Mechanically resistant films

our films with specially high impact resistance

What are mechanically resistant films?

Under this category we refer to all specially stable films that are characterised by a high strength and mechanical resistance. These films can withstand mechanical forces that act on an object from the outside. These forces can take the form of pulling, pushing, shearing, bending or twisting. The force on an object can be constant or impulsive and can affect a point of the surface of a larger area.

These impact-resistant films withstand particularly high mechanical stress due to the material and their surface. Among them are plastic films made of:

·         Polycarbonate.

·         PMMA.

·         Polyester (PET).

While glossy films scratch easily, special films with a matt surface have an increased scratch resistance. They are therefore particularly suitable for all applications where the finished component is exposed to high mechanical stress.  

What material are our stable films made of?

Technical films with mechanical resistance are available in different plastics. Each material has different properties and advantages or disadvantages depending on the application. The choice of the right material has an enormous effect on the mechanical resistance of components. In this respect, we distinguish between the following film types:

Special films made of polycarbonate with particularly high impact resistance.

Polycarbonate film are particularly robust, tear-resistant and impact-resistant. Their properties include high dimensional stability and enormous resistance to mechanical impact. This even applies to PC films in lower thicknesses. As the thickness increases, so does the resistance of the films. The König Film Centre offers polycarbonate films in thicknesses from 125 µm to 1 mm.

Polycarbonate films are available in various surface types and colours. Transparent PC films with a matt surface are particularly resistant to mechanical influences and have hardly any traces of scratches. We carry films in white, black and transparent in various thicknesses.

Worth mentioning is the scratch-resistant polycarbonate film Lexan HP 92 S with a polished surface on both sides. This high-gloss special film has a one-sided coating against scratches. This makes the film the ideal solution for all applications where a particularly high resistance is desired and a glossy surface is required.

Polycarbonate films cover an enormously wide range of applications and are regularly used in all applications where there is a requirement for mechanical resistance. PC films are also resistant to high temperatures.

Transparent PMMA film with a particularly hard surface.

PMMA films are crystal clear plastic film solutions with a particularly high UV stability, transparency and light transmission. They are characterised by an enormously hard and thus robust surface, which recommends them for applications with mechanical resistance. In addition to high-gloss qualities, there are also films with a matt surface (Plexiglas 0F003). Thanks to its UV stability, the crystal-clear technical film made of PMMA is particularly suitable for outdoor applications.

Films made of polyester with high load-bearing capacity.

Our biaxially stretched PET films also have high strength and dimensional stability and are also extremely tear-resistant. This makes them a good medium for many industrial applications where high resistance to mechanical, chemical and temperature influences is required.

If you require further details on the individual films, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can send you product data sheets from the manufacturers or even samples. We will also be happy to help you with questions regarding the processing of our films.

For which applications do I need mechanically resistant films?

There are numerous applications where the film surface is exposed to strong mechanical influences. These include labels and insulation as well as various outdoor applications.

  • Front films and front panels.
  • Films keyboards.
  • Membrane switches.
  • Name plates.
  • Keypads and control panels.
  • Automotive solutions and interior parts for automobiles.
  • Insulation of power supplies, memory drives, keyboards, PC cards and screens.
  • Laminated insulation and shielding foils.
  • Internal shielding against high voltage.
  • High-heat resistant adhesive tapes and self-adhesive labels.
  • Production of temperature-stable stickers.
  • Motor and spline insulation.
  • Transformer windings.
  • Layer and phase insulation.
  • Outdoor applications.
  • Manufacture of high quality packaging.
  • Backlit displays and indicators.
  • Residential and commercial lighting.
  • Packaging films (industrial packaging).
  • Hygiene film (pharmaceutical industry).
  • Protective or release films

In addition, there are countless uses in the industry where the component is exposed to the demands of high mechanical stress. Our films can be processed without special accessories. We look forward to your enquiry and will be happy to recommend the right technical films for your application. We will gladly send you data sheets of our special films. If you would like to check in advance whether the film type is suitable for your application, we will be happy to send you a sample of our products.
