What is PPF?
PPF stands for Paint Protection Film. Paint Protection Film was not originally intended for automobiles or civilian use, but was developed as a tool for military operations. It consists of an ultra-thin polyurethane, or polymer, which when properly applied by a Carr Tech professional, forms a transparent protective surface layer. Due to its ability to conform to almost any surface, and then form a tight bond with whatever it was allowed to cure atop, this film became commonly referred to as helicopter tape, or “heli tape” for short.
What Does it protect from?
This “skin” protects a car’s clear coat and the paint beneath it from things like Surface Scratches, UV Exposure, Hard Water Deposits, Acid Rain, Oxidation, and much more.
Answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.
- Why should I get PPF? The top 5 reasons for getting Paint Protection Film include: Increase the life of the paint job; Reduce need for washing; Scratch protection; Maintains resale value; Saves money over time.
- What are the different types of PPF? A few of the types/ nicknames for Paint protective products include: Clear Bra, Clear Mask, Invisible Shield, Clear Wrap, Car Protection Film.
- How do I get the most out of my PPF? The best way to get the most out of your PPF is by combining it with a quality ceramic coating.
A few Smart PPF facts …
- Since PPF started life as a military application, there was no need originally for it to create a glossy, or completely clear appearance, therefore early versions were either completely opaque, or a dull, hazy-looking sheen.
- The top layer of the PPF is comprised of an elastomeric polymer substance that helps the material maintain a natural shape once it’s been stretched or applied to something like a painted or clear-coated surface. This allows the PPF to “self-heal” when light scratches occur.
I got my windows tinted there and they went the extra mile to clean some dog hair out of my windows that’s been stuck for months, and it wasn’t easy to get to and they didn’t charge me for the extra work!! So support the local economy check ‘em out!!
Contacted them to have my grills swapped out on my vehicle and they were willing to do it for a very reasonable price. They did an awesome job!
Kevin and the entire Carr Tech team were great to work with! Been driving my older Lexus all year with a dent. Stopped in on a Friday so they could see the dent above the driver's side front tire and in 20 min. had an estimate I was very happy with. Dropped the car off Sunday night and by 2:30 pm Monday it was done. Wish I had stopped in months ago! They also touched up a few paint chip areas where the dent was and buffed my headlights which are shining bright now! Thanks Carr Tech.
Fast easy and super clean!
Good job end right on time
They did a great job on tinting one of our trucks. Very experienced & knowledgeable. We are actually coming back next week to do another truck. Would recommend!
Great place for all tinting. Very experienced and quick service. Really takes care of their customers. Various options for what kind of tint that you want or need. Did a great job on my son's little Tacoma, made it look so much better with properly installed tint on the vehicle. Can't recommend them enough. Excellent service
I found Them to be most knowledgeable and helpful in selecting proper shade for my needs. The price is most reasonable and They place customer satisfaction at the forefront. I highly recommend this company.
Fast and great quality service. My windows look great, and I am very happy. Will definitely be bringing my other vehicles.
I needed my SUV Panoramic moon roof done. There was just too much light coming in when I turned my head a certain way while driving…They did a great job! So, I took it back before a long road trip. I really liked the moon roof being tinted (he did a fabulous job). Wow! The next time turned out great too! They did my side windows, back window, and my windshield, also a Sunstrip at the top of my windshield, which I really appreciate! I had no idea they offered things like that. It makes such a difference, day and night driving! I’ve had windows tinted on vehicles before, but this company, from my observation…Better than the rest. I’m very pleased.

Great dent repair. Cannot even see where it was. Fast and easy service.
I had my back hatch repainted and a dent fixed on the front fender. These two jobs were done in a timely manner and they did an excellent job. Car looks brand new again! Office had good communication skills and very easy to work with! I highly recommend Carr Tech in Warsaw!
The Car Tech guys were very friendly, super helpful, and did an AWESOME job! My hood shines like a new mirror!
Had them take a dent out of hood, my vehicle is only a month old. They were super fast, polite and can't even tell where it was. Would recommend
I had a big door ding on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. They got me in within a couple days. They even did it on Labor Day! The car looked brand new again. Great service!!
They did a great job on my window tint. I wasn't sure the right way to go since the back was already factory tint. Told them I was leaving it in their hands and they did a great job. Gave me the less expensive tint because it matched the factory. They were honest with my money and didn't take advantage of the situation.
They got a friend's very dirty truck, very clean. Polite, professional, & got us in quick.
Great, quick and friendly service, at a great price.

Highly recommend, great service and awesome job on my Ram. Looks brand new and happy with the protection, shine and quality that will add even more $$ when I resale.
The painless dent repair they performed was top notch. Super honest and very easy to work with! They have all my future business!!
My baby looks brand new! Thanks so much for your hard work and fabulous job!
Had dent removed… very nice result.
Carr Tech did an amazing job for both our Tesla and Suzuki! My Tesla was ceramic wrapped professionally. Now it shines better and dirt comes off way more easier. Our older Suzuki had it's paint restored and the results are night and day. They were also friendly and willing to explain any questions/concerns we had. I recommend the services Carr Tech provides!
Friendly staff and Great customer service! They did an amazing job restoring my car, it practically looks brand new! I highly recommend their services!
Full detail of a small SUV. It SPARKLES. stains that I thought were permanent are gone. Well worth the premium they charge. Completed on time, on quote, and with a smile.
Really great people that provide impeccable service…would definitely recommend them!
I recommend them for detailing, Great job.
Super friendly and awesome customer service. I took my car there to be looked at and given a price. They came to my house the next morning to fix it (took all the dents out of my car door) and it looks great. Would definitely 100% recommend!!
I was very impressed with the work you did on my car.
Kevin and his crew did an excellent job on my 1999 Ford Ranger. I thought that I was going to have to get it repainted because the paint was old and faded. But he made it look new again. I'm amazed at how well it turned out!
I had my van cleaned inside from my 4 kids and it looks beyond brand new. 10/10 recommend service
Kevin came to my house and completely removed a small dent from my classic car. He was very professional and easy to work with, did an amazing job I would recommend his services to anyone. https://youtu.be/NkQKe7f8qHE
Great job on the interior detailing of my truck! Very clean
My customers commented on how nice the van was. Thank you Carrtech for helping me put my best foot forward. You did an awesome job.
Kevin is a great guy and has a fantastic team, offering premium level paint correction, dent removal and ceramic coating.

Great professional service! Did a wonderful job detailing a truck for us. Looked brand new.
Carrtech is our go to for our car detailing needs. Kevin and their team have been fantastic in providing top notch service for our company. On top of that, their dent removal is easy to schedule and has a quick turnaround.
We have used Kevin for a few years now and he has saved us a lot of time and money in body work. This has really helped us get our cars to the auction quicker and turnaround time is essential to our success. We always appreciate his friendly and professional service and we trust him to work in our shop even if we have to make a run to town for an errand. We recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good quality job!
I used Kevin to fix 2 rather large dents on our 2012 Kia and we were impressed not only by his work but by his willingness to work around our busy schedule with kids in sports. Kevin at Carr Tech is our first choice.
These guys do an amazing job! Seriously the best details and PDR you could ask for! You will not regret using them!
Amazing job!!! Highly recommended for any job on your vehicle!!!!
Fabulous service and an awesome job on dent removal. My new car LOOKS new again. Thanks Kevin and crew!
we brought my fiancee's car in with a sharp dent on the bodyline, it looks brand new. absolutely perfect. very fair pricing too. we will definitely be coming back for any dent repairs in the future
They did an amazing job on getting out the door ding I had on my driver door of my brand new Challenger. They were very nice and the prices are great!! I highly recommend their services.
Kevin fixed a nasty dent on my 99 Lexus LS400. By the time he was done it looked as if there was never a dent in the first place. Amazing work and a great experience. Thank you!
Couldn’t have asked for anything more! Great communication, fast service, super polite staff, great pricing, and phenomenal craftsmanship! My hood looks like nothing ever happened to it! Thanks once again! Will gladly be doing business with you guys again!
We took our 2019 Camaro here for ceramic coating and it looks awesome. They did a great job and my wife is so pleased with her car. Highly recommend them for ceramic coating services.
Another great job. The crew was very thorough.
Kevin and his employees have always completed what was promised. I can ask for no more than that.
Kevin did an awesome job, we had a scheduled appointment at our home for 9AM, he was on time, not a minute late. After 5 hours of working on 2 dents, he didn't finish until the job was to his satisfaction, which is perfect. Very reasonable prices as well! I would definitely recommend him to everyone! Thanks again, Kevin!
Excellent job removing the dents from my vehicle! If you have any dents from shopping carts, parking lot door dings, or hail damage that are an eye sore on your vehicle, this is the place to get your car looking top notch again without any painting.
Kevin just removed a 19 inch crease from my back fender on my 2015 Ford Explorer. You cannot see a single mark, it is gone, the paint is smooth and shiny, it looks factory new.
Great detailing job with every detail and nook cleaned really well! Erased all evidence of being a young families habitat and nows it's cleaner than when we got it off the lot from dealer after they had detailed it!

When I went to pick up my car, I could not believe the job this place did. The repair was 100% perfect! I'm so pleased with this place. Top-notch and so friendly! I highly recommend them. Thank you Carr Tech, for a professionally finished product!
Kevin has been a saint not only in saving myself time but my employer $$. His workmanship & attitude are flawless. HIGHLY recommend his services.
I have been doing business with Kevin for several years. His work is always top-notch and he keeps his appointments on time. Kevin shows up with a smile and always has a positive professional attitude. I recommend his services often and always get positive feedback from my clients and friends.
I highly recommend CarrTech! They have fixed 2 dents on my husband's truck and did a great job. I was there today, and they had time to fix a scratch on my truck door. Very pleased with how they fixed it, you can't tell it was even scratched! It looks great! Super nice people and great service.
Very good service and they do amazing work, I’m very happy with how my truck turned out!
I finally decided to stop in and get an idea about what it might cost to get some dings & dents repaired. Kevin showed me what they could fix based on the size of the dented area. He kept track of the area of the dents & we went back in the office where he gave a fair estimate of his repair costs. They looked at the calendar and they could get to it in a little over a week. I took it in and he said he hoped to have it done later in the day. My truck was waiting for me when I got there, so I got with Kevin and we looked over the repaired areas. I was very satisfied with the work that Carr Tech did for me at a reasonable cost and in a timely manner. They were enjoyable to work with.
I could not be happier with the service with Carr Tech. I was able to take my car to Best One and they made my dent in the hood look almost invisible. If it wasn't for the rock hitting and taking paint off it would be like new. I am very happy with the service and definitely pleased with how quick they were!
They took out the deepest, gnarliest door ding I have ever seen. Can't even tell it ever happened.
Carr Tech did a full detail on my husband's work truck so it was very dirty and it came back spotless inside and out. They did an AMAZING JOB!!!
OMGosh!!! Talk about customer service 👍👍 so kind and pleasant, the owner even told me about a $25 off coupon I could use❣ Great people and could get me fixed up quickly🌞
Friendly staff, had it done before set time. The place where my dent was is not there, as if it never was!! Highly recommend.
I had them detail the inside of my Lincoln MKX recently. I take my Great Pyranese for rides in it a lot...so lots of dog hair. The inside of my car looked brand new when they finished it. Great job guys!!!
The best name for Ceramic Coatings, Dent Repairs and Car details is Carr Tech!

These guys do a wonderful job and they care about their work. Top notch! Highly recommend!
Great customer service and great work
Kevin removed some small dents from my SUV and then detailed the interior and exterior. Did a nice job. Will take another dent to hime soon.
I have never been as impressed with a car detail. The staff is knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. I had the ceramic coating put on my Jeep and it looked better than when I bought it! I recently took it back to have the front two windows tinted to match the factory tint. I am beyond happy with the outcome! I highly recommend Carr Tech. The customer service is top notch!
Just had my car detailed here and am very happy with their service all around. Great customer service and my car looks so nice! It was very needed and very appreciated! Every person I encountered was super polite and courteous. Better experience than I could have asked for.
Carr Tech did an amazing job getting a small dent out of my driver side door. They were extremely professional and friendly during my experience. The atmosphere of the lobby was great too. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of their services.
Stephen Kenneth Caudill
Kevin is the only guy I trust to get dents out on our car lot! He's gotten tricky ones out of body lines and even on the new aluminum bodies! Quick and reliable!
Excellent work and superb customer service. They did a great job removing some dents in my car; can’t even tell where the dents were. Highly recommend!
Don & Staci Goble
Wonderful place! They did an awesome job cleaning my truck inside and out! I highly recommend them for all your cleaning and detailing needs! Thank you again.
Great guys that work hard for their customers!
We had our Traverse detailed last week and the guys at Carr Tech did a fantastic job. Our car was very clean inside and out. I'd recommend this service to anyone and the owner, Kevin, was great to deal with. If you need a trustworthy place to have your vehicle detailed, give them a shot!
Excellent! They detailed the interior and exterior of my Jeep. It looks brand new! I could not be happier. I highly recommend.
Kevin and his team went above and beyond. Great service and they went the extra mile!
Paid for an exterior detail and received a whole lot more!! Brought my truck back to life. Best price/quality in town!
Very great work, and very friendly and accommodating! Came to my workplace and worked on my vehicle. So easy!
I had a dent in the hood of my brand new car and Kevin was able to fix it, not only the day he said but he fixed it flawlessly! I’m very happy all around with my experience! Very friendly and professional!
They detailed the interior of my pickup and when I picked it up it looked like a new pickup. They where very professional and their customer service is top notch! I highly recommend them!
I was very pleased with the quality of the work when I inspected my SUV. The rear door was hit hard by a grocery cart which left very distinctive indentations and marks. These were all repaired very well and one would never know the door was damaged. The owner, Kevin, verified I was satisfied prior to my departure.
Carr Tech has repaired multiple dents on 2 of my vehicles and the work was incredible each time. Take a photo of your dents before you drop your car off because it’s amazing to see the before and after shots. I highly recommend Carr Tech to my friends and I trust them with all of my vehicles. Awesome work and Awesome people!
