Novacel strengthens its global leadership with the acquisition of Main Tape, Inc. by its holding company Chargeurs Protective Films

Monday, July 18th, 2016 Chargeurs Protective Films completed the purchase of Main Tape from Nekoosa Coated Products. Based in Cranbury, New Jersey (USA), Main Tape specializes in the design and manufacture of plastic film for temporary surface protection applications. Founded in 1987, Main Tape has successfully developed a comprehensive product and solution offering for industrial customers based primarily in the United States but also in Mexico.

The acquisition will strengthen Chargeurs Protective Films’ position, and thereby Novacel, as world's leading manufacturer of surface protection films due to the market presence, product offering and leadership. It will bring the whole business additional marketing and manufacturing capacity along with solid synergy benefits.

Laurent Derolez, Chairman of Novacel, Managing Director of Chargeurs Protective Films, said "This is an exciting development for our company and presents tremendous opportunities to accelerate growth & expand our market presence. We will of course remain focused on our customers and reinforce and build on our offerings to deliver even greater value and enhanced quality of service."

Bare metal protection / LASER cutting

LASER FIBER & LASER CO2:One NOVACEL solution for both cutting technologies!

Always a step ahead in the stainless steel protection, NOVACEL is glad to introduce a new product, 4228REF, for both LASER Fiber and CO2 cutting technologies. This product has been engineered in partnership with Trumpf for fiber LASER cutting technology. The 4228REF is approved by Trumpf, Bystronic and Salvagnini on LASER Fiber.

NOVACEL 4228REF main features:

  • Color: black / light grey
  • Film type: Polyolefins UV treated
  • Outdoor resistance: 3 months
  • Thickness: 100 µm
  • Adhesive type: solvent based rubber adhesive
  • Adhesion strength (AFERA 4001): 140 cN/cm
  • Lengths: 1000 and 500 metres
  • Dedicated specific print

NOVACEL 4228REF can be used for both LASER cutting technologies (Fiber and CO2).

NOVACEL 4228REF has a unique light grey color which easily identifies product that is suitable for cutting with fiber LASER machines.

Novacel 4228REF provides many benefits that make all the difference:

  • Protected sheet metal can be LASER cut in a single pass with Fiber or CO2 technologies
  • Film does not separate from the surface during the LASER cutting operation, preventing the formation of air bubbles.
  • Minimal shrinkage an clean edges
  • Outdoor resistance of 3 months
  • The film may be easily removed in one piece, with no blocking or tearing
  • The unique light grey color easily identifies protected plates that can be cut with LASER Fiber and LASER CO2 machines
  • A specific print shows both the potential for the correct direction for sheet metal shaving and abrasion

NOVACEL 4228REF cuts down on LASER-cutting time and maintains surface integrity throughout the cycle of various mechanical transformations (bending, backing, stamping, forming, etc.).

The film’s specific characteristics allows for automated protected sheet-metal handling while avoiding any risk of taking two plates at the same time.

NOVACEL 4228REF is totally free of any raw materials that could produce hazardous outflow to the operators or equipment during LASER cutting operation. NOVACEL 4228REF is recyclable, as it is with the entire NOVACEL range.
