All myths cleared :-
PPF is a thin (yet very tough) layer of high-quality film (TPU - Thermoplastic Polyurethane) that’s placed on the car’s surface to protect its paint from rocks and road debris. This highly stretchable thermoplastic urethane film is also resistant to UV exposure, chemical stains, mineral deposits, and other environment factors.
While it is recommended to perform a full-body PPF installation, if you’re looking for protection with a lower investment, you can install the protective film on just the front part, which usually absorbs 75% of dents and scratches.
When properly maintained, it can last well over 10 years. To maximize the durability of the PPF, avoid using car care products that contain Petroleum or Solvents, as these substances will damage the top “self-healing” layer that returns PPF to its original shape after being hit by flying debris from the road. Invest in good quality product with 8+ mil thickness, 7-10 years warranty /life. One can also opt for Ceramic Coating for PPF over PPF application for longer life.
Once you have paint protection film installed, it is recommended that you wait as least five days before your first car wash. This allows the film to cure and fully adhere to your vehicle’s surface. Avoid using car care products that contain abrasives or resin, as they will damage the top surface of the film. Also, ensure you only use PH neutral products and natural waxes for polishing.
Yes, paint protection film is removable. There is a special technique to remove the film, which requires warming it up first and then pulling it off at a 90-degree angle. However, it is highly recommended to perform the removal at a certified shop, where you can get the car detailed to remove any small leftovers properly.

If you are looking to protect the exterior of your car, then you have two top options: paint protection film and ceramic coating. However, which one of these options is best for your vehicle ? Here, we will take a look at both paint protection film and ceramic coating. We’ll discuss about the similarities, differences between PPF and Ceramic coating, and benefits of each in detail.
Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a process where a transparent, urethane material is placed over the exterior of a vehicle. The paint protection film preserves the quality of the vehicle’s paint job and protects it from damage.
A paint protection film is designed for high impact resistance, so it can take on bushes, branches, rocks, and road debris with relative ease and leave your car or SUV looking no worse for the wear afterward.
It can also protect your vehicle from chemical damage caused by bird droppings, mineral deposits, and insects, so you won’t have to break out the hose and sponge multiple times a week to keep your paint job looking great.
Ceramic coating is a process where the prepared vehicle surface is coated in a liquid polymer. The polymer chemically bonds with the paint, which makes it harder for contaminants to stick onto and effect the paint, thus acting as a sealant giving the paint surface protection and added shine.
Ceramic coating can help defend your vehicle’s exterior from UV rays and the resulting oxidation threatening its beautiful appearance. The added protective layer can also safeguard your car or SUV from chemical damage caused by things like bird droppings and mineral deposits.
Both paint protection film and ceramic coating offer many of the features that make it great for the exterior of your vehicle. Here are some of the top similarities:
As we’ve already mentioned, the similarities between paint protection film and ceramic coatings end in the fact that they are both intended to protect your vehicle’s appearance. The differences are wider and quite a bit more varied than that.
PROTECTION : For one, a paint protection film’s primary draw is that it protects your car from chips, scuffs, swirl marks and scratches. Ceramic coating cannot do that; the added liquid polymer layer will not defend your vehicle from road debris and rocks while driving.
SELF HEALING : Modern PPF’s have self healing properties, minor scratches and marks on the film surface would self heal on application of heat or when exposed to sun which is not the case at all with Ceramic coating.
SHINE & SHEEN : Another difference between the two is the fact that ceramic coatings provide a glossy sheen and offer water repellent properties. Paint protection film can come with a lustrous sheen, but it is generally made clear and has no effect on your vehicle’s finish, nor is it able to repel water. However hih quality PPF of today like EVO PROTECT+, now offers 40% additional gloss to car surface and comes with Hydrophobic coating which repels water as with Ceramic
CLEANING : Finally, ceramic coatings make your vehicle a lot easier to clean. The water repellent qualities keep debris, grime, and dirt from clinging to your car’s exterior. A normal paint protection film cannot repel water; therefore, cleaning it is just the same as cleaning an altogether unprotected vehicle. However as stated above, new gen PPF like EVO PROTECT+ have excellent Hydrophobic properties, aesthetics and features making maintenance very easy.
MATERIAL : With PPF you are applying film over the paint surface and does not bond with the paint surface as in Ceramic. Paint surface is not affected and PPF can be easily removed without leaving any glue marks (in Evo PROTECT PPF)
It’s a matter of personal choice what is going to be best for your car..Ask yourself what exactly you’re looking to protect your car from ?
If its swirl marks, scratches, stone chips, debris, bugs and comprehensive protection from day to day wear tear on paint, then it has to be PPF. If it’s only the car aesthetic enhancement and minor protection from scratches specially in a used car consider a ceramic coat.
At times budget is a constraint, you can consider sealing the car’s paint with a ceramic coat after detailing to get a shiny car always with some bit of protection.
For a new car or for someone for whom cars are a passion and you want to retain its originality, EVO PROTECT+ should be your ultimate choice – as it’s a PPF with maximum protection and also comes with a FREE ADDON of Ceramic coating on TOP for that ultimate look & long term protection – so you have best of both worlds.
