What is paint protection film (PPF)?

Originally developed by the US military during the Vietnam War, paint protection film has become integral to professional car detailing. Also known as PPF, clear film and clear paint film, it is designed to offer lasting protection to paintwork.

Furthermore, with the development of the technology behind it, some types of PPF also offer self-healing and hydrophobic properties. Essentially, the thermoplastic urethane coating of PPF forms a thin layer atop your car’s clear coat, offering the paint layer beneath it twice the protection.

If you want to ensure lasting protection of your newly purchased vehicle’s paintwork, paint protection film is for you. Finally, other paintwork protection methods, such as sealants and waxes, mostly provide cover against UV rays and chemical contaminants naturally present in the environment.

Conversely, PPF is designed for physically damaging foreign matter, such as light debris and scratching. Ultimately, this lasting protection for your paintwork will pay dividends when you consider selling your vehicle.
