Protective Film for Glass
Surface Armor’s protective films for glass seal in the magic. Surface Armor protects your glass and window 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 table below can assist you in selecting the protective films that you would like to evaluate for your particular application. We highly encourage sampling two or more films to ensure finding that optimum film that performs to your expectations and removes cleanly when no longer needed. Note that interior rated films do not have UV light inhibitors built into them and could adhere too strongly if exposed to sunlight for lengthy periods of time. Request exterior rated film samples for products that will be exposed to direct sunlight.
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.
