The same year, they developed the first Safety Film, in cooperation with the U.S. State Department. In 1980, Madico introduced films with a protective Scratch Resistant Coating. They were also the first to come out with a Color Stable automotive film. To this day, Madico continues to be on the cutting edge of technology and innovation in the window film industry.
