Self-Healing Technology




What is Paint Protection Film?

Paint Protection Film (PPF) stands as the ultimate shield for preserving your vehicle’s pristine paintwork. Crafted from polyurethane or urethane film, this resilient and transparent layer is strategically applied to your car’s paint and high-impact areas. It serves as a robust defence against scratches, swirl marks, stone chips, abrasions, UV degradation, chemicals, harsh weather, and everyday wear and tear.

PPF, also known as clear bra, clear film, car film, or paint film, traces its origins to military usage, initially safeguarding helicopter rotary blades from shrapnel during the Vietnam War.

Today, it’s widely embraced in the automotive industry to safeguard both new and pre-owned vehicles. Its versatile applications extend beyond cars to motorcycles, caravans, mobile homes and more.

Drove from Aberdeen to Livingston based on a recommendation. So glad I did, because Ross transformed my car (2018 BMW) with a superb two stage correction with a 5 year ceramic coating. Impressive results by Ross, who takes the time to ensure the car is expertly restored to its former glory, in fact probably better than it came out of the factory. Cannot recommend highly enough. Also even with fuel cost and other expenses taken into account was far cheaper than anything offered in Aberdeen. Visit Machine Polishing Central Scotland, you won’t regret it!

I got my 3 year old Tesla Model 3 treated with a paint restoration and ceramic coating (2 year) at a great price and I could not be happier with the results! My car looks brand new again! Thank you Machine Polishing Central Scotland team! Highly recommend!!!

We had 5 of our new chauffeur cars ceramic coated by Ross and his team and they all turned out amazing. They were completed perfectly and on time. After care was provided and they gave us all the knowledge on how to keep them looking clean. I couldn't recommend them enough.

Highly recommend Ross. High quality work and at reasonable cost. Was a bit unsure as mine was already a brand new car, but needed some protection from the minor day-to-day wear. The look after the work was awesome even for a new BMW.

I have used this company for a couple of years now when Ross started off doing Machine polishing on a mobile only Basis. Ross really knows his stuff and does a great job Hence why he is clearly the market leader (in Scotland at least) My last car was Polished twice and had two different Ceramic coatings applied. I was so Impressed I just had my new car given a 7 year Ceramic coating and Polish and will be using the after care service to maintain the beautiful finish my car now has.

Paint Protection Film FAQs

Read frequently asked questions regarding Paint Protection Film (PPF) near Edinburgh. If you have any further questions regarding PPF and wish to speak to our expert team, please call us on 01506 365059.

What is Paint Protection Film (PPF)?

Paint Protection Film, also known as PPF, is a clear, durable film applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect the paint from scratches, chips, stains, and other forms of damage. It acts as a shield against road debris, UV exposure, and environmental pollutants.

Why should I choose Machine Polishing - Central Scotland for PPF installation?

Machine Polishing – Central Scotland specialises in vehicle detailing and protection with years of experience in the industry. We use high-quality, durable Paint Protection Films and our installers are professionally trained in the latest application techniques to ensure a seamless and high-quality finish.

What part of my vehicle should I have PPF applied to?

Most customers choose to protect high-impact areas such as the front bumper, bonnet, side-skirts, mirrors, and rear wheel arches. However, PPF can be applied to any exterior painted surface of your vehicle. We offer Front End, Track Pack and Full Car PPF packages, depending on your style and budget.

How long does Paint Protection Film last?

The lifespan of PPF depends on various factors, including the film quality, the environment, and how the vehicle is maintained. We only use industry-grade films, which come with a manufacturer’s warranty of up to ten years.

Does the PPF alter the appearance of my vehicle?

Our clear PPF option is virtually invisible and does not alter the colour or design elements of your vehicle. It provides a glossy, transparent barrier that enhances the underlying paint’s brilliance while protecting it from damage. We do, however, offer Matte / Satin and Colour Shift PPF options, which alter the colour and appearance of your vehicle’s paintwork.

How do I maintain my vehicle after PPF installation?

PPF is easy to maintain and makes washing your vehicle much easier. However, we recommend using non-abrasive products and avoiding high-pressure washes directly at the film’s edges to ensure longevity.

Can Paint Protection Film be removed?

Yes, PPF can be safely removed by our professional installers without damaging your vehicle’s paintwork.

How much do our PPF packages cost near Edinburgh?

The cost varies depending on the vehicle size, the areas you choose to protect, and the type of film used. We provide a free and detailed quote tailored to your specific vehicle and protection needs. The three packages we offer are as follows:


  • Front End PPF, starting from £1500
  • Track Pack PPF, starting from £2200
  • Full Car PPF, starting from £3500

How do I schedule a slot for PPF installation?
