Painted & Coated Metals

The painted metals industry utilizes many types of topcoat paint systems including Kynar, Polyester, SMP, and new appliance coatings (anti-fingerprint, tinted stainless and more). Adhering to and protecting these, and soon to be developed, systems is a challenge we have met time and time again. With the right film type and adhesion, our protective films will protect the painted surface during all the stages of fabrication, assembly and shipment, and remove cleanly from the surface when the job is done. Our experience is in protecting a wide range of painted metal surface including:

Service Centers & Uncoated Metals

Anodized and stainless steel metals face many fabricating, finishing, handling & shipping processes. Those environments put that mill, bright, brushed finish at risk from scratches, damage or contamination. The performance of our protective films allows you to do almost anything to metal – Except Damage It. If you’re a fabricator or metal service center, you can count on our protective film solutions to ensure your metal emerges from bending, drilling, stamping, shearing and assembly processes without damage. We have the portfolio of products to protect many applications in this industry.
