Eastman Chemical Company’s LLumar has launched a new product: a next-generation paint protection film (PPF) that features increased product longevity. The company has also invested in its proprietary PPF pattern systems to deliver a more efficient installation experience.
LLumar Platinum PPF provides a water-resistant surface with proprietary Hydrogard technology for a high level of durability. This hydrophobic polymer coating works by preventing water and dirt from embedding into the surface of the film, which helps keep cars looking cleaner for longer. The product is backed by a ten-year limited warranty, and is supported by new merchandising and collateral materials that communicate the benefits to the consumer
at point of sale.
Eastman’s SunTek team recently launched its paint protection film line, PPF Ultra, which features a proprietary top coat. It’s backed by a ten-year limited warranty, which includes a labor allowance against cracking, bubbling or yellowing.
With a self-healing top-coat formula that resists installation scratching and scuffing, the product’s repositionable adhesive provides flexibility during the installation as well as vehicle protection from damage caused by gravel, rocks, salt, insects and other road debris, according to the company.
A low-surface-energy top coat increases stain resistance and product longevity by limiting water and dirt accumulation on the film’s surface.
Available in 60-inch-wide rolls for full hood coverage, PPF Ultra offers both high-gloss (clear) and matte finishes on 3-inch cores.
DuraShield ScratchBlockers is the latest offering from Sharpline Converting. According to the company, this Titan XT paint protection film prevents the effects of normal wear-and-tear a vehicle endures in high-use areas.
The film protects door edges from damage from contact with walls, curbs and other vehicles. It also defends vehicle door-handle pockets against key scratches and other scrapes, and prevents scuffs, scrapes and scratches to rear bumper covers.
