LLUMAR SELF-HEAL­ING PAINT PRO­TEC­TION FILM – KEEP­ING YOUR CAR LOOK­ING NEWER FOR LONGER

Driven - - Industry -

Paint Pro­tec­tion Film (PPF), for ve­hi­cle pro­tec­tion, has rock­eted in pop­u­lar­ity over the last sev­eral years and, as de­mand has grown, so has the num­ber of man­u­fac­tur­ers and in­stall­ers.

LLumar, with over 60 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the per­for­mance films in­dus­try, has one of the high­est qual­ity, most durable paint pro­tec­tion films avail­able to­day. A high-gloss, vir­tu­ally in­vis­i­ble shield, LLumar paint pro­tec­tion film shields your car from the dam­ages of ev­ery­day driv­ing.

WHAT IS PAINT PRO­TEC­TION FILM?

Main­tain­ing a scratch-free, lus­trous paint fin­ish is a hot topic – whether you’re a pro­fes­sional valet, a per­fec­tion­ist, or just love what you drive. Be­cause of this, there is a strong pos­si­bil­ity that you’ve heard about PPF. You may have had some up­close and per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences with paint pro­tec­tion film, with­out hav­ing re­alised it.

This is pos­si­ble be­cause, for many years, lux­ury ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers have been in­stalling film on their ve­hi­cles in se­lect ar­eas that en­dure the harsh­est pun­ish­ment. By treat­ing lo­ca­tions such as wheel arches, door­sills, and even fuel caps, own­ers can fend off wear and tear for many years.

This fact isn’t so sur­pris­ing, once you learn that pro­tec­tive film is mil­i­tary-grade tech­nol­ogy that has been used for years to shield heli­copter and air­plane blades against dam­age from wind­borne de­bris. Of course, LLumar PPF has come a long way from the thick, unattrac­tive pro­tec­tion film that was used in the past.

LLumar’s state-of-the-art PPF, in­stalled by pro­fes­sion­als, is pow­er­fully durable yet thin, is cus­tom-fit­ted and blends in with paint fin­ishes so well that it is al­most in­vis­i­ble. Typ­i­cal PPF com­po­nents In­clude

• a layer of re­mov­able,

pro­tec­tive polyester film

• a flex­i­ble polyurethane

away be­fore LLumar PPF is ad­hered
