PPF film keeps your car ” beautiful”! Bringing innovation to the car industry with the application of TPU technology!

Have you ever heard of a technology called “PPF (Paint Protection Film)?” It is one of the technologies in the “TPU” field, and it is a film that protects car bodies from scratches and dirt, just as a protective film protects a smartphone screen from scratches. PPF film has many advantages not found in waxes and coatings. In this article, we will explain about PPF film.

What is PPF film?

PPF film is an abbreviation for Paint Protection Film. PPF film is made by layering a film base (thermoplastic elastomer resin), an adhesive layer, and a top coat layer. PPF film is made by layering a film base (thermoplastic elastomer resin), an adhesive layer, and a topcoat layer.

PPF film is available in self-healing and weather-resistant types. The self-healing type, which is the most common type, can repair small scratches by allowing time for the film to heal. The weather-resistant type is also scratch-resistant, and in the unlikely event of a major scratch, there is no problem if the film is reapplied.

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, installation on luxury cars is now the mainstream, but as the number of factories and technicians who can do the work increases, the need for installation on ordinary cars is expected to grow in the future.

Example of PPF film installation

  • Body (half wrap, front wrap)
  • Windshield
  • Headlight

Until now, most car coatings have been applied to windows and windshields to protect them from UV rays or to prevent shattering when damaged from the inside, but PPF film is applied to protect the body from scratches, flying stones, and UV rays. In addition, by applying PPF sheets to the headride, it is expected to prevent yellowing of the headlights due to age-related deterioration.
Partial installation is less expensive than full installation on the car body, but there are some disadvantages such as differences in texture and the texture of the aging process, so it is important to consider.

Features and effects of PPF film

The application of PPT film protects the vehicle body from scratches, UV rays, and dirt by covering the body with a thick elastomeric film. Compared to coatings and waxes, PPT film offers greater protection and can be removed to restore the car to its original condition, thus maintaining the condition of a new car and allowing it to fetch a higher price at the time of sale.

In addition, by protecting car wash scratches that have already occurred, PPF film can make them less noticeable and restore the body to a shiny finish.

Difference between PPF film and coding agents/waxes

Protection of car bodies with coatings and waxes requires regular maintenance. While a typical wax requires reapplication every month or so, and a coating agent (resin) every 2-3 months, PPF film does not need to be replaced for 2-5 years on average.
Did you know that coatings and waxes can also be a source of dirt and dullness? Coating agents and waxes that get into the crevices of car wash scratches can damage the shine of the car body.

In this respect, with PPF film, there is no need to worry about unevenness because it can be peeled off and reapplied from scratch.

Advantages and disadvantages in PPF film installation


  • Protection from flying rocks
  • Protection from pollen and ultraviolet rays
  • Protects against scratches when washing the car
  • Avoids shattering of glass
  • High water repellency
  • High water repellency 惻Gives a glossy
  • Gives a glossy finish


  • Self-healing type is prone to water spots (water stains)
  • When parked in an uncovered parking lot, they are prone to yellowing and deterioration due to ultraviolet rays.
  • If the car body is damaged, the paint may peel off when the sheet is removed
  • More expensive than coatings and waxes

The advantages and disadvantages of PPF film were explained. Although maintenance is easier than coatings and waxes, it is necessary to wash the car about once a month to prevent water spots (water stains), pollen, and other contaminants from depositing on the PPF film. Also, the use of a car wash or high-pressure washer may cause the PPF film to partially peel off, so it must be done carefully.
Frequent care is the key to fully demonstrate the luster and water repellency of the PPF film and to keep it in better condition for a longer period of time.

What is the life span of PPF film?

When the PPF film is severely scratched, it will be necessary to replace the entire sheet rather than parts of it. Even if there are no noticeable scratches, the PPF film needs to be replaced when yellowing or water spots (water stains) become noticeable, and we recommend replacing the PPF film after 2 to 5 years on average. Inexpensive PPF film deteriorates quickly, and yellowing may become noticeable in as little as six months, so it is necessary to choose carefully.

In this issue, we introduced PPF film and its installation.
The PPF films we handle are manufactured at our own factory in Japan. We are also confident in our material selection and produce PPF films tailor-made to meet the needs of our customers.

We believe that the PPF film market is a blue ocean because Thailand has many major enemies of cars, such as air pollution and rain. If you are considering introducing PPF film, such as “I would like to handle PPF film,” please contact us.
