Automotive and Transportation
The Automotive and Transportation market is constantly evolving. Manufacturers of cars, trucks, motorbikes, bus, trains and even RVs (Recreational Vehicles) have to meet an ever increasing number of challenges: safety, robustness and reduced weight, plus the environmental constraints of course.
In this context, the materials used in construction are increasingly expensive, scarce and lightweight. They are more vulnerable to scratches, damage and deterioration throughout the construction process: from component preparation up to and including delivery to the future owner of the means of transport.
Added to all the above, before arriving in manufacturers’ plants, the materials have undergone major transformations through application of a range of industrial processes. But thanks to process films, those materials will have been preserved and can be safely integrated into automotive manufacturing processes.
