Foil names and applications

Depending on the intended use, there are different names for foils. Here is a list of common names, materials and areas of applications:

Construction film/foil

Mainly used for covering in construction. But it is also used in trade fair construction. It is made from LDPE and mainly produced in black. Common strength is 200 my. The type 200 offered in stores corresponds to a real strength of 160 my. We also produce construction film in natural, transparent or any desired color. The film can also be ordered folded on a roll. A 4m wide film can be wound onto a 2m wide roll. But multiple folds are also possible, for example 6m with 2 side folds on a 2m roll. Screed film is made from regenerated and recycled material and usually takes on a slightly gray or black color. Cover film is waterproof, but only partially weatherproof and lightfast. It should therefore only be used for short periods of time outdoors.

Garden / greenhouse film

Often made from LDPE regrind and is usually milky transparent. Common strength is 190my and is provided with UV protection. We produce exactly according to your requirements.

Silage film

Silage film is mainly used in agriculture as an oxygen barrier. It enables grass and maize to be preserved over a long period of time. It is produced as a coex film from LDPE and metallocene. We do not process this material.

Pool film/Pond liner

Foils made of soft PVC are used for foil ponds. We do not process this material.

Roofing membrane

Roofing film is a film that is usually made of plastic and contains PU or PVC. These materials ensure that the roof membrane is very resistant and can withstand any weather without any problems.

Vapor barrier film/Fire protection film

Vapor barrier film is a flame-retardant film in accordance with DIN 4102 in category B1 or B2.
Common dimensions are 4000mm with a thickness of 0.150mm. We manufacture according to your needs.
Dampfsperrfolie B1

Film, flame retardant, according to DIN 4102 and EN 13501-1, class B1 or B2
