Paint Protection Film (PPF) or Vinyl Wrap ?
PPF and Vinyl Wraps serve slightly different purposes. PPF’s main purpose is to protect the paint of the vehicle from damage. Since the film is clear (although different coloured variations of PPF are in the market now), it does not make your vehicle look different. It might make it slightly more shiny, however, you won't see any major differences in appearance. Because the film is designed to protect the surface, it is thicker than vinyl, in order to be able to actually protect the paint from impact.
Vinyl wraps, on the other hand, drastically change the look of your car. Transformations that can be achieved with vinyl wraps are incredible. You can get any colour you want,options are limitless, even coloured changing vinyl are available. Can cover chrome areas, or add custom graphics. The main purpose of vinyl wraps is to customize the appearance of your vehicle, so the film is designed with this goal in mind. It also protects your car paint but not as much as PPF, it is thinner than PPF, and slightly more flexible.
