Our Paint Protection products are made from VentureShield Paint Protection Film which is an eight mil thick (.008") clear Urethane film. Our patterns offer the consumer an invisible barrier between their automobile and anything Mother Nature can throw at it – literally!
VentureShield is a clear, thermoplastic urethane film made from 100% aliphatic resin. It's ability to resist yellowing, and offer the highest level of abrasion resistance is unparalleled in the industry. The VentureShield protective film requires no special care or maintenance. VentureShield is optically clear and guaranteed for LIFE against yellowing or cracking due to UV exposure. The protection remains invisible, allowing the manufacturer's aesthetics to shine through unaffected.
The film is approved by major Automotive Manufacturers such as Ferrari, GM, Ford and Nissan to withstand freezing temperatures, extreme heat, acidic oils and gasoline, along with attacks by stones and other abrasive elements.
There's two different ways to have the Paint Protection installed: computer cut and hand cut. There's benefits to both ways, but just like everything else; negatives too.
Pro: Hand Cut allows the installer to use minimal material off the Paint Protection role; therefore limiting waste and thus keeping the cost down.
Pro: Hand Cut provides the opportunity to paint protect custom bumpers and older vehicles that are not in the system used by the plotters.
Con: Hand Cut templates are basically cut out on the vehicle itself and will score the paint slightly. This won't by obvious unless the protection is removed or altered.
Con: Hand Cut installs take a lot more time due to what's involved.
Pro: Computer cut kits usually fit nearly perfect and require minimal alterations.
Pro: Computer cut kits significantly reduce the install time due to a lot less prep and customization.
Con: Computer cut attempts to limit waste but due to plotters having margins set for their rollers, doesn't allow for the same outcome; thus using more material and costing more in the end.
Con: Computer cut is limited to mostly stock OEM bumpers and hoods, fenders, mirrors.etc (although usually has all models including premium packages).
