SET AUTO CARE x STEK

Your vehicle is protected using STEK’s DYNOshield PAINT PROTECTION FILM (PPF). A crystal clear PPF, DYNOshield uses STEK’s unique HYDROphobe® top coating to deliver an extremely high gloss, extra durable finish. DYNOshield’s brilliant shine will certainly help maintain that “just waxed” look for your car without you having to apply any wax!

HYDROphobe improves contaminant resistance from watermarks, insects, bird droppings, road oils, exhaust smoke, and pollutants that can create stains, yellowing, and gloss out on the film’s surface. With its excellent “shock-proofing” properties HYDROphobe protects vehicle paint against chipping, scratching, car wash brush marks, etc. which helps DYNOshield provide the highest level of protection available from a paint protection film.

PAINT PROTECTION BENEFITS & FAQS

Do you really need paint protection? What’s the warranty? What can PPF really do for your vehicle? Check out the frequently asked questions below, if they remain unanswered, feel free to contact us

Will this clear bra yellow or crack under any environmental conditions?

Not at all. The qualities that make this a perfect medium for paint protection lies in the technology developed by STEK Automotive.

This film is a polycaprolactone-based, aliphatic TPU (thermal polyurethane) film. It is a low gel, nonyellowing, UV-resistant film used in a wide range of outdoor exposed vehicle protection applications.

Do you provide a warranty?

STEK DYNOshield paint protection film (PPF) is warrantied for 10 Years against delamination, yellowing, bubbling, and cracking. If you ever have any issues with the PPF, please contact us and we’ll get your warranty started.

How does the self-healing work?

Paint Protection Film contains a proprietary topcoat. This topcoat protects the urethane against surface scratches. The majority of surface scratches will self-heal when exposed to heat – sun, warm panel (motor running), warm water, etc. We demonstrate this with a copper wire brush to simulate surface scratches that will self-heal such as surface dirt, sand, salt, etc.

Will paint with and without Paint Protection Film fade differently?

No. The area protected with Paint Protection Film will fade at the same rate as the unprotected area.

Polarized sunglasses make Paint Protection Film look iridescent. Is this normal?

This is purely an interaction between the light reflected from the car surface through the film and polarized glasses. Light reflected from the surface is polarized in different directions and each polarization propagates through the film differently. This is an inherent feature of the film as it gets oriented to some degree during the installation. A good analogy would be looking at a screen of an ATM machine in polarized glasses – you can see a normal screen when you look straight at it and then you tilt your head and see a black screen.

Can Paint Protection Film be applied over repaired/fresh paint?

Paint Protection Film is designed and warrantied when applied to original paint. Issues with aftermarket/repaired paint are not warranted by STEK. If you choose to still have STEK Paint Protection Film installed over fresh paint, the common waiting period is 30 days for the paint to outgas.

Should I wax my car prior to Paint Protection Film installation?

It is not recommended to apply wax or any coatings to your vehicle prior to having STEK Paint Protection Film installed. Any waxes or coatings can interfere with the proper adhesion of the film to the vehicle.

How soon after installation can I drive my vehicle?

In an ideal situation, an installer will have the vehicle 24 hours to monitor the film for any lifting edges before releasing the vehicle to the owner. In situations where this is not possible, we strongly recommend at least a 2-3 hour waiting period indoors followed by an inspection to ensure all edges are sealed before the vehicle is released.

How do I remove Paint Protection Film?

The film should be lifted at a 45-degree angle and pull towards yourself, this will cause the adhesive to release. Do not fold the film over on itself and rip it off, this can leave adhesive behind. In cold weather environments, we recommend a steamer to aid in softening the film/adhesive for removal.

Is the installation process for Altered Black Paint Protection Film any different than PPF C or Matte?

No, the installation process for Altered Black PPF is the same as PPF C and Matte. Removal directions are the same as well.

Can I wax Paint Protection Film Matte?

Some waxes will add a level of gloss to PPFMatte. However, there are waxes on the market specifically for matte finishes. Waxing is still recommended for added protection.

Can I take my car through a pressure wash with Paint Protection Film?

It is best practice to wait 3 days before washing your car. While hand washing is preferred, you can use a pressure wash, but be careful near edges as the pressure water can lift the edge.

Can I wax Paint Protection Film Matte?

Some waxes will add a level of gloss to PPFMatte. However, there are waxes on the market specifically for matte finishes. Waxing is still recommended for added protection.

Can “coatings” be applied to Paint Protection Film?

Ceramic coatings are approved for use with our Paint Protection Films when applied over the surface of the product. Ceramic coatings create an additional barrier for solvent and water penetration while not negatively impacting the performance or self-healing of our Paint Protection Film. This application will not void your warranty.

If there is a stain that won’t wash off, what do I do?

If a stain will not wash off with a regular car wash, you can apply isopropyl alcohol to a microfiber towel and clean the stain, if that does not work you can use a small amount of lacquer thinner. If the stain remains we would recommend you use a mild-abrasive wax and polish the surface of the film to restore the original appearance. Polishing/buffing of the film is a great way to remove contaminants from the surface, however, this process should be limited to as-needed or once every 12- 18 months. An example of a mild-abrasive wax would be Turtle Wax Renew RX Polishing Compound Light to Medium Cleaner.
