XPEL’s FUSION PLUSTM line includes:
FUSION PLUSTM PAINT & PPF
When applied to paint and paint protection film, the slick ceramic coating helps prevent oxidation, loss of gloss, UV damage, bug impacts, color fading and paint chalking. The easy-to-clean coating reduces cleaning time and promotes a freshly washed appearance.
FUSION PLUSTM WHEEL and CALIPER
Wheels and brake calipers are subject to extreme and constant heat cycles from road friction and brake usage. Frequent contact with water, mud, debris, and particulates can cause damage to the finish of wheels and calipers. Once professionally applied, FUSION PLUS WHEEL and CALIPER bonds to wheels and brake components for long-lasting protection.
FUSION PLUSTM PLASTIC AND TRIM
Faded exterior plastic accents and trim pieces can negatively impact a vehicle’s appearance. FUSION PLUS PLASTIC and TRIM provides durable ceramic protection that helps protect plastic and trim components from environmental contaminant staining and fading.
FUSION PLUSTM UPHOLSTERY
The interior of a daily driver, family car or work truck can fade and wear as much as the exterior. FUSION PLUS UPHOLSTERY helps protect carpet, fabric, leather, and vinyl surfaces. Featuring a unique formula, it helps retain the factory feel and finish with protection from permanent staining and fading.
FUSION PLUSTM GLASS
Optimum visibility is paramount for safe driving. FUSION PLUS GLASS, is a hydrophobic clear protective coating that helps keep glass surfaces cleaner and protects against contaminant staining.
FUSION PLUSTM MARINE
Direct sunlight, aquatic organisms, bacteria and salt deposits take a serious toll on watercraft. FUSION PLUS MARINE treats surfaces above the waterline and combat the harsh effects of the marine environment and waterborne contaminants.
