ASK THE ENGINEER
Protective Film Masking
What type of products use protective masking film?
There are literally thousands of products that need surface protection film to prevent scratching, damage, and contamination that can happen during the manufacturing and shipping process. Display screens, plastic and metal components, painted parts are all good candidates for masking. Cars use automotive masking films on surfaces inside and out to protect the vehicle and its components during shipping.
How is the masking provided?
There are two main types of masking. The most economical way to provide is on a continuous self-wound roll that is perforated so it can be torn off and applied to the part. The rolls can be any width and have perforations at .125” increments.
Die cut masking is another option. These masking parts are cut to the shape specified and are usually provided on a roll so they can be auto-applied. The masking can also be printed with instructions on how to remove.
What type of material is used for protective masking?
There are a wide variety of materials available for surface protection films with different variations of adhesive depending on the final use. Materials are available for indoor and outdoor exposures along with high temperature applications. The adhesives are designed to remove clean even up to a year after they are applied.
Do you make paint masks?
We manufacture and provide many options for paint masking. We have self-wound tapes along with materials that can be cut to shape. They can survive the powder coat paint process and are designed to remove clean even after high heat. They also work in conjunction with base labels that can be thermal transfer printed and subsequently applied after the print process. The masking can then be removed exposing a paint free label.
