Paint protection film belongs to thermoplastic urethane material. These are the special type of protective films applied on the painted surface of a vehicle to protect the surface from impact, abrasion agents, and offers resistance against light and heat. The abrasion agents include bug splatters, minor abrasives, and stone chips.
The major advantage of these films is that they greatly help in retaining the showroom quality of vehicle and enhances its appearance. Pain protective films are commonly known as clear film, clear paint film, and PPF. They are majorly used to prevent damage to the automotive surface and other vehicles, from rock chips and dust particles. Apart from automotive, these films are also used in the electrical & electronics and aerospace & defense.
