Understanding Orange Peel Refraction: How Is Clarity Affected?

Orange-peel refraction leaves a mottled or a white sheen on the film caused by imperfections. The mottled appearance causes reduced paint depth, inaccurate colour rendition and much reduced gloss. Our top-of-the-line ClearGuard™ Nano SR offers the finest clarity of any film on the market with virtually no ‘orange-peel’ refraction closely followed by Defender 150-M.

Orange peel diffraction is caused by optical imperfections based on a materials consistency and/or manufacture. Typically inferior protection films exhibit high levels of ‘orange peel’ causing the paintwork to appear mottled, dull, textured or even having a dull white sheen. Orange peel is a drastic degradation of the clarity of the film which destroys the colour rendition and the natural shine of the original paintwork. AutoDetailer Studio only employs the best films that offer the highest possible clarity.

Custom Tailored Films vs. Pre-Cut Templates: Choosing The Perfect Fit!

Crafting a seamless finish is the hallmark of our custom tailored films. Requiring many labour intensive hours to individually measure and cut our films to fit your car perfectly! A perfect fit is not just about aesthetics, but the total coverage of each panel ensures maximum protection for your vehicle and your peace of mind. Pre-cut templates offer a ‘quick fix’ but we do not use them as they aren’t able to provide the total coverage that can be achieved with a tailored film.

AutoDetailer Studio custom cuts and fits all our films to each vehicle to ensure a PEFECT FIT with NO PANEL GAPS. Template based films used by competitors are pre-cut and often leave unsightly edges that expose panels to weather and debris. These exposed edges later tend to bubble and gather dirt before finally failing and peeling-off.

Custom cut protection films also ensures that our films will be able to cover production variations in automobiles that a template will be unable to accommodate. Our commitment to a PERFECT FIT is based on a highly labour intensive work process that ensures lasting protection that will last many years.

How long can Paintwork Protection Film last?

How do I maintain my car’s exterior after installing Paintwork Protection Film?

- We recommend just a weekly wash. Your Paintwork Protection Film also features an additional SiO2 hydrophobic coating (glass coating) for additional protection which can be renewed every 12 months.

Do I need to wax or polish my car after installing Paint Protection Film?

- Paintwork Protection Film does not require any polishing or waxing of any kind after installation. It will retain its shine just with weekly washes.

Are there any visible seams after the film is applied?

- None at all. All our Paintwork Protection Films are custom measured and cut to each car and we do not use any pre-cut templates. The finish is totally seamless!

How does a Paint Protection Film differ from a coating?

- Silicon Dioxide(SiO2) coatings are a semi-permanent, cost-effective protection option against dust, debris and oxidisation that will require an annual renewal. Paint Protection Films are a robust almost permanent form of protection against, dust, debris, oxidisation and stone chips that will last anywhere from 5 to 10 years! Films are usually between 200% to 400% thicker than the original clear coat. Both coatings and Protection Film only require a weekly wash. Both don’t require any waxing or polishing but retain a very vibrant shine and clarity!

If I choose to use a Paint Protection Film, can I also get it coated?
- Absolutely! Our rugged and durable Paint Protection Films can be coated with our unique Signature Hydrophobic Coating(formulated specifically for paint protection films) for an additional layer of protection while leaving your vehicle with a level of shine that is breathtaking!
