Clearshield® Pro ACTIV™ by Solar Gard is a revolutionary advancement in paint protection film (PPF) technology. This innovative film product is designed to provide the ultimate balance between instant self-healing and robust scratch resistance. Unlike other protective film on the market, the ACTIV™ technology is immediately triggered once the film is scratched or damaged. This removes the need for heat or water to trigger, making this protective film a truly self-healing paint protection film.

Key Features:

  • Active Self-Healing Technology: Advanced polymer technology is instantly activated upon scratching or damage, eliminating the need for heat or water to initiate the healing process.
  • Hydrophobic, Stain-Resistant Topcoat: Effortlessly repels water, mud, and grime, while protecting against stains from bug splatter and bird droppings.
  • Luxury Appearance: Maintains a glossy, just-waxed look, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your vehicle.
  • Comprehensive Warranty Coverage: Enjoy peace of mind with a 12-year warranty against yellowing, hazing, cracking, peeling, and molding.
  • Increased Resale Value: Preserve your car's pristine condition, potentially boosting its resale value.
  • SPF 285+ Protection: Prevent UV damage and fading of your vehicle's factory paint.
