FAQ | WHAT IS CAPPED OR UNCAPPED PRODUCT

 


At NoChip™ Paint Protection Film Products we use only the best film on the market: 
3M™Scotchgard Paint Protection Film | PRO SERIES

 

WHAT IS CAPPED PRODUCT?

  • PRO SERIES 4.0 WITH CAP SHEET (948 Series)

  • All Paint Protection Film is manufactured with a clear polyethylene (PET) cap sheet.

  • The purpose of the cap sheet is to protect the self-healing coating until it polimerizes completely during the manufacturing process.  This process gives the film a completely smooth surface, thus ensuring perfect gloss and a flawless surface.  

  • 948 Series roll products have the cap sheet still on. 

  • Leaving the Cap Sheet on protects the film during storage, transportation and handling. 

  • At NoChip™ we use only 948 Series Capped product to make all our pre-cut kits to ensure the highest quality end result.

  • We manually uncap the product, and inspect it prior to producing your kit. 

  • The cap sheet must be removed from the film prior to installation on your vehicle.

  • If you order capped product by-the-foot, we will manually uncap the product in the process of measuring it out for you.  We generally will do this for two reasons: 
    1. To inspect the product for top quality.
    2. Because it can be difficult for you to uncap it yourself on-site without damanging the film, unless you have a large clean flat surface available to you.

WHAT IS UNCAPPED PRODUCT?

  • PRO SERIES 4.0 WITHOUT CAP SHEET (960 Series)

  • All PPF is manufactured with a clear polyethylene (PET) cap sheet.  

  • 960 Series products have the cap sheet removed.  It is simply 948 Series that has been uncapped at the factory before shipping. 

  • Since the cap sheet needs to be removed from the film prior to installation, having it removed is a good thing.  However, when the product is uncapped and rolled for an extended period of time, the product tends to develop Haze Bands, which is not a good thing. 
  • Please be advised of the 3M Technical Bulletin on Haze Bands that can result from shipping and storage of uncapped rolled product.
  • At NoChip™ we use only capped product to make all our pre-cut kits to ensure you will have no issues with haze bands.
