ESTANE TPU Solutions for PPF

ESTANE® TPU Solutions for Paint Protection Film

The Secret Inside the Leading PPF Products

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is an essential ingredient in paint protection film (PPF), capable of producing PPF that can provide premium protection, without yellowing or degrading, for more than a decade. 

We invented TPU more than 60 years ago and continue to produce the industry’s premier polymers through our flagship brand, ESTANE® TPU. The exceptional quality and consistency of ESTANE® TPU ensures efficient processing and produces crystal-clear, long-lasting PPF that helps keep vehicles looking showroom-new.

Working Together to Unlock the Potential of PPF

Our materials and applications scientists partner with film processors and PPF manufacturers to develop tailored solutions that expand the possibilities of PPF and enhance protection against everything from severe chips and scratches to extreme weather conditions. ESTANE® TPU enhances the look, feel and function of paint protection film.

Together, we can expand the possibilities of PPF, overcome challenges and bring high-quality, proven products to market quickly.
