Has anyone used this product as an alternative to PPF?

https://ngenco.com

- Is it a durable product like PPF?
- Does it protect as well as PPF?
- Any paint issues when having it removed?

Cheers

Never heard of it, marketing looks impressive but I'm always sceptical of new stuff! There's so many questions with car protection that need answering too.

For example, in the promo video, it would be good to see them do the "stone" test on a car - they appear to have chosen an upturned BBQ!

There is very little info on the product but Lichfield see fit to charge £2400 for a front end spray!

It is a promising looking product but not sure I would pay more than ppf for it just to hide some film lines. Ppf was good on my lotus Evora but started to lift in areas after almost 18 months and didn’t work very well in curved edges. That’s there this could be good but at the prices I have seen so far it’s too much.

I've been watching this product develop for quite some time now, having looked to add it to our business almost two years ago now - The company that actually produces it is in Australia and Ngenco are the UK distributor - I think it's great and I believe a version of this will be the future for Paint Protection, but we're still quite a way off that in my opinion.

It's far too expensive when compared to the already proven PPF, the process is much longer (hence the price) and the protection level isn't yet comparable - In that video you can see at least one, maybe two of the impacts appear to have dented the panel and they then neglect to remove that part of the product!
Not that I can say 100% that PPF would've saved the dent, but I'm pretty sure it would, the three layered construction of PPF gives a huge amount of impact absorption whereas this product by design is much more rigid.

With the quality of the films now and the advanced patterning techniques PPF takes some beating when done properly, amazing to see where it's come in the last 10 years.

That’s the kind of info i was after! Much appreciated. I’ll stick with ppf for the moment until this product is a bit more proven and maybe more developed.

Hi Darren,

Can you share the link and name of the original company?

I looked into this more recently to replace PPF as a service.
It's now distributed by Topaz in the UK.

I've seen a couple of cars protected with it, and while it's good - you get high spots, a bit of orange peel, even though it self levels well.
I've stuck with PPF smile

A little to late for me, but do not put this on your car. The product has changed 3 times in the last 6 months, still isn't stable, ruined a colour change on my car. Pennings the distribution company have now dropped it, I will let them explain why!

Whilst PPF isn't always perfect, its so much better than this poorly mixed and distributed product.
