Before market launch, all Rivashield products are rigorously tested, during which we test them to the limit of their durability.

The products are made in China, which is the largest producer and recipient of PPF films. A huge number of Chinese customers use protective film on their premium cars.

Enormous experience of Chinese producers comes from millions of applications per year. Constant investments in the most modern machines allow the production of films with previously unprecedented parameters.

Internal tests proven that Rivashield film is much more resistant to discoloration, yellowing and damage than competitors’ films.

We have a portfolio of products that will satisfy the most demanding customers and provide the highest level of protection available on the market.

We provide support at every stage of the film’s life, and we do not leave our partners and customers alone.

As a producer of premium PPF, we believe that the sale process does not end when the car leaves after the installation. Our support department is always available to help and our experienced team makes sure that the customer satisfaction goal is met and they answer any questions that may arise.

Ceramic coating is a product intended mainly for surface hardening, additionally making it slippery, hydrophobic and antistatic. Coatings are products that help to keep the car clean, but they do not protect against mechanical damage. The thickness of the paint coating on a new car is usually around 100 microns and the thickness of the ceramic coating is only 2 microns.

Rivashield protective films are 210 to 240 microns thick, providing a protective layer thicker than paint.

Ceramic coatings require regular maintenance to maintain their optimal spicifics.

For comparison, colorless films guarantee even lifetime protection of the paintwork against sharp objects, scratches and stone impacts or the effect of sandblasting the paint while driving on highways.

Protecting the car with Rivashield allows you to keep the car in perfect condition without burdensome maintenance.

A car protected with PPF retains its value better and the foil itself is an asset when selling the vehicle.

The most common choice are films from the basic BETA series with a thickness of 210 microns, which provide a very high level of protection compared to other products available on the market.

However if you want to achieve the maximum protection of paintwork and ensure the best aesthetic qualities of the vehicle, we recommend a foil from the ALPHA series with a thickness of 240 microns, which, in addition to the highest level of protection, gives the paint an unprecedented depth and transparency.

Our products are covered by a long-term warranty, which in case of the BETA series is 15 years and in case of the ALPHA film – lifetime.

  1.   Rinse the car thoroughly with a power washer, starting with the dirtiest parts – wheel arches, rims, body.

  2.   Apply the foam on the car using a foam gun and a dedicated detergent with a neutral pH, then rinse thoroughly with a power washer.

  3.   Wash the rims with brushes and specially designed chemicals.

  4.   To clean the car body, use a delicate glove and two buckets (one bucket with warm water and shampoo, the other only with water for rinsing the glove).

  5.   Rinse the entire car again and dry with dedicated microfiber towels.

  6.   When using a power washer, keep the distance between the nozzle / lance and the element protected / covered with foil at least 60 cm (high water pressure at the very mouth of the lance may cause the foil to cut or peel off).

  7.   Do not point the nozzle at the edges of the foil, as this may cause water to seep under the foil and undermine it.

  8. Before using strong cleaning products, check in an invisible place if they do not damage the foil.

  • Any possible contamination (i.e. dirt caused by insects, bird droppings, etc.) must be removed immediately. Dirt left on the foil for a long time may cause discoloration.

  •   Automatic car washes should not be used.

  •   Do not wash the car in the sun.

  • The vehicle can be safely washed with chemicals that have a neutral pH.

Washing a wrapped car is no different from washing a regular car.

We absolutely do not recommend washing any car in automatic washers. There is a strong risk of the paint or foil damage.

Brushes used in automatic car washes are often dirty, which may dull the paint or foil and lead to damage. 

Self-service car washes are definitely a safer choice, but you should remember to keep the appropriate distance from the washed element.

The chemicals used in self-service car washes often have an unfavorable pH for the car. For more information on the chemicals used, it is best to consult with a car wash employee to make sure that the products used there have a neutral pH.
