Custom FormulationCustom Formulation


Surface Guard only utilizes environmentally friendly water-based adhesive systems that are specifically designed to meet our customers' requirements. All or our adhesives are custom formulated by our Research & Development team. Developing our own adhesive systems gives Surface Guard the unique ability make necessary adjustments in order to provide our customers with the best possible product. Surface Guard® Protective Film and our proprietary adhesive systems are designed to give customers the protection they need with an easy to remove adhesion that removes cleanly.



Surface Guard custom formulates a cohesive coating that is applied to our line of Pack & Guard® Cohesive Products. SGI’s Research & Development team takes into account how the cohesive coating bonds to the material it is being coated on, analyzes how it peels away after seeling and tests how it reacts with various items being packaged. You can be sure that when Surface Guard uses it’s state of the art equipment to apply this proprietary coating to the material of your choice, it will not fail.

Strip Coating

If by some miracle, we cannot find an appropriate adhesive system, we can offer strip coating. When we do this, we are only applying adhesive on the edges of the film. This minimizes the surface contact with the adhesive system. We can also do this purely as a cost reduction idea. Less adhesive, less cost!


Example Applications

Carpet Masking - Strip or land coat adhesive to reduce coast.
Cold/Heat Packages - Strip coated application for a customer friendly returnable package
Furniture - Effective for surfaces with incompatible areas that should not have adhesive interaction

Railings - Strip coat edges so adhesive only sticks to the bottom of railing. Save money and reduce the chance of adhesive transfer. Ideal for outdoor applications.
