Automotive Surface Protection

Tecman provide a concise range of surface protection films that focus on the complex requirements of the automotive industry. Combining extensive product, engineering, and industry knowledge, we go beyond simply providing a product, we create solutions that optimise application processes, whilst reducing cost and wastage.

Automotive Surface Protection Film Solutions


With vehicle aesthetics being an integral part of creating a positive customer experience, using the most effective protection film during each stage of the process, from production through to final delivery, is essential for presenting a flawless finish.  Our range of surface protection films are designed to protect delicate and sensitive surfaces during production and transportation, and provide clean, residue-free removal. They conform to irregular surfaces and adhere to a range of materials including paintwork, plastics and textiles.

Our advanced manufacturing and conversion facility enables us to deliver a vast range of die-cut components using customised liner configurations and presentation styles.  By looking beyond the initial drawings, we carefully analyse and consider all aspects of the application, focusing on how we can most effectively configure the format to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
