Protective covering on powder coated plates

Protective covering on powder coated plates

Protective covering on powder coated plates

Was looking at changing the order we stamp out and paint some .093" thick x 2.82" diameter aluminum discs. Right now they are stamped from sheet and then painted (powder coated - one side only). The outside painter would like to paint the sheets before stamping and apply a protective covering before shipping to the stamping place. Sort of like Saran -wrap.

3M said they don't have anything. Looks like some of the protective wrap from U-line might work. Any of you tried to protect powder coated parts before machining? We have them stamp 3000 pieces at a time and that lasts about 2 years.
