The SHELTER self-adhesive protectionMariposa effectis a transparent composite plywood with behavior viscoelastic.
SHELTER is able to to increasegreatly the impact resistance of carbon fiber composites or the metals on which it is applied.
Film thickness 0.6mm and width 55mm.
Ideal for bikes, cars, motorcycles, and many other uses!
Available in multiple lengths by choice.

This tapeprotectsfrom impactsdispersingenergy within one's own structure, resistsagainst abrasion and the most common solvents, it does not turn yellow and is not affected by normal washing of the bodywork but can be removed if necessary without leaving marksto the underlying paint.
SHELTER is the union of products and systems used in the aerospace sectors to protect the aesthetic and functional integrity of surfaces and parts exposed to accidental wear or impact.
It is very much conformableat room temperature, it does not require the use of heat sources to adapt it to medium three-dimensional surfaces and no specific equipment is required for the application, only cutters or scissors and a felt pad to facilitate its application.exerts and exerts uniform pressure.
Adherence to all surfaces is in accordance with AFERA 4001 standards,SHELTER is resistant to water and UV rays, can withstand temperatures ranging from -30C ° to + 130C °.
Occasional contamination with petrol, grease, oil, detergents does not alter its performance and duration.
Depending on the temperatures, the product may have variations in measurements tolerance +/- 10% on length and width.
The adhesion of Shelter is defined "semi-structural", therefore very strong but not permanent. After being applied, Shelter takes 8 hours before reaching optimal adhesion. Subsequently it is not therefore affected by the normal washing of the bicycle, but it can be removed - if necessary - without damage to the underlying paint.
The appThe Shelter statement does not require specific tools or procedures, only normal manual skills and patience:
The bicycle can be used immediately after applying Shelter, remembering that optimal adhesion is reached after 8 hours.
To remove the Shelter, slowly remove it from the surface taking care not to de-laminate it. In this way Shelter will not leave traces of glue, even after several years.
Shelter is transparent but does not yellow over time, thanks to its resistance to UV rays, a common cause of yellowing of other protective films, and thus also protects the paint of the underlying frame from discoloration.br />IMPORTANT: after Shelter removal there may be color differences betweenprotected and non-protected areas, in the case of fluorescent paints or bright colors.
The transmission of vibrational energy through any structure can be reduced by adding visco-elastic elements at some points. That's exactly what Shelter does, not only protecting rigid carbon frames from shocks but also reducing vibrations.
