Plastic. Think for a minute of all the things you own that are made of plastic. It is everywhere in a multitude of shapes, sizes, textures and finishes. Whichever the shape or variety it comes in, one thing is required. Protection! Fortunately, Surface Guard® Protective Film is designed to accommodate each of these variables. Plastic surfaces go through different processing, assembling and finishing all to make the end product. To ensure each plastic surface stays flawless throughout all these rigors, Surface Guard® Protective Films are used to help protect it from scratches, marring and abrasion from processing through shipping.
Below are a just some examples of products within the plastics market that we protect, but be assured that Surface Guard has protective masking grades to fit all your plastic sheet or film protection requirements. Our products can be machine or hand applied and are engineered to meet and exceed your (and your customers') surface protection requirements.
Perforated Film On Rolls
We can perforate protective films in horizontal and vertical directions to allow you to easily tear off your specific sheet size and hand apply to your part or surface
Lane or Strip Coating
We can supply finished rolls with uncoated edges, to make the film easier to remove. We can also apply the adhesive in strips leaving uncoated areas. This can make the product easier to remove as well as save you money.

Prism or Collimating films – These films are engineered films that manage the angle of light that you see from the display or monitor. They can brighten up your display and save battery power. We have designed several products for these applications. Call your Surface Guard® sales rep and ask him about our 2mil Polypropylene medium adhesion products. Our base film is very low gel and is very heat tolerant.
Polarizer Films – These films are usually smooth in finish. They manage light coming from the display found on TVs, computer, etc. They are often used in conjunction with Prism and Reflector films. Surface Guard has custom formulated products that can peel as low as 0.08oz per square inch. Call or click to get a sample.
Reflector Films – These films are also usually smooth in finish and are used to maximize the use of light in the display, reducing battery consumption. Surface Guard's low adhesion Polypropylene films provide protection and can withstand heating and cooling without curling up.
Note for all these applications, your Surface Guard® rep will ask for substrate samples for us to complete an MEF (Masking Evaluation Form). We will thoroughly test our masking products under your customer required testing parameters, to make sure our products perform as expected.
