Tekra Corporation announces the launch of ProTek Weatherable Clear Polyester, a new UV resistant hardcoated polyester with superior optical properties. The film blocks over 99% of UVA, UVB, and UVC light, the light that yellows and cracks plastics along with fading ink. Every roll of film has a certified 2000 hours of simulated weathering in a Xenon arc chamber.
In addition, the hardcoat provides protection for underlying graphics in highly demanding environments and further protects from scratch, abrasion and chemical attack. The coating is completely transparent so it provides total clarity to the film. According to Carl Sommerstad, Director of Technical Sales, “With the application of one of the weatherable texturing inks, printers now have the capacity to provide their customers with a fully weatherable, selectively textured part, with totally clear windows for display.”
ProTek Weatherable Clear Polyester is available on 7mil (175 micron) super clear polyester base film.
