Protection For What Gets You There
Planes, Trains & Automobiles is not only a movie, it is a snapshot of three major industries that TOPGUARDTM Protective Film is used in. From the carpeting in airplanes and cruiselines to the huge windows on trains and RVs, you can be confident that TOPGUARDTM has developed a product with the right adhesive to protect what you need, without leaving residue behind. Read below for a few specific applications that TOPGUARDTM works in.
TOPGUARDTM products are typically used for interior application in the commercial aircraft industry. Common interior applications include:
Aero Carpet Masking
When aircraft are brought in for refurbishing or maintenance, it is a common practice to apply protective film to the newly installed carpet to protect from foot traffic during further maintenance or refurbishing work. 24” by 500' rolls are ideal for this application.These rolls can even be reverse wound for easy application to the carpet.
Surface protection for plastic parts
Examples would be plastic overhead bins, seat back tray tables, and bulkheads. Try our SUR 97 series for multiple plastic surface applications. TOPGUARDTM Protective Films can be used in the finished aircraft or can be used at the injection molding companies that are making the finished parts.
Polycarbonate, Acrylic and Glass
TOPGUARDTM manufactures a complete line of protective film for Polycarbonate, Acrylic and Glass surfaces. These surfaces are usually coated with anti scratch, anti fog, or UV coatings. For Aerospace, this can translate into window surfaces, as well as optical displays found in the cockpit. Also, consider all the exterior lights found on an airplane. Usually these are all protected after they are manufactured to keep them from being scratched.
Whether it’s your bass boat or an ocean liner, SGI has protective masking solutions to protect against surface damage to your vessel. Common applications include:
Boats of all sizes need the same TLC as aircraft do to keep them looking good and afloat. Often times, if carpet is being replaced, or refurbish work is taking place around the carpeted areas, TOPGUARDTM carpet masking is used to keep the carpet looking new. Paint spills, mud, ect, are all kept off the carpet.
TRY SGI’s SUR Series masking film for various other surface protection ideas:
Wood, Brass, Painted Metals and Copper Railings or other hard to protect materials. TOPGUARDTM can lane coat our adhesive products so that they do not come in contact with these hard to protect surfaces. This lane coating capability offers the ability to wrap the entire railing, thus protecting it, and only adhering the film to the bottom (not visible) part of the railings.
Solid Surfaces – Counter tops made from materials like Granite, Corian, High Pressure Laminate and Marble.
Bathroom Surfaces – Shower stalls, countertops, whirlpool surfaces, tile or VCT floor surfaces.
Appliance Faces or Fronts – either stainless steel, painted metal or plastic.
Protect RVs, campers and other recreational equipment during fabrication, assembly and transit. TOPGUARDTM manufactures protective film with custom adhesive levels for all the different substrates including carpet, furniture, wall panels and kitchen components.
Recreational equipment such as ATV's, Motorcycles and even landscaping equipment like riding lawnmowers often requires surface protection to protect the paint from scratches. Contact us today to get started on your application.
