Glass Protection Film
By its nature, glass is extremely fragile. Even heavy-duty tempered glass can scratch, mar, swirl, etch or haze with handling and exposure. This makes working with glass a challenge. Each step of a glass product’s life cycle represents a new danger to the glass itself. Hazards arise during:
Surface Armor glass protection film is the simple, cost-effective solution to many of the challenges involved in working with glass. Our protective films are easy to apply, and can provide protection from only a few minutes to over a year, depending on the requirements of your application. They can then be quickly removed without leaving any adhesive residue. Coated optics, interior/exterior windows, shower doors and other glass surfaces each require their own specific type of protection.
Protective films are classified based on their adhesive type, tack and material.
• Adhesive type – This is the product identification number of the adhesive used to attach the protective film to the glass.
• Tack – Measured in ounces per lateral inch, this defines the amount of adhesive used and the resulting “stickiness” of the glass protection film. Because there are many variables at play, the tack level of most adhesives will be expressed as a range of values rather than a single, specific measurement.
• Film/Paper – This indicates the type of plastic or paper that the film is made of.
