Paint Protection Film
What is paint protection film?
Paint Protection Film, also known as PPF or clear bra, consists of thin sheets of urethane film that, when applied to your vehicle, provides incredible & invisible paint protection. With self-healing capabilities, paint protection film erases small scratches & rock chips leaving your car, truck, SUV or EV vehicle looking its very best. Paint protection film can be applied in a partial or full wrap, depending on your paint protection needs. With a partial PPF wrap, you are able to protect high-traffic areas like bumpers, rocker panels, side panels, and more. It is also important to note that the quality of the clear bra, used along with the installation process, both play a huge role in the overall level of paint protection & finished vehicle aesthetic. Utilizing the services of an advanced certified installer, along with paint protection film from reputable high-quality manufacturers, ensures you are left with the best paint protection film installation imaginable.
What are the benefits of paint protection film (PPF)?
Paint protection film is the most durable, long-lasting form of vehicle paint protection. Self-healing technology ensures any scratches or chips repair themselves while also leaving your vehicle looking its very best. Ease of maintenance and the ability to change the finish of your vehicle are even more added benefits. With high gloss and matte/satin finish options you can change the look of your vehicle without ever harming the original factory paint. High quality PPF films installed by certified professionals are always backed by great manufacturer warranties. Plus, not only is your vehicle protected so it stays looking as new as possible, having paint protection film installed on your vehicle also helps to maintain and even increase vehicle resale value.
How much does paint protection film cost?
There are a number of factors that contribute to the cost of having paint protection film applied to your vehicle. Some of these factors include the type of clear bra package you choose if it’s a partial or full wrap, type of finish you are looking to achieve, condition of the vehicle prior to PPF installation, and quality of film used. While it may seem enticing to go with the cheapest option you find, keep in mind that you always get what you pay for. High-quality film installed by advanced certified PPF professionals ensures your film will last for years to come while also leaving your vehicle looking its very best.
Is PPF or a Ceramic Coating better?
PPF and ceramic coatings both offer premium vehicle protection, but also bring to the table different protective properties. PPF has self healing capabilities making it the best choice when it comes to protection against rock chips, scratches and other damage caused by road debris and weather related elements. Ceramic coatings, on the other hand, provide you with an intense gloss and hydrophobicity meaning that water spots, bug spatter, and grime repel right off. This makes vehicle maintenance simple and easy without ever compromising gloss & shine. Pair PPF with a ceramic coating, and you get the best paint protection possible for your vehicle. Together the two prevent oxidation and acid damage leaving you with the ultimate protective barrier, as well as an intense gloss and enhanced vehicle aesthetic.
What is a ceramic coating?
Ceramic coatings are formed utilizing nano-ceramic technology to create a liquid polymer that when applied to your vehicle, creates a glass-like, high gloss shield. Ceramic coatings are designed with hydrophobic properties that make bug spatter, insect acid, water, rain, and other elements repel right off. They also provide a deep, intense gloss and shine that greatly enhances vehicle aesthetics while keeping it looking new for years to come. Ceramic coatings are applied by hand and should be applied by a professional ceramic coating installer for the best outcome. Once applied, the nano-particles within the coating bond to the porous surface of a vehicle, offering incredible paint protection and enhanced vehicle aesthetics.
Can you combine PPF with a ceramic coating?
Yes! In fact, having both paint protection film installed and a ceramic coating applied to your vehicle will leave you with the ultimate paint protection. However, while you can combine ceramic coatings and PPF, the type of ceramic coating used along with the quality of paint protection film makes all the difference. MMT ceramic coatings were developed to perform with PPF and painted surfaces. Paint protection film’s self-healing capabilities and durable paint protection combined with a ceramic coating’s incredible UV protection & superior hydrophobic capabilities offer the highest level of paint protection while promoting overall vehicle aesthetics
Are ceramic coatings worth it?
Yes! A ceramic coating for your car provides superior shine, gloss, and protection from UV damage when installed by a certified professional. Ceramic coatings also repel dirt, grime, and water and cannot be washed off like wax. In fact, if a ceramic coating is applied correctly, it will last for years to come. While ceramic coatings make vehicle maintenance exceptionally easy it is important to note that following a proper care routine greatly affects the durability and longevity of your ceramic coating. The time and money you will save on not having to wax your vehicle make having a ceramic coating pay for itself in a short amount of time.
What is better wax or a ceramic coating?
Ceramic coatings far surpass wax in all areas. While wax fills in the porous surface of your vehicle, a ceramic coating coats it. Car wax is made with silicon and oils, which means when you wash your car, you are also washing away the wax applied to your vehicle. With a ceramic coating, you don’t have to worry about washing away the coating when following vehicle maintenance instructions provided by your ceramic coating installer. Wax must also be applied numerous times throughout the year, while a ceramic coating only needs to be applied once. Ceramic coatings also help to increase and maintain vehicle resale value while wax does not. The choice is clear, a ceramic coating for your car “outshines” car wax any day…and we don’t just mean in vehicle gloss and shine!
What is ceramic window tint?
Ceramic window tint is the most durable window film on the market and offers incredible protection and style for your vehicle.

Ceramic window film, as with any other type of window tint for your car, should always be installed by a professional installer that is not only certified but has the experience along with the certification.

Is ceramic or carbon window tint better?
Carbon and Ceramic window tint are both great options when it comes to high-quality & durable window film. Both films help reject solar or infrared heat without any signal interference. So what are the differences between carbon and ceramic window film? Carbon window film is created using carbon particles mixed into the film. It is a step up from metalized window film and provides great heat rejection. However, ceramic window film does all that and more, or should we say is the superior option for ultimate protection. Ceramic window films are created using ceramic particles that help to prevent sun glare, block UV rays and reject a higher level of solar heat. Ceramic window films add class and style to any vehicle – car, truck, SUV, exotic, EV, or luxury – and enhances privacy. Anti-shattering properties also promote vehicle safety & security. While ceramic window film may be the creme de la creme of window films, carbon window films are another incredible window tint option depending on your budget & window tint needs.
