Carz shield Paint Protection Film

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 protector 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.

Carz shield has developed its high quality paint protection film together with the specialty techniques that are followed as protocols while covering the car. Our PPF is optically clear and invisible, very strong, highly durable, urethane film that settles evenly on the car body. This film protects your car from abrasions and scratches, which get automatically healed when exposed to mild heat. The PPF also prevents chipping and peeling of the car paint for long.

• Protection from scratches - the PPF offers protection against minor scratches and general wear and tear like that occurs in day to day use.

• It is self healing - paint protection film is a smart polymer and gets self healed in an hour or two under exposure of mild heat like through car engine or the sunlight or warm water.

• Fading resistance - PPF is resistant to fading over time. The film protects the original color for longer time and keeps the car new and shiny.

• Stain resistance - this is the specialty of PPF and it resists the action of diversity of milder chemicals that could be present in environment like the bugs and bird acids, acid rain, and colors from various sources.

• Being highly durable - it is a clear smart urethane film that is very durable and never chips or flakes over time.

• No yellowing over time - the film itself does not turn yellow like the plastic coats of yester age.

• Fully maintenance free - no need for maintenance! Just the simple cleaning and polishing would ensure high luster and shine.

• Easy Replacement - the paint protection film can be easily replaced or removed in a day at the workshop that specializes in PPF tasks. There is no damage to the base paint coat during the removal/replacement.

The traditional application areas of paint protection films have been the front panels of the bonnet and the wheel arches. However, as these films got more refined through tech up gradations, the application of it also increased and now it is used on the entire body of the car. The high quality shine and luster that it delivers, make the passionate owners to crave for full covering of the car. Our highly competent technicians are specialist in delivering custom coats to cover any part of the car including the headlamps.

The prime places to apply the paint protection film on a car can be –
  • Hoods and Bumpers
  • Boot & Roof
  • Door Handles
  • Rocker panels
  • Wing mirrors

These are the places where the car suffers maximum damage due to flying gravel and small stones that get bumped into. Door handles suffer through the scratches produced by the finger nails, keys and rings. The PPF application at these places makes the parts resistant to scratches and hence the car remains shiny forever.

  • With the pattern matching the exact specifications, the complete installation has attempted by the trained technicians.
  • Quality control is generally part of the installation and is ensured throughout with inspections.

We offer a warranty for a period of two years on all the paint protection films that are applied on the body by the certified installers of Carz shield. This is the longest warranty of PPF in India and covers all the major dimensions. The components that are covered in this warranty include the conditions of film getting yellowish, peeling off, lifting and cracking during the warranty time. However the warranty is void in cases of damage due to collision, fire, natural disaster and use of strong solvents (acids, industrial chemicals), case of vehicle modification and the adhesive being tampered with in any manner. We also offer complete ‘after care’ instructions guide to all our customers that allows them to keep their car shining forever. To find complete information on the PPF warranty visit out web page on ‘warranty’ or call Carz shield anytime.

The ‘after care instructions’ form important part of the maintenance of the car and serve towards retaining the shine and luster for long. While the film allows simple cleaning activities, some care needs to be taken as regards the use of solvents and other substances on the car. Specific instructions include –

  • Do not wash vehicle for 48 hours after installation.
  • Avoid to spray the edges of the film with a pressure washer or a nozzle directly.
    • There’s chance of lifting the edge of the film
    • When using the high pressure washer, make far from the car at least 36” distance.
  • Do not use pigmented or abrasive waxes or waxes contain Naphtha or Kerosene
  • Do not use any abrasive pads or harsh chemicals on the film.
  • Recommended waxes after installation and at least once every 6 months.
  • Frequently wax and wash is recommended.
  • Remove stains as soon as possible with bug or tar remover.
  • Stubborn stain can be removed with alcohol.
  • Avoid to wipe the film in direct sunlight or film is hot.

What is PPF made of?

This clear film is made from special acrylics, polyurethane and urethane which are advanced polymers that offer high quality transparency and luster.

Is it necessary to get the PPF application done through a certified installer?

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.

Can all parts of the car be covered with PPF?

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.

How does this clear film self-heals?

Being a polymer, the molecules in the upper layers re-align under exposure of mild heat to cover up the scratches.

How long it takes the scratches to heal?

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.

What type of scratches would be healed?

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.

How many times does a PPF can heal self?

There is no limit to the number of times, a PPF could heal self. The polymer molecules adjust them under the heat impact.

How long, the PPF is effective against scratches?

Paint protection films can last indefinitely, if proper care and maintenance is done.

How the PPF does resists stains?

The specific molecular structure of PPF results in very low surface energy. This negates the chances of any compound getting the requisite adhesion force with the film and hence no stains.

Is the film removable?

Yes, the paint protection film is removable!

Who can remove the film?

The removal process needs to be done at the certified service provider only as it requires specialized skills and instruments.

Does removing the film damages the base paint?

Damage may occur during the removal of the PPF if prior to installation, proper paint correction and sealant was not applied.

What needs to be done for maintenance of the PPF?

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.
