Clear film or Paint Protection Film (PPF), is a clear, durable film applied to the painted surfaces of your automobile, providing the ultimate protection from rock chips, UV rays, and other environmental contaminants.
Clear Bra or PPF is similar to window tinting in that it is a translucent film that is applied using solutions. The bubbles and imperfections are all removed using specialized tools and techniques. Once the film is dry it adheres to your car. Unlike window tint, PPF is completely clear and almost invisible once it has cured fully. This type of protection shields your vehicle without altering its original appearance, keeping the exterior in pristine condition, avoiding costly damage repair or paint work. Its durability lasts several years without fading or discoloration, and is easy to clean and maintain while protecting from swirl marks, fading, and staining. In fact, clear film now has self healing capabilities to “heal” itself after light scratches are incurred.
Protection from Rock Chips and Physical Damage
PPF acts as a barrier against one of the most common threats to a car’s finish—rock chips. Whether you’re driving on highways or navigating rough terrain, tiny rocks and debris can be thrown up by other vehicles or the road itself. These projectiles can lead to unsightly paint chips and dings on your car’s surface. PPF forms a resilient layer that absorbs the impact, preventing damage to the paint underneath.
UV Rays and Environmental Contaminants
In addition to physical hazards, PPF offers protection against environmental elements. UV rays from the sun can cause paint to fade and deteriorate over time. PPF acts as a shield against these harmful rays, preserving the vibrant color of your car’s finish. Moreover, it repels environmental contaminants like bird droppings, tree sap, and road grime, making it easier to clean your vehicle and preventing long-term damage.
Applying PPF to your car’s surfaces is a meticulous process. Similar to window tinting, it involves the use of specialized solutions, ensuring a precise fit and adhesion. During installation, trained professionals eliminate any imperfections or bubbles using specialized tools and techniques, resulting in a flawless, virtually invisible protective layer.
One of the key advantages of PPF is its transparency. Once the film has fully cured, it becomes nearly invisible, preserving your vehicle’s original appearance. Unlike some protective coatings that may alter the look of your car, PPF allows the design and color of your vehicle to shine through without any noticeable changes.
Durability and Maintenance
PPF is renowned for its longevity and ease of maintenance. It can last several years without fading, discoloration, or losing its protective properties. The film is resistant to swirl marks, which can occur during regular washing or detailing, and it also guards against staining. What’s more, modern PPF often incorporates self-healing technology. This means that minor scratches or scuffs on the film can “heal” themselves over time, maintaining a smooth and flawless appearance.
