Why Should I Consider PPF for My Ride?

  • Self-Healing Vehicle Exterior Surface Protection

    Of all the reasons that vehicle owners bring their cars, trucks, and SUV's to our paint protection film installation team here at Sunbusters, the most common one is peace of mind. With a self-healing PPF, you can drive freely without flinching every single time you hear a rock ricochets off your front end or worrying that your finish will be scratched by simply washing and drying the vehicle. Our PPF has the ability to self-heal after minor abrasions or impacts, leaving your paint's finish pristine over the years of ownership. This feature is especially noticeable on dark colors that tend to show swirls and micro-abrasions worse than lighter colors.
  • Hydrophobic Protection Against Stains and Grime

    Our PPF has a special hydrophobic chemical top coat that performs very similar to a ceramic coating. This coating boosts stain resistance and also lowers the surface energy to a point where bugs and road grime have a difficult time sticking to the PPF surfaces. As a result, cleaning and maintenance are a breeze on protected areas.
  • All-Around Ease of Maintenance

    Your vehicle’s surfaces that can be covered by PPF are sure to boast some of the most low-maintenance characteristics imaginable. This is not only by way of less frequent exterior cleaning, but also via its resistance to abrasions that would ultimately need to be buffed and polished from your finish.
  • Protecting and Enhancing Resale Value

    With all of the features and benefits of PPF, over the years of ownership your vehicle will remain pristine in the protected areas. The initial investment in PPF will enhance trade or resale value when you're ready to purchase your next vehicle.
    • Nearly invisible protection from damage caused by rocks, salt, insects and other road debris
    • A proprietary, self-healing clear coat that is scratch- and crack-resistant with a high-gloss finish
    • Transforms the appearance of traditional paint to a matte finish when using PPF Matte
    • Outstanding optical clarity

  • Product Construction

    One of the most common Paint Protection Films (PPF) used in Austin is an 8 mil polyurethane film with an adhesive layer on the underside and a chemical top coat on the top. The chemical top coat provides superior stain, abrasion and chip resistance. The top coated material has self-healing properties that enable the product to repair itself when small scratches occur. SunTek PPF uses a proprietary top coat that is unmatched in the industry, providing protection from minor scratches and a high gloss finish.

  • Installation

    The installation process can take some time. Plan on leaving the vehicle with us, especially for projects that consist of large areas being filmed like full hood and full bumper applications. We like to let the vehicle cure for a while and then retouch and inspect the installation prior to final delivery. Our installation process ensures the best possible protection and appearance. The process simply cannot be rushed.

  • Maintenance

    Periodic cleaning and maintenance of PPF is required. Car wash soap and water can be used along with a good quality snythetic wax or spray sealer. Clean with a soft sponge and dry with a quality microfiber cloth. Avoid cleaning the film while dry, always lubricate the surface with car wash soap. Avoid harsh chemicals like degreaser and carb cleaner. Also avoid natural paste waxes like carnuba waxes because they can permanently discolor the material and cause wax build-up along leading edges.

    The owner was extremely helpful and his long experience in the business was evident. The work turned out perfectly and the price was comparable to other places, but the discussion, questions and answers and friendly helpful service made the experience a pleasure, not a high pressure sales pitch as I was anticipating. Now I have the beautiful upgrade to the car and feel great about the choice of where to take my business.

    There's a reason many high end dealers take their cars here for tinting. These guys are top notch. Expect a little over $1k for top of the line tinting, windows, and a sunroof. We're in Texas - it's worth it

    Its a nice place to get tints. People here are nice and will fix any problems on your tint that you purchase. Would recommend this shop. Just think of it as an investment for your investment. Makes the car's interior much cooler when exposed to sun.

    Very friendly staff. Great product knowledge and recommendations. Really fast wi-fi. The fit and finish of my ppf and tints are surgical. I very highly recommend Sunbusters for an experience that's amazing and quality of work that's top notch. They're also cheaper than any other place I've priced. Go see them.

    Great customer service, very kind and friendly staff. Dave made sure I knew all my options for window tint before making an appointment. Tint team knocked out a four door sedan in just over a hour, I was in and out. Clinton was great and got me checked in. After the job was completed, Paul made sure to check and verify the quality, which was fantastic. Paul even explained about the edge gaps I thought were going to be an issue and insured me that once the film dries it will no longer be an issue, which was true. The film I purchased has an outstanding warranty!

    I recently visited Sunbusters and had several things done, along with window tinting, and the service was fantastic. First, they gave me an honest quote for the work I wanted done and did a great job on all of it. Once installed they patiently explained the technology, and answered all of my questions. When we realized one task hadn't been completed they were quick to address it. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    These guys did an amazing job on my old Volvo wagon! The choices were presented clearly and the price was agreeable for a ceramic tint job IMO. There was even a problem with one of the rear windows and they were able to work around it and get the job done. Now my car stays cool in the sun and the weak A/C is able to keep up. 10/10 recommend

    August 9, 2022

    People are friendly. I just made a call to see if I can walk in for my car tint. It was quick and they did a great job. If you guys want to get your window tint done I definitely recommend this place. Price are fare enough.

    Have been coming here for 10+ years and had always held the owner in high regard, but today we took two cars and were met with disappointing customer service. Workmanship - 5 stars Customer service - 1 star Made appt for 9am. Got there on time, first car done beautifully. See some guys from the Covert dealership come drop two cars unannounced and think nothing of it because worker tells them they’re in the back of the line since they’re booked solid. Left second car at 10am and ran errands with little children near the area. Came back 3 hours later - second car hasn’t been taken back. Covert guy comes to pick up his vehicle that was not scheduled to be done. When we bring it up to the owner, he makes excuses about his guys needing to have lunch. At 10am? Then he mentions a discount - that they offered a week before for bringing in two cars at the same time. Don’t bold face lie to us, we both know what happened. Just take accountability for your actions. All we needed was, “I’m sorry, we messed up.” or “I’m sorry, we let big pocket customers cut the line as part of our business model.” That’s it. Not taking accountability for something so small makes me wonder what would happen if something big were to go wrong. I’m so sad to see this once fantastic business lose its luster through the years. We loved this place. We loved the owner. Guess it’s back to the drawing board to find the next new fantastic place. :(

    It's nice in this day and age to find a business with a long history in the same location that still has the highest standards for their work. I was impressed with the entire team. The guys doing the actual tint work were clearly VERY experienced because they were so efficient with what they did. Just watching them prep the windows you could tell these guys know what they are doing. David at the front desk was very accommodating when I needed to move up my appointment for my sons football game. Very nice guy and extremely knowledgeable of the industry and their products. They also do other work like Car Audio and Radar Detectors. They even do a clear film for the front window that I'm considering on both my vehicles to cut the heat from that angle. I highly suggest their top of the line ceramic window film (Formula One Stratos). The difference of the hot sun on my arm was staggering when I got into the truck sitting outside. Plus, I don't have to turn my a/c to high just to feel the cold air in this hot Texas weather. Highly suggested and well worth the investment on my vehicle. They do have different options for different budgets, but even the best was a great value as far as I'm concerned. I'll be back with my vehicles in the future as well. Thanks to the entire team. Well Done!
