Films are used in most industries. They are often used for physical protection of surfaces, however, the preservation of foiled contents such as food, the temporary modification of a surface or the bundling of goods can also be an application of films. It is not uncommon for adhesive tapes to be referred to as films. In addition, many adhesive tapes also use film as a backing material.
The most ubiquitous and well-known films are probably display protection films, adhesive films, which also include stretch films and cling film, and last but not least bodywork films, which are used for both lettering and for an uncomplicated, reversible color change in automobiles. Of course, in industrial use there are many other types of film, which are tailored to the individual application in terms of their composition, properties and adhesives.
Adhesive films are characterized by the fact that a carrier film is equipped with an adhesive to establish the connection to a surface. The range of adhesive films also corresponds to the extremely wide field of different adhesives.
Depending on the carrier material used and the surface to which the film is to be applied, the products need to vary. For example, a film that is intended to protect against scratches on a painted surface must have different properties than a film that is intended to protect against impacts. Redetachability is also a flexible factor, depending on the function of the film. In order to keep track of all these possibilities, we are happy to help you.
The special feature of adhesive films is their ability to adhere to smooth surfaces without the use of an adhesive. This makes adhesive films a popular alternative, especially in combination with glass. Other applications include stretch films for wrapping and bundling goods and also cling films. Protective films applied to watches or electrical appliances, for example, are also mostly adhesive films. Of course, in the area of adhesive films, we are also happy to offer you not only rolls, but also die-cut parts in order to find the ideal product for your application.
The term laminate is also known beyond industrial applications of floor coverings in wood look. Wood look is an important keyword here, as this type of flooring involves a substrate material, in this example usually pressed wood, and a namesake laminate, in this case often hardwood or precious wood, which are laminated together. This creates a connection between the carrier and the laminate that is as non-detachable as possible. Depending on the application, laminates can be quite different. Most often, the goal of the laminate is to protect another surface or give it a more premium look. In this process, the film, known as a laminate, is firmly bonded to another surface by means of various processes. Since this type of film is extremely specific, there are few commercially available products here. We are happy to help you find a suitable product.
The product range of films is extremely wide and individual. Of course, we have common products in our basic range to serve classic applications quickly and easily. But also in the area of individual solutions, we are happy to help you find the right products for your application or project.
