A Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a clear, thermoplastic urethane film that is applied to a vehicle to protect it from rocks, bugs, any any other road debris that could damage the paint of your vehicle. Most often this film is applied to the front end of a vehicle but can even cover the entire car for maximum protection.

Benefits of having a Paint Protection Film?

Paint Protection Film is about protecting your vehicle from the elements. It is also an investment in the value of your vehicle. If the Paint Protection Film remains unbroken, the paint beneath will look good as new, and save you thousands of dollars having to repaint your car.

To keep your film looking great, follow a few simple guidelines:

  • Wait 48 hours after installation to wash your car.

  • Remove insect or other stains as soon as possible with Isopropyl alcohol.

  • Stubborn stains can be removed with 99% isopropyl alcohol or lacquer thinner. Take care to keep these chemicals off the vehicle’s paint.

  • Seal with Paint Protection Film Sealant at least once every 3 months to preserve high gloss or choose one of our premium sealants at Sekanskin for extended protection.

  • Light scratches in the film will self-heal in 20-30 minutes at room temperature. In colder conditions, or to accelerate the process, pour warm water (120°F) over the affected area.

Recently painted you vehicle?

We recommend that any vehicle with repainted surfaces to be fully cured before installing film to the surface. It is often good to ask your body shop about how long they recommend for the paint to fully cure. If you have touched up on chips and scratches then it is recommended to allow the touch up to fully cure a few hours before installation of film otherwise the touch up paint can peel off during the installation. 3M ScotchGard is designed to be used on any fully cured paint surface.
