Printers set to enjoy added price/performance benefits
from Lintec Graphic Films' new destructible PVC film
with lay-flat sheet liner
Lintec Graphic Films, a leading UK supplier of specialist pressure sensitive, coated film products for durable label applications, has extended its range of tamper evident substrates for security marking requirements with the addition of a satin white destructible PVC film backed with a lay-flat sheet liner.
Once applied, the destructible PVC (product ref: 03-126) offers excellent destructibility and instant tamper evidence on a broad range of substrates, even when applied to low energy surfaces. Upon tampering or attempted removal, the material fractures easily, thereby preventing subsequent re-application elsewhere. As such, the film enables printers to effectively serve the automotive, electronic and consumer goods sectors with a deterrent against warranty thefts, false insurance claims and counterfeiting. This makes the new film perfect for an array of applications, such as electronic security seals, fixed information/warning labels and asset tracking stickers.
Delivering consistent satin gloss level and excellent printability via conventional inks, Lintec Graphic Films' 50 micron destructible PVC film is available directly from stock for immediate delivery and can be supplied in sheets for use by screenprinters, as well as rolls for label printers using eco-solvent printing and plotter die cutting. Lintec Graphic Films' new destructible PVC labelstock also boasts excellent dimensional stability and offers superior UV, humidity and chemical resistance, as well as five year outdoor durability in temperature ranges from -40°C up to +85°C. The film also offers further security measures thanks to a coating of PAT1 high performance acrylic adhesive. Offering good adhesion on a broad range of surfaces, the automotive approved PATI exhibits low adhesive ooze combined with very good chemical and elevated temperature shear resistance. “Lintec Graphic Film firmly recognises the need for printers to sharpen their edge with innovative substrates that meet specific customer requirements and our latest security marking film is another advanced solution for those seeking to extend their capabilities and increase margins”, says Gary Dixon, International Business Manager at Lintec Graphic Films Ltd. “Furthermore, this film is available directly from stock, enabling us to ensure rapid delivery to customers.”
Lintec Graphic Films' new satin white destructible PVC film is available from stock in 100 sheet packs 1000mm x 700mm and 1000mm x 50M rolls, but can also be supplied in custom roll and sheet sizes. The release liner is a 130gsm blue polycoated kraft liner, selected for its lay flat and die cutting properties.
