Waxing was once the only protection available for vehicle paint, and it’s still a great idea because it adds sheen and protects the finish from the elements, including harsh chemicals in the atmosphere. But car wax won’t stop a pebble.
The multi-layered urethane “clear bras” we install at APR will protect your vehicle paint, prolonging the life of the paint and preserving resale value. The technology behind our rock chip protection films is nothing short of amazing.
These high-tech, adhesive wrap materials can be applied to any part of your car that takes abuse from wind, weather, winter sand and salt, insects, debris, and even minor parking lot dings. Unlike waxing, this heavy duty shield lasts for years, and is almost undetectable. The biggest benefit of protective films is the peace of mind that comes from knowing your ride will be looking great for a long time to come.

Six Good Reasons to Use Clear Paint Protection
1. Military-grade protection is yours.
Protective polyurethane films were developed by the U.S. military in the 1960s to prevent wear on helicopter blades. Their use was later expanded to protect military vehicles deployed in the desert, and it was adopted by professional race car drivers in 1980s. Now that it’s available for commercial use, everyone can enjoy the benefits of this incredibly tough material as a clear bra film for civilian vehicles.
2. Paint protection wraps keep paint looking new.
Vehicle paint gets chips and scratches in the course of normal driving, but our high-tech protective films repel flying debris and other damaging elements before they touch the paint finish.
3. A warranty doesn’t hurt.
You can buy DIY (do-it-yourself) car bra kits, but professionally applied films look better and stick better, so we’re able to offer up to 5-year warranties on products and workmanship, depending on the exact film you choose.
4. Clear paint protection helps maintain vehicle resale value.
Our high quality films can be removed to restore your vehicle to its factory appearance, increasing its resale value over time. Think of it as an insurance policy for your paint.
5. It’s virtually invisible.
Every protective film product we apply is made from optically transparent materials that let the luster of your paint show through. Your protective wrap will be custom cut and applied by skilled technicians to blend almost seamlessly with the body style of your car or truck.
6. Professional installation means a perfect fit.
APR technicians are trained to choose the right, custom-cut film kits for your car or truck, or in the case of rare and vintage vehicles, to cut the film in patterns that mold perfectly to your body style. They use a combination of chemistry and heat to adhere the film, so looks great—and keeps looking great—for years to come.
