What Is X-Pel™?
Our kits are a clear polyurethane based film made by 3M and cut to designs devised by X-Pel™ Technologies of San Antonio, Texas.
Is it car wash friendly?
Yes X-Pel™ Paint protection is car wash friendly. It can be run through a regular car wash or jet washed with ease. However, we strongly advise that when washing the film the jet should be kept about 2 feet from the edges of the film as the sheer pressure may cause lifting if one gets too close..
Will it damage my car?
No, X-Pel™ will not damage your car in any way. It is specially constructed to ensure no differential fading will take place and will not harm OEM paint finishes. It can also be applied to Smart repairs and re-sprays however special precautions need to be taken. Your distributor will advise you on these.
Is it guaranteed?
X-Pel™ has a seven year manufacturers warranty. See warranty documentation for terms.
How do I know it will work?
Significant test data has been published demonstrating the resilience of this product utilizing gravelometer tests (throwing stones at high speed at a metal plate). These tests illustrate how your car will be protected from stone chips and other road debris.
What does it do?
X-Pel™ provides a non-permeable, resilient coating to the protected areas, restoring the resilience that used to exist in the older type of car paints and then further enhances this to provide high levels of protection both against stone chips and surface abrasions.
Where did it come from?
The film was originally developed to meet a military requirement for the protection of helicopter rotor blades against the erosive effects of sand in desert conditions. You could say the product is "combat proven technology"
