Plastic Film-Laminated Steel Sheets

Plastic Film-Laminated Steel Sheets

HISHIMETAL is a composites material that is produced by laminating PVC film on a base material such as galvanized steel sheets, stainless steel sheets and aluminum sheets. PVC film is a general purpose film and we have employed it as a laminating film for many years.
This material is used in many different industries because it has metal strength and workability in addition to the design qualities and functional properties of plastic film.


  • HISHIMETAL is a laminated material including a metal layer and a PVC film layer available in many different color patterns and emboss.
    Many options are available including solid colors, printed patterns, high-gloss options to satisfy various design requirements.
  • This material can be used in typical metal forming processes such as bending, cutting, and pressing.
  • This material can be used for outdoor applications by laminating a weather-resistant PVC film.
  • Emboss
  • High-Gloss


HISHIMETAL is widely utilized in many different applications due to its excellent weatherbility, corrosion resistance and a variety of colors and patterns.

  • Interior applications
    Prefabricated baths, curtain rails, closet doors, spandrels, and others
  • Exterior applications
