FAQs

Some Common Questions We're Asked

Why is ExoShield made using PET?

PET  is known for its high stability and durability compared to other materials. Although it means a longer installation time because it needs to be hand-formed to the windshield, we believe that PET is a higher quality and more durable technology which is ultimately better for the customer.

Does ExoShield require any special maintenance?

ExoShield GT3 does not require the application of any special coatings or treatments to function properly. Applying coatings to the surface of ExoShield may extend the lifespan of the film, (check out our blog post for a list of approved coatings) but it's not required!

What makes ExoShield GT3 longer lasting than other films?

ExoShield GT3 was formulated with our Endurance Class Nanocoating which is built to last in all climates. To get this longer lifetime, we optimized ExoShield GT3 to have excellent inter-layer adhesion, superior resistance to UV degradation and higher chemical resistance.

Why is ExoShield's warranty longer than other products?

It's pretty simple - our warranty is longer because ExoShield GT3 is built to last longer. We put every single batch of ExoShield GT3 through rigorous testing to make sure it can stand up to most driving conditions. Plus, our warranty doesn't require you to reapply any coatings or treatments to the windshield.
