Films for industrial applications

our films for industrial processing

What are industrial applications?

By industrial film we mean all technical films that are used for industrial applications. This includes various applications and film solutions that will be described in more detail later on.

Films for industrial applications include the following plastic materials:

·         Polycarbonate films.

·         PMMA films (Plexiglas films).

·         Polyester (PET) films.

·         PEI films.

·         PBT-PC films.

Due to our long experience as a wholesaler for technical films, we are happy to advise you on the selection of the right film for your industrial project. For this purpose, we provide you with data sheets of our products. For initial tests or the production of first prototypes, we will gladly send you samples.

We offer our industrial films cut to size into rectangular sheets or in rolls in various thicknesses and colours. If you need special cuts or shapes, please contact us, we are looking forward to your request!

Types and manufacturers of industrial films.

As a long-standing distributor and converter of technical films, we offer you an extensive range of industrial films in various surface types and thicknesses to meet the highest demands. These include films with enormous temperature resistance or solutions that are suitable for various printing processes. In addition, our industrial films offer an ideal basis for industrial processing, finishing and many other purposes.

In order to be able to offer you consistently high quality, we work closely with established manufacturers of films. These include:

  • Sabic - well known for polycarbonate films (Lexan).
  • Covestro - known for polycarbonate film (Makrofol and Bayfol).
  • Röhm - known for PMMA products (Plexiglas film).
  • DuPont Teijin Film - known for PET products (Melinex and Mylar).
  • and many other manufacturers.

Another great advantage of our cooperation is that we are informed about further developments at an early stage and can thus advise you even better.

Our industrial films from the manufacturers mentioned can be roughly categorised as follows:

Polycarbonate films for increased continuous use temperature

Polycarbonate film products are stable for a continuous use temperature of 105 degrees Celsius. They can withstand temperatures of up to 160 degrees Celsius for short periods and become thermo-elastic (thermoforming) above 190 / 200 degrees Celsius.

Polycarbonate films are available in various surface types (polished, matt, fine matt, velvet matt) and thicknesses. They thus cover an enormously wide range of applications and are very often used for heat-resistant requirements.

UL listed films for industry.

Many applications require flame retardant films that meet specific fire protection classes. We offer flame-retardant products made of various materials from leading brands and manufacturers. These are flame retardant films made of polycarbonate, PEI and PBT with consistent insulation properties and good printability.

PMMA film with high UV stability.

We also offer high-quality PMMA products of the Plexiglas brand as rolls or sheets. This material is extremely UV and weather resistant. Due to the addition of the plastic polybutyl acrylate (PBA) as an impact modifier, the films are flexible, easy to cut and to process by laser.

Plexiglas film is either absolutely crystal clear or milky white and has a high-gloss surface in both versions. The colourless qualities have particularly good light transmission properties. They have a high resistance to weathering and abrasion and are absolutely colourless. White film types achieve excellent light diffusion effects through the use of diffuser pigments.

Sustainable industrial film, better for the environment.

Sustainability is a major issue for the industry in our current times when plastic waste is a major problem for the environment. The reduction of CO2 and the search for environmentally friendly materials are on the minds of most industrial manufacturers.

With our ecological film solutions, we are able to offer you and your company a more environmentally friendly alternative. The use of sustainable films therefore offers numerous advantages for industrial applications. They offer an optimal solution for many applications such as industrial packaging.

PEI films with particularly high temperature resistance.

Ultem 1000 B is a heat-resistant high-performance film made of the plastic polyetherimide (PEI). The PEI film has high quality, heat resistance, flame retardancy (UL 94 V0 listed) and low moisture absorption. It is characterised by good dielectric properties for a wide range of applications in electrical engineering and electronics. These include, for example, internal insulation against high voltage, on motors or wedge tongues, as well as highly heat-resistant adhesive tapes. Transformer windings or layer and phase insulation can also be easily implemented with PEI industrial films.

Biaxially oriented polyester (PET) films.

Biaxially oriented polyester film is characterised by a high resistance to temperatures. It also has a good tensile strength and tear resistance, excellent chemical, mechanical and thermal stability and excellent transparency. Polyester films are good electrical insulators, show low moisture absorption (0.3%) and high dielectric strength up to 180 kV/mm. With a printing pre-treatment, most of our polyester films can be printed well and homogeneously.

 

As a converter and distributor for technical films, we offer you our products as rolls or rectangulat sheets. You can buy plastic films in different thicknesses and surface structures / colours from us. Due to our close cooperation with the industrial film manufacturers, we can also fulfil special customer requests. Furthermore, we offer you the possibility to order samples for first tests or prototypes. If you have any questions about the processing, storage or product properties such as tear resistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our team will be happy to advise you.

Are there differences in the processing of films?

Our films for industry can be processed in different ways depending on the material. No special accessories or tools are required for most processing. Our films can be cut, punched, lasered (PMMA films) and glued. Most films can be printed well and consistently in various printing processes, using suitable inks. Many of our special films can also be printed digitally. For further information or specific processing enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Areas of application for industrial films.

Film products for industry have a wide range of applications. These include, for example, applications in the electrical / pharmaceutical industry (release film, hygiene film) or also use as packaging films (industrial packaging).

As a wholesaler for special technical films, we support you in finding the right product for your industrial application. For this purpose, we offer you a wide range of industrial films from leading manufacturers that meet even the highest demands. Possible areas and purposes of application are:

  • Front foils and front panels.
