FAQs – DuraShield Titan XT™

For Vehicle Owners

  • What is DuraShield Titan XT™ Paint Protection Film (PPF)?

    Titan XT™ is an extremely durable, virtually invisible clear urethane film applied to your vehicle to protect the finish from stone chips, scratches, bug acids, and minor abrasions caused by every day driving in all climates. Titan XT™ is a top-coated urethane film with a pressure-sensitive adhesive that has a total thickness of 8 mil (.008 in. or .20 mm).

  • When and what areas should have Titan XT™ installed on my vehicle?

    The best time to install Titan XT™ is before you drive it off the dealership lot or immediately after purchase. On a repainted vehicle, proper curing must be complete first. Film should only be applied on professionally repainted or new vehicles. Investing in a Titan XT™ application keeps your vehicle looking new longer. Common areas for application are:

    • Front areas: Hood, bumper, fenders, mirrors, A-pillars, leading edge of the roof
    • Read areas:  Behind rear wheel (splash guard), top of rear bumper
    • Mid-section: Door edges, rocker panels, and area under door handles
    • Full Vehicle
  • Can I install Titan XT™ film myself?

    Qualified installers have been trained and have experience in this specialized application. This will help to make sure your installation is correctly done and looks great on your vehicle. Sharpline Converting, Inc. advises all consumers to have Titan XT applied by a professional qualified installer. Sharpline Converting, Inc. does not honor warranty on applications performed by a non-qualified installer.

  • What is the proper care of the Titan XT™?

    Immediately after Installation:

    • Wait 48 hours after installation to wash your vehicle. Lightly wiping the film clean with water and soap will not harm the film. The adhesive will reach its full strength after 72 hours.

    Routine Care: 

    • Titan XT™ can be cared for much like the rest of your vehicle. Removing bug splats, bird droppings, and frequent washing will keep your film looking newer longer.
    • Any stains that remain after normal washing can be removed with 91% isopropyl alcohol or products such as Clorox® Cleanup. Always test any cleaners not recommended by the manufacturer in a small, inconspicuous area first. Contact us for additional recommendations.
    • Light scratches will heal in the sun with time. The time frame depends upon the severity of the scratch and the temperature.
    • Deeper scratches can be hand polished or polished using a buffer to restore (use carefully to not burn through the film).
    • Wax may be applied to the film. Use nonabrasive waxes. Remove any residue along edge of the film with isopropyl alcohol and cotton swab.
    • Do not use high pressure nozzles next to any film edges.
  • Can Titan XT™ be removed?

    Yes. Titan XT™ can be removed years after application. We recommend using a qualified installer for removal. When no installer is available, the material can be removed carefully with a clothing steamer, heat gun, or hair dryer. A clothing steaming will provide the best results for removing film. Soften and warm the film, this will soften the adhesive under the film. Slowly pull back the edge at a 180° angle to the applied surface. Use isopropyl alcohol or an approved adhesive remover to clean any remaining adhesive on the vehicle surface.

  • Can a clearcoat be applied over Titan XT™?

    We do not recommend an automotive clearcoat be used on top of Titan XT™. This is at your own risk.

  • Does Titan XT™ turn yellow?

    Titan XT™ blocks airborne and surface contaminants so they will not penetrate the film to cause discoloration. Additionally, UV inhibitors are in the film to resist harmful sun damage.

  • What is the warranty for Titan XT™?

    Titan XT™ has a 10-year warranty with coverage for defects, yellowing, bubbling, adhesive delamination, and cracking. Please visit Titan XT™ Warranty for complete detail information.

  • How much does it cost to have Titan XT™ installed on my vehicle?

    The cost of installation varies depending on what areas are protected and the market in your area. Use the Find an Installer request for a qualified installer near you.

  • What other types of products can Titan XT™ be applied to?

    Titan XT™ is excellent for electronics, kick plates, motorcycles, bicycles, recreational vehicles (RVs), personal watercraft, and much more. Test to make sure it will properly adhere to the surface area. PPFs are not suitable for windshield applications.
