Custom Surface Protection Films and Tapes

Surface Protection and Masking

Surface protection is a value driven solution to protect goods from being damaged, resulting in problems for manufacturers, distributors, and retailers who must deal with the returns and dissatisfied customers. Protective films are used in a range of applications, such as metal finishing, industrial, transportation, white goods, and electronics to prevent harm to the products and save manufacturers money. Particularly sensitive materials, such as highly polished surfaces, stainless steel, glass, and mirrors, require these temporary barriers to maintain a flawless finish and resist stains from handling.

Applications of Protective Films

Appliances: Large and heavy products such as appliances pose an extra challenge to transport and install. Temporary protective films protect from scratching, marring, and contamination at every step. Packaging Protection: Customers expect their purchases to arrive in perfect condition. Many products pose a challenge in terms of shipping and prtoective films, Poly bagging, cushioning, and cold seal packaging are just some of the many creative solutions. Temporary films protect throughout all stages of processing and shipping to ensure pristine condition.

Automotive Protection: Protective film coatings are essential in protecting both exterior automotive services as well as interior surfaces. For example, temporary films can help prevent protect everything from delicate high-gloss interior trim and consoles to touch screens.
