Paint Protection Film is a transparent, urethane material that can be applied to any exterior painted surface on your vehicle. In short, automotive Paint Protection Film preserves the quality of your car’s paint by reducing the risk of multiple kinds of damage, such as…
- Chips and scratches caused by rocks and road debris
- Swirl marks created during washing
- Chemical stains caused by acidic contaminants
- Chemical etch marks caused by acidic contaminants
- Hard water spots from mineral deposits
- Oxidation (fading) from UV exposure
Paint Protection Film is applied first to the portions of your vehicle that will be most susceptible to rock chips or scratches from road debris. Since Ceramic Coating does not protect against this kind of damage, it’s important to apply Paint Protection Film to these areas. This often includes the front bumper, hood, fenders, side mirrors, rocker panels, and the rear wheel arch.
Once the most vulnerable areas are protected with Paint Protection Film, your whole car receives Ceramic Coating. The coating will bond to both the vehicle’s factory paint and the film that has already been applied. When applied on top of the film, the coating will provide an additional layer of protection from chemical etching and stains. It will also help keep the film clean and free from contaminants, which will lengthen the life of the film.
Paint protection film (PPF, also called a clear bra, clear film, or clear paint film) is a thermoplastic urethane often self-healing film applied to painted surfaces of a new or used car in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions. This film is also used on airplanes, RVs, cell phones, electronics, screens, motorcycles, and many other areas. The paint protection film is OEM approved by virtually all car manufacturers.
The paint protection film is installed on a limited basis by manufacturers on various pieces of cars at the factory (e.g. the rear arches of Tesla Model Y). This film is most commonly applied to high-impact areas of vehicles which include: the hood, the front fenders, the front bumper, the side-view mirrors, the rocker panels, the lower portion of the doors, and the rear guards behind the rear wheels. This is because these specific panels are the most susceptible to damage from rock chips and other forms of road debris from other vehicles, driving near construction, and even though self-inflicted damage—which is caused by simply driving due to the fact that debris is inevitably is kicked up from the tires rotating. The film is generally installed by certified trained professionals who receive supplies from outside distributors and dealers.
