Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a thermoplastic urethane film applied to painted surfaces of a new or used car in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions. This film is also used on airplanes, RVs, cell phones, electronics, screens, motorcycles and many other areas. Paint Protection Film is OEM approved by virtually all car manufacturers. Paint protection film is commonly referred to as clear bra, clear film, clear paint film, PPF and other names. The different types of protective film can come in different thicknesses and with different types of adhesives and tack levels. The numerous combinations mean that there is a surface protection film for pretty much any application known to man. If you are not sure which type of protective. LDPE, or low-density polyethylene, is the most common type of protective film. It is made from polyethylene, which is the most common type of plastic. As you might guess from the name, there is also a high-density version of polyethylene (HDPE), which is heavier, less flexible, and less elastic—and therefore, not as useful for making protective film. PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is perhaps the best-known type of plastic. PVC film is very elastic and has a slick surface, which makes it ideal for many metal forming applications, among other uses. PP, or polypropylene, is a type of plastic useful for high-heat applications. It is dimensionally stable, which means it holds its shape and size and does not stretch like PVC films. PO, or polyolefin, is a plastic film used on some painted metal surfaces and acrylic glass applications. Paper can also be used as a surface protection film. Paper films are dimensionally stable and can absorb some impacts.
