ArgoGuard®

High performance uncoated thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) paint and surface protection film.

About this product

ArgoGuard® is a high-performance uncoated thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) paint and surface protection film. ArgoGuard® provides a strong and durable shield for any bare or painted metal, glass or plastic surface exposed to extreme conditions to prevent damage from abrasion, chipping, chemicals and wear.

 

ArgoGuard® has excellent abrasion and impact resistance to provide adhesive coaters, automotive engineers, appliance designers and electronics display manufacturers a durable layer of protection for cars, trucks, appliances, mobile devices, computers, electronic display screens and more. ArgoGuard® TPU paint and surface protection films offer coaters and converters consistent optical clarity, conformability, UV resistance, lay-flat and Class-A gloss finish required for their products.

 

With a proven track record and a proprietary formulation that provides outstanding processability for adhesive coaters, SWM is the largest extruder of uncoated TPU paint protection films for the global automotive aftermarket. If you have a valuable surface to protect ArgoGuard® is the material of choice.
