Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a thermoplastic polyurethane film used on painted surfaces of automobiles. UPPF would like to share with you how this protective film is made, and what is the technology behind it?

This paint protection film was originally developed for the military to protect helicopter blades from sand and debris damage, and it has since been adapted for use on cars. PPF is made up of several layers, each with its own specific purpose.

How is paint protection film made?

Paint protection film is made from a clear polyurethane material that is applied to the painted surfaces of a vehicle. This material is then cut to fit the contours of the vehicle and applied by hand or with a machine. The film is then allowed to dry and cures to form a protective layer over the paint.

Technology behind PPF

The technology behind paint protection film (PPF) is constantly evolving to provide drivers with the best possible protection for their vehicles. The film is made from a clear urethane material that is applied to the vehicle's surface. This material is then cured, or hardened, using ultraviolet (UV) light.

The key ingredient is urethane, a powerful and versatile polymer made from carbamate links. As a compound, it has unique attributes: It is lightweight and transparent, like plastic. But unlike plastic, it is not brittle or susceptible to tears and cracks. It has a high resistance to impact, abrasion, and corrosion. It is also incredibly flexible and can return to its natural shape after being stretched or disfigured.

The latest generations of PPF are optically clear and offer superior durability and resistance to yellowing, staining, and cracking. They also provide excellent clarity and transparency, making them virtually invisible once installed.
