Film Solutions Incorporated was founded in 2010 and seeks to provide out of the box solutions using protective, adhesive backed films. We were first introduced to protective films in 2003 while working with aftermarket accessory shops that carry and install “clear bras” (the common term used for paint protection film) on vehicles to protect the paint from damage by rocks, bugs, debris, and the elements.
It quickly became apparent that protective films could be used in a variety of different applications to protect finishes, such as phones, laptops, furniture and any other surface that needs protection. Through connections and relationships forged within the automotive paint protection film industry, we were able R&D a number of different films at the manufacturing level since late 2008.
The first product to be released by Film Solutions Inc is TRACWRAP, a protection film that was in testing through 2009 and showed promise by filling a market demand for a cheap, effective protection film that was a DIY (do-it-yourself) one-time use product.
Why we did TRACWRAP
We love professionally installed clear bras and have installed them for years, but we saw a huge need for a TEMPORARY product. After attending many track events, Auto X events, car shows, etc and seeing the classic blue painters tape everywhere or worse yet NO protection and rock chipped vehicles we realized that the auto industry needed a sister product to the long term clear-bra.
Our customers wanted something more temporary than professional clear bra products. They wanted to go to the racetrack for the weekend, or put film on their car while it was being towed. They wanted to protect their RV for short term trips since they only hit the road a few weeks out of the year. All we could find was 3Ms painters tape or super less expensive, thin “Saran Wrap” type films that provide little protection and can be tough to install and remove.
The industry needed a temporary product that provided the thicker protection than painters tape and the paper thin protection films but still provided an easy application that wasn’t as blaringly noticeable as the painters tape.
So, in 2009, we decided to put the power of paint protection in your hands. We made TRACWRAP with a special adhesive so you could pull it off in a matter of seconds without leaving bits of plastic or glue behind. We also made it tough, so it could withstand minor rock chips. We’re happy to give you a temporary product, similar to a clear bra. It prevents rock chips, installs quick and easy, and removes instantly.
