Overview

What looks good is perceived to be good, and Marian and tesa's surface protection solutions help make that perception a reality.

This presentation discusses Marian's die cut surface protection solutions manufactured using tesa's comprehensive assortment of film-based adhesive materials specially designed, engineered and developed to protect surfaces from both interior and exterior environments.

These solutions are used to protect "delicate" and "critical" surfaces of products and parts from scratching, marring, abrasion, and contamination throughout manufacturing (cutting, drilling, routing, bending, thermoforming, painting, and installation), distribution and warehousing processes.

These risks exist in virtually every aspect of a supply chain, but are preventable if surface protection solutions are utilized. Common industries affected include: automotive, transportation, medical, electronics, metal fabrication, and appliances.

To avoid driving up costs from re-painting, re-processing or scrapping damaged surfaces, many manufacturers use some sort of surface protection solution throughout their supply chain to protect their product's surfaces. In many cases, an appropriate source for a surface protection solution is a film-based die cut part.

Combining Marian's state-of-the-art die cutting capabilities with tesa's comprehensive assortment of surface protection films, Marian has the ability to manufacture die cut surface protection parts that comply with all of your requirements and prevent potential cost drivers.

These parts can be:

  • Supplied kiss cut on rolls to assist with automation
  • Perforated to keep parts securely in place until ready for use
  • Manufactured with tabs and extended liners to aid in assembly and application
  • Cut to tight tolerances to account for complex surface dimensions

All of which decrease costs associated with time, labor and waste.

Our ultimate goal is to deliver quality surface protection solutions at competitive prices, while meeting all of our customers' expectations.
