What is PPF? Paint protection film (PPF) is a urethane film applied to cars and other painted surfaces. The film is colorless and is also called a “clear bra” or a “clear film”. It protects painted surfaces from stone chips and minor abrasions. PPF was originally developed for military helicopters to minimize damage from shrapnel and projectiles. Later it was adopted by the car racing industry. Today, people apply PPF to high-end vehicles to protect against scuffs and scratches. Some films have self-healing capabilities and can reform itself after minor injuries.
How is PPF Installed? Installation of the paint protection film is work intensive and requires a great deal of patience and precision. The film can be pre-cut to your vehicle’s dimensions or, if pre-cuts are not available, bulk film is custom cut at the time of installation. In very simple terms, installation involves:
1) wrapping the film around parts of the car,
2) trimming the film to match the size of your car, and then
3) using a squeegy, much effort is placed into removing bubbles and creases.
When done, the film should be perfectly sized and smoothly installed onto the car’s surface.
Some vehicle owners chose to install the PPF on high impact areas such as the front bumper or the rear wheel arch where it is more likely to meet rocks and debris. Though, PPF can be applied to the entire car for extra protection. This is particularly important to enthusiasts with high-end, vintage, or custom built cars.
How much will this all cost? you might ask. That depends on many factors:
