Film Cores Features and Uses

During shipping, storage, or handling, industrial films protect surfaces and products from scratches, dust, dirt, moisture, and other contaminants.

Industrial films can provide insulation for windows, roofs, walls, and other structures, helping to regulate temperature and reduce energy costs.

Industrial films are often used as wrapping material for products and packages, providing a secure protective barrier during transport and storage.

Translucent industrial films are commonly used as covers for greenhouses, providing natural light while protecting plants from the elements.

Industrial films are also used in agriculture for silage covers, hay bale wrapping, and other applications that require protection from moisture and other environmental factors.

Industrial films are used in construction for vapor barriers, insulation, temporary walls, and more.

For Skived Method Films

The skived method is a process used in the manufacture of thin films, typically made from materials such as plastic, metal, or ceramics. The process involves shaving or slicing off thin layers from a larger block of material using a sharp blade or knife, typically at an angle.


Metal Films

Metal films, such as copper or aluminum, are used in various applications, including electronics and packaging. The films are typically used as conductive layers or protective coatings to prevent corrosion or oxidation.


Ceramic Films

Ceramic films are thin films made from ceramic materials, typically used in electronic applications such as capacitors and resonators. The films have high dielectric strength and are stable at high temperatures, making them ideal for high-frequency applications.


Polyester Films

Polyester film is a versatile plastic film used in various applications, including packaging, labels, and insulation. The film is strong, durable, and has excellent dimensional stability, making it an ideal material for applications where strength and stability are essential.


Polyimide films

Polyimide film is a high-temperature plastic film used in applications requiring high heat resistance, such as electronics and aerospace industries. The film is also chemically resistant and has excellent dimensional stability, making it an ideal material for applications such as flexible circuitry and insulation.
