Paint Protection Film (PPF)

Maxpro’s Max Armor PPF was designed to protect vehicles from damage with its defense against rocks, sand and salt, insects and other hazards.

Rock Chip Protection from Owner’s Pride
Owner’s Pride’s mission is to never stop innovating its ceramic protection products, according to the company. This has led to the creation of Owner’s Pride PPF Ceramic. It’s commonly accepted that PPF is a great first line of defense when guarding paint against unsightly chips. However, road debris can still penetrate PPF and cause damage. The product comes with a warranty that—in the event road debris penetrates the newly installed PPF and causes
damage to the paint of the protected surface— will pay to repair the damage as well as the reapplication of the PPF film on the affected surface.

A New PPF from IVIOS
Global film brand Ivios announced the launch of Kaizer Z12 PPF, a new product offering protective function and durability.
Ivios’ Kaizer Z12 Paint Protection Film is a 12-mil thick product. It provides an upgraded protective function with improved elasticity. This is a PPF created by applying the Systematic Design of Cross-linked Polymer Technology, a unique top-coating technology independently developed by Ivios’ Coating and Material Science Laboratory, according to the company.
The Systematic Design of Cross-linked Polymer Technology prevents the surface of a PPF product from being contaminated by pollutants in various environments, helping the product maintain its exterior condition longer. Kaizer Z12 provides stain resistance, non-yellowing, solvent resistance and durability along with strong protection, making it ideal for high-end cars and sports cars, as well as off-road vehicles exposed to rough road conditions and environments.
