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.
Paint protection film protects your vehicle’s topcoat and paint against common wear and tear damage. It also looks fantastic!
In the car graphics below, the areas in red indicate coverage area, not colour. Paint protection film comes is transparent and can have either a gloss or matte finish.
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.
You care for your vehicle as you normally would. You can safely wash and wax your vehicle. We recommend hand washing.
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.
Yes. PPF can be removed without damaging the factory finish.
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.
We provide paint protection film to Vancouver, Richmond and Lower Mainland clients.
