Surface protection film


We are using NOVACEL film for most of our products, NOVACEL is the worldwide leader in industrial surface protection films, especially for stainless steel sheets. Always a step ahead in the stainless steel protection, NOVACEL product for both Fiber LASER and CO2 cutting technologies. This product has been approved by leading LASER manufacturers such as Bystronic, Salvagnini and Trumpf.

NOVACEL main features:

  • Colour: black / light grey

  • Film type: Polyolefins UV treated

  • Outdoor resistance: 3 months

  • Thickness: 4 mil

  • Adhesive type: solvent based rubber adhesive

  • Adhesion strength (AFERA 4001): 12.8 oz./in.

  • Lengths: 3281’ and 1640’

  • Dedicated specific print

  • NOVACEL can be used for both LASER cutting technologies (Fiber and CO2).

  • NOVACEL has a unique light grey color which easily identifies product that is suitable for cutting with fiber LASER machines.

Novacel provides many benefits that make all the difference:

  • Protected sheet metal can be LASER cut in a single pass with Fiber or CO2 technologies.

  • Film does not separate from the surface during the LASER cutting operation, thereby preventing the formation of air bubbles.

  • Minimal shrinkage and clean edges

  • Outdoor resistance of 3 months

  • The film may be easily removed in one piece, without blocking or tearing.

  • The unique light grey colour easily identifies protected plates that can be cut with Fiber LASER and CO2 LASER machines.

  • A specific print shows the correct direction for sheet metal shaving and abrasion.

  • NOVACEL reduces LASER-cutting time and maintains surface integrity throughout the cycle of various mechanical transformations (bending, backing,stamping, forming, etc.).

  • The film’s specific characteristics allows for automated protected sheet-metal handling while avoiding any risk of taking two plates at the same time.

  • NOVACEL is totally free of any raw materials that could produce hazardous outflow to the operators or equipment during LASER cutting operation. film is recyclable, as it is with the entire NOVACEL range.

Fiber LASER machines can process at higher speeds and will help lower operating costs compared to LASER CO2 machines. Samples are available upon request.
