Paint Protection Film (PPF)

TPU Solutions for Paint Protection Film

Maintaining the Beauty of a Vehicle's Finish.
On the surface, a hard grade of ESTANE® TPU provides stain resistance and self-healing properties. While beneath the surface, the soft grade beneath absorbs impact from stones and road debris.

Nobody Knows TPU Polymer Technology Better

As the inventor of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), we offer more than 30 years of experience in developing innovative solutions for paint protection film (PPF). TPU is an essential ingredient in PPF with properties that maintain the appearance and integrity of surfaces.

With our commitment to PPF, we have pioneered our ESTANE® TPU into a consistent, high-quality TPU solution that enables efficient processing and lasting performance for PPF applications. 

The Power of Collaboration

In addition, our material and application scientists partner with product developers to expand possibilities, overcome challenges and bring products to the market quickly.

Demonstrated Performance

ESTANE® TPU sets the global standard for:

Premium Aesthetics.

ESTANE® TPU-based paint protection films are best positioned to maintain showroom-level vehicle appearance with non-yellowing clarity, self-healing properties and stain resistance.

Industry-Leading Toughness.

ESTANE® TPU keeps vehicle surfaces attractive through exceptional durability and enduring impact strength and elasticity while protecting against environmental exposures.


With its low-temperature flexibility, ESTANE® TPU conforms easily to complex shapes and surfaces, and it’s easy to remove without breaking or tearing.
