Paint Protection Film, often referred to as clear bra or PPF, is a transparent, thermoplastic urethane film that is applied to the exterior of a vehicle. It acts as an invisible shield, protecting your Rivian's paint from a variety of potential hazards, including stone chips, road debris, scratches & scuffs, and even UV rays. The key to its effectiveness lies in its self-healing properties, which means minor scratches or scuffs will vanish “aka heal” naturally in the presence of sunlight.
Once we install PPF on your Rivian, it looks just the same – you can’t see it! PPF is fully transparent, super glossy and smooth, meaning it looks invisible and you see the paint underneath. By design, PPF is also hydrophobic and xpels water naturally.
EV Sportline has been installing PPF for decades, well before Rivian came to be. Since Rivian launched, we’ve gained more experience than anyone on Rivian PPF, rest assured, we do it best.
EV Sportline Mutli-Step Paint Protection Film Installation Service:
1 – Preparation (required option)
The vehicle is professionally washed and de-waxed. We then ‘clay bar’ all painted surfaces to prepare the paint for PPF adhesion. Next, we paint correct any areas requiring removal of water spots, swirl marks, scuffs, and minor scratches.
2 – Cutting and Application
We use proprietary house-made templates to cut our PPF, with each piece carefully designed to fit the Rivian panel and wrap around each edge to ensure the invisible look. It’s a bit tedious, but we prefer perfection. Each PPF section is applied, aligned, and locked into place with all edges inspected and corrected as needed.
3 – Inspection and Adjustments
After installation, vehicles rest on site for a day allowing our technicians a chance to complete any final adjustments that may arise after the installed PPF has settled overnight and all edges have dried.
