Rivian Paint Protection Film FAQs

What are the pros & cons of paint protection films for Rivian, specifically?

If you own a Rivian you know how great the signature paint looks. You also know that because of production demands, sometimes the paint can be a little thinner than you want. PPF is an amazing complement to your Rivian because it keeps it looking great, while protecting that original paint.

A con of PPF is that while it’s nearly invisible, if you do a partial install you will see edge lines. This may collect dust and overtime, may look annoying. This is why going with a “full PPF” option may be a better fit. By installing the protective film on the entire panel (as opposed to just the front) it will protect while looking amazing.

Why do you need to protect your Rivian with PPF?

Rivian’s proprietary paint and “certified only” body shop model means they demand the highest quality from a select few shops for repairs. This also means that those shops have a bit of a monopoly on Rivian paint and therefore can tend to be very expensive. PPF is a fantastic option to help owners protect their original paint. It also goes hand in hand with Paintless Dent Repair in that if something were to strike your vehicle you would have the paint protected with PPF and then could have any dents fixed with PDR. Thus saving you an enormous amount of cost and time.


Will PPF increase the resale value of a Rivian?

If PPF is installed properly, there is no doubt it will increase the value of your Rivian. Rivian’s are built to last. They will set new records for longevity simply because of the lack of wear and tear on mechanical parts. So Rivian owners value protecting their investment more than other owners. PPF keeps paint looking newer, longer. It also gives an owner the ability to peel it off in the future and reveal virtually brand new paint the has been protected all this time. 

Will PPF protect Rivian’s paint if enjoyed off-road?

Rivians are made to be enjoyed. Whether it’s the rugged R1T or the sleek R1S, many Rivian owners plan to take their vehicle off-road . While PPF can’t protect from all anything that is thrown at the paint, it can protect paint from small debris and scratches. Think of PPF like a screen protector for oyur phone; it acts as a sacrificial layer. PPF cannot make your Rivan invincible, but it certainly helps normal wear. New paint needs protecting more than ever.

Do newer Rivian models need paint protection (or Window Tint)?

New Rivian’s are a perfect candidate for PPF. In fact, the longer one waits to install PPF, the more likely the original paint is to be damaged. PPF won’t fix damaged paint, it will only help protect paint from becoming more damaged. Therefore, “the sooner the better” really is true with PPF.

When can you wash your Rivian after protective film is installed?

We recommend allowing your PPF to dry for 7 days before washing. Rain water won’t hurt it at all, but soap and oil from a wash may compromise the curing process of the PPF. Some PPF even have hydrophobic qualities, therefore making your Rivian easier to wash and keep clean.
