Chargeurs Advanced Materials
Chargeurs Advanced Materials is the world leader in surface protection. Committed to a responsible policy on the use of the planet’s resources, the business line offers very high-tech protection solutions for fragile surfaces in the transformation phases (bending, stamping, profiling, etc.), and for handling, transportation and fitting. These solutions are used by manufacturers of surfaces or products that must always look impeccable regardless of how they have been handled, such as plastic, glass, stainless steel, aluminum, pre-coated metals, and PVC profiles.
Chargeurs Advanced Materials has the most extensive range of very high-tech protection solutions on the market. As such, CAM directly contributes to a significant reduction in its customers’ waste volumes. This expertise is the result of unique and proprietary combinations of polyethylene films and adhesives, the assembly quality of which is decisive for the quality of the finished product. The adhesive is deposited using a coating process in a very thin, even layer, ensuring that the film is absolutely flat and distortion free, so as not to damage the protected surface.
