How to Remove PPF From Car Paint

March 1, 2024

PPF deteriorates over time, even with good maintenance and washing. This deterioration often leads to yellowing, cracking, and tearing of the film. This can make it harder to keep your car looking brand new and can also affect its resale value.

Thankfully, it is easy to remove ppf from your car by heating it up and peeling it away. The process requires patience and proper tools. It is best to have a heat gun with a wide nozzle, so you can heat the PPF evenly. It is important to move the heat gun regularly so that you don’t overheat one area of the paint and damage it.

If you don’t have a heat gun, you can use a hair dryer or steamer instead. You should also be careful not to apply too much pressure when pulling off the film. The last thing you want is to damage the paint of your car.

After you’ve removed the PPF, you can use a specialized adhesive remover to get rid of any remaining residue on the paint. Be sure to test the product on a small inconspicuous area before using it on the entire car.

Once you’ve removed the last bits of adhesive residue, give your car a wash and chamois dry. You should also apply a sealant to your car to protect it from environmental contaminants, which can stick to the surface and degrade the paint protection film. You can choose a sealant that is specifically designed for cars or use a citrus-based solvent.
