Adhesive Solutions for Architectural Films

Architectural films are a cost-effective way to create sustainable design solutions and offer interior comfort and climate control. As adhesive technologies and the quality and performance of film, ink, and printing have improved, this design solution:

  • Brings new life to existing assets and helps to reduce waste
  • Makes exterior renovations easier with minimal downtime 
  • Is conformable to a variety of surfaces
  • In certain applications can provide energy efficiency

As with the films themselves, pressure-sensitive adhesives used for architectural films need to satisfy a set of diverse performance requirements for use in permanent to semi-permanent graphics for floors, walls and windows, wayfinding and safety applications.

Performance Polymers adhesives for architectural film applications provide a range of performance features:

  • Bond integrity to a wide variety of surfaces and textures from smooth glass and metals to rough cinder blocks and wood
  • Low initial adhesion to provide temporary repositionability during installation
  • Long-term durability
  • Resistance to environmental factors like UV light, temperature fluctuations, moisture and humidity
