Main Features

Pros need crystal clear, thick and heavy duty laminates with a permanent adhesive.

We developed Pro-Shield™ as the solution for shroud and air box areas on MX bikes that receive a tremendous amount of abrasion from boots & knee braces.

Many professional shops choose to use the combination of Convex® High-Bond with Pro-Shield for the whole bike because they can mold the Pro-Shield to almost any shape with the aid of a heat gun.

Pro-Shield comes in 7 and 12 mil. That means that when you print with 6 mil Convex®, and use Pro-Shield 12 mil., your result is an 18 mil thick decal. This provides an extremely durable barrier for your graphics.

Use the thicker laminate for the areas receiving the most abrasion. Unless the consumer knows how to apply Pro-Shield laminated graphics with a heat gun, use Convex laminate and leave the Pro-Shield for the Pro applicators.
