Paint Protection Films (PPF) by WRAPvehicles in Manchester and Cheshire
At WRAPvehicles, we offer a range of paint protection films (PPF) designed to protect your vehicle’s paintwork from stone chips, scratches, UV rays, and more. Our invisible PPF options are ideal for high-end cars and classic models, providing a quality service that guarantees long-lasting protection for your vehicle.
We only use paint protection films from the industry’s top manufacturers, such as 3M, Ventureshield, Xpel, Bodyfence and Suntek. By selecting PPF from their premium ranges, we ensure a high-quality service with no compromise on protection.
Optically Clear and Durable
Our PPF is made of optically clear materials that adhere firmly to your vehicle’s factory paintwork. It won’t yellow over time and is installed by skilled professionals to avoid peeling or shrinking issues.
Some of our PPF options offer special features like self-healing properties and extra protective top coats. Self-healing films can remove minor scratches and scuffs with hot water or a hot air gun. Films with an extra protective top coat provide an additional layer of defence against corrosive agents, like paint thinner and bird droppings.
Ultimate Paintwork Protection
PPF shields your vehicle’s paintwork from stone chips, scratches, and other damages commonly caused by daily driving. As modern water-based vehicle paints offer less protection, PPF becomes crucial in safeguarding your vehicle’s appearance and avoiding costly paint repairs.
Tailored to High-End Vehicles
Our top-spec PPF is best suited for higher-end vehicle makes, models, and classic cars. It’s a wise investment, considering the potential costs of repainting these luxury vehicles compared to fitting PPF.
Preserving Warranty and Value
Many high-end vehicle manufacturers, such as Mercedes and Ferrari, approve the use of PPF. Opting for professionally fitted PPF helps maintain your vehicle’s warranty and can give an almost invisible effect.
Precise Custom Cut Templates
We offer custom-cut template options for most high-end vehicles, ensuring a perfect fit and finish every time. Pre-cut panels minimise or eliminate the need for cutting on the vehicle’s paintwork, providing peace of mind for the owner.
Full or Partial Kits
Our PPF services range from partial kits to full vehicle coverage, allowing you to choose the level of protection that suits your needs. It’s especially beneficial for high-performance vehicles driven regularly at high speeds or used for track days.

Key Features of Our PPF
Car paint protection film, also known as PPF, serves as a transparent, thermoplastic urethane film applied to the exterior surface of a vehicle. Its primary function is safeguarding the car’s paintwork from scratches, stone chips, road debris, and other environmental damages.
Operating as a durable barrier, the paint protection film forms a shield between the car’s paint and external elements. Thanks to its self-healing properties, minor scratches and swirl marks gradually disappear over time, preserving the vehicle’s paint in impeccable condition. Additionally, it effectively absorbs the impact of small objects, preventing direct damage to the paintwork.
Paint protection film stands apart from wax or ceramic coatings. Although wax and ceramic coatings offer some level of protection against light scratches and contaminants, they lack the high impact resistance that PPF provides. Consequently, paint protection film becomes an ideal choice for safeguarding against stone chips and more substantial abrasions.
The lifespan of paint protection film can vary depending on the quality of the film and its manufacturer. In general, high-quality PPF can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years, or even longer with proper maintenance. Factors such as environmental conditions, driving habits, and maintenance practices can influence its longevity.
Yes, paint protection film can be safely removed without causing harm to the vehicle’s paintwork. Professional installers possess the necessary skills to remove the film using heat and specialized tools. It is essential to have the PPF removed by a qualified technician to avoid potential issues.
When expertly applied, paint protection film remains virtually invisible, preserving the original appearance of your car’s paintwork. It should not alter the color or finish of the vehicle and will remain inconspicuous to the naked eye.
Absolutely, you can wash your car with PPF just as you would with any other vehicle. However, it is recommended to use a gentle, non-abrasive car wash solution and avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning tools to ensure the longevity of the film.
Although some DIY paint protection film kits are available, professional installation is highly recommended for achieving optimal results. Proper installation demands specific tools, expertise, and a dust-free environment to ensure a seamless application. Professional installers are trained to handle the film correctly, guaranteeing the best protection and appearance for your vehicle.
