufacturer that helps to prevent fading into the sun. We often install PPF on headlights to prevent them from fading and yellowing over time. Typically pairing PPF with a ceramic coating will give you the best of both works in terms of protection.
High-Quality paint protection film usually offers a self-cleaning feature. This means that the time it takes to wash your vehicle is significantly reduced. That means you get to spend more time driving your car and less time and hassle washing it.
Computer Cut Film – most PPF companies use some type of computer cut film. There are various different software from different film manufacturers. All of our kits have been customized to extend into gaps and edges that our competitors often skip. Just remember, even with computer cut film kits there may still be some disassembly required.
We price all of our paint protection film installations with an easy-to-follow pricing guide so that way you know exactly what you’re getting.
Our paint protection film carries a lifetime warranty (you bring it in to our shop once a year for a checkup and small service) AND a standalone 12-year industry-leading warranty. There is

Paint protection film is a high quality, durable, clear or semi-clear poly-vinyl film that is installed over your vehicle’s paintwork to protect it from rock chips, scratches, environmental contaminants, and other worldly damage. It is by far the most effective protective measure you can take for the exterior of your vehicle.
FACTS ABOUT KAVACA PAINT PROTECTION FILM
- What is the Difference Between Vinyl and PPF? You may have read things online about “car wraps” or “vinyl wraps”. These are not PPF. “wraps” are strictly to provide your vehicle with cosmetic changes in appearance but offer very little in the way of actual long-lasting protection. A “wrap” is NOT the same as Paint Protection Film!
- How Can KAVACA PPF Self Heal? Do scratches, scrapes, and scuffs really just wipe off? The short answer is yes. How easily they are removed depends on the severity of the damage inflicted to the PPF. The majority of the time, so long as the film has not been punctured, KAVACA PPF will automatically self-heal instantly. That means you don’t need to worry about scratches or scuffs.
- How Long Does Paint Protection Film Last? Our professionally prepped and applied KAVACA PPF has an industry-leading 12-year warranty. However, like any other paint protection solution, the durability of the PPF is impacted by several variables.
- Can you install a Ceramic Coating, Wax or Sealant on a vehicle with PPF? YES! You can absolutely apply a sealant, wax, or ceramic coating on top of PPF. We recommend our Ceramic Pro Ceramic Coatings on top of every PPF install for an added layer of protection and added ease of maintenance. Contact us for more information.
