A protective varnish film is a very thin film that is applied to a surface. It can be compared to a shell, but it is transparent and is meant to protect the undercoat, with less emphasis on cosmetic quality.
Even so, most protective films today are barely visible, and very little changes the cosmetic appearance of a car. 3M & XPEL Paint Protection Film in Edmonton is made of a type of plastic that has some elasticity that allows it to be bent, stretched, and bent around corners and bends.

This means it can prevent stone chips, small objects from hitting the surface, and even surface damage from certain chemicals. Because it is relatively easy to remove, it is easier and cheaper to replace it than to spray again.
Why use a protective varnish film?
A layer of protective varnish is usually used to protect panels that are likely to suffer surface damage. Like the front of the car, which is most likely the first time the rock hit the cause of the damage. In addition, the dirt released into the air by the vehicle in front of you will most likely harden the front of the car first.
When the PPF wears out, it can be removed and replaced with a new film, while the paint underneath remains safe. Protective lacquer films can also be waxed, sealed, or ceramic coated, but these products tend to behave and present slightly differently due to the differences between varnish and plastic film.
