Hexis launches Carprotect

Added: (Mon Jul 16 2007)

Pressbox (Press Release) - A new development from the Hexis automotive division is the Carprotect clear protective film.

The Hexis Carprotect film is a transparent 150μm self-adhesive Urethane film specially designed for the durable protection of vehicle bodies. With its excellent shock proofing properties it protects vehicle paintwork against environmental aggressions such as stone chipping, scratches, carwash brushes, insect debris etc. The film is totally transparent and as good as invisible and thus does not alter the vehicle colour.

Sercovam, an independent laboratory, successfully tested the film for compliance with Renault industrial standard specifications for self-adhesive vehicle protection films. The test confirms that the Hexis Carprotect film resists carwash brushes, high-pressure steam cleaners, abrasion, friction, exposure to sunlight and petrol spillage. The major benefits for the user are the durable protection of the paintwork, the unchanged appearance of the vehicle and the improved resale value.

The adhesive formulation allows clean removal of the film without leaving behind any adhesive residues. Besides the protection of vehicle bodywork, doorsills, bumpers, headlights and wing mirrors against damage from stone chips etc. the film also aids in protecting painted panels from vandalism, key scratches, minor accidents and car park scuffs.

The Carprotect film is available in rolls 1230mm wide by 20m long. A data sheet and samples are available directly from Hexis or from local distributors.

Hexis manufactures a wide range of graphic vinyl and digital printing media used for sign making and vehicle markings. The company owns 2 manufacturing sites and subsidiaries in Germany and the USA. Hexis exports over 40% of its turnover to over 40 countries worldwide with sales of EUR 29 million in 2006.
