Adhesive Solutions for Automotive Surface Protection

Today’s vehicle is an expensive, high-value asset with ever-increasing consumer expectations for a flawless exterior finish. OEMs utilize temporary applications for protecting exterior surfaces, paint finishes and wheel rims during new car transportation.

Consumers are also going to great lengths to protect the original surface finish on their vehicles to obtain a more sustainable look with long-lasting performance. Applications like aftermarket paint and surface protection films are used to ensure vehicles maintain their value.
