Must Know ClearBra Information!

This Info Will Help You as a consumer research and understand the PPF (Paint Protection Film) industry so as to make an educated direct comparison when shopping for your vehicle's protection. Whether you choose our company or not, you will be able to make an educated decision after reading the following based on your own facts which is far superior to shopping on price alone. Below are several important aspects of a clear bra's look and performance that one must consider. Installation, Patterns, Film, and Warranty. Each vary greatly from manufacturer to installer. It is not any one of these aspects, like many installers tout, rather the totality of the whole that will ensure your satisfaction. Vancouver ClearBra brings value and service to our clients that is unmatched by others and you will see why.

All clear bra installers are not created equal! The best film and patterns in the world mean nothing without an excellent installer. The application of PPF is not beyond most, but experience and a complete understanding of the film and patterns proves invaluable for a professional install. We are trained through 3M Canada and certified with Xpel for clear bra paint protection film Installations.
Although clearbra training and certification sounds good, as in most professions, it takes a back seat to on the job experience. We have been professionally installing clearbra since 2004 and have installed thousands of clearbra kits. Many dealers refer us their more difficult installs and we have customers driving hundreds of miles to see us at times. Unfortunately, we still end up redoing kits that some other so-called "professional" has botched up. Not to mention the damage such as razor blade marks, film damage and paint scratches that many inexperienced installers leave behind. New installers are likely to charge very low or break even fees so they can get experience, you must ask yourself do you really want to volunteer your vehicle to help them with their learning curve.

All clearbra patterns are not created the same! Several companies create their own digitized computer cut clearbra patterns for each vehicle. Their design abilities and focus vary dramatically.

  • Free clearbra Patterns: There are companies providing free clearbra patterns to installers as a sales tool for increasing the film sales for the clearbra they manufacture. You can see their priorities are in film sales vs. quality pattern design as most of the kits are or vey poor design and fitment. These patterns are designed as quickly as possible as they need to focus their energy on selling film. Some installers go this route to offer a cheaper price. As the old saying here goes, "You get what you pay for" and in this case free clearbra patterns are worth every penny.
  • D.I.Y. clearbra Patterns: There are many clearbra patterns found on the Internet are meant for the do-it-yourselfer. This is very unjust to the consumer for two reasons; 1. The patterns usually offer less coverage and come with several relief cuts. These help to aid in the ease of installation but do nothing for the appearance and protection of the vehicle. 2. Using the least amount of film is the only options for these clearbra patterns. This means separating a one-piece kit into several spliced pieces so that it can be situated on the film to use less product. This keeps Internet prices as well as some installer's costs much lower. It may sound good until you consider that they are sacrificing quality and looks!

  • Bulk Film Installers: Some installers use bulk film to keep clearbra costs down (no download or pattern fees). They stretch and install the full sheet onto the area to be covered and then hand cut the pattern right on the paint. This means a razor blade thousands of an inch from your paint (hopefully). With an excellent installer, this is a valid option and allows extra flexibility for vehicles that don't have the desired size patterns available. The problem is that 9 out of 10 installers our not worthy of the "excellent installer" title and you can imagine the damage that can be done with a razor blade.
  • Our Patterns: We manufacture our kits via a DAP software program and computerized plotter. This means we have the best patterns available real time, at the push of a button. We pay a premium for each kit downloaded but the price is well worth it. The fit and coverage is second to none and after searching all other options we are proud to be allied with a company that designs its patterns with the overall appearance and protection in mind. Saving money on download fees, having more pieces to ease installation and less coverage to save on material costs are not viewed as a benefit by us. Providing the best available protection to our clients is. All kits are designed as one piece when ever possible. Looks, Fitment, and Coverage are top priority. We are also able to offer options such as full hoods, bikini cuts, and wrapped edges.
*side note: installers that plot their own kits via computer are much more likely to fix a piece that isn't perfect (e.g. piece of dirt under film) while an installer that orders the kits will more likely take the "see if they complain" route.

All films are not created equal! We are up-front and honest about the fact that there is no "perfect film". This is why we offer 3M and Xpel films and we will help you make an educated decision for your particular situation based on vehicle.
