Paint Protection

Paint protection films (PPF) help protect your car’s paint finish from damage caused by rocks, gravel, sand, and insects through the application of an 8 millimeter thin, and virtually invisible, urethane paint protection film.

Clearshield Paint Protection Film

ComputerCut offers proprietary software that allows a dealer access to hundreds of vehicle Clearshield kit designs via the Internet providing you with an extensive up-to-date vehicle library.

Solar Gard Clearshield is the latest, most advanced development in automotive paint finish protection. This nearly undetectable, protective urethane film is designed to resist impact from the everyday damaging road hazards such as gravel, debris, stones, road salt and even insects. Clearshield is ComputerCut according to your vehicle’s make and model so it fits like a glove on the most chip-prone surfaces, such as the hood, mirrors and bumpers, requiring no drilled holes or special fasteners like other protection products. So, while you won’t even notice Clearshield is there, it will be constantly hard at work helping to protect your vehicle from costly chips, nicks and scratches. Best of all, Clearshield is backed by a strong, 5-year warranty, an additional 5-year warranty or life-time warranty may be purchased from Digi Sports, and requires no special maintenance – simply clean, wash and wax your vehicle the same way you always have.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
