FEYNLAB® PPF & Vinyl Ceramic
FEYNLAB® PPF & VINYL CERAMIC coating is specifically designed to protect the porous surface of Vinyl or Self Healing Paint Protection Films (PPF). Originally engineered for water spot protection, the high surface tension (hydrophobic properties) of PPF & VINYL helps keep surfaces cleaner for longer. Additionally, PPF & VINYL enhances the gloss to standard PPF while allowing matte Vinyl and PPF to retain their dulled appearance.
PPF & VINYL is engineered specifically to enhance self-healing top coat Paint Protection Films by adding water spot protection.
- Increased UVA and UVB ray protection.
- Impressive hydrophobic and self-cleaning properties and ease of maintenance on Vinyl and PPF finishes.
- Enhances gloss on appropriate finish types, while leaving both matte Vinyl & PPF surfaces with a dulled appearance.
- FEYNLAB’s™ true nanotechnology and bonding chemistry allows for an unparalleled level of protection since the formula penetrates further into the existing paint structure than anything else available.

The application includes 1 component layer, reaching an overall film build between 1-2 microns.
APPROVED SURFACES FOR APPLICATION ONLY:
- Vinyl & Vinyl Wrapped Surfaces
- Paint Protection Film (a.k.a. PPF or Clear Bra)
Unopened – 1 year. Opened – Use within 7 days. ALWAYS keep the cap on the bottle when not in use.
30ml (1oz) FEYNLAB® PPF & VINYL
Always wear a respirator & gloves during application. Ensure the application area is free of loose contamination.
Thoroughly clean vehicle using FEYNLAB® PURE WASH. Follow with a topical decontamination clay treatment using FEYNLAB® PRIME. If necessary, use a ferrous iron removal product to remove all embedded iron deposits. After polishing paint to the desired level, remove all polish oils using FEYNLAB® PANEL PREP to ensure optimal bonding and durability of the coating.
Prior to application place the vehicle in a well lit, temperature-controlled 10°C-30°C (50°F-85°F), & contamination-free environment. Have plenty (6 or more) new microfiber towels, 2 or 3 microfiber sponge applicators, and 1 foam applicator on hand BEFORE application.
Vehicle Trim: First coat all soft plastic trim pieces, headlights, taillights, black piano trim and other porous surfaces with their appropriate coating. FEYNLAB® PLASTIC works great for this. Avoid these surfaces with ANY OTHER FEYNLAB® COATING and wipe off immediately if any product touches these surfaces.
PPF & VINYL should always be tested on a small section of paint protection film before first use. FEYNLAB® has tested product compatibility with most major films in the industry. However, there are hundreds of films on the market, and it’s impossible to guarantee compatibility with all of them. Always perform a test spot if unsure’ preferably on a scrap piece of PPF not on the vehicle. If the product causes a small test area to become hazy, either reduce the dwell time or stop the application completely.
- Apply enough PPF & VINYL to a microfiber applicator to fully cover a single panel such as a door or half a hood.
- Make a “+” (plus) sign with product in the middle of the panel, then wipe around the boundaries of the section creating a frame.
- Next, fill in the framed area with slightly overlapping horizontal (left to right) straight lines over the entire panel. After, switch to vertical overlapping lines. This cross-hatching pattern ensures even application.
- After application, step back and look for any areas missed or those with excess product. If found, smooth out evenly with the applicator. This will ensure even drying across the panel.
- Allow PPF & VINYL to dwell on the panel 6-10 min, or until it is about 75% dry. Dwell time may vary depending on humidity and temperature. * Humid Climates 75%+ = Shorter Dwell time.
- To test removal readiness: lightly swipe a small spot with a gloved finger. If the swipe reveals a clean trail then remove it. If the swipe smears then allow it to dwell longer. Repeat swipe test again in 2-5 min increments to determine wipe times.
- Wipe off PPF & VINYL following the same pattern of application, using two clean microfiber towels. Towel A (left hand) will remove the majority of coating residue. Towel B (right hand) will remove any remaining residue, revealing a crystal clear surface.
Recommended Maximum Area of Application:
Varies depending on the Vinyl or PPF manufacturer. Always perform a test spot to determine the appropriate manageable area of application.
Carefully inspect all finished panels for leftover coating residue (high spots) before moving on to the rest of the car. Commonly edges, emblems and tight spaces tend to hold the remaining product. High spots are much easier to remove if you catch within a 20-40 min window after final wipe than later on.
Post Application Instructions
- Avoid any incidental water exposure for 24 hours. If it occurs, gently wipe water off the surface.
- Avoid all chemicals including car washes for 7 days.
- Wash & Maintain using FEYNLAB® PURE WASH or FEYNLAB® PURE RINSELESS and FEYNLAB® DETAILER
All FEYNLAB® Coatings are subject to different dwell and curing time windows due to humidity and temperature conditions. In General, the higher the humidity level the quicker the coating will cure. If humidity level approaches 75% or higher then consider lessening the recommended dwell and wipe times for the coating.
Additionally moving air will decrease coating dwell times for areas it contacts. Therefore, it is recommended to stop all moving air as much as possible during coating applications to ensure consistency for all portions of the vehicle.
Coatings are best applied in temperature controlled environments of 10°C-30°C (50°F-85°F), with humidity as low as possible.
