We have carried Clearplex for a while now and it is really a great product – I really thought it was going to take off as soon as it came out. I guess more people don’t come in for ClearPlex because they don’t know about it.
It is a windshield protection film, similar to tinting film but with very little color differential. It still blocks UV light, keeping the car much cooler and protecting the interior materials from drying and fading. However, unlike window tinting film it is applied on the outside of the windshield.
The main function of ClearPlex is to protect the windshield from rock chips and road debris. Objects that would have chipped or cracked an untreated windshield leave only a small pin point scar on the film of a treated with ClearPlex film. It can also prevent what we call “road rash” – small chips, nicks and scratches that you can’t really fix or take care of once it happens. This can happen to any kind of vehicle that is logging a lot of miles.
I would recommend this for any vehicle that is on the road a lot, especially the highway. It can be especially useful for semi-trailer trucks, buses, municipality vehicles and construction equipment, where there would be a lot of dust and debris flying around. Clearplex is also great for leased vehicles – when it is time to return the vehicle, you remove the film and the windshield underneath is pristine. I would say it is excellent product if you just want to preserve the windshield on a nice car or truck.
Another advantage of ClearPlex is that it has a high bubble angle, which means rain and snow don’t stick as well, the water flies off the windshield similar to hte results you would see from Aquapel or RainX. But you have to remember it is a plastic you shouldn’t really run the windshield wipers without any moisture on the windshield and you have to have a good quality ice scraper or you could scratch the material
