A Double Layer of Invisible Protection
Scotchgard™ Paint Protection Film SGH12 supplies dual layers of advanced protection for exposed automotive surfaces. This extra-thick 12 mil (203 micron) thermoplastic polyurethane film is reinforced with a clearcoat that provides additional protection from UV damage. It comes with an easy release liner, and a clear acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) layer that adheres easily and securely to automotive paint systems, shielding the surface beneath from damage. Our Scotchgard™ Paint Protection Film is designed for a higher level of performance than 3M™ VentureShield™ Paint Protection Film. Its added thickness makes it ideal for OEM applications.
Out of Sight Defense
Paint protection film, also known as "clear bra", is one of the best ways to preserve the showroom quality finish of a vehicle. It keeps vehicles looking newer longer, without changing the design features or color, by creating a barrier and protecting vulnerable areas such as front bumpers, hoods, fenders, side mirrors, door handle cavities, door edges, and rocker panels. It holds up under high heat, UV exposure and salt spray. Preserving the finish of a vehicle with paint protection film (PPF) keeps it looking newer longer, and can enhance the resale value of the vehicle in the future.
When applied, the transparent film is almost indistinguishable from the original finish. The tough, durable, virtually invisible urethane film offers excellent conformability around contours and is an excellent choice for maintaining the new car look that owners desire.
