What are the different types of Clear-Coat?

Our flagship Clear-Coat products protect not just the screen, but the entire device including the front, back, and sides. Clear-Coat offers scratch protection that stands up to anything!

  • Clear-Coat Matte: Features all characteristics of Clear-Coat Original with added anti-glare and anti-fingerprint technology.
  • Clear-Coat Privacy: Features Dual Anti-Glare and Privacy Technology to keep your device safe from prying eyes.

What is Clear-Coat made of?

Our Clear-Coat products are crafted from military-grade polyurethane film, a durable and scratch-resistant material that measures less than 1/100th of an inch thick and features an adhesive backing. Polyurethane films are commonly utilized in industries such as automotive, aviation, and marine to protect against damage from rocks, sand, and everyday wear and tear.

Will Clear-Coat hurt my device?

Quite the contrary! We made Clear-Coat to protect your devices from just about anything. The adhesive we use is semi-permanent, meaning it’s difficult to remove by accident but easy to remove if you wish. Keep your gear safe with Clear-Coat!

Does Clear-Coat make my device waterproof?

No, unfortunately, it does not. While Clear-Coat provides extensive coverage for your device, it cannot fully seal all seams. Therefore, water can still penetrate through these areas.

How long does Clear-Coat last?

Clear-Coat lasts up to a year for smartphones with normal usage and two to three years for tablets and notebooks. If anything goes wrong with your Clear-Coat, for any reason, you can obtain a replacement under our Lifetime Replacement program.

Does Clear-Coat hide old scratches?

Yes, Clear-Coat helps hide those old scratches! It’s never too late, no matter how used your device is. Without Clear-Coat, it will get worse. So why not hide the old scratches and prevent new ones with Clear-Coat?!

Does Clear-Coat hide fingerprints?

Yes! Devices show grease, smudges, and fingerprints easily. Clear-Coat is resistant to them and will help keep your devices looking new, and our Clear-Coat Matte makes fingerprints virtually non-existent. Stop constantly wiping your phone on your shirt to clean it and start preventing fingerprints with Clear-Coat!

Where is Clear-Coat made?

Clear-Coat Original and Matte are made in the USA. Each and every piece is assembled, inspected, and shipped by a team member in our Philadelphia, PA facility.

Why don't you have a Clear-Coat for my product?

Don’t worry! We can design Clear-Coat for virtually anything. If you don’t see your product offered in our catalog, you can request a design. Head on over to the Request a Product form to submit your model.

Will Clear-Coat change the look and feel of my device?

At 1/100th of an inch thick most people can’t even see it once it’s applied! Choose Clear-Coat Original for a glossy finish that perfectly matches your screen or other shiny devices, Matte film for surfaces that don’t have any gloss to them, or Privacy with a matte finish and 30° side-view protection. You could also use a combination of our films to match your device and lifestyle perfectly.

How can I clean my Clear-Coat after it's installed?

To clean your device with Clear-Coat installed, we recommend the following:

  • Turn off your device and unplug it.
  • Start by removing any dust from the screen with a dry microfiber cloth.
  • For fingerprints and smudges, spray glass cleaner or a non-streaking cleaner onto a dust-free side of your microfiber cloth.
  • Wipe the surface and corners, being careful not to let any excess moisture wick from the wipe or cloth.
  • Allow the screen to air dry.
  • If any residual streaks remain, use a microfiber cloth to buff them away.
Does Clear-Coat work with hard cases?

Clear-Coat works great with cases – but why would you use Clear-Coat AND a case? Your case traps dirt, sand, and dust inside that causes damage to your device every time you take it off. Clear-Coat keeps your device looking good as new by adding an extra layer in-between your device and the case. We even custom-cut our products to ensure 100% compatibility with virtually all cases.

What does “self-healing” mean?

Self healing means the film is capable of healing fine scratches simply by warm temperatures. This means that you may notice some dents or scratches in your film, and a few hours later they are gone – like magic.

Does Fusion cover the curves?

Yes! Just like our Clear-Coat films, Fusion impact protection covers curves so your device has the extra protection it deserves.

What is Fusion made of?

Fusion impact protection is our patented film that consists of three layers of unique impact resistant materials. If you’d like to learn more, please read our blog post here.

What are the different types of Style Skins?

Style Skins offer personalization for all your devices and are decorative skins that seamlessly change the look and feel to make it yours.

View our Style Skins Studio to see how our current lineup will transform your devices.

What are Style Skins made of?

Style Skins are made of architectural-grade material designed to last for years. They are strong and durable, yet very thin and add no bulk.

How hard is it to install our films and decorative skins?

The best part about our global network of Mobile Outfitters locations is that you’ll never have to install our films or decorative skins! Our professional installers will ensure the products you choose are installed perfectly on your devices and will be there to back them up with our Lifetime Replacement program.

Does Clear-Coat damage the oleophobic coating on my phone?

No – rest assured that Clear-Coat will not damage the oleophobic coating, or any other coatings, on your phone or screen.

Can I take off Clear-Coat and reapply later?

No – once Clear-Coat is installed, you can not reapply it again later. The adhesive we use is semi-permanent, meaning it’s difficult to remove by accident but easy to remove if you wish.

You can always get a brand new replacement Clear-Coat by visiting one of our Mobile Outfitters locations, or filling out a form online.

How do I uninstall Clear-Coat?

Using your finger, start at a corner and begin to peel the film up. Once you get it started, get a tight grip on the film and slowly pull it off of your device. If there is any remaining dust or residue, simply spray a paper towel or microfiber cloth with our cleaning solution or glass cleaner, and wipe your device.

Can I return Mobile Outfitters’ products for a refund or exchange?

Many of our locations offer a 7-day satisfaction guarantee – if you are unhappy with your product for any reason, you may return to that location for a replacement or exchange. After 7 days, you can obtain a replacement under our Lifetime Replacement program at any time, as many times as you would like.

Please contact the location where you made your purchase to discuss your return. Click here to see a list of locations and contact information. Because all of our locations are independently owned and operated, the Mobile Outfitters corporate office is unable to look up your order information and process returns for purchases made at a Mobile Outfitters retail location.

NOTE: If for some reason you are unable to resolve your issue with the location which you purchased your Mobile Outfitters product, please contact us.
