Permanent and Temporary Surface Protection Solutions
Argent’s design team provided the surface protection solution for a chrome shifter bezel. Our specialty die-cut and temporary protective film preserves that perfect jewel-like finish from injection molder to dealer.
Surface Protection Materials
Highly conformable self-adhesive urethane films are primarily used for permanent exterior paint protection in automotive applications. They provide an extremely resilient, abrasion resistant barrier between surface and environment in vehicle areas susceptible to scratching and stone chipping. Urethane film is virtually invisible on most smooth gloss finishes and is non-yellowing.
LDPE Film Removable
Protective LDPE film (low-density polyethylene) provides temporary surface protection for automotive exterior finishes and decorative components. LDPE film is available in several thicknesses, adhesive coatings, and clear and opaque varieties to meet the needs of a variety of applications. LDPE film can be custom converted to meet the specific needs of your temporary surface protection application.
