Paint Protection Film Frequently Asked Questions

What is PPF?

Paint protection film, or PPF, is a clear polyurethane film that is applied to the exterior surfaces of your vehicle in order to protect from damages. 

Why is PPF so expensive?

To better understand the pricetage of PPF, we need to talk about what goes into the installation process. PPF installation requires thorough prep work in order to ensure that all dust and debris has been removed. This allows the film to properly adhere to the applied surface. Each piece of PPF is custom cut to fit each panel of your vehicle and provide maximum coverage. The quality of the film and the quality of the installation are what gives paint protection film a high price tag. 

How important is a good paint protection film installation?

The more skilled the installation is, the longer your film will last. A highly skilled technician will likely wrap the edges of the film around each panel of your vehicle, providing a seamless appearance and longer lasting protection. When the edges are tucked, it reduces the likelihood that the film will lift. 

What are the benefits of paint protection film?

Paint protection film protects your vehicle from scratches, rock chips, staining, corrosion, fading, chemicals, insects, and road debris. It helps keep your paint looking like new, saving you money and improving your resale value. A good quality PPF has self-healing properties that allow small scratches disappear with the application of heat.
