Can I get some opinions on the clear shield product? My boss is looking into expanding into this particular product along with tint and bedliners/truck accessories. We are going to try it out on my '03 Neon to see how easy it is to apply, ect. Any feedback is appriciated. Thanx!

Clearshield is a trade mark name of Bekaert and can also be used to describe paint protection film by any other name... though they may not care for it.

I have installed Avery, Venture, 3M, LLumar and Clearshield just to get a feel for these products and the handling differences. Like different window film structures each have there own installation, optical and adhesion characteristics.

LLumar stretches from here to China and pretty much retains its optical clarity, has its challenges because of the clarity in material and adhesive and needs regular surface maintenance using a quality wax...

Venture acts in a similar fashion to LLu's film with their updated version, has been reported to creep at edges, yet does not stretch quite the distance compared with LLu's... mild orange peel to the adhesive (for hiding stress or pressure points from installation handling). Needs regular surface maintenance using a quality wax...

Avery and 3M are similar in stretch characteristics, but differ in adhesion and are the only PPF's with a top coat to seal the product against grime absorption (it still occurs, just at a slower rate)... moderate orange peel to adhesive.

and Clearshield, I found, to be stiff, rigid, smells to high heaven and was the most difficult to remove without residual adhesive remaining behind on the paint. Moderate to serious orange peel to adhesive. Needs regular surface maintenance using a quality wax...

My :shock
