CCL Design shows attendees its new Nano-Fusion film

This year’s SEMA show had no signs of slowing down on day two. Between packed booths and hands on demos it was easy to see why Vegas was the place to be on

Wednesday, as there was a little bit of everything for attendees.

New Technology

CCL Design let its attendees have a hands-on experience by testing out its new Nano-Fusion paint protection film (PPF).  Its clear layer helps protect against road debris, stones and salt while keeping the vehicle’s color intact, according to the company. Eliminating the need for touch-ups and paint detailing is what makes this film stand out.

Mutoh America Inc. took a different approach to technology by showcasing its new UV printer.

Mutoh America Inc.’s new UV printer has finished plates in under 2 minutes.

“It’s so quick to print and we can use it on a variety of surfaces. What’s really cool about it is the instant drying time, so as soon as the ink is on the surface it’s dry within seconds. I definitely see this avenue growing on the printing side of the industry,” Manuel Ramos, Mutoh America Inc. western regional sales engineer, said.

Thinking Security

Solar Gard noticed the shift for security film after several school districts started seeking them out.

“We saw the trend in safety and security window films, so our company makes film specifically for that market. Not only does it protect against light and heat, but you can also easily view the outside while inside,” Kendall Combs, Saint-Gobain thin films general manager, said.
