Guide to choosing a protective film for glass

A protective film is an essential product for preserving the appearance and integrity of the glass, protecting it from scratches, chipping and discolouration, as well as used as a darkening agent and to avoid cleaning works thus speeding up activities. This type of film adheres to the glass, creating a transparent protective layer that increases its resistance to impact and weathering. In addition, glass protective film is easy to apply and requires no invasive work on the surface of the glass. 

There are different types of protective films for glass, each with specific characteristics depending on the type of glass and its intended use. Choosing the right protective film will therefore depend on the specific needs and type of use of the glass to be protected.

In this article, we will focus on Naster's Skin Glass protective film and discover the five indispensable features that a high-quality glass protective film must have.

5 indispensable features of protective glass films

The essential characteristics of glass protective films depend on their intended use. In general, a high-quality protective film must meet several characteristics, let's look at the top 5 together:

  1. Ease of installation and removal, a good glass protection film must be easy to install and remove by not chemically interacting with surfaces and not leaving out adhesive upon removal.
  2. Impact resistance must be able to withstand strong impact pressures without breaking or chipping. 
  3. Transparency, it is important that the film does not affect the transparency of the glass.
  4. UV resistance can help preserve the beauty of the interior. 
  5. It should last for a long time without the need for frequent replacement.

Glass protection film: the areas of application

Window protective film is a very versatile product and has applications in various sectors. For example, the automotive industry uses protective film to protect windshields and side windows from damage caused by stones or debris on the road. 

In spray Booths, it is used to carpet surfaces so that no major cleaning work has to be undertaken. It is, in addition, used to inspect what is happening inside the cabin itself.

In addition, the protective film is also used in the construction and architectural sectors to protect window panes from scratches and chips during the construction or renovation phase. The marine industry also makes use of protective film to protect boat windows from the weather and external stresses. In summary, protective glass film is a useful solution in many areas where glass may be exposed to damage or wear, providing longer life and effective surface protection.

Other areas where protective glass film finds application include the home appliance, solar panel and mirror industries. In all these cases, a protective film is an indispensable and easy-to-apply solution for protecting surfaces from external agents that could damage them.
