Are Surface Protection Films (SPF) archival?

Are Surface Protection Films (SPF) archival? No. SPFs have a stick-and-stay adhesive coating on one side, which would interfere with the materials that need protecting. SPFs are pH neutral, and removable, qualities which makes them great for temporary laminations and surface protection, but not for archiving.
