Invisible paint protection film allows full-vehicle coverage

April 2, 2014
Solar Gard, unveils Clearshield Pro, an invisible barrier that protects vehicle paint from chips, scratches and stains caused by road debris, salt, insects, sap and other environmental damage. 

Solar Gard®, a company of Saint-Gobain, a global leader in the development, manufacturing and distribution of specialty films, today unveiled Clearshield Pro. Clearshield Pro is an invisible barrier that acts like body armor for your paint, providing peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle will look like new for years. 

“Our customers told us they needed a wider, more durable Clearshield that was also easier to install.  We listened to the market and that is what we developed in Clearshield Pro,” said Dave Anderson, Director of R&D and Marketing, Solar Gard. “We made the material stronger, clearer, and more form-fitting for easier installation and greater protection across the entire vehicle.”

Clearshield Pro comes with a limited 7-year warranty* and is available to the Solar Gard network of professional installers in rolls up to 60” inches (1.5 meters) in width. This means that professional installers can now cover large portions of the car like full hoods and roofs, but the benefits can also be applied to more targeted areas.

“Almost all of us can remember scratching the paint around our car door or trunk while reaching for our keys,” said Lawrence Constantin, Director of Sales & Marketing  - Americas, Solar Gard. “Professional-grade Clearshield Pro makes protecting these chip-prone areas easier, helping your vehicle hold its resale value and keeping you driving in style.  It really is the best protection you’ll never see.”

* 7-year limited warranty coverage available in North America only
