WHAT IS PPF CAR PROTECTION FILM?
PPF (Paint Protection Film) is a transparent film with self-healing properties that is applied to the car bodywork to protect it from scratches and small dents.
It is also known as Anti-Stone Film because it provides protection from pebbles and gravel, which can cause damage if splashed against the vehicle bodywork. Similarly, the film also provides protection from insects, resins and limescale, as it has high hydrophobic properties.
The self-healing properties of the protective film allow it to self-heal by simply exposing it to the heat of the sun.
