We use two types of materials for our screen protectors, the material chosen depends on whether the dashboard has a curved or flat surface. For flat screens we use a material called PET (a type of plastic). PET is extremely strong and scratch resistant. It is thin and flexible and is an excellent material for a dashboard screen protector. PET protectors are available in both ultra-clear and anti-glare finishes.
The other material we use is TPU (another type of plastic). TPU is perfect for dashboards that have a curved surface as it is flexible and retains its shape. We only currently supply TPU screen protectors in ultra-clear finish.
We are often asked if our screen protectors are ‘tempered glass’. The simple answer is no, they’re not. There are a few reasons why we don’t supply glass screen protectors…
- They are very expensive to produce in low numbers. A tempered glass mobile phone/tablet screen protector has been mass-produced, normally by tens of thousands. This helps to reduce production costs. We don’t produce anywhere near that number of screen protectors and therefore the cost of a glass screen protector for us would be extremely high and we simply couldn’t sell them for the price we currently supply our protectors for.
- Secondly, glass will only fix to a completely flat surface. Many motorcycle dashboards are not 100% flat and therefore a glass screen protector would not affix correctly.
