Architectural Film or Interior Film: Understanding the Terminology

Architectural film, interior film, and interior wrap are terms that are often used interchangeably in the world of design. These labels all refer to the same innovative material used extensively in both architectural and interior design projects.

Other common synonyms for interior film include surface film, decorative film, design film, interior finish film, interior covering, interior vinyl, interior coating, and interior refurbishment film. Each of these terms highlights the diverse applications and transformative capabilities of the film, emphasizing its role in modern design and renovation projects.

Structural Properties of Architectural Film Wrap

The architectural vinyl film is comprised of multiple layers, each contributing to its functionality and aesthetic appeal:

  • Embossed and Printed Film Layer: This top layer is made from vinyl chloride plastic, expertly crafted to replicate various textures and appearances such as wood, marble, concrete, brick, metal, fabric, and more. It’s the visible layer that defines the look of the film.
  • Air-channeled Adhesive Layer: Beneath the decorative surface is an adhesive layer made from acrylic plastic, specifically polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). This material is chosen for its strength and lightweight properties. Importantly, PMMA does not contain bisphenol-A, a compound often found in other plastics, making it a safer choice in environments sensitive to chemical exposure.
  • Release Back Paper: This layer acts as a protective backing for the adhesive, ensuring that the film maintains its stickiness and integrity until application. It’s removed during the installation process.

Each layer of the architectural film wrap is designed with both aesthetics and functionality in mind, ensuring that it not only looks good but is also durable and safe for various applications like kitchen wrapping and bathroom wrapping.
