Paint Protection Film (PPF)

The ultimate solution to maintain your vehicle’s pristine paint while preserving its appearance.

What is PPF?

Paint protection film (PPF, also called clear bra, clear film or clear paint film) is a Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film with a self healing top coat. It is applied to the surface of the vehicle in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions.

We also use this film on Motorcycles, Aircraft and Watercraft.

See below for all of our Frequently Asked Questions on PPF.

Key benefits

Most asked questions

Got questions about PPF? You might find the answers here.
PPF is made from a unique mix of urethanes and polimers to provide almost indistinguishable optical clarity while being exceedingly strong.
The vast majority of films on the market carry a 5 year warranty against yellowing, cracking and distortion. However our prefered film SunTek Reaction carries a 12 year warranty against the above.
Yes! The top coat contains a very special product that enables it to heal from minor scratches and abrasions over time. Typcially in a matter of hours. This process can be sped up by the application of a little hot water.
Due to the product used, PPF can self heal an indefinate number of times as long as the top coat is not punctured.
As long as the vehicle is regularly washed, the top coat should last the life of the film. We recommend period application of film coatings such as our recommended Gtechniq Halo to help extend the life of the film.

Reduce your car wash frequency

PPF can reduce the need for washing your vehicle. Our protective films not only keep your paint looking fantastic but it helps prevent the build-up of dirt and grime on your car. Less dirt and grime mean you spend less time washing the vehicle when you do, and that won’t have to be too often.

Protect your paint from scratches

Scratches not only look terrible when they occur but can also lead to a troublesome repair process. PPF will help ward off surface-level scratches that can happen simply from driving your vehicle. Suddenly, small pieces of debris flicking up against your paint are no longer something to be concerned about.

Increase the lifespan of your car’s paint

You picked the vehicle you love in the colour you love, and you should have access to a team that can assist you in keeping it looking fantastic for the near future. Repainting your car due to damage or scratches can be very costly, but luckily you won’t have to worry about that if you have an invisible protective sleeve put over the paint of your car by our professionals.

Preserve the resale value of your vehicle

The installation of a protective film on your car not only safeguards your investment but also ensures that you can maintain a larger share of its resale value. This is achieved by offering continuous protection and preserving the lustrous appearance of your vehicle's paint, making it an attractive choice for potential buyers and securing your car's market value.

Save many hours of your time

If the prices involved in getting the vehicle’s paint job fixed is not a problem for you, consider the amount of time you save. Sending a vehicle in for a paint repair can take much longer if the vehicle does not have a protective film over its paint. With our PPF, you will soon realise just how much time you save without having to spend it waiting on repairs and repaints.

Tips to help you better maintain your paint protection film.

While cleaning is no longer a tedious, complicated process, you should not avoid doing it entirely.

Make sure not to let any dirt sit on the car for too long. Layers of dirt can cause your beautiful vibrancy to dull and create an uneven look in the vehicle's color. The best way to keep it looking spectacular and glossy is to wash your car at least once a week.

Always try to use microfiber cloths when cleaning a car with paint protection film.

The last thing you want is to finish cleaning your car, only to realise that the method you used caused some damage to the paint. Microfibre cloths are a reliable way to achieve a good wash that won't scratch the paint or cause any other problems for your protective film.

Use separate buckets for your soap and rinsing water when washing your car.

Many people opt to use microfiber cloths but forget one of the most important steps: never rinse your cloth in your soapy water. When you wipe dirt from your car, you want to remove any tiny pieces of stone, sticks, or whatever else got stuck to the car before reapplying the cloth. Rinsing in a separate bucket means you won't have anything sticking to the cloth that can damage your paint.

Make sure you use a reliable soap that doesn’t harm your car’s paint over time.

While many will simply want to use dishwashing soap, you should make sure to choose a reliable soap that doesn't contain as many harsh chemicals. You can always talk to our professionals about which soaps we recommend for use after you've received paint protection from us.

Talk to our professionals about waxing your car.

Wax might provide a nice secondary layer of protection for your paint and your car's protective film as it helps fend off tiny pieces of debris or dirt. We recommend discussing with our team which waxes you should use, if any, based on your specific car and paint job.

Try not to park in the beaming sun too often.

If there's one thing we know about the sun, it's that it can cause severe damage to almost anything that remains in it for prolonged periods. While there are ways to mitigate UV damage, the best solution is to keep your vehicle parked under a roof and out of direct sunlight to help increase the longevity of your paint.
