Known as Hanwha Bodaq Interior film, the films have been in use since the 1980s. At the end of 2018, the Hyundai Group acquired Hanwha, but works according to the same principles and continues to cooperate with the surface manufacturer Bodaq. To meet customer needs, the manufacturer has adapted and optimised the product and its properties over time. Surface, adhesion, health and environmental factors are incorporated into the production process to produce a wide range of decor variations. A tactile surface emphasises the colour design and grain of the film. In the home, they are just as suitable as for DIY customers, mainly due to their ease of use and high durability in assembly.
Hyundai (Hanwha) film range
Over 250 patterns and colours of film.
Over 250 different films are part of the Hyundai (Hanwha) range. Among them, the interior film includes abstract patterns, wood, stone and coloured film. The product examples above show only a small part of the wide range of decors. There is a suitable decor for every taste; let yourself be inspired by the world of films and take a look into the world of self-adhesive film!
By the way, Bodaq designs and produces the impressive surface of the film, and Hyundai (formerly Hanwha) assembles the surface with the adhesive layer using large machines.
Economical and ecological.
With the goal of developing a film coating for indoor use, Hanwha set high standards for the product’s properties and ingredients years ago in the manufacturing process. Thus, the product undergoes continuous improvement and development to meet the high standard. This is achieved not only by laboratory tests under prescribed conditions but also by realistic long-term tests using product bonding. The acquisition of Hyundai does not change these high quality standards, as the high-performance material will continue to grow and meet requirements in the future. The PVC film does not contain harmful plasticisers (phthalates) or heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury or chromium. Thus, Hanwha (now Hyundai), in collaboration with Bodaq, set the basis for a deformable film that has no negative impact on health.
In addition, the Interior film has an antibacterial and antifungal effect, reducing the spread and reproduction of germs and fungi. Its dirt-repellent surface is proven by laboratory results and practical applications. Even with aggressive substances such as vinegar, soy sauce, coke, coffee, 5% ethanol and 10% hydrochloric acid do not interact and do not affect the resistance of the films. Even after several hours, the surface remains completely intact. This means there are no restrictions in everyday handling and cleaning. Thus, the interior film from Bodaq and the adhesive from Hanwha (Hyundai) meet the standard for a hygienic household, living and working area.
Additional safety standards according to industrial standards prove, among other things, the fire resistance of the Hyundai (Hanwha) film and Bodaq surface. In Düsseldorf, after the prescribed tests, the film receives the German fire protection certificate B1 for its resistance. Aspects of fire behaviour include burning distance, burning time, smoke density and dripping, the results of which lead to categorization in fire behaviour and determine B1 certification.
In addition to the health aspects, Hyundai (Hanwha) and Bodaq also pursue environmental concerns in their film production. In addition to renewable energy and VOC (volatile organic compound) reduction, they test the entire production process for CO² emissions through the carbon footprint.

Areas of application of the Hyundai film
Possibilities through film bonding.
Due to their robust properties and durable adhesive strength, the film from Bodaq and Hyundai (Hanwha) production are suitable for room design in the interior of private homes, commercial premises and industrial halls. The adhesive layer basically adheres to all smooth surfaces such as metal, glass, plastic or wood and can also be applied directly to raw materials such as MDF and chipboard. This means that the range of applications of the self-adhesive film extends from the construction industry such as trade fair or store fitting to the interior design of living rooms, bedrooms or children’s rooms to the highlighting of individual details.

Development of Hanwha Bodaq and Hyundai
Specialists in plastics and design.
Since 1967, Hanwha has been manufacturing plastic industrial products, and over time, established the entire manufacturing process in their company, all the way to the products for sale. By continuously improving its products and processes, Hanwha rapidly became the market leader. Together with surface specialist Bodaq, the PVC films are given unusual designs and a tactile feel. With years of experience and expert know-how across all stages of development, Hanwha’s Bodaq surfaces set new standards for films in interior design. In 2018, the Hyundai Group acquired the Hanwha Group and integrated the film industry into its concept according to Hanwha standards. But even under the Hyundai umbrella brand, interior film continues to promise continuous quality with constant development, making it one of the country’s leading companies.
