SEMA Show Opens Today

October 30th, 2012 by Editor

Attendees gathered in the North Hall to view the latest restyling products on display at SEMA.

The North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center was packed today as SEMA Show attendees walked the aisles to visit with film representatives and learn about the latest products on display. The North Hall, which houses automotive restyling products, contained many new film products for attendees to view.

One of the more unique products on the floor was Tint Slime, created by Guardian Graphics, which exhibited with Global Window Films. The “slime” replaces the baby shampoo typically used in film placement but does not use the ingredient lanolin to prevent clogging in the spray when applying the soap and water mixture.

Another of today’s notable products was a self-healing film displayed by Xpel. The film comes in two varieties: Ultimate, a shiny-finish film, and Stealth, a matte-, or satin-, finish film.

Alan Hughey of Jiffy Steamer noted that SEMA is an excellent venue to market his company’s long-lasting steamer.

“What we want to do is grow our dealer base,” said Hughey.

“We’ve tried to discontinue some (steamer) models but that’s hard to do when you’re still getting orders for that item,” he added. “We want people to say our steamer works for 30 or 40 years.”
