Industrial Surface Protection
Surface Armor protective films seal the magic into your products and projects.
Surface Armor protects your surfaces from a wide range of hazards posed by an equally wide range of processes and situations. As you already know, your product is exposed to a gauntlet of hazards as it works its way from development through various processes and then into the hands of your customers.
Hazards arise during:
The “General” classification covers a gamut of surface conditions. If your particular surface material hasn’t been specifically identified on this (or other pages) of our site, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a protective film that will work for your application … it just means that we either aren’t aware of the surface you need to protect or we didn’t happen to think of it when it came time to prepare the applications chart. Check out some of the insights in the How to Select a Protective Film and you will probably be able to identify a few films that you would like samples of for testing. Or, just give us a call. We’ll be happy to help.

This table is designed to assist you in selecting which Surface Armor products you might want to evaluate for your specific application. As there are many variables involved in the relationship between a protective film and the surface it is applied to, it is usually a good idea to test two or more samples on your specific surface(s) in all phases of the intended surface protection life cycle. This guide can serve as a starting point when requesting samples, which are FREE by the way.
Along the left side of the table you will find various Surface Armor tapes and films listed by their adhesive type, tack level and the material these products are made from.
Adhesive Type – This is the product identification number of the adhesive
Tack – Measured in ounces per lateral inch, this defines the level of “stickiness” of a particular adhesive. 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.
Material – This identifies the product substrate, itself (type of plastic / paper).
The top of the table lists the various surfaces to be protected, grouped by classification.
Give us a call (or email) to discuss various film options, adhesive characteristics, and how they might apply to your specific application. We can probably ship samples to you today.
