Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a transparent urethane film designed to protect your Rivian R1S and R1T exterior from damage caused by scratches, infrared radiation, oxidation, acid rain, bird droppings, etc. It is thicker than regular wrapping film and has specific properties for ultimate paint protection.
PPF is professionally stretched over the vehicle’s bodywork and acts as a barrier between your vehicle’s paint and the elements, as a good Gortex jacket protects you from harmful UV rays, wind, cold, and rain.
By choosing PPF for Rivian R1T or R1S, you save a lot of money on paint correction or respraying. You invest in your e-SUV’s pristine condition. You invest in your ultimate comfort.
Rivian PPF Maintenance and afrercare tips
Bring your Rivian to the XPEL-certified shop for regular maintenance, and we will do everything for you. But here are a few essential tips to keep your PPF in top condition:
- Hand-wash your vehicle only using mild pH-neutral XPEL-recommended cleaning products and soft squeegees. Harsh chemicals or abrasive materials can damage the film
- Avoid taking your car to the automatic car wash (it will damage the PPF)
- Don’t park your Riving under direct sunlight, as this can cause the film to bubble or peel
- Additionally, consider adding a ceramic coating to facilitate maintenance and create a glossy finish and additional protection from UV rays, dirt, and other contaminants.
