Top Three in
International Window Film Association’s PPF Competition Placed using Nano-Fusion® PPF

Arlington, TX, March 6th, 2014

The International Window Film Association (IWFA) hosted its first membership-oriented conference last weekend in Arlington, Texas. The event consisted of three competition categories members could participate in; Architectural, Automotive, and Paint Protection Films. The Paint Protection Film (PPF) competition was judged based on the overall quality of the installation, factoring in speed, accuracy and appearance: and clearly, the film used is a strong contributor to installation success, as all three top contenders used Nano-Fusion.

Nine competitors took part in the PPF tournament, which spanned the course of two days. At the end of the competition, Steve Perez of Invisishield of Huston, TX, Nico Harriman of Service Group Distribution of Fullerton, CA; and Mark Merrill of Eclipse Solar Control of Gunter, TX took first, second and third prize, respectively. All three took home prize money and bragging rights, and the first place winner also received a 4-foot tall trophy.

Both the first and second place finishers entered the competition using Nano-Fusion PPF, and committed to using Nano-Fusion PPF throughout the rounds of competition. Mark Merrill of Gunter, TX, the third place finalist, originally began the competition with another paint protection film product, and claimed during his first round of the competition that the “film scuffed really badly, and it’s not really clear coated even though it claims to be, even after using the new squeegee that was supposed to make it better”. Mark then switched to Nano-Fusion PPF during his second round of the competition, and commented that the film was “easy to install, had a slick top coat, and installed with no problems”.

Nano-Fusion PPF, a product of CCL Design, is becoming a favorite product among installers and car owners worldwide. For more information on this product, visit
