AbstractA laminated, adhesive-backed polycarbonate resin system, to protect the windshield glass of a passenger car, truck, bus, etc., which includes a multi-layering of thin polycarbonate film that is non-permanently bonded to, preferably, the entire outer surface area of a motor vehicle's windshield glass, is disclosed. The non-permanent bonding is preferably accomplished by use of a pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side of the polycarbonate film. For use upon an automobile, an owner or driver of an automobile would remove a wax film, or other adhesive-protector, from a first layer of polycarbonate, thereby exposing the adhesive for the first layer. The individual would then, preferably by pressure-sensitive means, apply the adhesive surface of the first layer of the polycarbonate to the outer surface of a motor vehicle windshield. As the top layer of the polycarbonate layer system, which is exposed directly to the elements, becomes worn due to the use of the automobile on a day-in-day-out basis, after a reasonable time, the owner of the automobile would simply peel back the top (last) layer of polycarbonate film in order to expose a new layer of polycarbonate film.
