PPF consists of an ultra-thin polyurethane, or polymer, which when properly applied by a professional (typically an auto detailing or vinyl installation expert), forms a transparent protective surface layer. This disposable “skin” protects a car’s clear coat, as well as the paint beneath it from things like surface scratches, UV exposure, hard water deposits, acid rain, oxidation, and various other elements.

The Advantages of Applying PPF on a New Car

If you’re going to invest in a paint protection film to keep your new vehicle’s paintjob and other parts in mint condition, there are several advantages to consider.

  • Produces an enhanced finish. While some PPF’s might improve the shine of your vehicle
  • Superior protection against chemicals and corrosion. Paint protective films are infused with four layers of material, each of them providing roadblocks for harmful contaminants or chemicals to penetrate. It also provides superior stain resistance and reduces paint damage due to stone chips.
  • Instant healing of minor scratches. Most of the top brands of car paint protection have self-healing properties. This means, that minor scratches can be fixed by a detailer, simply by applying direct heat – or with a blowing heat gun. 
  • High temperature resistance. This same nano-tech helps to provide a heat shield, which blocks UV and IR radiation from penetrating to the vehicles surface materials. This unique feature keeps headlights from fogging or fading, which maintains your on-road visibility
