Polyonics, a company that manufactures high temperature engineered tapes and label materials, has announced that the company has designed two clear overlaminating films, which provide higher resistance to heat. This film can be used to protect the image in the label.
Polyonics' Overlaminating Films
The company has developed the thermal transfer printable overlaminating films on a polyethylene naphthalate film. These overlaminates exhibit superior performance to resist abrasion and chemicals, offering rigidity to the label in order to sustain performance in severe environmental applications.
These overlaminates can work in environments at a temperature over 125°C and can survive short term temperature spikes up to 300°C. These clear films are durable and can protect symbols for industrial signs and warning labels, colored logos and graphics.
Polyonics has designed XL-1600 2 mil clear overlaminating film together with 1 mil acrylic adhesive in such a way to protect signs and labels used in high heat purposes. The labels’ appearance will not be changed by this clear film, wherein there is a necessity for small print and color graphics.
XL-1601 2 mil clear overlaminating film along with 1 mil silicone adhesive has been developed for use in applications, where very hot, cold or exposure of chemicals is anticipated.
