Surface Protection Film

Surface protection films are thin plastic layers applied to the surface of various products to protect them from scratches, dents, dust, and other environmental hazards during transportation, storage, and installation. These films are crucial in maintaining the quality and appearance of various items, such as electronics, appliances, and automobiles, and help to reduce the cost of repairing or replacing damaged goods.

With more than five decades of experience, TPC Packaging Solutions is a reputable and trusted supplier of high-quality surface protection films, offering reliable and cost-effective solutions to protect your products during transportation and storage.

Types of Surface Protection Film

Surface protection film comes in a variety of materials, thicknesses, and colors. They can even be designed to protect manufactured products after installation is complete.

Types of surface protection film include:

Low Density Polyethylene

Low-Density Polyethylene film is a flexible and lightweight plastic material known for its durability and high resistance to impact and punctures. Its versatile properties make it a popular choice for many applications, including surface protection films, packaging, and consumer goods, due to its benefits such as low cost, high clarity, and ease of processing.


COEX is a multi-layer film structure in which two or more layers of different materials are extruded together to create a composite film with unique properties which include improved barrier properties, enhanced strength, and durability.

Poly Vinyl Chloride

Polyvinyl chloride is a type of plastic material known for its durability, strength, and resistance to weathering and chemicals. It is widely used in various applications, including metal-forming.


Polypropylene is suitable for applications that require high heat resistance due to its dimensional stability, which ensures that the film retains its shape and size without stretching, unlike PVC films.


Polyolefin is a plastic film used on painted metal surfaces and acrylic glass applications. It is lightweight, durable, and easy to apply.
