Paint Protection Film (PPF)
We understand that the first nick always hurts the most.
Preserving the finish of your vehicle with paint protection film (PPF) keeps your vehicle looking newer longer, and can retain the resale value of your vehicle in the future.
Paint protection film is a thermoplastic urethane often self healing film applied to painted surfaces of a new or used car in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions.
Since your vehicle’s finish is put to the test by the road, garage, weather, and everyday use, why not keep it looking the way it came out of the showroom if you can?
Paint protection film is one of the best ways to preserve the showroom quality finish on your vehicle without altering its design features or colour.
More about Paint Protection Film (PPF)
Paint Protection Film is a thick, durable, virtually invisible film that protects your vehicle’s vulnerable areas such as the front bumper, bonnet, side mirrors, door edges, fender panels, and more.
We have a wide range of PPF products we use at Enhance from films with self healing properties when heat is applied to PPF which does not self heal, both of which range from 5 year warranty to 10 year warranty dependant on material chosen.
Paint Protection Film (PPF) FAQ’s
WHAT IS PPF?
Paint Protection Film is a Wrap of thin flexible material made from Polyurethane which can be applied to most surfaces to create an optically clear layer of protection between the surface and the everyday rigours of the outside environment.
WHAT DOES PAINT PROTECTION FILM PROTECT?
Paint Protection Film provides protection from stone chips, minor scratches, harmful effects of chemicals, bird droppings, and other roadway hazards.
Paint Protection Film is not designed to stop or prevent damage to the vehicle bodywork i.e. dents. Most films have a self-healing property which is designed to repair itself from swirl marks and light scratches, however, if a piece of debris penetrates this layer of the film the self-healing property will no longer function.
Vehicles can be repainted to reverse the effect of stone chips/road rash, however this now puts the integrity of the vehicle history at doubt – was it just stone chips or a larger accident? For around the same cost of a front-end repair you may be able to have PPF installed and enjoy driving carefree, without any potential paint damage now or in the future! The vehicle will command a higher value during trade-in or resale.
WHAT ARE PRE CUT KITS?
When installing a PPF, there are two main methods to do this, one of which is a bulk install as we would do when wrapping a vehicle in a colour change vinyl where the film is applied and then scored on the vehicle to the desired shape, the other is a pre-cut kit.
The team over at Eastman Group and PremiumShield have built a database of each and every vehicle currently on the market since 2002 which allow us to run the PPF through our Graphtec Plotting machine to essentially cut a template of your specific vehicle from the film which when applied is within mm of tolerance in shape and size.
Can Ceramic be installed on top of PPF?
We offer a wide range of ceramic coatings, but more specifically, the IGL KENZO graphene infused can be used on PPF due to its flexible “breathing” capabilities. This will allow the PPF to self heal as per standard whilst also increasing the level of protection.
You’ll never believe that your vehicle or space could look that good and promote your business that much!
