Special films

our films for special applications

What are special films?

The term "special film" is not clearly defined, as it includes films for very different applications. We understand a special film to be a technical film for particular, special applications.

Therefore, most special films need an explanation and require a lot of know-how. Due to our long experience as a specialist for technical films, we are happy to advise you on the selection of the right film for your application or project. We will gladly provide you with technical data sheets and samples of our products.

We offer all special films cut to size or as rolls in various surfaces, material thicknesses and colours. If you need formats in individual sizes, please contact us, we are looking forward to your request!

What material are special films made of?

We offer you films made of different plastics and from different manufacturers. In our programme we have materials made of the following materials:

  • Polycarbonate films.
  • PMMA films.
  • Polyester films (PET).
  • PEI (polyetherimide film).
  • PBT

Depending on the material, both the film properties and the way of processing differ. This makes the films suitable for applications ranging from lighting to advertising.

We work with the leading manufacturers of special films and offer you branded products of the highest quality.

Type of special films and their properties.

As a long-standing film wholesaler, we offer a wide range of industrial films in various surfaces 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 optimal basis for industrial processing, finishing and many other purposes.

Our special films have a whole range of advantages. Depending on the material, they offer the following film properties, among others:

  • Temperature stable
  • Chemical and solvent resistant
  • Mechanically stable
  • Weather resistant
  • UV-stable
  • Self-adhesive finish
  • Printable
  • Scratch resistant surface
  • And much more

In our category brands, we have compiled information about our special films manufacturers for you. We work closely with various film manufacturers and can therefore always recommend the right film for your application (from lighting to advertising technology). Our film manufacturers stand for the best quality for the highest demands.

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

Our industrial films from the above-mentioned manufacturers can be roughly divided into the following categories:

Polycarbonate films - high mechanical stability and temperature stable.

Polycarbonate is particularly impact resistant and has a high dielectric strength. It is also extremely temperature resistant (heat deflection temperature) and insulating. Film products made of polycarbonate are resistant to a permanent temperature of 105 degrees Celsius. For short periods they can withstand temperatures of up to 160 degrees Celsius, and from 190 / 200 degrees Celsius they become thermo-elastic (thermoforming).

Other advantages include the material's high dimensional stability and optical transparency. Polycarbonate film is available in various surface types (polished, matt, fine matt, velvet matt) and thicknesses. Thus, the films offer a wide range of uses.

PMMA film with high UV stability.

PMMA films of the Plexiglas brand offer the great advantage of increased UV and weather resistance. This makes PMMA films ideal for outdoor use or any application where the finished parts are exposed to UV light. The addition of the plastic polybutyl acrylate (PBA) as an impact modifier makes these high-quality films easy to cut by laser.

Polyester (PET) films - tear-resistant, durable and stable.

Biaxially oriented polyester films have excellent chemical, mechanical and thermal stability, making them a very good all-round film for special industrial applications.  PET film has good tensile strength and tear resistance and has high transparency. Polyester films are also good electrical insulators and absorb little moisture (0.3%).  Through a printing pre-treatment, most of our polyester films can be printed well and homogeneously. This makes them ideal for use in advertising technology.

UL listed films for fire protection applications.

For many applications, flame-retardant special films are required that fulfil the usual fire protection classes. König Folienzentrum offers 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. These films are suitable for all applications where there is a requirement for fire protection.

PEI films with particularly high temperature resistance.

The Ultem 1000 B film made of polyetherimide (PEI) is a heat-resistant high-performance film. The PEI film has high heat resistance, flame retardancy (UL 94 V0 listed) and low moisture absorption. It has good dielectric properties for a wide range of applications in electrical engineering and electronics.

Sustainable industrial film, better for the environment.

With our ecological film solution Makrofol EC we offer you a more environmentally friendly alternative. This polycarbonate film is based on corn starch and therefore has a significantly lower CO2 footprint. The use of sustainable films therefore offers numerous advantages for industrial applications. They offer an optimal solution for many applications, such as industrial packaging, and protect the environment.

How are special films processed?

Our special films can be cut, punched, lasered (PMMA films) and glued. Depending on the material, there may be differences in processing and application. In principle, no special accessories or tools are required for further processing. Most films can be printed well and consistently with suitable inks using various printing processes.

For further information or specific enquiries about the processing of our products, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For which applications are special films used?

The list of applications for our special films is very long and can hardly be described completely. This is because many uses are individual and therefore almost unique. The areas range from the electronics industry to advertising technology. Thanks to their versatile film properties, colours and surfaces, special films offer almost endless possibilities. Ultimately, our foils can be used for a variety of applications, including the following:  

  • Keyboards.
  • Front films and front panels.
  • Membrane switches.
  • Keypads and control panels.
  • Type plates for machines.
  • Flexible printed circuits.
  • Automotive solutions and interior parts for automobiles.
  • High-heat resistant adhesive tapes and self-adhesive labels.
  • Insulation of power supplies, memory drives, keyboards, PC cards and screens.
  • Laminated insulation and shielding foils.
  • Internal shielding against high voltage.
  • Use in advertising technology.
  • Production of temperature-stable stickers.
  • Motor and spline insulation.
  • Transformer windings.
  • Layer and phase insulation.
  • Various outdoor uses.
  • Production of high quality packaging.
  • Backlit displays and indicators.
  • Residential and commercial lighting.
  • Packaging films (industrial packaging).
  • Hygiene film (pharmaceutical industry).
  • Protective or separating films.
  • Diffuser and light diffusion of lighting sources and LEDs.
  • Insulation of power supplies, PC cards or batteries.
  • Thermal and breakdown insulation.
  • Insulators and spacers.
  • Labels and overlays.
  • Printed circuit boards.
  • EMI shielding.
  • Medical packaging (FDA).
  • Various industrial applications (e.g. stamped parts).

In addition, there are countless areas in industry or advertising technology that can be implemented with our special films. We look forward to your enquiry and will be happy to recommend the right films for your area of application.
