XPEL FILM TYPES

Our high-quality films come in various types to match your protection needs and aesthetic preferences. Each film type offers unique benefits, from increased thickness to hydrophobic top coats.

XPEL ULTIMATE FUSION PPF

ULTIMATE FUSION PPF is a high-quality paint protection film created by the experts at XPEL. This film combines their revolutionary self healing properties with a hydrophobic top-coat resulting in a high gloss super slick finish. Combined, these technically engineered qualities help repel water and dirt making it easier to maintain the films like new appearance. Additionally, it protects vehicles from rock chips, scuffs, and light scratches.

XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS 10

ULTIMATE PLUS 10 is ultra-thick and considered the highest performing paint protection film available. Measuring approximately 25% thicker than standard film, it is specifically designed to protect the highest impact areas on your vehicle. The carefully engineered clear coat also allows scratches in the surface to “heal” over time, eliminating the need for frequent polishing.

STEALTH PPF

STEALTH PPF is a paint protection film specifically formulated for preserving a flat, factory finish. Whether your vehicle is matte, magno, frozen or frosted, self-healing STEALTH ™ will keep it looking effortlessly pristine. Or, transform your gloss paint with a whole new look!

ULTIMATE PLUS 8

ULTIMATE PLUS 8 is XPEL’s flagship paint protection film and the first ever self-healing PPF. Ultimate Plus 8 was originally released in 2011 and has received several improvements since. This highly popular 8 mil thick film will provide you with time-tested protection against rock chips, scratches, and road debris.

DESIGN ACCESS PROGRAM (DAP)

THE MOST PRECISE PAINT PROTECTION PATTERNS
The best fitting PPF patterns designed in-house by the expert engineers at XPEL. DAP gives us access to the largest database of vehicle specific patterns providing an exact fit for your vehicle. Utilizing the DAP software gives us the ability to modify any pattern to provide increased coverage, wrapped edges, and reduce seams. Additionally, we are able to significantly reduce hand cutting on your vehicle allowing for a safer installation. These patterns are intentionally designed to manage the amount of stretch applied on the film, thus maintaining the original film thickness to maximize the performance of the film.
