Argotec custom engineered polymer films are specifically designed and processed for individual applications. They can range from being extremely thin and transparent to being thick enough to provide significant structural support. Driven by innovation, our team has the experience and knowledge to support your unique project needs .

Argotec engineered film can provide customized benefits and properties to meet the needs of your specific product, including:

  • Breathable & Biocompatible Substrates
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • High-Performance Durability
  • Extreme Temperature Protection
  • Optical Clarity
  • Specialty Protection
  • UV Protection
  • Custom Width, Thickness, Colors, and Finishes 

Argotec engineered polymer films can be customized to have specific properties, such as high-tensile strength, resistance to heat, chemicals, and UV radiation, or they can be made flexible, resilient, or rigid as needed. The thickness of the film can be customized to provide the right balance between flexibility and strength.

Similarly, the width of the film can be tailored to fit the dimensions of the product it needs to cover. The color and texture of the film can be modified to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the product or to serve functional purposes such as reducing glare.

The type of polymer used in the film can be selected based on the specific properties required for the application. For instance, TPU films are known for their exceptional toughness and flexibility, while EVA films are popular for their excellent clarity and resistance to UV radiation.

Understanding TPU and EVA Films

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) film and Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) film are two widely used types of engineered polymer films. Argotec TPU film is renowned for its toughness, flexibility, and resistance to abrasion, which makes it perfect for applications that demand durability and flexibility, such as in the automotive and footwear industries.

EVA film is known for its clarity and UV resistance. It’s softer and more flexible than TPU and has excellent adhesion properties. Argotec EVA films are commonly used in photovoltaic modules, laminated glass, and packaging materials.

Markets For Custom Engineered Polymers

Argotec engineered films are not a one-size-fits-all solution, offering many customizations for a variety of markets and end uses. These options can range from variations in thickness, width, color, texture, and even the type of polymer used. Argotec custom engineered films are revolutionizing a multitude of industries with their innovative applications.

In the medical industry, these films are used to create sterile packaging for medical devices, wound care products, and to develop emerging technologies. In the electronics industry, they serve as protective films for screens, insulation films for wires, and even as dielectric films in capacitors.

They can be custom-made to have varying degrees of hardness, which makes them suitable for use in a variety of industrial applications as these films are crucial in applications that require a higher level of durability and structural support.

Custom Argotec films and sheets offer the ability to withstand a wide range of temperatures, making them suitable for use in harsh environments. They also exhibit excellent resistance to oil, grease, and various chemicals, thereby extending their applications to industries like automobile, aerospace, and construction.
