Why should we remove a clear bra?

We can remove the clear bra if it is no longer effective or shows signs of deterioration. In general, a peeling film is a solid indication that you should change your PPF. Here are some common signs of deterioration:


PPF is notorious for yellowing in its last stages. This yellowing happens after prolonged exposure to sunshine and weather factors. It is usually more evident in automobiles that are brightly colored or white. The discoloration makes your car appear less appealing.


These areas are subjected to the most intense direct solar exposure and UV radiation. The exposure deteriorates the film and causes it to fracture. If you do not remove the film promptly, this wear might potentially harm your paint.

Road Damage

If you reside on a long gravel road or drive your car for a long distance, the film may suffer some cosmetic damage. 

What is the procedure for removing PPF aka clear bra?

  • Avoid just pulling the film off like a page from a book. Instead, locate where the automobile and protective film are the most separated. From there, you may begin the peeling process. Park your car outdoors to warm up the surface and simplify film removal.
  • Do not use the heat gun or blow dryer if the film readily peels off. However, if the film comes off in pieces, you may need a heat gun or a blow dryer to remove it faster.
  • Utilize a heat gun or a blow dryer on the peeled-off area for a minute or two. Keep the gun or dryer 8 to 12 inches away from it to avoid burning the film. It is also critical to use extreme caution when utilizing such heating instruments.
  • Once the film has been removed, use a small quantity of professional adhesive remover to remove the sticky residue. Rub and wipe the affected areas, reapplying the solution as necessary.
  • After removing any remaining glue, dry the area with a microfiber towel.
