WHICH COLOR IS RIGHT FOR ME?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is the difference between 20mm and 40mm clear film?
20 mm - Strong, perfectly invisible protection for lights and lenses. Keep your lights looking new for years and years.No more yellow, hazy lights from sand blasting and rocks chips. Very flexible and pliable for very rounded/curved light applications.
Adhesive backed for easy and very forgiving application to any surface. Great heat dissipation properties for those high heat/intensity lighting. Handles up to 300-degree temps.
40 mm - Our thickest and strongest film yet. 1/16th thick! Perfectly clear, invisible protection for lights and lenses. Keep your lights looking new for years and years. No more yellow, hazy lights from sand blasting and rocks chips.
Adhesive backed for easy and very forgiving application to any surface. Excellent protection for flat and lower temperature lenses. Handles up to 300-degree temps.
Can the film be removed without damage?
Lamin-x film can be easily removed without damage to the light or original paint. Upon initial application, the film can be pulled back up and reapplied numerous times if not installed correctly. The film and adhesive is forgiving enough for this. Once the film is settled (appx 48-72 hours) the product is not considered to be reusable. Upon removal warm the film and lift off slowly.
Are your colored films legal on headlights for street use?
Our colored films may not be legal for street use on primary lighting. An off-road disclosure is recommended. Please check your state or local laws before application. Installation of colored Lamin-x Films on your primary lights is done so at your own peril. None of our films produce a blue or red light when lit.
I just installed the film on my lights. There are still some tiny bubbles and milkiness underneath and creases/ripples on top of the film. What should I do?
Once the film settles any small bubbles/milkiness or application creases will disappear. Lamin-x is a breathable PVC vinyl film. Tiny air pockets will evaporate. The creases/ripples caused by application cards or your finger will smooth out once settled and warmed.
What's the difference between your film and your competitors?
Numerous things make our product more appealing than others, such as:
- Our films are impact resistant and a softened PVC vinyl film. Most competitor films are not impact resistant and have a top-coated urethane film.
- Installation errors can be corrected and repaired upon installation.
- Lamin-x is breathable for quicker curing and allows for newly applied paint to fully cure.
- Resists yellowing with minor yearly maintenance.
- Multiple colors and thicknesses available for multiple uses.
- Competitors only have clear films. No colors available.
