Paint Protection Film Portland
Paint Protection Film: Paint Protection Film (PPF), also referred to as automotive paint protection film, clear bra, paint shield, and clear car bra, is essentially a thin layer of protective material that is attached or treated directly onto the painted surface of a vehicle where superfluous paint damage is most likely to occur, typically around the front bumper, lower doors, fenders, and side view mirrors. This clear adhesive film shields paint from rock chips, ultraviolet light rays (sun), stone dings, bug splats etc., which are all common contributors to paint fading over time.
How It Works
The main idea behind paint protection film is to protect the paint of your car from scratches or paint chips caused by rocks or debris kicked up onto the body of your car while you are driving. In addition to paint protection, PPF (paint protection films) have a few other functions as well. PPF creates a better, more uniform paint job as it smooths out paint imperfections and makes your paint finish more uniform by filling in those small paint chips that you may have on the paint of your car which would normally require an auto body paint touch up or repainting.
In order to use paint protection film on a vehicle, the paint has to be very clear with no layers of wax or similar substances that would prevent paint protection film from sticking properly. The car paint is first prepped and polished as it has to be free of swirl marks and other paint damage that paint protection film cannot protect.
Benefits of Paint Protection Film
Paint protection films offer a relatively inexpensive way for people to prevent their vehicles from damage caused by rock chips and road debris. It is more cost effective than repainting their vehicles after small scratches develop into large paint chips because it prevents the damage from occurring in the first place. In addition, some paint films help reduce interior noise levels. PPF can be combined with a ceramic coating to provide the best protection for your vehicle possible with today’s modern technology. PPF offers self healing properties and protection from rock chips and deeper scratches while a ceramic coating offers water repelling characteristics as well as easy cleaning and maintenance for your vehicle. The combination of these two paint protection products provides your vehicle paint with the maximum protection available on the market.

Disadvantages of Paint Protection Film
One downside of these films is that if rocks and debris hit a car’s paint when the paint protection film hasn’t been installed, there may be damage that goes beyond what the paint protection film can cover up. These types of incidents occur infrequently enough to make this disadvantage minimal for most people who want paint protection films. A few things that paint protection film does not provide are thermal insulation, paint-less dent removal, paint defect removal, paint swirl mark removal, paint restoration, paint touchups etc. As for paint protection film durability and longevity, it depends on how often the car is used or driven as well as environmental factors such as UV exposure and extreme temperature changes.
