PPF is a self-healing transparent film made of polyurethane material that is applied to the surface of a vehicle’s paint to protect it from damage caused by various environmental factors, such as stones, debris, bird droppings, and UV rays. It is available in clear or matte finishes.
The durability of PPF varies depending on the quality of the film and the level of protection it provides. Generally, high-quality PPF can last up to 10 years or more with proper care and maintenance.
Yes, PPF can be removed without damaging the vehicle’s paint, but it requires the use of special tools and techniques. A professional installer can safely remove the film and restore the original appearance of the paint.
PPF is designed to be transparent and virtually invisible, so it should not significantly alter the appearance of your vehicle (unless you specifically choose a different finish such as our matte range for example). However, some lower-quality films may have a slight yellowing effect over time, which can affect the clarity of the paint.
The cost of PPF installation varies depending on several factors, such as the size and type of the vehicle, the quality of the film, and the complexity of the installation process. On average, PPF installation can cost anywhere from £500 to £2800, but it can save you money in the long run by protecting your vehicle’s paint from costly damage.
The installation time for Paint Protection Film (PPF) depends on several factors, such as the size and type of the vehicle, the complexity of the installation process, and the experience of the installer. Generally, PPF installation can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day or more.
For a basic installation on a small to medium-sized vehicle, such as a saloon or hatchback, the process can take around 4 to 6 hours. However, for larger vehicles or those with more complex body shapes, such as 4×4’s or sports cars, the installation may take longer.
It’s worth noting that the installation time also depends on the level of coverage you choose. If you opt for a full-body PPF installation, it will take longer than a partial installation that covers only certain areas of the vehicle.

We can offer both collection of your vehicle in a covered trailer or a courtesy car. Both services are offered at a supplement cost to your PPF installation and will be quoted for on a per job basis.

A Paint Protection System is a type of self-healing coating or film we apply to a vehicle’s body to protect it from damage caused by external factors such as UV rays, debris, dirt, and other environmental contaminants. Think of it as invisible protection that goes beyond so-called ceramic coatings.
The most common type of Paint Protection System is a clear or coloured (black) film made of thermoplastic urethane applied to the vehicle. The film creates a barrier protecting the car’s paint from scratches, chips, and other damage caused by road debris, weather conditions, and other external factors.
The main goal of PPF for the car is to prolong its appearance. Protecting the car’s exterior surfaces also helps to maintain its resale value. This means you can expect to get the best possible price when it comes time to part with it.
At Unit-11, we use the very best PPF for cars, often ones that aren’t just durable and offer superb clarity. So, whether you look at it in the bright sunlight or at a certain angle, it does not appear as a layer on top of the paint job. Plus, it means your vehicle shines for years.
Apart from protecting the vehicle, if any panel needs to be replaced, this can be done within a few hours as the optically clear material is easy to remove. This is less time-consuming and cheaper than if that same panel needed to be painted. This is what makes PPF a cost and time-effective way of protecting your asset.
The versatility of paint protection film means we can customise it to your needs. To do this, we offer two distinct packages.
Our full package offers comprehensive protection to all external painted and carbon lacquered areas of your vehicle. The package provides peace of mind knowing that your whole car is protected.
The self-healing topcoat is designed to prevent swirl marks and light surface scratches from appearing on any part of your car, ensuring you continue to enjoy the vehicle’s pristine finish for several years. You no longer have to worry about rain, snow, sand, stones, or sleet damaging the look of your vehicle.
It is the ideal solution for car owners who expect complete coverage and protection. It includes protection for doors and rear quarter panels, areas that are particularly prone to damage from other motorists opening their doors or from scratches caused by passers-by. You can rest assured that your car’s paintwork will remain unblemished no matter where you go or how often you drive. In essence, it’s like driving your new car for longer than you might have thought possible.
This protects areas most vulnerable to surface damage, often prone to stone chipping and pitting. Usually, this is the area on the front of the car. Thus it also happens to be a popular package.
Generally, the Essential package covers the bonnet, front wings, wing mirrors, and headlights. This is the perfect solution for any vehicle owner who wants basic level protection to prevent stone chips from hitting and damaging these vulnerable areas.
This, as the term suggests, protects the front of the vehicle. This is an excellent option for people worried more about the front end of their vehicle taking a beating, especially if they do lots of motorway driving.
Your vehicle is an investment, and a PPF for your car can help protect it in the best possible way. A high-quality PPF, like the type we offer, protects your vehicle from the elements so that you can continue enjoying it as you did from day 1.
