Remember when your brand new car rolled out of the showroom? That gloss on the exterior as it reflected light, the immaculate shine on the wheels, and the beautiful finish of the dashboard and doors.
Enter Paint Protection Film in India, aka PPF.
Paint protection film (PPF) is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film applied to the painted surfaces of a new or used car in order to help protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions. PPF has been around since the 1950s and has more recently become popularly known as clear bra. But where did paint protection film come from in the first place?
The first usage of PPF dates back to the 1950s during the Vietnam War, when the US Military protected their attack helicopters from damage by using a transparent, lightweight film. Soon, automotive enthusiasts and racecar drivers took note of it and started applying it to their high-speed, high-value cars.
Hence, from the 1950s to the present day, the PPF has evolved and become a highly hydrophobic, self-healing and highly conformable protective layer for cars.
It’s difficult to prevent minor scratches from occurring on vehicles over time. But CarzSpa’s Aegis PPFs have self-healing capabilities. The scratches can go away and the film can go back to its normal state upon being cleaned with warm water or with hot air treatment.
The PPF protects the vehicle’s surface paint from various harmful chemical properties that come in contact with it on a regular basis, like environmental pollutants, bird droppings, tree sap, etc.
Paint Protection Films in India can last up to 10 years. They keep the car looking brand new while resisting its surface paint from scratches and bruises. This further adds to the resale value of the car too.
Another great feature of PPF application on your car is that it protects your car’s body paint from scratches due to minor accidents, abrasions, and rock chips and maintains its near mint condition for years.
A PPF-installed car is easier to clean without worrying about water spotting or swirl marks. Whether your car is exposed to bird droppings, mud, dirt and dust, you can simply clean the exterior with just water, which will slide off easily from the surface without leaving any stains.
The first generation PPFs that were created using PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) material were highly rigid in nature. Which meant chances of it tearing overtime were high. On the contrary, TPU doesn’t puncture, has greater tensile strength up to 30 MPa, higher elasticity with an elongation break of up to 500% and longevity of up to 10 years.
The range of products by CarzSpa Aegis PPF includes Ultra Plus, SPX, Armor, and Matt which offers top-notch performance with great durability, high gloss and supreme protection to vehicle surface paint. At CarzSpa, the paint protection films in India cost anywhere between Rs. 85,500 to Rs. 2,30,000 and above, depending on the type and size of the car.
