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.
