Solutions: Paint & Surface Protection

Durable, glossy and smooth paint and surface protection for harsh environments and electronic displays

Argotec is the leading supplier of advanced thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) paint and surface protection technology. Adhesive coaters, automotive engineers, appliance designers and electronic display manufacturers around the world look to Argotec for high performance surface protection films. Argotec is the largest extruder of uncoated TPU paint protection films for the global automotive aftermarket.

Argotec utilizes a proprietary thermoplastic polyurethane formulation to provide outstanding processability for pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) coaters. The films are highly flexible and offer optical clarity, excellent conformability to three-dimensional surfaces, UV resistance, and a Class-A gloss finish. They are made using exacting extrusion techniques to produce the flattest lay-flat films in the industry.

Argotec’s advanced surface protection technology, available in single- and multi-layer, is used to prevent scrapes, chipping, and other erosive damage to metal, glass, or paint. Used on a wide range of applications from helicopter blades to mobile devices, the durable films provide excellent abrasion and impact resistance. 

The versatile film can also be formulated with an antibacterial package to protect the vulnerable surfaces of digital displays having multiple users. After adhesive coating, the protective films can be die cut to specific configurations to extend the life of touch screen displays on a wide variety of electronic devices.
