Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Windshield Protection
What is ClearPlex® Invisible Windshield Protection Film?
ClearPlex® is a patent-pending film applied to the exterior surface of a windshield, preventing damage from ordinary highway rock strikes and road debris. ClearPlex® is virtually invisible, providing optical clarity and UV protection.
Why should customers install ClearPlex®?
ClearPlex® provides three main benefits:
Impact resistance against normal road hazards
UV stabilizers which reduce vehicle heat, prolonging interior life
Faster run-off of rain, snow and other elements, providing better visibility
Will ClearPlex® impair the driver's vision?
No. ClearPlex® is optically clear and guaranteed not to peel, bubble, crack or yellow for the warranted life of the product. When installed properly, ClearPlex® is virtually invisible.
Is ClearPlex® scratch resistant?
Yes. Our hard-coated film features much the same scratch resistant qualities as glass and will protect against normal abrasion, however the film will need to be occasionally replaced as normal wear will cause the film to break down.
Will ClearPlex® remain adhered to the windshield?
The adhesive is strong enough that high-power car wash streams do not cause the film to lift from the windshield. When cleaning your vehicle and/or windshield, do not point high-pressure washer water directly at the windshield. Do not put the exit of the high-pressure washer water within three feet of the windshield. Use soft brushes or cloths to clean the windshield, and use the water to rinse the film. This will prolong the life of the scratch resistant coating.
Is ClearPlex® permanent?
No. ClearPlex® is a film that protects the windshield from harsh conditions that often break or chip standard windshields. Being a film, ClearPlex® should occasionally be removed and replaced to provide the best protection for the windshield. The need and timing to replace the film is dependent upon the miles driven and the conditions in which those miles are accumulated.
How is ClearPlex® removed or replaced?
ClearPlex® uses a unique adhesive that keeps the film adhered tightly to the windshield, but at the same time the adhesive is not permanent. If the Invisible Windshield Protection Film needs to be removed for any reason, it can be removed by using a semi-sharp instrument, such as a knife blade, key, etc., to lift up one corner of the film. Then, by pulling the film with constant pressure, the film will come off of the windshield. Any adhesive remaining on the windshield is removed with a basic soap and water washing of the windshield. New ClearPlex® can then be installed on the clean windshield.
Does ClearPlex® offer a warranty?
Yes. ClearPlex® Corporation offers an eighteen-month or 18,000 mile (whichever comes first) manufacturers defect warranty on all ClearPlex® products. Details of the warranty are found HERE.
