Main features of car paint protection films

  • Maximum adhesion of paint: Corona treatment allows the film to attract and retain paint overspray during booth painting. Forget the paint slipping downward and dropping on the floor. The film will hold back the paint and ensure a clean job;
  • Translucent material: Car paint protection film is made of transparent polyethylene designed to ease the movement of vehicles during painting operations;
  • High resistance: The special high density composition of the material makes it tear resistant;
  • Excellent adhesion: During the production process, car paint protection film is electrically charged in order to acquire electrostatic properties, which allow it to cling easily to the vehicle and adhere steadily to the surface;
  • High temperature resistance:Engineered to resist up to 110°C/230°F, withstanding the temperature required in body shop spray booth painting;
  • Solvent Resistance: The chemical structure of the HDPE used in car paint protection film is resistant to the solvent used in many of the paints for automotive refinishing.

Or an alternative: Q1® Premium Masking Paper

What if you need extra safety? Choose masking paper, thicker and heavier than the classical automotive masking film.

Q1® automotive masking paper boasts good penetration resistance preventing the paint from filtering through and staining the surface of the vehicle. The paper is ideal to protect wide areas where a product stronger than masking film is required, and is recommended to eliminate rework caused by fibre contamination in paint job.
