What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint protection film, also known as PPF or clear bra is a typically clear urethane film designed to provide an end all be all solution against damaging impacts like rock chips, parking lot dings and scratches. The film provides an 8 mil thick barrier and features a self-healing, clear coated top layer.
Why Should I Get PPF on My Car?
A new vehicle is generally the second largest investment people make aside from a house. PPF will help protect this investment.
How Long Does Paint Protection Film Last?
Must current films from respectable brands such as STEK, LLumar, Xpel, Suntek and 3M offer a 10-year manufacturer warranty. These warranties covers product defects such as yellowing, fading, cracking, or bubbling.
What’s Better? Ceramic Coating or PPF?
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 a 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 rear wheel arch. Once the most vulnerable areas are protected with Paint Protection Film, your whole car receives a 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 film, 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. Everywhere else on the vehicle, whether protected by film or not, the Ceramic Coating will thwart oxidation and chemical etch marks or stains. Moreover, the hydrophobic surface will make it harder for contaminants to bond to the vehicle, keeping the paint cleaner and making it easier to wash. The smooth surface of the Ceramic Coating will also enhance the gloss of your vehicle’s factory paint. Together, the two products will preserve your car’s paint over the long-term, and enhance its appearance on a day-to-day basis.
