3M Paint Protection Film

Invisible Protection to Keep Your Vehicle Looking Like New

Installed on new and used vehicles, 3M Paint Protection Film, also known as “clear bra,” is a nearly invisible film that is applied to the painted surfaces of your car (hood, fenders, bumpers, mirrors, etc.) to protect them from road debris such as rocks, bugs, salt, etc.
Made of a 6 mil (.006”) thick clear urethane plastic (8 mil when you count the adhesive), 3M Paint Protection Film was initially designed to protect helicopter blades from debris during the Vietnam War. Since then it has been used by various automobile manufacturers, NASCAR teams, and automotive enthusiasts to protect painted surfaces from road hash. Maintain appearance and enhance trade-in value by protecting your car’s paint with 3M Paint Protection Film. Watch the video demonstration below to see how PPF works.
