Paint protection film manufacturer XPEL Technologies Corp. introduced its XPEL ULTIMATE pre-cut Off-Road Lighting Protection kits at the International Off-Road & UTV Expo, which took place at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Ariz., Sept. 23-25.
XPEL offers pre-cut ULTIMATE paint protection film kits for UTV headlights and LED light bars for the 2014-17 Polaris RZR XP 1000. The company will soon be expanding its line to include film coverage for UTV body parts, headlight and light bar kits for the Yamaha YXR 1000R, Can-Am Maverick 1000R as well as other popular UTV models. These products will be sold exclusively via the company’s website at www.xpel.com.
Dewey Aguilera, XPEL’s southwest U.S. account manager, who tested the product at Glamis and other off-road events, is a professional racer that has participated in the SCORE Baja 500, SCORE Baja 1000 and Mickey Thompson Off-Road Racing Series. Aguilera formed the Ultimate Sandcar Challenge and was also the first promoter to race UTVs in stadium events. He was on hand at the expo to share with attendees his personal experiences using the product.
Developed to resist the rigorous abuse sustained in the off-road environment, XPEL’s new Off-Road Light Protection kits provide a superior protective barrier for UTV lighting that is exposed to the most extreme elements. The virtually invisible 8.5ml urethane film uses a clear coat and special elastomeric polymers that “self-heal” over time to naturally eliminate swirl marks and fine scratches, while offering a much easier-to-clean surface. The film’s low surface energy enables it to resist cracking and fading, while buffering punishment from gravel, rocks, insects and bird waste found in extreme environments.
“We applied our XPEL ULTIMATE film over a colorful wrap to protect the branding on my Polaris RZR 1000 XP body parts,” explained Aguilera. “Next, we contacted Vision X, which outfitted us with all their latest LED lights, including their new RZR headlights, to test our XPEL Paint Protection Film. We had great results from the testing, including zero light output loss.”
