Paint protection film or PPF is a thermoplastic clear urethane film that is now used on cars as a preventive measure against any kind of scratches, paint chipping and abrasions of minor type. Originally, it was developed for the military in US to coat the blades of helicopter rotors so as to prevent the abrasion and damage due to flying debris. Gradually it started to be used as a protective film for the cars. PPF is a clear transparent film that attaches itself on the surface and also delivers shine and gloss which makes it apt for aesthetic enhancement of cars.
This clear film is made from special acrylics, polyurethane and urethane which are advanced polymers that offer high quality transparency and luster.
Yes, because the installation itself is a specialized technique that demands specific skills. Getting the PPF installed by an uncertified service provider may result in reduced results as also defects.
Yes, PPF applications are available for the entire car body. We custom design the patterns for each part and offer to cover every inch of the body.
Being a polymer, the molecules in the upper layers re-align under exposure of mild heat to cover up the scratches.
The healing is dependent on the ambient temperature. Minor scratches generally heal in an hour or two at room temperature. In hotter climates or through the use of warm water, this period gets shortened.
Minor scratches occurring through day to day wear and tear like the swirl marks are self-healed over time. Scratches involving the penetration of the film deep are not healed.
There is no limit to the number of times, a PPF could heal self. The polymer molecules adjust them under the heat impact.
Yes, the paint protection film is removable!
The removal process needs to be done at the certified service provider only as it requires specialized skills and instruments.
Damage may occur during the removal of the PPF if prior to installation, proper paint correction and sealant was not applied.
The maintenance of the PPF is very easy. We offer complete care guide to our customers together with the precautions and recommended products to be applied on the film for best results. Do not use pigmented or abrasive waxes or waxes contain Naphtha or Kerosene.
