The good news is that you can take some measures to prevent yellowing and cloudiness of car headlights. After our headlight renewal treatment, here’s our advice for maintenance: application of our protective film, SCUDO. What is the protective film – PPF?

It is a true barrier made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) resistant to scratches, stones, gravel, and anything that can scratch and damage your car’s surface! It protects against chemicals, organic and inorganic acids, pollutants, and UV rays.

Thanks to its self-healing property, the film can eliminate scratches and micro-scratches caused by the heat of the sun or by using a heat gun. Moreover, thanks to its hydrophobic property, it improves water sliding for longer-lasting cleaning and reduces the number of washes, making car maintenance easier.

Scudo films are characterized by high resistance and durability. In fact, they have a 10 years duration.

And if you were wondering, yes, you can apply them to the entire painted body of your car and some internal parts.
