30 Aug Paint Protection Film for Motorcycles, RVs, Boats, and More!
Transparent paint protection film has been a secret of luxury car owners for decades, but now the word is getting out and drivers of all kinds are enjoying the benefits—and not just those who drive cars, either. Paint protection film is made from clear thermoplastic urethane that can adhere to virtually any painted surface on any type of vehicle. That’s great news for anyone who has lots of toys, and there’s certainly no shortage of boats, RVs, and motorcycles in South Florida.
Before we look at some examples of non-automotive PPF applications, it might be good to start out by answering the question…
What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint protection film, also known as clear bra or PPF, is a virtually invisible polymer plastic film that protects finished surfaces from chips, light scratches, bug splatters, and minor abrasions.
Paint protection film was first developed by 3M for the U.S. Military as an inconspicuous and lightweight solution to protect helicopter rotor blades and other sensitive parts of military transport vehicles from flying shrapnel and debris. In time the automotive industry took note of the protective benefits of paint protection film and contemporary films were developed exclusively for consumer cars and trucks—and so much more.
Motorcycle Paint Protection
The same paint protection film that’s used on millions of cars can also be used to protect nearly all painted areas of your motorcycle. PPF is an affordable way to keep your bike in showroom condition by preventing chips, scratches, and stains from ruining your motorcycle’s appearance. Full paint protection film kits are available for your motorcycle, or you can have PPF installed on individual areas or panels that are more heavily abused than others, such as the gas tank and side bags. Film coverings are also available for your bike’s headlight, taillight, driving lights, and turn signals. If you have an older model or ride an exotic foreign motorcycle, you may need to have paint protection film custom cut and fitted on your bike as PPF and headlight film kits may not be as widely available.
Motorcycle paint protection film is available for:
- Touring bikes
- Dirt bikes
- Enduro racers
- And more!
RV Paint Protection
The open road is full of hazards that can scratch, chip, and stain, so it makes sense that RVs and motorhomes come under the heaviest assault and take the most abuse. After all, few other vehicles log as many miles on the open road as an RV. Whether you’re a full-timer or a weekend warrior, RV paint protection film will keep your land yacht looking like new even after many years and thousands of miles. Motorhome paint protection film is also a smart idea if you’ll be driving through multiple climates on your travels as it can protect against rust, fading, warping, and other environmental- and weather-related damages.
RV paint protection film is available for:
- Class A motorhomes
- Class B motorhomes
- Class C motorhomes
- Conversion busses
- Travel trailers
- Pop-up campers
- Truck shells
- And more!
Marine Paint Protection
Speaking of land yachts, paint protection film is available for actual yachts too! In fact, PPF is a great investment for all sorts of watercrafts. There isn’t much concern about nicks and scratches while your marine vessel is in the water, but all the same road hazards that threaten your car’s paint job can also damage your boat or personal watercraft while it’s in tow. But what if you keep your boat docked at the marina? Marine paint protection can also prevent algae, scaling, warping, fading, and other hull damage. Not only will this protect your watercraft, but it can also save you the time and energy of scrubbing the hull clean at the end of the season.
Marine paint protection is available for:
- Fishing boats
- Personal watercrafts (Jet Skis)
- Kayaks and canoes
- And more!

PPF is so versatile that it can be applied to virtually any type of vehicle you own. Helicopter? You bet. ATV? No problem. Food truck? Most definitely. Professional PPF installers in Florida can cut and fit paint protection film for any type of personal or commercial vehicle you own. Want to know what else is possible? Just ask!
