What is the difference between ClearPlex and DYNOflex Windshield Protection Film?

The windshield is arguably one of the most important parts of any vehicle. It accounts for nearly 20% of a vehicle’s structural integrity, shields occupants from debris, and acts as a barrier to keep everything (and everyone) inside the vehicle in the case of an accident. More recently, windshields have also been developed to calibrate with Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) that improve a driver’s ability to react to varied driving situations. Since windshields are integral to the overall safety and structure of your car, it is essential that they be kept in pristine condition. Windshield Protection Film is a virtually invisible multi-layer film that is applied to the exterior of a windshield to protect against a variety of road and environmental damages.

Benefits of Windshield Protection Films

  • Windshield Protection Film is incredibly resilient and flexible. It delivers enhanced strength for your windshield so debris can easily be deflected, dramatically reducing the occurrence of cracks, chips, and scratches, and ultimately maintaining its structural integrity.
  • It is also easier to clean off insects and stubborn tar from your windshield with windshield protection film. As a result of the advanced hydrophobicity of windshield film compared to bare glass, it stays cleaner a lot longer too.
  • Windshield protection film can save you from expensive windshield replacement costs, especially for luxury vehicles. And while you may not see the need to invest in windshield protection film for an economy vehicle (since the cost of windshield replacement tends to be lower) it is still a worthy investment, nonetheless. Some studies have even shown that replaced windshields can be significantly weaker and vulnerable to damage than OEM windshields. The process to replace a windshield involves a considerable amount of pressure placed on the window frame to get the old one out and put the new one in. Investing in windshield protection film to preserve your original windshield is far superior to going through the replacement process.
  • Another benefit of windshield protection film is improved UV rejection. Both ClearPlex and DYNOflex filter over 90% of harmful UV rays. This protects both you and your car’s interior from UV damage.

Overall, windshield protection film makes your driving experience safer and more comfortable. At First Detailing Studio we offer two windshield protection film options – ClearPlex and DYNOflex. They both deliver the many benefits discussed, but there are some distinct differences between the two products.

MADICO ClearPlex

The unique construction of MADICO ClearPlex Windshield Protection Film was the first of its kind on the market. Deemed the original optically clear windshield protection film, ClearPlex is a thin and flexible film that requires heat treatment to adhere to the glass surface. It is highly scratch resistant and significantly reduces the likelihood of road damage such as rock chips and bullseyes. The efficacy of ClearPlex is backed by a comprehensive warranty that guarantees it will not bubble, peel, crack, or yellow.


STEK DYNOflex Windshield Protection Film comes with a slightly higher price tag; however, it makes up for the price difference with exceptional performance. Its highly elastic multi-layer design is unique because it does not require any heat for application. DYNOflex only takes a certified professional 15 minutes to install – making it the fastest windshield protection film to install on the market. It also provides even clearer visual transparency, making it optically invisible.

DYNOflex is twice as thick as ClearPlex, making it even more resistant to damage. It’s specially engineered hydrogen-bonded polyurethane construction effectively disperses the shock of impact, whether from falling hail or a stray rock. STEK’s proprietary windshield film also delivers superior hydrophobicity. The weatherproof surface treatment effectively and efficiently repels water, snow, and ice.

It is vital for your safety and the integrity of your vehicle to keep your windshield in good condition. While there is always a chance that an incredibly large or sharp rock could damage your windshield, the benefit of windshield protection is that is radically reduces that chance.
