Window film (tint) is a thin laminate film that can be installed to the interior or exterior of glass surfaces in automobiles and boats and also to the interior or exterior of glass in homes and buildings. It is usually made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family, due to its clarity, tensile strength, dimensional stability, and ability to accept a variety of surface-applied or embedded treatments. Window films are generically categorized by their construction components (dyed, pigmented, metalized, ceramic, or nano), their intended use (automotive, marine, or architectural), substrate type (glass or polycarbonate), and/or their technical performance (privacy, solar control, safety, and security).
Automotive window film is used to protect the vehicles. The film can block a lot of heat generated by infrared rays very well and prevent skin damage, but also reduce car interior aging. The base layer of the film is a polyester film, which is very resistant to tearing and breakdown. With the adhesive layer of the film, the strength of the glass after the film is applied can prevent the accidental glass breakage from causing damage to the driver and passengers. After the film is applied, it is usually impossible to see the inside of the car from the outside of the car, while the outside of the car can be seen clearly from the inside of the car, preserving privacy and security.
Architectural window film is a self-adhesive or static cling that can be used for a variety of permanent or temporary applications. Glass film is extremely adaptable as it can be cut into precise designs, such as letters and numbers, or printed to create eye-catching visuals such as pictures or company branding.
Paint protection film (PPF, also called a clear bra, clear film, or clear paint film) is a thermoplastic urethane often self-healing film applied to painted surfaces of a new or used car in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, and minor abrasions. This film is also used on airplanes, RVs, cell phones, electronics, screens, motorcycles, and many other areas. The paint protection film is OEM approved by virtually all car manufacturers. The paint protection film is installed on a limited basis by manufacturers on various pieces of cars at the factory (e.g. the rear arches of Porsches). This film is most commonly applied to high-impact areas of vehicles which include: the hood, the front fenders, the front bumper, the side-view mirrors, the rocker panels, the lower portion of the doors, and the rear guards behind the rear wheels.
TPU PPF is a high-performance, uncoated thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) paint and surface protection film. It provides a strong and durable shield for any bare or painted metal, glass or plastic surface exposed to extreme conditions to prevent damage from abrasion, chipping, chemicals and wear. TPU PPF has excellent abrasion and impact resistance to provide adhesive coaters, automotive engineers, appliance designers and electronics display manufacturers a durable layer of protection for cars, trucks, appliances, mobile devices, computers, electronic display screens and more. TPU paint and surface protection films offer coaters and converters consistent optical clarity, conformability, UV resistance, lay-flat and Class-A gloss finish required for their products.
