Not only do we supply specialist self-adhesive films to the retail design, display and graphics sectors, but we also play a major part in supplying industrial-grade stencil films to various industries both in the UK and abroad. Consider it our best-kept secret!
Offering protection to a wide variety of substrates including wood, slate, glass, stone and metal, our tough stencil films are used to mask off areas during the processes of sandblasting and shot peening.
Used to decorate and personalise signs and plaques made from wood, glass and slate, the sandblasting process requires strong stencil film. ASLAN supplies stencil films ranging from 80 micron to 250 micron thick which are perfect for these light-to-medium-duty sandblasting projects.
● Sandblast 80 | ASLAN S69 | 80 micron
● Sandblast 180 | ASLAN S68 | 180 micron
● Sandblast 250 | ASLAN S66 | 250 micron
Higher-pressure sandblasting requires a more robust stencil film. This is typically used by stone masons when crafting headstones and other memorials, as well as decorative features in the construction industry and ornamental areas in public spaces. Products that are commonly used to mask off and protect areas during these heavy-duty sandblasting jobs range from 330 micron to 600 micron.
● Sandblast 330 | ASLAN S64 | 330 micron
● Sandblast 600 | ASLAN S62 | 600 micron
The shot peening of metal surfaces and components involves firing small ‘shot’ at high speed into a metal surface. This increases the density and strengthens that area, which in turn makes it highly resistant to fatigue and failure.
Due to the critical nature of some of these components, it’s super important to use the right stencil film. We’ve been working alongside a number of customers involved in the Automotive, Aviation and Aerospace industries, as well as those manufacturing pipes, valves and pumps for the Water, Oil and Gas sectors, to develop new products that offer increased adhesion values to cope with this rigorous process.
● Sandblast 600 | ASLAN S62HT | 600 micron with high tack adhesive
● Blast Film 330 | 330 micron paper based stencil with high tack adhesive
All of our sandblast and shot peen stencil films offer high-definition edges during the blasting process. They also feature residue-free removal so no matter which film is selected you can be absolutely sure that your project will be a success.
