Automotive / Exteriors / Temporary Protection

Temporary protection

During transportation from the automative manufacturing plant to the dealer, temporary adhesive solutions are utilized to protect the vehicle finish. This is done to reduce chances of damage to the paintwork during the journey itself, and for protection during storage upon arrival. These adhesives may stay in place for days or years, depending on the situation. Pressure-sensitive tapes from Avery Dennison deliver the adhesion that is required to perform and can be removed without leaving any residue behind.
