Xpel

Written by:

Xpel is an American based company that manufacturers and distributes transparent wraps to protect your vehicle with. The company has several approved installers and distributors around the world.

Xpel products

Xpel creates protective films that can be applied on top of paintwork to protect it from external forces. The cut-to-size sheets are applied to a wet surface, positioned and then glued to the surface by pressing out the water with a squeegee. This technique is very similar to applying a wrap. Besides protective films to wrap parts of the car in, they also offer these films for door sills, door edges, mirrors, rocker panels and window films.
For the aftercare of the protective film, they also offer rinse-free shampoo, bucket kits, washmitts and microfiber towels.

Company information

Xpel has several offices around the world, making it possible to find an approved installer close to you. They have a main office in America and in England. Some products can be bought straight from their webshop, other products can only be applied/supplied by an approved installer. The company has their own company website. They are not very active on social media and are only very rarely seen at detailing events and/of car meetings. They are not often seen at detailing fora, unless represented by a reseller or distributor.
