Paint protection film, also known as PPF or clear bra is a transparent multilayered urethane film designed to provide the best real world protection from damaging impacts like rock chips, parking lot dings, and scratches. The film provides a 7-10 mil thick barrier and features a self-healing top layer. When installed professionally it will look just like the paint but more glossy. Scrubs car detailing only applies top-tier Paint protection film that has a life expectancy of 7-10 years.
PPF offers the best possible protection while still looking great. Ceramic coatings may offer a more seamless appearance but paint protection film protects from physical impacts from stone and rock chips, actual scratches, all while self healing. People that plan on doing touring or lots of highway driving will easily see the benefits of protecting the paint and avoid expensive panel shops repainting. Being a replaceable part means it’s a sacrificial barrier that can be removed and replaced without the issues of trying to match factory paint.
Glad you asked! The premium paint protection film packages installed here at Scrubs car detailing are the best available.

Our in-house computer cut templates offer a great finish as our films are optically clear, it’s hard to see the edges. Our PPF installers are the industry best and can customise your PPF package, in our consultation.
Most of the current generation protection films offer a 7 to 10 year manufacturer warranty. These warranties cover the customer from product defects such as yellowing, fading, cracking, or bubbling. The film is a multi layered urethane, and due to its pliable nature, it is not uncommon for lower panels like front bumpers to take some abuse over time. Wear and tear usage is not warrantied, and generally will require a replacement piece of film in 3-5 years or with heavy use. The idea here is to let the film take any damage, thereby maintaining the integrity of your factory paint.
Because modern paint protection films are soft and pliable for their impact absorbing abilities they still need regular cleaning to avoid mineral build up etching. Our top tier films have a factory applied hydrophobic coating to make cleaning and maintenance easier. Over time the top coating will deteriorate before the film’s full life expectancy so applying PPF suitable coatings like CarPro skin can help maintain the water beading and ease of cleaning. It’s still important to clean and maintain the film to ensure that high gloss appearance. Remember that any deeper damage or etching is only in the film and your paint underneath is protected, and the PPF has done its job.
Depending on the film you use, our recommendation will change. Ceramic coatings that are designed specifically for PPF are different chemically then traditional paint ceramic coatings. The chemistry is focused on UVA and UVB blockers to enhance the UV protection. The coatings are made to bond to PPF and not paint and are aimed at providing a different type of protection where PPF generally has weakness. PPF is a thick durable film but can become grippy and susceptible to mineral and bug etchings. Applying a PPF coating like CarPro skin will not only protect from UV it will make the PPF feel slicker and resist dust settling. We can discuss if your chosen PPF will benefit from a top coating.
