Surface Protection Films

Wouldn’t it be great if everything had a diamond-hard (or some other unobtainum) coating on it? No surface would ever get scratched, marred or permanently stained with dirt. Unfortunately, not everything is made by Tony Stark!

Protecting critical surfaces is important. Often it’s hard to find the right kind of protection film, one that’s easy to apply and remove. That’s where Grafix comes in!  We offer several general purpose surface protection film solutions that work well in a wide variety of industrial applications. And, because our protective films are not self- wound, but have a convenient release liner backing, our films can be supplied in cut-to-size sheets, as well as rolls.

Types

Our stock types of surface protection film:

Low Tack Clear (LTC): This .002” film has an ultra-removable adhesive on a polypropylene base. The adhesive sticks when needed and removes without leaving a residue. It has a low resin content and therefore offers good clarity. The polypropylene base provides excellent chemical resistance.

Low Tack Matte (LTM): This .002” film has an ultra-removable adhesive on a polypropylene base. The adhesive sticks when needed and removes without leaving a residue.  Because of its matte surface, it has good anti-marring properties. The polypropylene base provides excellent chemical resistance.

Extra Tack Matte (ETM) is a .001″ matte polyester film with a stronger removable adhesive to help prevent paint seepage and edge build-up. Because of its matte surface, it has good anti-marring properties. The polyester base provides excellent chemical resistance.

Surface protection materials can also be custom-manufactured in a variety of adhesions, thicknesses, colors, and with unique properties such as anti-static, UV- protected, laser-resistant and flame-retardant. They can also be customized for a specific surface and to withstand specific fabrication processes.

All our stock surface protection films come on a thin paper release liner, which allows us to convert this film into the form you need it for direct application. However, we can also supply liner-free self-wound rolls on a custom basis.
