ClearPlex® is the first and only optically-clear protection film for a number of substrate applications. Produced by the ClearPlex® Corporation of Utah, USA, ClearPlex® film was originally developed to improve the durability and safety of racing car glazing. Oval track racing takes place on very small tracks, where collisions are frequent, giving rise to a substantial risk of damage to other cars from debris. Breakages of windscreens at racing speeds can render the driver instantly sightless, a highly undesirable outcome.
Over the years, many plastic films have been developed to protect and tint glass surfaces, but none offers the resistance to damage, or the optical purity of ClearPlex®.
Clearly Safer When applied to the windscreens of cars, trucks and buses, ClearPlex® reduces the risks of chipping, scratching or breakage by an order of magnitude. The cost of automotive glass has risen dramatically in recent years. Modern windscreens have aerials, heating filaments and other devices embedded within them. In addition, they are frequently retained by a bonding system which requires greater skills and time to replace than traditional, rubber moulding-retained screens. Breaking a screen these days is an eye-wateringly expensive event, resulting in extensive downtime for the vehicle. Whether private, or part of a fleet of rental, commercial or public service vehicles, windscreens protected by ClearPlex® film will survive many impacts which otherwise would have entailed removal of the vehicle from the road and a hefty bill for replacement.
Clearly cooler The advantages of ClearPlex® film for your vehicle or fleet don’t stop at its resistance to damage. The Australian environment makes car interior heat and glare a real problem. Although optically pure, ClearPlex® reduces the Ultra violet component of the light entering the vehicle and reduces glare, keeping the interior cooler, and prolonging the life of the soft furnishings.
Clearly longer lasting To extend even further the protection provided by ClearPlex® film, Clear HD polymer treatment maintains its scratch resistance and water-repellent properties, and seals it against bird droppings, insects and other contaminants.
Clearly tougher The ClearPlex® advantage is not confined to the road. Its optical purity make it ideal for protecting a wide variety of hand-held devices. The mobile phone revolution has brought a host of challenges. Familiarity breeds contempt, and people expect their phones, players and tablets to survive the most horrendous treatment, yet still give good service.
Clearly Professional The optical purity of ClearPlex® lends it ideally to the protection of photographic equipment. Professional video and still photographers are famously hard on their equipment, operating in environments where there is a constant risk of damage from abrasion and impact. ClearPlex® provides lens protection for the Hero Gopro and the Canon D60.
