Protective Film & Tape for Plastics
Plastics are everywhere! This amazing material has been used in manufacturing for as long as most of us can remember, combining flexibility, durability and strength. It really is a miracle product. From large-scale flat sheet stock to molded containers, appliances and electronic devices, plastic has been there, done that. But to keep plastic surfaces safe, from the factory floor to the customer’s hands, careful handling is needed. Scratches, industrial solvents, painting mishaps and assorted contaminants can damage the finish, driving up costs and devaluing the product.
Hazards arise during:
Whether you’re dealing with polycarbonates, acrylics or polyesters, Surface Armor offers a range of custom-designed plastic protective films to meet your needs. Plastic protective films are available in the exact dimensions you require to cover everything from home electronics or office equipment to sheet or coil stock.
Types of Plastic Protective Films
Surface Armor will help you identify the optimum protective film for your particular application … the solution that maintains your customers’ confidence in the underlying quality of your products. Reference the following table for a variety of films that provide surface protection for plastics. For more detailed selection information give us a call, or review How to Select a Protective Film. Be sure to request FREE samples to evaluate for your application.
The headings at the top of the table identify the specific plastic protection films by listing the combination of adhesive type, tack and material used.
- Adhesive type – This is the product identification number of the adhesive used to attach the protective film to the plastic surface.
- Tack – Measured in ounces per lateral inch, this defines the amount of adhesive used and the resulting “stickiness” of the protective film. Because there are many variables at play, the tack level of most adhesives will be expressed as a range of values rather than a single, specific measurement.
- Film/Paper – This indicates the type of plastic or paper that the film is made of.
Each row of the table is then labeled with the type of plastic surface you want to protect.
Because of the many variables involved, it is a good idea to test a few different types of film on the plastic surface you are trying to protect. We would be happy to provide free samples of different plastic protective films, and can usually ship samples the same day.
