    Market Highlights

    Protective films are adhesive films that are applied to various surfaces to safeguard them from damage, scratches, or contamination during manufacturing, transportation, installation, or renovation processes. These films are designed to be easily applied and removed without leaving residue or causing any damage to the underlying surface. Protective films are commonly used in industries such as construction, automotive, electronics, appliances, aviation, medical, and food & beverage. They can be found on a wide range of surfaces, including glasses, plastics, laminates, aluminum, metal, stones, and even carpets.
