Will Clearshield really stop rocks from chipping the front of my car?
Yes. The material that it is made from was originally designed to protect the leading edges of aircraft propellers and rotor blades from rock chips. It is a much easier task to protect your vehicles paint than it is to protect an aircraft propeller moving at nearly the speed of sound.
Can I see a line where Clearshield stops?
A line is slightly visible where the film stops, but the three alternatives to that line are a bug shield, a car bra or rock chips—all of which will be more visible than the paint protection film.
How hard is it to see on the car after it is applied?
The material is about 99.5% clear. On any color darker than stark white, you can’t see the film. On a stark white car, you can see that .5% of color, but it is “invisible” at a short distance.
How long will it last? When will I have to replace the kit?
Our product is warranted for 5 years.
How is Clearshield applied?
Our ComputerCut® machine cuts the plastic into shapes designed to fit various parts of your car. These pieces are then applied to the vehicle in a very similar fashion to that of window tint. The Clearshield pieces and the painted surface are then wet with a solution and the film is moved into the precise location it is supposed to be. Then the extra solution is squeegeed away as the film dries it adheres to the car.
Will my paint fade differently under the shield than it does on the rest of the car?
No. The material does contain an inhibitor to prevent the plastic from reacting to the sun's UV rays, but this does not prevent the UV rays from passing through the plastic into your paint.
Can Clearshield be removed?
Yes. It can be removed easily and will not damage the paint. To remove the film, you must heat the Clearshield on your car to approximately 150° using a heat gun or a hair dryer. Start in a corner and gently work the film with your finger. Once you have enough of the material free from the surface to hold on to, slowly pull the film from the paint working just behind the heat source. The film will easily release from the paint and will not leave a residue.
