5 Best Paint Protection Film Brands

So, you want to protect your car from the elements, but don’t know which PPF to choose? Well, you’re in luck! Today, we’ll be exploring the 5 Best Paint Protection Film Brands on the market!

1. XPEL ULTIMATE ( Our favourite)

XPEL by far produces the best film on the market. It will protect your paintwork from stone chips, scratches and scuffs and more. It is also self healing and comes with a 10 year warranty against yellowing and peeling.

The gloss film will enhance the shine of your paintwork as well as protecting it. Ceramic coatings can be applied on top to add an extra layer of protection, meaning you’re free to drive as fast as you want, wherever you want,


XPEL’s Satin PPF is next. The film leaves finish that would cost £1000s more to spray on with satin paint. As well as all the features of the gloss version of the film, the satin finish will transform the look of your car!

XPEL’s satin finish looks just as good as paint and looks much better than satin vinyls. Plus, ceramic coatings will not effect the satin finish – only protect it.

3. Suntek

We also use Suntek! This film is slightly thinner than XPEL, meaning it does not provide the same level of protection, however it does provide a glossier finish, which some customers find more desirable. The film is a bit harder than XPEL, so it is more likely to peel due to its more robust pre-installed nature.

4. Llumar

Llumar is another brand that GVE use. The film has hydrophobic properties, meaning it is water repellent, however the film does not heal as fast as XPEL and the warranty isn’t as long.

5. 3M

3M Films are amongst the cheapest on the market. While they do have protective properties, their quality of film does not match the level of the 3 smaller companies listed above. The warranty period is also 3 years less than what XPEL offers – whilst this is still good, it clearly shows that XPEL have more confidence behind their brand and product.
