Currently, there are many different types of automotive paint protection in the consumer market.

  • PPF 8 Mil- Our House Brand Paint Protection Series.
  • 3M Scotchgard Pro Series
  • 3M Scotchgard

 

PPF 8 Mil – Our House Brand Paint Protection Series.

We have been in the Paint Protection industry for over 35 years and have developed our own paint protection series to help protect against rock chips, and debris, we have a patented technology with a whopping 10-year warranty on material, and our product is tested and has been on our customer’s vehicles for over 12 years.

3M Scotchgard G200 Series – 8 Mil Hydrophobic

The next generation in paint protection film from 3M is here.
The new 3M Scotchgard Pro Series 200 Series provides an updated film from 3M which includes a more hydrophobic top coat, less aggressive adhesive, and a better finish overall.

It does not have 3M logos printed on the plastic liner.

3M Scotchgard Pro Series – 8 Mil

This is 3M’s latest and premiere product (and the only one being updated). It was launched in 2014. (edit: It has been updated four times as of 2022.) It leads the industry in clarity, the ability to self heal light scratches to the top layer, compliance, and ease of application. This is the only 3M material we both recommend using and currently offer.
It does not have 3M logos printed on the plastic liner.

 

3M Scotchgard

This was the industry benchmark for years. The last major update was in 2005. It was widely expected to be discontinued in 2014 when the Pro Series was launched. 3M has kept it around as a sort of B-grade material. It does perform well, though it is harder to apply, does not offer the clarity of the Pro Series, and does not have a self-healing layer.
It has pink 3M logos on the backing paper.

 

STEK Dynoshield – 8 Mil Hydrophobic

stek.info

STEK is a premium choice of Paint Protection Film. First, to market with a hydrophobic top coat, they are leading the pack with innovation. The flexibility of STEK is on another level.

DYNOshield provides you with a premium top-coated Paint Protection Film (PPF). Our nano-ceramic top coat is bonded to the film at a molecular level providing extreme hydrophobic properties and virtually eliminating the need for waxes and after-market top coatings. DYNOshield also has strong self-healing properties allowing light surface scratches to “heal” back to a smooth and glossy finish. Our proprietary top coat combined with UV-resistant, anti-yellowing adhesives gives DYNOshield unique clarity and performance with extreme puncture resistance.

 

SUNTEK Ultra – 8 Mil

Suntek.Ultra

Ultra Fusion PPF Ultra Paint Protection Film has built up quite a reputation in the last few years. Eastman is the company that owns Ultra Fusion PPF and Llumar. Ultra Fusion PPF is known for its ability to flex and stretch over complex curves.

 

SUNTEK Reaction 8Mil Hydrophobic

Suntek.ReactionProfessionally sold and installed Reaction PPF is backed from the purchase date by our 12-year limited warranty against cracking, bubbling, or yellowing.
Ultra Fusion PPF Reaction is a completely reinvented product that merges the super hydrophobicity* of ceramic coating with premium, self-healing paint protection film. This advanced two-in-one construction keeps your finish looking like it rarely sees the road, thanks to impressive protective benefits.

Reaction stands up head-on to flying gravel, salt, grit and more. It also has self-healing properties plus a noticeably clear finish with intense gloss and no orange peel appearance. This trailblazing PPF utilizes Eastman Tetrashield™ protective resin system technology, trusted by OEMs for their own finishes.

Reaction is formidable defense against nature’s harshest elements too, with 25% more stain resistance than top brands. Acid rain, bird droppings, tree sap, insects and dirt all wash effortlessly away from Reaction’s slick surface, leaving only envy-inducing shine behind.

*The durability and level of hydrophobic property can be influenced by environmental conditions and other variables beyond Manufacturer’s control (e.g., road treatment chemicals and cleaning substances/frequency).
