Surface Protection

Surface protection films are designed to protect a wide range of
materials including; painted or polished metal, plastic, carpet, optical films, laminates and almost any other surface that requires protection. Our temporary masking films adhere to and protect your critical surfaces during fabrication, assembly, shipping and storage.

A complete line of surface protection films designed to
protect your critical surfaces from scratching, marring, and abrasions.

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) - Our most popular film is available in 1.5 mil to 10 mils. This film type is commonly used for general surface protection applications ranging from painted metal applications to window protection film. Common processing that this film can handle after application includes: Roll Forming, Stamping, and Break Forming.

Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE) - Doing some die-cutting, sawing or routing die cutting? This film will process and cut better in these applications than most LDPE films.

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) - A stiffer, more brittle film commonly used for engraving stock.

Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) - For those that like to torture our surface protection films, this is your product. Superior elongation and tensile strength make this film well suited for light drawing applications, and severe roll forming applications. LLDPE also has superior puncture resistance.

Co-Extruded Films - Co-extrusion means that as the film is blown or extruded, more than one layer of film is extruded into the final product. Interesting performance characteristics can be achieved by doing this. For example: (a high density film core with two layers of Low Density on the outside give us the stiff film of HDPE with the formability characteristics of the LDPE film). Or how about a black and white film resistant to the sun's UV rays?

UV Protective - UV additive extruded right into the polyethylene film can give extra protection for outdoor applications while keeping the film from becoming brittle over time. Typical application: Window masking film.

Low Gel Count Films - Gels occur when the raw material polyethylene resin pellets are not fully melted in the extrusion process. Lower gel films can be used for more critical applications that may include high gloss soft surfaces that could potentially be damaged if a gel is pressed into the surface as it is applied, or in a tight wound roll or a heavy pallet of sheeted product.

Tinted Films - Tinted films can be used for a variety of reasons. Sometimes just to remind your customers to remove it! Or if you are using more than one protective masking grade from us, it's a great way to distinguish grades to make sure the right grade is on the right surface!
