After the warranty period for TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) PPF (Paint Protection Film) is completed, the film will still remain on the surface it was applied to. However, the level of protection it provides may decrease over time.
TPU PPFs are known for their durability and can last for many years beyond their warranty period. However, over time, the film may start to show signs of wear and tear, such as discoloration, hazing, or peeling in some areas. The level of protection offered by the TPU PPF may also decrease as it becomes less resistant to scratches, chips, and other forms of damage.
To ensure continued protection of the surface, it is recommended to replace the TPU PPF after its warranty period is completed. However, regular maintenance and care of the PPF can help extend its lifespan and preserve its protective properties.
It is also important to note that the effectiveness of the TPU PPF may depend on several factors, such as the quality of the film, the surface it was applied to, and the conditions it was exposed to. Therefore, it is recommended to consult with a installer to determine the best course of action after the warranty period for your TPU PPF is completed.

It is possible for some paint to come off while removing PPF (Paint Protection Film) from car paint, but this largely depends on the quality of the Paint  and the installation process.

If the PPF was installed properly and the car paint was in good condition when the film was applied, the chances of paint coming off during removal are minimal. However, if the PPF was poorly installed or the car paint had pre-existing damage, the risk of paint coming off during removal is higher.

To minimize the risk of paint damage during PPF removal, it is important to seek the help of a professional installer. Professional installers have the expertise and tools necessary to remove the PPF safely without causing damage to the car paint. They can also assess the condition of the car paint before removing the PPF and take necessary precautions to prevent any damage.

Discoloration of PPF (Paint Protection Film) is usually covered under warranty, but it depends on the type and severity of the discoloration.

We offer warranties against discoloration caused by defects in materials or workmanship. However, if the discoloration is due to external factors such as exposure to UV radiation, improper cleaning, or environmental pollutants, it may not be covered under the warranty.

To ensure that any discoloration is covered under warranty, it is important to follow the  recommended care and maintenance instructions. This includes using approved cleaning products and avoiding exposure to harsh environmental conditions.

If you notice any discoloration on your PPF, you should contact the installer as soon as possible to initiate the warranty claim process. They will evaluate the discoloration and determine if it is covered under the warranty.

Be sure to read and understand the warranty terms and conditions before purchasing and installing PPF

Maintaining your PPF (Paint Protection Film) is important to ensure its longevity and effectiveness in protecting your vehicle’s paint. Here are some maintenance tips to follow after installation:

  1. Avoid washing your car for at least 24-48 hours after PPF installation. This will allow the film to fully adhere to the surface.
  2. Use only manufacturer-approved cleaning products for your PPF. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the film.
  3. Wash your car regularly to remove dirt and debris that can accumulate on the film. Use a microfiber cloth or sponge and a gentle car shampoo.
  4. Dry the film with a soft microfiber towel after washing to prevent water spots.
  5. Avoid parking your car under direct sunlight for extended periods of time. PPF can degrade over time when exposed to UV rays.
  6. If you notice any damage or scratches on the film, address them immediately to prevent further damage.
  7. Have your PPF inspected annually by installer to ensure it is still in good condition and providing adequate protection.

By following these maintenance tips, you can ensure that your PPF will provide long-lasting protection for your vehicle’s paint.

The differences between different variants of PPF (Paint Protection Film) mainly lie in the material grade of TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane), the material used for the top coat, the adhesive used, and its characteristics, hydrophobic coat, and non-yellowing nature. Let’s discuss each of these in detail:

  1. Material Grade of TPU: PPF comes in various grades of TPU material. The higher the grade of TPU, the better the quality of the PPF. A higher grade of TPU offers better protection against abrasion, impact, and UV rays. It is also more durable and long-lasting.
  2. Material Used for Top Coat: The top coat of PPF is responsible for providing a high gloss and clear finish to the film. Different variants of PPF use different types of materials for the top coat. Some use polyurethane, while others use silicone or acrylic. The type of top coat used can affect the durability and performance of the PPF.
  3. Adhesive Used and Its Characteristics: The adhesive used in PPF can be solvent-based or acrylic-based. Solvent-based adhesives offer better initial tack, while acrylic-based adhesives are more stable over time. The choice of adhesive can also affect the ease of installation and the durability of the PPF.
  4. Hydrophobic Coat: Some variants of PPF come with a hydrophobic coat that repels water, dust, and other debris. This helps to keep the surface clean and reduces the need for frequent cleaning.
  5. Non-Yellowing Nature: PPF that does not yellow over time is considered to be of better quality. The top coat and adhesive used in the film can affect its yellowing tendency.

PPF is a clear, thermoplastic film that is applied to the surface of a vehicle to protect its paint from scratches, chips, and other forms of damage.

PPF can last up to 10 years or more, depending on the quality of the film and how well it is maintained.

Yes, PPF can be easily removed without damaging the vehicle’s paint. However, it is recommended to have it removed by a professional installer to ensure that it is done correctly.
