What is Paint Protection Film?

Simply, Paint Protection Film or PPF is like a screen protector – for your car!

PPF is made of super tough urethane or polyurethane film and most commonly used to protect a vehicle’s paintwork. Newer films have been developed for glass, windscreens, infotainment screens and interior surfaces – giving you all round protection.

The thickness of PPF varies between manufacturers but is typically between 7 and 10 mils thick. 

For perspective, the clear coat layer of paint on a brand-new car is approximately 6-7 mils thick, and a piece of newspaper is roughly 3 mils thick. As a general rule, the thicker the PPF is, the better protection it provides.

  • Paintwork is protected by 7-10 mil thick film, which greatly reduces the risk of damage and helps you avoid costly repairs and resprays
  • Most Paint Protection Film available in the UK today has a self-healing top layer which means that scratches and swirl marks disappear. Some self healing PPF is heat activated while others self heal in ambient temperature.
  • PPF is a protective product first and foremost but new developments in PPF have introduced “fashion films” which include matte PPF, metallic PPF, chrome PPF and colour changing PPF which means you get all the protective benefits of PPF plus an exciting visual upgrade for your car.
  • Protection against chips, scratches, key marks, swirl marks and more
  • Self healing top layer
  • 7-10 mils thick 
  • High gloss finish
  • Anti-yellowing
  • Hydrophobic 
  • Stain resistant
  • Up to 10 years durability (depending on PPF manufacturer & product)
  • Installed by trained & experienced PPF installers

Paint Protection Film (PPF) is the premium option when it comes to protecting your pride and joy, with good reason. 


  • Paint Protection Film is the most expensive paint protection product on the market
  • It takes years of practice to develop the skills required to install PPF
  • Due to the high costs mistakes can be costly
  • A plotter is required to pre-cut kits, these specialist pieces of technology cost thousands of pounds to buy
  • Pattern database software is required to pre-cut pattern kits for your car – this software comes with a high price tag, and is not widely available. 


That’s without mentioning insurance costs, for installing PPF on high value cars. 

Those are a few of the reasons that PPF is a premium priced paint protection option. 

A front end PPF kit installation costs £2000 at MPCS.

A front end PPF kit installation costs £4000 at MPCS.

We recommend 2-3 days for a front end paint protection kit and 4-5 days for full car paint protection. 

These timelines can vary based on the size of the vehicle, shape and complexity.
