How does PPF self heal? PPF, also known as clear bra, is a clear, thin film that is applied to the surface of a vehicle to protect it from scratches and other types of damage. The film is made from a thermoplastic urethane (TPU) material that is designed to be highly durable and flexible. One of the key features of PPF is its ability to self-heal.

This self-healing ability is due to the properties of the TPU material used in the film. When the film is scratched or damaged, the heat from the sun or the heat generated by the friction of rubbing the film with your finger causes the TPU to soften and the scratch to disappear. The film is able to reform itself to its original shape, thereby hiding the scratch.

This feature is extremely important when it comes to quality protection since the film will take a beating from the day-to-day environmental debris like rocks, salt, scratching and more. Some other great benefits from self-healing PPF are the following:

Protection from scratches and chips: The film acts as a barrier between the paint on your vehicle and the environment, protecting it from scratches, chips, and other types of damage caused by rocks, gravel, and other road debris.

Protection from UV rays: The film also provides protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which can cause fading and discoloration of your vehicle’s paint over time.

Easy maintenance: The film is easy to clean and maintain, and can be wiped down with a microfiber cloth and a mild detergent.

No effect on the car’s appearance: The film is clear, so it does not affect the appearance of your vehicle.

High Durability: The film is very strong and can withstand extreme temperatures, so it is perfect for protecting your vehicle from damage caused by the sun, rain, and even hail.
