Safety and security film
CPFilms of Martinsville, Va., a subsidiary of Solutia Inc., St Louis, created LLumar automotive safety and security film, a multilayered clear product that protects against break-ins and prevents flying glass shards from injuring passengers in side-impact collisions. It also supports side airbag system performance by keeping the airbags from being forced outward through shattered window openings. The film, applied to standard auto glass, comes in a solar-control version that blocks 99 percent of UVA and UVB rays. It is available through CPFilms' authorized dealer network.
