Stainless Steel Protection Film
With stainless steel, finish is everything. Whether you are looking for a brushed, bright annealed or mirror appearance, a single scratch can ruin the value of your product and cut through the protective surface layer which gives “stainless” its name.
The problem is that your stainless steel faces many potential hazards throughout the fabrication, shipping and installation processes. The surface can be marred at any step along the way, and the cost of fixing or replacing the product can put a big dent in your profit margin.
However low-cost stainless-steel protection film provides a great return on investment, as it eliminates scrapes or scratches to the steel surface itself. Any damage or soiling impacts only the protective film, which is then easily peeled off and disposed of. Your product remains completely clean and untouched.
Types of Stainless Steel Protection Films
Protective films are classified based on their adhesive type, tack and material.
Adhesive Type – This is the product identification number of the adhesive
Tack – Measured in ounces per lateral inch, this defines the level of “stickiness” of a particular adhesive. 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.
Material – This identifies the product substrate, itself (type of plastic / paper).
