- Rocker panels
- Door edges, handles, and steps
What are Self-Healing Films?
Self-healing films represent the cutting edge of modern protection film technology. These films, as the name suggests, have the ability to heal themselves from scratches and surface damage.
With self-healing films, you will see scratches disappear right before your eyes.
How Do Self-Healing Films Work?
Typically, these films are composed of 3 layers. The top layer’s low surface energy urethane clear coat employs elastomeric polymers, which are designed to eliminate staining, contamination and surface scratches. The thicker polyurethane layer beneath that is formulated to have excellent memory when stretched over the vehicle’s surface. The final layer is the adhesive; ultra clear acrylic copolymer is specially formulated to have good tack on the painted surface, rework-ability and remove-ability.
The top coat is able to smooth itself out to heal scratches and scuffs with a gentle application of heat.
