Optical Market
Protect The Materials That Brighten Up Technology


If you ever wondered while looking at your Ipad, Laptop, or Cell phone, what goes into making that display so clear, bright and crisp looking, it’s because of the thin films that are used in making the LCD Display. These films also help reduce the battery consumption, allowing you to use your devices longer before charging up!

Thin film technology is improving daily and is not only being developed for optical displays but for photovoltaic and other electronic applications. We’ve briefly summarized several Optical applications that are commonly used in LCD displays, that we have successfully sold surface protection solutions to.


  • 1-10 mil films available
  • Adhesive systems from 0.08oz - 35 oz
  • Add perforations: 3" min/ 78" max
  • Widths from 3" to 80"
  • Roll Lengths from 50' to 15,000'
  • 2 Color Printing Available


Add Ons To Make your Job Easier

Perforated FilmPerforated Film On Rolls
We can perforate protective films in horizontal and vertical directions to allow you to easily tear off your specific sheet size and hand apply to your part or surface.


Strip CoatLane or Strip Coating
We can supply finished rolls with uncoated edges, to make the film easier to remove. We can also apply the adhesive in strips leaving uncoated areas. This also can make the product easier to remove as well as save you money.

Prism or Collimating Films

These films are engineered films that manage the angle of light that you see from the display or monitor. They can brighten up your display and save battery power. We have designed several products for these applications. Call your Surface Guard® sales rep and ask him about our 2mil Polypropylene medium adhesion products. Our base film is very low gel and is very heat tolerant.

Polarizer Films

These films are usually smooth in finish and also manage light coming from your display. They are often used in conjunction with Prism and Reflector films. Because of the smooth finish, ask you Surface Guard® rep about our same 2mil Polypropylene film utilizing a lower adhesion adhesive system.


Reflector Films

These films are also usually smooth in finish and are used to maximize the use of light in the display, reducing battery consumption. Talk to your Rep about the same low adhesion Polypropylene films mentioned above for Polarizer films.
