Advantages of XPEL Ultimate

  • it will not dim the light of the headlights;
  • ensures 100% protection against weather conditions or in case of superficial scratches caused by other mechanical actions;
  • provides protection against rust – when you apply the protective film, the environment between it and the car body is dry and free from moisture, which will prevent the appearance of rust spots; however, if your car already has rust spots, it is best to remove them before applying the protective film;
  • resistance to chemical substances;
  • it will not change the color of the car.
