Porsche ppf wrap

When it comes to customizing and protecting your vehicle, multiple options are available. Our shop specializes in Paint Protection Film Wraps and Vinyl Wraps, so we often receive multiple questions as to which wrap option is the best, and how the two compare. In this blog post we are aiming to answer one question, – what’s better, PPF or Vinyl Wrap? We are hoping to help you find the film that works best for your specific needs.

We would like to begin the comparison between the two by first explaining what PPF and Vinyl Wraps are.

What is PPF:

PPF, which stands for Paint Protection Film (also known as clearbra) is a virtually invisible, typically 8 mil thick self-healing urethane film which is applied to the surface of your vehicle. It offers superior impact protection, keeping the paint of your car safe from scuffs, scratches and rock chips. In addition to impact protection it also helps keep the paint of your car from negative effects of the environment, such as oil spills, bird droppings, and water marks. It also keeps your car safe from negative effects of the UV light, protecting the paint from fading.

What is Vinyl Wrap:

Vinyl wrap is a thin and flexible material, made out of PVC. It is typically 3-4 mil thick, and it comes in different colours, finishes, and textures. Vinyl wrap film comes with a specially formulated adhesive in the back, which allows the material to safely adhere to the surface, and take the shape of whatever it is applied to. Vinyl wrap is mostly used for the purpose of altering the look of your car. Due to an extensive variety of colours and finishes your options are pretty much limitless. Vinyl wrap can also be used for accent pieces, meaning only certain part of the car are wrapped. One of the most popular partial wraps is a chromedelte, when all chrome surfaces of the vehicle are wrapped in vinyl (usually black, however options are not limited).

Now when we gave you a little bit of background of what each film does, it is time to move on to the comparison itself. 

PPF or Vinyl Wrap Purpose:

As mentioned previously, PPF and Vinyl Wraps serve slightly different purposes. PPF’s main purpose is to protect the paint of the vehicle from damage. Since the film is clear (although different coloured variations of PPF are entering the market now), it does not make your vehicle look different. It might make it slightly more shiny, however, you wont see any major differences in appearance. Because the film is designed to protect the surface, it is thicker than vinyl, in order to be able to actually protect the paint from impact. 

Vinyl wraps, on the other hand, drastically change the look of your car. Transformations that can be achieved with vinyl wraps are incredible. You an go from white to black, add custom accents, cover chrome areas, or add custom graphics. The main purpose of vinyl wraps is to customize the appearance of your vehicle, so the film is designed with this goal in mind. For that reason it is thinner than PPF, and is slightly more flexible. 

Surface Protection:

While PPF is still the best way to protect the car from exterior damage, Vinyl Wrap can also serve similar purpose. Although not as thick, it still covers the paint of your car, creating a slight barrier. Obviously, vinyl wraps will not protect the paint from a deep scratch or a scuff, but they will protect it from minor rock chips, bird droppings and negative effects of UV light.  

To put it simply, PPF is perfect if you are looking for an extensive protection. It is perfect for an off-road or highway driving. However, if you are mostly driving in the city, vinyl wraps are able to provide a degree of protection as well. 

PPF or Vinyl Wrap Packages:

PPF and Vinyl Wrap Films offer slightly different packages, based on areas to cover. Since PPF is transparent, there is no problem in partially covering the car. In fact, the most popular PPF package is a Full Front package, which covers only the front of the vehicle (bumper, hood, fenders, and mirrors). 

Vinyl wrap , on the other hand, is typically applied to the whole vehicle, unless a client is looking for a custom design. 

Price:

PPF jobs usually cost more than vinyl wrap jobs. You can expect to pay around $5000+ for a full PPF wrap on a sedan. Meanwhile, a full vinyl wrap will typically cost you around $3400 for a similar sized vehicle. It is due to the material cost, which is much higher for PPF, and installation process, which can be a bit more complicated. If you are looking to get a quote for your wrap job, get in touch and we will be able to help you!

Installation:

PPF and Vinyl Wraps are installed differently. PPF uses wet installation, meaning the film needs to be wet in order to adhere to the surface of your car. Installers typically use a mix of soap and water, or an installation gel. 

Vinyl wrap, on the other hand, installed dry. In fact, any water during installation process can make wrap job fail. The film does not stick to wet surfaces at all. 

Another major difference between the two is how the material is cut. PPF films typically use special cutting software, which comes with a variety of patterns that fit each part of the vehicle. PPF is cut by a plotter, specifically to fit the part it is being applied to. 

Vinyl Wraps are cut by hand. Installers normally cut a piece big enough to cover required area, and then trim it once the material is installed. 

Paint Condition:

It is important to make sure your paint is in good condition prior to installing any type of wrap on your car. Since PPF is clear, it will show any paint imperfections that your car might have. We always recommend to get paint correction, if the paint is in bad condition. The ideal time to apply PPF is when the car was just picked up from the dealership. That way you can ensure you are protecting the paint which has not yet been damaged. Applying PPF after the car has been driven for some time will not give you the same results. It will protect the car from future damage, however it will not mask any damage that was previously done. 

Vinyl wraps are a bit more forgiving. Since Vinyl Film is not transparent, it will hide any visual imperfections. However, if your car has rock chips or is missing paint, it will show through the film. Any textured imperfections will be noticeable through the vinyl. 

Longevity:

Both, PPF and Vinyl Wrap Films, when installed properly, will last for a while.

Typically, when cared for properly, Paint Protection Films will last for about 10 years.

Vinyl wraps, if cared for properly, will last for about 5 years.

Both films, if they come from reputable manufacturer, will not damage your paint if its original condition was good. 

Things To Keep In Mind:

There are several things you should keep in mind when making your decision on which film to go with. 

Although PPF is transparent, overtime you might notice the edges of wrap are beginning to show more. PPF is typically not wrapped around the edge of the panel, so overtime the cut line might start to accumulate dirt and become slightly more visible. It is especially noticeable on partial PPF wraps, like partial hood for example.  

In terms of Vinyl Wraps, you should always keep in mind that the original colour of paint might show through in the gaps between panels in some instances. Black Cars are usually the easiest ones to wrap, and this difference is not noticeable. However, if your car is going from white to black, you might still see some white peeking through the gaps. It happens because some areas between panels are simply not reachable, and there is no way to wrap them. We do, however, cover as much of the original colour in gaps as possible. We always aim to create a paint looking finish.

Conclusion: PPF or Vinyl Wrap? 

In short, there is no way of saying which film is best. Both are great and are serving slightly different purposes. 

If you are looking to change the look of your vehicle, and slightly protect it while driving in the city, Vinyl Wrap is your choice! It adds some level of protection, and allows you to save a couple extra thousands of dollars. 

If you do need that full protection against pretty much anything the road can throw at you, and you do have the budget, – PPF is your choice! It is best to apply PPF on your car as soon as you pick it up from the dealership. That way you can ensure the original condition of your paint remains pristine for years to come!

paint protection film

Paint Protection Film, also known as Clear Bra, is the best solution to keep the exterior of your paint looking brand new for longer. Due to its composition and self-healing properties, PPF protects your vehicle from scuffs, rock chips and scratches. In addition, it provides UV protection and keeps the paint safe from negative impact of salt, bird droppings and chemical stains. Due to its increased popularity, many companies nowadays produce Paint Protection Film. So the question becomes obvious, – what brand of paint protection films is the best and how to choose the correct film?

While all major films feature self healing properties, great clarity, reduced orange peel and superior impact protection, there are still some features that are unique to each brand. In this blog post we are giving you an overview of major PPF brands, and their key features.

XPEL

When it comes to Paint Protection Film, XPEL is usually the first name that comes to mind. Founded in 1997, XPEL is the world’s first heat activated self-healing PPF. It is an 8 mil thick film which heals on its own when the surface is exposed to heat. It provides superior surface protection against rock chips, scratches and scuffs.

Cutting Software

One of the major benefits of XPEL films is their own DAP software. It is a library of pre-cut PPF patterns for majority of car models. This software allows to cut pieces precisely for each part of the specific vehicle. In addition, this software allows an installer to customize each piece if desired, to achieve an extra coverage. So choosing an XPEL film usually means that each panel will be wrapped in a piece that fits it precisely.

Features

XPEL features non yellowing finish, and minimal orange peel, which means that the film will not yellow over time, and will keep its smooth texture. XPEL films edge seal technology also prevents the film from lifting, and keeps corners and sides adhered to the surface. The film has a low surface energy which allows it to resist staining and protect the surface from negative environmental conditions.

Options

When it comes to choosing the right type of XPEL film, you are provided with an extensive variety of options.

Ultimate Plus:

One of the most popular XPEL PPF films is XPEL Ultimate Plus. It is an invisible protective film featuring high gloss finish and extreme impact protection. This film also comes in 2 other varieties, – Ultimate Plus 7, and Ultimate Plus 10. Ultimate Plus 7 is a thinner version of Ultimate Plus. It is great for an interior use due to its thinner construction. Ultimate Plus 10, on the contrary, is a thicker film, used primarily for heavy duty off road vehicles, that are more susceptible to getting damaged.expel paint protection film

Stealth

Stealth Paint Protection Film is designed specifically for matte or satin vehicles. It features flat finish while offering the same level of protection. So if you are looking to protect your matte vehicle, or turn your gloss paint into matte, – Stealth is your best choice.mercedes e63 stealth paint protection

Warranty

XPEL offers a 10 year manufacturing warranty from the date of purchase for all of its films. It covers manufacturing defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and delaminating.

Kavaca by Ceramic Pro

A new generation of Paint Protection Films, Kavaca by Ceramic Pro, is a recent addition to the PPF family of products. Ceramic Pro is a world’s leader in Nanoceramic coatings, which has introduced a special kind of Paint Protection Film. In addition to regular features of Paint Protection films, such as non-yellowing, reduced orange peel, and chemical and physical protection, Kavaca PPF has the following unique features.

Instant Self-Healing

Unlike any other film, Kavaca PPF features an instant self-healing top coat. You no longer need to apply heat in order to remove scratches. They disappear on their own. This unique feature of Kavaca definitely sets it apart from its competitors. So if you are looking for an instant self-healing effect, – Kavaca is your choice.

Ceramic Pro Coated

Another unique feature of Kavaca is its Ceramic Pro infused top coat. Kavaca comes with a factory applied layer of ceramic Pro Coating, which adds hydrophobic properties to the film. Hydrophobic properties make Kavaca very easy to clean, and prevent dirt and mud from sticking onto the surface. Consequently, your car stays clean for longer, which saves you time and money. The washing of a Kavaca wrapped car is also easier and quicker, because less dirt sticks to the surface.

Another benefit of an added layer of Ceramic Pro is its shine. Kavaca film makes your car look super shiny, and helps it to stay in a showroom like condition for longer!

In addition, Kavaca PPF comes with a protective layer which installers remove during installation. This protective layer helps protect the film from any installation related accidents, perfecting the final look.

Options:

For now Kavaca only comes in gloss finish, meaning you can’t use it for your matte vehicle if you want to keep the finish flat. So if you are looking to protect your matte vehicle, unfortunately Kavaca won’t work for you. However, Ceramic Pro announced that they are working on creating a matte version of Kavaca PPF, which is supposed to be released by the end of the year. So if you are looking for a Ceramic Pro coated PPF for your matte vehicle, you might have to wait just a little bit longer.Bentley bentayaga kavaca

Warranty

Ceramic Pro offers a 12 year manufacturing warranty for Kavaca PPF, which is a bit better than XPEL warranty.

Cutting Software

Unfortunately, at this moment there is no cutting software designed specifically for Kavaca film. Installers get a discounted access to a software called True Cut, which is used by another PPF manufacturer, Suntek. However, the library of patterns is limited, and some patterns are not available. In this case, installers typically free cut pieces, and use technique called “bulking”.

SunTek

Another manufacturer of protective films we are going to talk about today is SunTek. SunTek films contain a proprietary top-coat which protects the urethane against surface scratches. This film also possess self-healing qualities, and will self-heal when exposed to heat. Similarly to other paint protection films on the market, SunTek prevents yellowing of film, and minimizes orange peel.

Options:

When it comes to finishes, SunTek also offers you a variety of choices depending on a protection level and the look you are going for.

Paint Protection Film Clear

SunTek Paint Protection Film Clear is a nearly invisible paint protection film, featuring high shine finish. It protects the car from rock chips and light scratches, while adding shine to the look of your vehicle.

Paint Protection Film Matte

Matte Paint Protection Film has the same benefits of Clear PPF, but in a stylish matte look. This film can be applied to satin, matte or “frozen” finishes to protect them from damage of daily driving.

Paint Protection Film Ultra

This is a premium level PPF, which comes in both, gloss and matte finishes. One of its key differences is its HydroResist top coat layer, which increases stain resistance and limits water and dirt accumulation on the car surface.Superior protection with added hydrophobic features.

Cutting Software

SunTek provides installers with access to a TruCut cutting software and pattern library. However, having personally used it, we found that pattern options were a bit limited.

Warranty:

SunTek offers different types of warranties for different types of finishes. 10 years manufacturing warranty for the Ultra line, and 5 years manufacturing warranty for the Matte and Clear lines.

3M

You have probably heard of 3M Vinyl Wraps. However, the company also established great reputation in Paint Protection Film World as well.

Options

3M offers 3 categories of Paint Protection Films, depending on durability level.

3M Surface Protection Film

The most cost effective option out of the three, it is also the thinnest one. At only 6 mil thick, it is ideal for a variety of surfaces. However, we would’t recommend using it for the exterior due to its thinner complexion. It has a good scratch and stain resistance, however is the least durable out of the three. It is available in Gloss finish only.

Scotchguard Paint Protection Film 

Medium range film, Scotchguard PPF is extremely durable film applied to high impact areas. One of its key features is its clear coat with UV inhibitors, which helps maintain clarity.

Scotchguard Paint Protection Film Pro Series

The name speaks for itself. The Pro Series is the most advanced line of 3M Paint Protection Films. It features self-healing technology that makes most scratches to disappear. This film also comes in Matte and Gloss finishes, to allow for a wider range of applications.

Cutting Software

3M has their own pattern cutting software, which features an extensive portfolio of cutting patterns. One of the great things about this software is that your installer can create custom patterns with “design and edit” option. This function allows to modify patterns, and cut pieces for custom made body parts, as well as increase area of coverage.

Warranty

3M warranty covers manufacturing defects, however the warranty period varies based on the film series:

10 years for Scotchguard PPF Pro Series

7 years for Scotchguard PPF

5 years for Surface Protecton Film

So as you can see, it is hard to say exactly what brand of paint protection films is the best. There is a lot of factors to consider when picking the right film. All of the above films are relatively similar in terms of impact protection, so it does come down to special features each one has. We always recommend to talk to your installer and see what they recommend for your specific project.

Talk to us if you have any more questions in regards to the best brand of paint protection films for your project! We hope you enjoyed this blog post and found some new information!

Paint Protection Film

Paint Protection Film has become a popular solution for protecting vehicle exteriors from negative impact of daily driving. In this blog post we dive deeper into understanding what Paint Protection Film is, and if it’s worth getting.

What is Paint Protection Film:

Paint Protection Film (PPF), also known as Clear Bra, is an 8mil thick clear flexible film, made out of polyurethane. It comes with a specially formulated adhesive in the back, which safely adheres to the surface of your car. PPF can be applied on top of existing paint, or vinyl wrap to protect it from harsh driving conditions. Typically, Paint Protection Films posses heat activating self healing properties, meaning scratches heal on their own when some heat is applied.

One of the greatest features of paint protection film is that it saves you money when it comes to a panel repair. If something happens and your car gets scratched, you won’t need to replace the whole car part, or get it repainted. If your car is protected with PPF, a team of trained installers will simply remove the film, and get it replaced with a new piece. Typically, PPF withstands general damage occurring during daily driving.

Obviously, if your car got into a major accident, PPF won’t be able to protect the paint, since the impact is too strong.

Paint Protection Film

Key Features:

  • Self Healing – most scratches will disappear with heat
  • Explicit Texture – high gloss and matte finishes
  • Discolouration and Stain Resistance – film remains clear under the harshest conditions
  • Non yellowing – film will not yellow from UV exposure
  • Edge Seal Technology – film will not start lifting on edges
  • Mirror Smooth Finish – protection should be indistinguishable from factory paint
  • Durability – superior impact protection

Paint Protection Film Benefits:

  • Protection against rock chips, scuffs and scratches
  • Protection against stains, spills, bird droppings, and bug guts
  • Protecting from negative effects of UV light
  • Ease of repairability
  • Preserveness of resale value
  • Extensive product warranty

Installation Process

Installation process starts with an extensive wash and exterior detailing. It is important to make sure that the surface of the car is absolutely clean and free of dust particles. We use clay bar to ensure the surface of your vehicle is free of especially stubborn contaminants.

After that, installation begins. Paint Protection Film is installed using a wet installation method. First, the surface of the car is generously sprayed with installation gel or soap solution. After that, each piece of the material is also sprayed, and applied to the panel. The spray solution activates the adhesive, and allows for an easier movement and placement of the material.

Once all of the pieces are installed, the car is left inside for a 12 hour curing process, to ensure everything dries and the adhesive cures properly.Paint Protection Film Installation

Installation Methods:

There are two ways to install paint protection film.

Pre-cut (DAP)

Typically, Paint Protection film pieces are pre-cut on a plotter, using DAP software. Each piece is cut to specifically fit the part it is being applied to. DAP software features an extensive library of PPF templates made for every individual part of each vehicle. During this installation there is no trimming required, since pieces of the material fit each panel precisely.

Bulking

There is another method that installers sometimes use. It is called bulking. In case of bulking the film is applied directly to the car part, and it is then trimmed around the edges. Similar installation method is used in Vinyl Wraps. Bulking is normally used on areas that require more coverage, or when working with areas for which pre-cut option is not available, like custom body kits, for example.

Types of Paint Protection Films:

Paint Protection Films are designed be transparent to allow the original paint colour to show. However, a new series of coloured paint protection films has been launched recently. In this section we will talk about the most popular types of Paint Protection Films that currently exist on the market.

Gloss PPFgloss paint protection film

One of the most common used types of Paint Protection Film is a Gloss Finish Film. It is clear and transparent, and features high gloss finish. This type of film is normally applied to a gloss car.

Matte PPF (Stealth)matte paint protection

Matte finish PPF is another type of film. It is used on two occasions, – when the car is matte, and the owner is looking to protect it. Or when the car is gloss, but the owner wants to change the look as well as add protection. In case of matte PPF on a gloss car Partial PPF wrap is out of the question, since wrapped parts will look completely different from non wrapped.

Coloured PPF

You are no longer limited to transparent clear Paint Protection Films. Recently a series of coloured and textured Paint Protection Films was launched by a number of companies. PPF no longer serves a sole purpose of protecting your vehicle from damage. Coloured and textured films are doing it in a fashionable matter, by allowing you to customize the exterior of your vehicle while keeping it safe.

Application Areas:

Paint Protection Films can be applied on any exterior area of your car. Some interior applications are also available for an enhanced protection. One of the most popular areas of coverage is full front. It includes Front Bumper, Hood, Fenders and headlights. Since this area is getting the most amount of damage during driving, it is the first area you would want to protect.

Paint Protection Film Packages: 

We offer multiple packages to satisfy your needs. Below is a list of our most popular Paint Protection Film Packages

  • partial Hood
  • full front bumper
  • partial fenders

What package to choose:

Picking the right PPF package is an important decision, since it determines how much protection your car will get. Below we have outlined a a brief set of factors to consider that might help you pick the package that suits you best.

What type of driving do you normally do? Are you a highway driver? Do you tend to avoid overcrowded city areas? Do you have your own parking garage? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you can probably get away with Full Front Package. If you tend to avoid busy city streets, and don’t have to park very close to your neighbour on the parking lot, your risks of getting other parts of your car damaged are lower. Although we always recommend going for a full protection, full front package is a great alternative for those who avoid the majority of risks, and  want to save a bit of money.

Are you a city driver? Do you often park in tight shopping malls and grocery stores parking stalls? Are you often surrounded by people with shopping carts? In this case we would definitely recommend going for a full PPF wrap. Parking and driving in the city can cause lots of damage to your car, due to high traffic. Full PPF wrap will protect your car top to bottom, and keep it scratch and scuffs free.

Paint Protection Film Cost:

Depending on the package you choose, the size of your vehicle and the type of film, PPF packages on average can vary between 1500$ – 7000$. Let us help create a free estimate for your vehicle

Timeline:

PPF installation is typically taking more time than a vinyl wrap installation. Because liquid solutions are used during installation, we need some extra time to make sure everything is dried properly, and the film has fully cured. For that reason we typically budget about about 2 days for a partial PPF wrap, and 4-7 days for a full PPF wrap.

Materials We Use:

We work with world’s leaders in Paint Protection Film industry, such as XPEL and Kavaca,

XPEL

XPEL film is the world’s first self-healing Paint Protection Film. This film features an increased impact protection against rock chips, scratches and scuffs. It features a heat activating self healing top layer, which heals scratches when heat is applied. The film does not yellow with time and is stain resistant. XPEL films come in Gloss and Matte Finish to offer a protection option for any vehicle. In addition, XPEL offers a 10 year warranty for its products.

Kavaca

Paint Protection Film of new generation, Kavaca PPF comes with a factory added layer of Ceramic Pro coating, and has instant self-healing properties. Kavaca films do not need heat in order to heal scratches. They self heal on their own! A factory added layer of ceramic Pro helps add shine and eases mainatanace. Due to its hydrophobic properties, Ceramic Pro prevents dust and dirt from sticking onto the surface of the film. So in addition to scratch and scuffs protection, your vehicle is also getting protection from debris and rain! It also offers limited lifetime warranty.

Paint Protection Film vs Ceramic Pro Coating:

Paint Protection Film is often compared with Ceramic Pro Coating, however the two are quite different and serve different purposes. CeramicPro, while adding a minor level of protection to your vehicle’s paint, still isn’t able to protect it from rock chips and scratches. Paint Protection film on the other hand, is designed to provide your vehicle with this protection. Because of its thickness and composition, small rocks and other road debris are not able to break through the film.

So in summary, Ceramic Pro, while adding a little protection, is mostly used for the ease of maintenance and improved looks. Whereas PPF is used for protection.

If you are looking to get both, you could choose to get your vehicle wrapped with PPF, and coated with Ceramic Pro. Or you could choose to go with Kavaca PPF, which already has a layer of Ceramic Pro coating applied.ceramic pro

Paint Protection Film Limitations:

As good as Paint Protection film is, unfortunately it isn’t a perfect solution against any type of damage. Paint Protection Film has its limitations as well.

Paint Protection Film has a limit as to how much impact it can take. High impact collision will almost certainly damage and break the film. While you are safe from the majority of slow speed accidents, higher speed collisions or high impact can definitely cause film to fail.

Depending on the amount of coverage, installation may take from 2 to 5 days. This includes a 12 hour in-shop curing period.

Will PPF damage the paint after its removal?

OEM paint is completely safe and that is one of the reasons we use Xpel films. If removed within warranty period (10 years), PPF will leave minimal or none adhesive residue that can be easily cleaned off. If your car was previously repainted, there is a chance of paint damage. Unfortunately, there is no warranty for non-OEM paint jobs due to a massive quality variation in different paint shops.

Why should I get PPF?

Paint Protection Film will protect the surface of your car, and will keep it looking new for longer. If any damage occurs, instead of repainting your car you might only need to repair damaged PPF. Faster, cheaper, better.
