Greetings;

 

Our paint protection film business activity began in 2007 and since then we have used various suppliers. As installers, we are very often asked by other installers – “What type of film do you prefer in your work and what kind of film can you recommend to us?”.

 

To determine what type of film is best suited for our work we decided to create a few topics, each of them accompanied by a small test. The reason why we posted these topics is because Internet has no reliable and independent information regarding these topics. We say the information is independent, because we didn’t give any preference to one or another manufacturer, and we are not an official representative, distributor or dealer of any manufacturer. We are installers, similar to many others. We have no specialized or precision laboratory-scale equipment and in our tests we are using locally available material. That’s why, please, do not pass judgment on us.

 

In the first test, from the array of manufacturers we picked the paint protection film market leaders and made a few measurements: the thickness of the in-situ urethane paint protection film; thickness of the urethane paint protection film with glue lay and thickness of the whole product with underlay. Now we will measure film durability. Analogous to the previous tests, for this test we used the same 19 samples:

 

1. 3М VentureShield

2. Avery Dennison Nano Fusion

3. KPMF PPF 82205-UV

4. Orafol Oraguard 280

5. Xpel Xtreme

6. Xpel Ultimate

7. VentureShield 2007 YOM

8. Suntek PPF TC

9. Orafol Oraguard 283

10. KPMF PPF 82200

11. Hexis CarPro 150

12. Sharpline DuraShield+

13. Premium Shield SPF Elite

14. Hexis CarPro 300

15. ISEE2 Total Protect PU 250

16. Premium Shield SPF

17. VITO Irmen SPT 1365

18. VITO Irmen SPT 1164

19. VITO Irmen SPT 1265

 

All samples were glued to a painted metal sheet with 1.2 mm thickness. For comparison, the thickness of sheet metal used in automobile bodies is normally 0.6-0.8 mm.

 

In order to measure film durability we used a spring powered single-shot shotgun (IZH-53M model) with a grooved steel barrel. This shotgun is for practice shooting and uses 4.5 mm gauge lead bullets.

IZH-53M specifications:

 

Weight, kg: 1.2 kg

Length, mm: 407 mm

Barrel length, mm: 215 mm

Width, mm: 50 mm

Height, mm: 175 mm

Gauge, mm: 4,5 mm

Muzzle velocity, m/sec: 110

Accuracy range, m: 10 m

Extreme range, m: 100 m

According to the statistics, not every polyurethane can cope with protecting the paint cover. Moreover, that does not depend on the thickness and effort, as many installers and common people tend to believe.

 

Honestly, I am very surprised as well... From the aesthetic point, not all films remained the same in appearance after the test.
