What is Clear Bra?
Paint protection film (PPF), or clear bra, is a translucent, strong polyurethane film that adheres to the paint of your car. It’s made to blend in with your paint finish and absorb the little abrasions that occur over time. PPF is very resistant to damage from rock chips, insects, bird droppings, and other things in the environment.
Clear bra is similar to vinyl car wrap, vehicle graphics, or ceramic coating, in that it is a film that adheres to your factory paint. It differs from vinyl wrap in the following aspects:
- Clear bra is transparent
- Clear bra is tougher than car wrap
- Clear bra normally covers the front (and front-facing) sections of your vehicle, such as bumper, grille, fenders, mirrors, etc—though some people do opt to cover their entire vehicle in paint protection film because clear bra is the ultimate option for paint protection. It’s a shield that protects and preserves the value of your investment.
Benefits of Paint Protection Film (PPF)
In addition to protecting the finish and preserving its appearance, there are numerous benefits of putting clear bra paint protection on any new or used car:
- This protection film makes car cleaning a breeze. To completely remove stains from your car, all you need is a mixture of mild detergent and water.
- PPF is a great investment because it lasts a long time. As a result, you can save money on paint jobs.
- You can keep the market value of your car throughout time. If you decide to sell your vehicle in the future, installing our paint protection bra could boost its value.
Considerations Before Getting a Clear Bra
When it comes to applying PPF to your car, remember the following:
- Look for a reputed installer in Queens NY who has qualified PPF professionals. Clear bra installation is as painstaking as painting a car.
- Stick with well-known brands like 3M, Avery Dennison, and Ceramic Pro, which offer a no-nonsense warranty.
- Choose which parts of your car you wish to wrap with clear bra. The front and rear bumpers, hood, side mirrors, doors, and fenders are the most common spots for a clear bra. You can also choose comprehensive coverage.

Use gentle cleaning and polishing chemicals instead.
