French surface protection company Novacel released its Novaguard adhesive automobile protective film. Novaguard is used for covering new vehicles after manufacturing to help protect them from the elements while being shipped.
Novaguard is a white, 60µm, water-based polyolefin material, which is a more ecologically viable option for production when compared to a solvent-based polyolefin material. Once used, Novaguard can be recycled or reclaimed by burning. As a company, Novacel is aiming to achieve iso 14001 within the next year, which, according to the company, will further display its commitment to reducing its environmental impact.
According to Novacel, this coated film will reach a maximum adhesive level immediately upon application and will not result in flag effect, so wind won’t be able to blow Novaguard off the vehicle. Novaguard comes in 200m rolls and has a width range of 30 mm to 2,800 mm. Pricing was not available for this product.
