We will introduce SELF-RESTORING CLEAR which repairs scratch during use of the product and maintains brand-new-like beauty.

1. Clear for protecting surface and keeping beauty of plastic products which is easy to be scratched.

1. SELF-RESTORING CLEAR which solves problem of scratch used for the product.

This SELF-RESTORING CLEAR is Clear that obscures surface scratch marks and abrasion flaws caused by using product by its self-repairing function of the printed ink layer and maintains brand-new conditions.
