PRI 2013: Optic Armor Performance Windows Adds More Applications

DSC_4527Optic Armor boasts a growing catalog of windows designed for street cars and racing vehicles that can also be catered to custom applications, featuring some impressive optical clarity, chemical and scratch resistance inside and out, significant weight loss compared to factory glass, and strength light years ahead of OEM windows. It all adds up to a product that’s virtually bulletproof, and a perfect match with the racing industry.

To achieve this ultra-strong product, Optic Armor applies a hard coat to the raw polycarbonate sheet, which is part of a proprietary (and top secret) forming process. (They could tell you but then they’d have to kill you).


Features of Optic Armor Performance Windows:

  • Highly Scratch & Chemical Resistant
  • Can Be Cleaned With Standard Glass Cleaner
  • Excellent Water Shedding Capabilities
  • The Best In Optical Clarity
  • Shatterproof
  • Flexible
  • 50%-75% Lighter than glass
  • Genuine Polycarbonate
  • Superior Proprietary Coating

This year the Performance Windows people have added products for the Jeep JK, ’99-’04 Lightning trucks with a promise that some are coming for G-bodies and C5/C6 Corvettes. In addition to those applications, the company offers three-grades of drop-in blackout windows in terms of tint, starting with their standard clear windows, then moving into 20%, and finally 30%.

Here at PRI, Optic Armor has a sample of their drop-in blackout windows designed for the 2010 and later Chevrolet Camaro, which is just one of the many current direct-replacement offerings. Other applications include 1993-2002 Camaros, 79 and later Ford Mustangs, C4-C6 Corvettes, 2008 and later dodge Challengers, later model Porsches, and Dodge Vipers. The company has several other makes and models in the pipeline, and along with their made-to-fit windows, also sells sheets of material that are suited well to street rods, race cars, and other uses.
