Protection film packaging is plastic sheets that can be added to a window or other glass surfaces. They can be attached to either the inside or outside of a home, and they come in a range of colors and styles. Usually made from vinyl or another type of plastic, these films will keep the glass from shattering if something hits it, but they will allow the glass to break and fall out.

Protection film packaging can be added on either the inside or outside of a home as protection against vandalism and other trouble that may come their way. Made from thin vinyl, these films can come in many different colors and styles. The film will keep the glass intact even if someone were to strike it with something or hit it very hard, but the film allows for the glass to break and fall out.

Different types of protection films


Protection film can be made using several different materials but the most common include:

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate)

This is one of the most commonly used raw materials where production volume and quality have been perfected through years of metallurgical research and development away from harsh chemicals such as ammonia or sulphuric acid which are often used in the production of PET bottles. It is highly transparent, scratch-resistant, and offers a long-term protection solution for devices with high wear factors such as car windscreens.

Cellulose Diacetate (CA)

One of the most commonly used raw materials thanks to its affordability and easy availability which is why it is also known as ‘C-film’. This material has been used since 1939 when “Avery” first managed to mass-produce common household insulation which was later followed up by extremely popular kitchen lining during World War II. CA films are tough yet flexible while offering excellent clarity at similar levels to glass allowing them to be worked into all sorts of shapes without any noticeable difference in quality or performance. They are also quite resistant to chemicals when protected by an outer coating which makes them perfect for devices that are often exposed to harsh elements such as photocopiers and printers.


Unlike PET materials, Polyethylene Terephthalate film can be made using a variety of different methods resulting in vastly different results. It is usually very strong while offering good clarity and scratch resistance but it is also more difficult to work with than other materials due to its stiffness and lower elasticity compared to CA films. They are relatively easy to clean making them good value for money especially if you want the ultimate performance levels possible from a protection film packaging.

Benefit for using protection film packaging

The most popular reason to use protection film packaging is that it protects the car`s original paint job from scratches and scuffs.

Protection film packaging is also useful for car repair shops because it can be used to cover and protect cars before a repaint in order to prevent damage to an existing paint.


1. After the installation of window panes the next step would be applying protection films. Protection film packaging offers excellent scratch and abrasion resistance properties. It protects glass surfaces from dust, dirt, grease, nicks, small stones, or any other things accordingly which may cause damage to glazing if not applied. A properly installed window film will block out 99% of harmful ultraviolet up to 99% UVB and 95% UVA.


2. Vehicle window tinting is often used to protect the interior of a car from strong sunlight, reducing the temperature inside and preventing heat-related illnesses such as sunstroke or heat exhaustion. It is a common accessory in many countries, especially those with a large landmass and/or high temperatures, where even tempered glass windows would reach dangerously high temperatures.

This reduces strain on the vehicle’s air conditioning system and inhibits surface temperatures so that passengers can travel comfortably and safely. In some regions tinted windows are also mandatory for safety reasons; dark colors make it hard to see into an unattended vehicle. For example, in Australia, they are required by law to be fitted to new vehicles that are sold at retail.

There are many reasons why manufacturers and consumers use protection film. Protection of our environment and consumer’s health is the main reason why protection films are applied.


Protection film for car windows: The windows in a vehicle consist of special glass which offers good optical properties while being transparent to let in light. But this type of glass offers very poor resistance to mechanical stresses, particularly when exposed to sunlight over several years (UV radiation). In the case of an accident, it will often shatter into tiny cubes instead of fragmenting into large pieces as one would expect from tempered glass. This is because the stress caused by extreme temperature differences or by hitting against obstacles leads to fissuring along planes within the material which grows under the influence of the temperature gradient until the glass shatters.


Protection film for display screens: Protection films for display screens make it possible to protect sensitive surfaces such as glass or plastic from scratches, dust, and dirt. Whatever the type of damage, whether caused by regular wear and tear or accidental abuse, protection films are an ideal solution for making your products more resistant to external factors which can damage them. They will also allow you to keep your products in perfect condition over several years.


Aesthetically pleasing:   The use of protection film is very widespread in car manufacturing. This is because once applied to a window, it helps its optical properties considerably (by reducing reflection) without affecting transparency even when applied to large areas such as entire windscreens. It also has little effect on the sensitivity of touch screens. This is because protection films for display screens are perfectly transparent when there is no voltage applied, offering more or less the same visibility as bare glass.


Accessories: The application of a protective film helps reduce scratches from daily usage and as such is a great accessory to have especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Protection films also help increase your device’s life span by preventing wear and tear that you would normally be exposed to while using it on a daily basis without any protective measures in place. Protection films can be cut to size based on your exact needs which makes them easy to get rid of if or when they need replacing. They are not designed to leave on devices when not needed so removal is quick and easy when it is time to clean your screen.


Protection against chemical vapors: Protection films for car windows are a great way of protecting children from the potentially dangerous elements in cars such as glass and sharp metal edges which pose a choking hazard, not to mention protection from UV radiations off-set by window tinting which has been found to have negative effects on health. For display screens, they offer perfect protection against gas emissions from common household equipment such as photocopiers or printers which contain ozone-depleting chemicals used to speed up the drying process of inkjet printers but can often be harmful if inhaled over an extended period of time.


Environmentally conscious:   The use of protection film does not leave any sticky residue on devices unlike some other protection measures such as screen protectors which often leave a nasty oily residue behind due to the use of adhesives.


Resistance: Protection film can be made harder using a surface treatment process that is capable of increasing its resistance by up to six times while still remaining perfectly transparent when there is no voltage applied. This makes them perfect for protecting display screens from scratches caused by keys and coins in your pocket or bag, not to mention damage from sharp objects. It also protects against common household chemicals used in many household appliances like photocopiers and printers. Another advantage is that they are designed with touch screens in mind so working with them feels natural and comfortable just like using the bare glass touchscreen itself once applied correctly. They are also reasonably easy to clean so getting a streak-free finish is possible with the right technique.


Full range of strengths:   Protection films are available in many different grades, each offering downside as well as upside depending on your exact needs and usage pattern. Some are more resistant than others while some offer a better look and feel which may be preferable for certain applications.


The protection film packaging is often used to protect the surface of expensive and/or fragile products from scratching, damaging, or being stained by contact with other surfaces. Protection film can also be applied for decorative purposes, such as creating a color-accented design on an otherwise plain product or creating a matte/glossy finish to a product.

A sheet of protection film will prevent the glass from shattering if it is hit with a projectile traveling at speeds as high as 50 miles per hour or more. However, the glass will break and fall out. This fact makes certain characters in movies seem unrealistic when they try to defend themselves by raising their hands against a gunshot; even though the window would likely remain intact, it would definitely shatter.
