PE Film Applicator.

SvcPE-PVCPE Film Applicator

To protect the quality of a stainless steel surface during fabrication, installation and commissioning, Poly-ethylene (PE) films are the answer. PE films have now superseded the old PVC films many fabricators were familiar with.

S&T Stainless has the ability to apply these films during the sheeting and polishing process, and also as a separate “one off” function. We also apply film to aluminium, copper and brass sheet to customer’s own material (C.O.M).

Film Varieties

Various combinations of film & adhesive types, film thickness, and adhesive levels, are available to suit the various processes metals are put through, e.g. Laser Cutting, Deep Drawing, Perforating, Punching, Folding, etc. Many of these films enable marker pens to be used for marking out fabrication details. Our standard PE film is suitable for use by both Fibre and CO2 Laser Cutting equipment.

Cost Savings

Expensive re-polishing or re-manufacture can be avoided by using these very cost effective films.


Ink jet marking can be applied to the protective film on request to identify material type, size, part numbers, or your company name for advertising purposes.

Customers Own Material

C.O.M. may be processed subject to prior arrangement on an all care, no responsibility basis. If risks or material faults are identified prior to processing customers are contacted prior to proceeding.
