Matte paint on vehicles has become trendy in recent years. Many owners have their vehicles repainted with a matte finish in the aftermarket while some car and truck manufacturers offer it as original equipment. Either way, matte paint is an investment and requires more ongoing maintenance than standard high gloss paint. 3M’s satin matte paint protection film does for matte paint what 3M’s clear high gloss PPF does for regular paint – it protects it.

If your vehicle has standard high gloss paint and you’d like to change it to a matte look, 3M’s matte PPF can do just that. Install it on part (sideview mirrors, hood stripes, etc) or all of the car for that desired look while protecting the paint underneath.

3M holds the original patent to PPF, dating back to the 1960s.

PPF Matte Product Highlights


  • Matte Satin Finish

    Leaves the matte finish of your vehicle’s paint unchanged. And you can treat 3M PPF just like standard paint. It can be washed, waxed, and topped with a ceramic coating.

  • The Original

    3M Company holds the original patent to paint protection film, first producing it for the US military.

  • 8 mils (.008”) thick

    Other manufacturers advertise 8 mil thick films but fall short when measured with a micrometer. Those thinner films offer less protection than 3M’s slightly thicker film. Watch the video demonstration.

  • 10 Year Nationwide Warranty

    Manufacturer’s warranty is backed by a 112-year-old company that is also the original patent holder of PPF.

  • Self-Healing

    Unlike your car’s paint, light scratches to the film easily disappear in warmer temperatures or with some applied heat.

  • Hydrophobic & Stain-Resistant

    Film repels water, making it less likely its clear coat will stain or get water spots.

  • Non-Yellowing

    Today’s films do not yellow like they did in the past. 3M warranties that its films will not yellow.

  • Listed on Carfax

    3M PPF installed by a 3M-certified installer will appear on your vehicle’s Carfax report once you register your product warranty.
