You may have heard of paint protection film referred to as a “clear bra,” but don’t worry, it bears no relation to lingerie. Paint protection film is a thin layer of a clear, flexible material that is overlaid over your car’s clear coat to provide an extra barrier of protection between your paint’s finish and the everyday occurrences of owning and driving a vehicle, such as the debris and small rocks that might kick up on your vehicle.
You can protect your car from the elements if you keep it in the garage and never drive it, but what fun is that? We need our cars go to work, run errands, and visit friends and family. Can we do those things while still keeping our car looking brand new? Absolutely.
Paint protection film like the kind installed by the protective film specialist in Calgary, Tint Tech, will help prevent the issues caused by rocks and road debris, scuffs and scrapes, light hail damage, and it is particularly effective for protecting matte paint jobs.

In this article, we will cover the four top benefits of paint protection film. In order to keep anything from your hot rod to your old reliable looking like new, consider paint protection film installed by Tint Tech, the protective film specialists in Calgary.
Benefit 1 – Road Damage Protection
Whether the truck in front of you kicks up rocks and pebbles, or another car throws up bits of glass or plastic one of the biggest dangers to your car’s finish is driving into airborne items. By wrapping the front of your car with paint protection film, you can mitigate the effects of these unavoidable contacts and keep the paint on the front of your car looking newer longer.
Benefit 2 – Battling Scuffs and Scrapes
Did you know that the jewelry and accessories we wear every day pose a hazard to the clear coat and paint of your vehicle? Sounds crazy, but it is true. Wedding rings, belt buckles, and car keys sticking out of your pockets can easily, though accidentally, brush against your car.
We can’t blame those hazards all on strangers in parking lots either. True that the odd shopping car or other driver in the parking lot could do a little damage unbeknownst to you, but if you have limited room in your garage and have to squeeze past your vehicle to get to and from your door, each passing provides the opportunity for scratches to occur. Applying paint protection film to your doors and side panels minimizes accidental damage.
Benefit 3 – All Hail the Potential for Hail Damage
The roof of your car is an area you may not think about very often, except for when you remind yourself that you need to remember to grab your coffee cup or briefcase before you drive away. Here in Calgary, hail is not an infrequent occurrence. Accordingly, you may be overlooking an area for potential damage.
All of the flat planes of the car including the hood, roof, trunk, and (to a lesser degree) the front and rear windshields are all vulnerable to damage from hail falling from the sky. Installing paint protection film can ease your mind, knowing that minor damage will be prevented.
Benefit 4 – Taking Care of the Increasingly Popular Matte Paint
A matte finish on cars is a look that has been gaining popularity in the last few years. Instead of the sleek and glossy clear coat on most cars, the matte finish provides dramatic contrast to the rest of the cars on the road.
That said, the problem with a matte finish is that a scratch on the surface cannot be simply buffed out as you would a shiny clear coat. The reason? Buffing a matte finish will create a shiny spot on an otherwise non-shiny finish – essentially ruining the whole look of your car.
To avoid that outcome, those with matte finishes on their cars should really think carefully about whether paint protection film is the way to go. Paint protection film will prevent a costly paint repair to your matte finish by keeping the minor scratches from occurring in the first place.
