calendar-icon 24 July 2023

In the world of automotive painting and refinishing, attention to detail is paramount. Every professional knows the importance of preserving the integrity of a vehicle during the painting process. That’s where automotive masking films come into play, providing a reliable solution to ensure stain-free car care. In this article, we will introduce two Q1® products that guarantee superior results: Q1® Premium Masking Drop and Q1® Paint Masking Film.

Q1® Premium Drop film: perfect protection for precise results


Q1® Premium Drop Film is a paint masking film specifically designed to safeguard the parts of a vehicle that should not be painted. This high-density polyethylene (HDPE) film possesses remarkable qualities that make it an ideal choice for automotive professionals. One of its standout features is the electrostatic charge, which attracts the film onto the vehicle surface, ensuring a safe and secure application. Thanks to the corona treatment, Q1® Premium Drop Film offers a strong adherence of the paint to the film, preventing any unwanted seepage or bleed-through. This feature guarantees precise protection, allowing automotive professionals to focus on achieving immaculate finishes without worrying about accidental paint damage.

Professional-Grade Automotive Masking Film: Q1® Premium Drop Film


With the ability to withstand temperatures up to 110°C/230°F for half an hour and 90°C/194°F for one hour, Q1® Premium Masking Drop film ensures durability even in demanding environments. Automotive professionals can trust Q1® Premium Drop Film to hold up under the heat generated during the painting process. Furthermore, the film is designed for easy removal. After the painting job is complete, professionals can remove the film, leaving behind clean surfaces with no residue. This not only saves time but also contributes to a smooth workflow and seamless transition to the next stage of the refinishing process.

Auto refinishing protective drop film: versatile masking for wide areas


In the car refinishing sector, masking off large areas of vehicles is a common practice. Refinishing masking drop films are employed to simplify this process and ensure precise boundaries for painting. Q1® Premium Drop Film is an excellent choice for such applications. Using masking tape to fasten the film to the desired areas, automotive professionals can achieve clean and precise masking, providing a clear separation between the painted and non-painted surfaces. This allows for efficient and accurate refinishing, eliminating the risk of overspray and ensuring a stain-free car care process.

Q1® Premium Protective Film: Preserving the Pristine Condition


In addition to masking films, car paint protection films play a crucial role in maintaining the pristine condition of vehicles. Q1® Premium Protective Film is a clear HDPE protective sheet specifically engineered for automotive painting jobs. Treated to ensure paint adhesion for both solvent and waterborne paints, this film provides excellent protection against overspray. When working inside paint spray booths, the car paint protection film acts as a barrier, preventing paint drops from spreading onto the booth's floor. By retaining paint drops on its surface, the film helps maintain a clean and safe working environment while safeguarding the vehicle's surfaces from unwanted stains.

A Refinishing Protective Film Resistant to Extreme Temperatures

Q1® Premium Protective Film is designed to withstand extreme temperatures, ensuring its resilience in various automotive applications. With a temperature resistance of up to 110°C/230°F, this film provides reliable protection even in high-heat environments. Additionally, its translucent shade aids in the movement of vehicles, facilitating a smooth and efficient workflow during the refinishing process.
