Self-Adhesive Films on Oily Substrates?

Protection Film Solutions by Schreiner ProTech Many components used for general industrial purposes and in the automotive sector have oily, greasy or dirty surfaces. This poses a special challenge to product labeling and protection since standard films do not adhere to such substrates. Schreiner ProTech develops customized solutions that effectively protect components during production and transport processes in this special field of applications as well.

In general industries, films perform a wide variety of tasks and are used for marking or process control. Protection Films reliably cover components of various shapes, sizes and materials, thus protecting them against damage, dirt or contamination. In these areas, Schreiner ProTech offers a comprehensive portfolio of film solutions. Properties such as tack force and peel-off force or temperature resistance can be customized according to the production process and desired protective function. This results in tailored protection coupled with process improvement and reduced labor effort also for hard-to-bond substrates.

The Protection Films ensure reliable covering, even in slightly oily applications, which reduces the effort of cleaning components. Relevant parameters such as required tack force, temperature, bonding substrate and retention time are included in the development project. Solutions for non-residual, semi-permanent or permanent adhesion are possible. Thus, the films are equally well suited for short-term use and for permanent coverings for different surfaces. In addition, the films can be made up of several segments that can be detached during assembly as required by the individual process steps. The film parts are provided with starter tabs for ease of use. For component marking purposes, Schreiner ProTech prints the Protection Films with information for process control, warnings or assembly instructions, or data for component tracking. Security features for enhanced authenticity protection may be additionally integrated as well.
