Materials with protective film should be stored in dry and warm conditions. Coils with
protective film may not be stored on top of each other. Adhesion of protective film to
material increases over time, eventually making it difficult to remove the film from the
surface. Due to that, protective film is recommended to be removed from the material
as soon as possible, but absolutely no later than six months from the manufacturing
of the material.
Protective film decreases friction between coil windings, which creates a high risk of
coil collapsing on thin gauge coils. Due to the risk collapsing, we don’t recommend
protective films for coils gauge<0.60mm. If protective film is essential, following
precautions must be taken to minimize the risk collapsing: Max coil weight < 5 tons
and self-supporting coil protection shields (Rydap) must be used in the package.
Protective film has a good resistance to forming but is susceptible to cuts. When
working with material with a protective film, clean tools, that do not damage the film,
and appropriate methods are to be used.
Cutting fluids are generally not needed because the film protects the material surface
and reduces friction. If cutting fluids are required, their impact on the protective film
and its adhesion should be verified beforehand.
Films to be used with metallic colour coatings have arrows on them indicating the
strip’s painting direction, which enhance the use of the material in the manufacturing
of end products.
