    What is Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra) ?

    Paint protection film (PPF) is a thermoplastic polyurethane sheeting that adheres to your vehicle’s surface, protecting its clearcoat and paint from rock chips, scratches, road grime, bug and bird stains and environmental damage. PPF is most often glossy but matte or satin finishes are available. PPF is intended to be permanent but can be removed without damage to a vehicle’s original paint.


    Our Vancouver paint protection film customers usually choose a full-coverage wrap, but partial coverage packages that protect only the most vulnerable areas are also available. PPF may be applied to cars, sports and exotic cars, SUVs, trucks, vans, recreational vehicles and even motorcycles.

    Clear Wrap

    Clear wraps maintain the original paint color of your vehicle while offering the same level of protection as other PPF options. It’s an excellent choice for car owners who want to preserve the original look of their vehicle while still ensuring its protection.

    Color Wrap

    Color wraps allow you to change the appearance of your vehicle by choosing a new color or finish. These wraps not only provide protection for your car’s exterior but also give it a fresh, personalized look that sets it apart from others on the road.

    Protective Car Wrap

    Protective car wraps are designed specifically to shield your vehicle from environmental hazards such as scratches, stone chips, and UV rays. This option is ideal for those who want a PPF that focuses on protecting their vehicle from potential damage.

    Satin and Matte Wraps

    For those looking for a unique appearance, Gleamworks offers satin and matte wraps. These wraps give your vehicle a distinctive look while providing the same level of protection as other PPF options. Satin wraps have a subtle sheen, while matte wraps have a non-reflective, flat finish. Both finishes add a touch of sophistication to your vehicle’s appearance.

    Benefits of PPF on Specific Car Parts

    Gleamworks proudly offers top PPF brands known for its durability, clarity, and warranties. Using high-quality materials like XPEL, STEK ensures long-lasting protection for your vehicle.

    Advantages of XPEL

    XPEL stands out for its superior durability, providing excellent resistance to yellowing, cracking, and peeling. Its outstanding clarity ensures the film remains virtually invisible, while its warranties offer peace of mind for customers seeking long-term protection.

    Importance of High-Quality Materials

    Interior Car Protection Film

    In addition to exterior protection, Gleamworks offers interior car protection film to preserve your vehicle’s interior surfaces. This film can help maintain a clean and fresh-looking interior by protecting door sills, consoles, and touchscreens.

    Benefits of Interior Car Protection Film

    Interior car protection film is an excellent way to safeguard your vehicle’s interior surfaces from scratches, scuffs, and stains. By protecting these areas, you can maintain the appearance of your vehicle’s interior and potentially increase its resale value.

    Key Areas to Apply Paint Protection Film

    Front Bumper and Hood

    The front bumper and hood are the first points of contact for road debris, making them highly susceptible to stone chips and scratches. Applying PPF to these areas ensures maximum protection against these common types of damage.

    Fenders and Side Mirrors

    Fenders and side mirrors are also prone to damage from stones, debris, and other road hazards. Applying PPF to these areas will help protect them from potential scratches and dents, maintaining the vehicle’s aesthetic appeal.

    Door Handle Cups and Rocker Panels

    Door handle cups often experience wear and tear due to frequent use, while rocker panels are vulnerable to debris kicked up by tires. PPF application in these areas can significantly reduce the likelihood of scratches and other damage, preserving the vehicle’s overall appearance.

    Rear Wheel Arches

    Rear wheel arches are another area that can be prone to damage from road debris. PPF application to these areas can help minimize the risk of stone chips and scratches, ensuring that your vehicle remains in excellent condition.

    Customized Coverage

    In addition to the key areas mentioned above, you can also choose to apply PPF to other parts of your vehicle for added protection. Customized coverage options allow you to target specific areas that may be more prone to damage based on your driving habits and environment.

    Importance of PPF Application

    PPF is essential for protecting your vehicle from stone chips, scratches, and other types of damage that can occur over time. By applying PPF to these high-impact areas, you can significantly reduce the potential for damage and maintain your vehicle’s appearance.

    Benefits of PPF on Specific Car Parts

    Front Bumper and Hood Protection

    PPF on the front bumper and hood provides a barrier against stone chips and scratches, which are common due to their forward-facing position. This protection helps maintain the vehicle’s appearance and resale value.

    Side Mirror Protection

    Side mirrors are prone to damage from passing vehicles, road debris, and even vandalism. PPF on side mirrors can prevent scratches and other damage, ensuring that they remain functional and visually appealing.

    Door Handle Cup Protection

    Door handle cups are subject to scratches and scuffs from rings, keys, and fingernails during daily use. PPF application in these areas can significantly reduce the likelihood of damage, preserving your vehicle’s aesthetic appeal.

    Rocker Panel Protection

    Rocker panels are located near the bottom of the car and are vulnerable to debris kicked up by the tires. Applying PPF to rocker panels helps shield them from potential damage, ensuring they remain in good condition and free from unsightly scratches.

    Rear Wheel Arch Protection

    Rear wheel arches can also be exposed to debris, leading to stone chips and scratches. PPF on rear wheel arches provides a protective barrier that helps maintain the vehicle’s appearance and protects its paintwork.

    Comprehensive Vehicle Protection

    By applying PPF to these specific car parts, you not only protect the individual components but also contribute to the overall protection of your vehicle. This comprehensive approach helps maintain your car’s appearance, functionality, and resale value.


    How long does it take to apply paint protection film?

    Usually, a PPF wrap takes 1 full day. In most cases, you can drop your car off in the morning and pick it up in the late afternoon. Occasionally, our technician may require 2 days.

    Are there any special care instructions for paint protection film?

    You care for your vehicle as you normally would. You can safely wash and wax your vehicle. We recommend hand washing.

    What happens if the film gets scratched?

    In most cases, light scatches won’t harm the PPF. Our paint protection films are “self-healing”. They are created with polymers that continue to flow and level even after the film has cured. Most light scratches and swirl marks in the film will slowly fill in as the polymer reflows. This “filling in” can be accelerated with the help of a warm-air blow dryer.

    Can paint protection film be removed?

    Yes. PPF can be removed without damaging the factory finish.

    What kind of vehicles can use PPF?

    PPF can be applied to any car, whether the family sedan or a Ferrari! Paint protection film can be used on cars, sports cars, luxury vehicles, exotic and collector vehicles, SUVs, vans, trucks, recreational vehicles and motorcycles.
