Lintec Graphic Films teams with Roland DG at IPEX to demonstrate profit-enhancing labelstock opportunities for printers and convertersLintec Graphic Films, a leading UK supplier of specialist pressure sensitive, coated film products for durable label applications, will showcase the innovative application opportunities of some of its foremost label substrates in conjunction with Roland DG (UK) Ltd at IPEX (Stand 12, C140).
Roland will demonstrate several Lintec Graphic Film label products on its new VersaUV LEC-330 Inkjet Printer/Cutter, which has been introduced to enable short-run label printing onto a vast array of substrates. Print business owners visiting Roland’s stand at IPEX can witness how the use of Lintec Graphic Film’s advanced substrates for a number of high-end industry applications can differentiate their service offering and contribute to profit-enhancing opportunities.
Lintec Graphic Films' innovative UV printable labelstocks to be demonstrated on Roland’s LEC-330 comprise:
Premium White Polyester and Premium Mirror Silver Polyester, a 50μ gloss white and 50μ bright silver print receptive polyester, respectively. Both Lintec Graphic Films' gloss white and bright silver polyester labelstocks offer excellent dimensional stability combined with good solvent, humidity, elevated temperature and UV resistance, while their print receptive coatings are specifically designed to ensure good adhesion of UV cured inks. The products are coated with a high performance acrylic adhesive which exhibits excellent adhesion on a broad range of surfaces, combined with very good chemical and elevated temperature shear resistance. Each is perfectly compatible with low-surface energy plastics, making the substrates ideal for printed graphics, automotive decals and resin dome emblems.
Clinglok® Thermal Transfer Printable Matt White Cling Polypropylene Film. Clinglok® is an innovative label product developed for applications where the ability of the label to adhere only to itself is required. Thanks to a unique coating, which exhibits excellent permanent adhesion when applied to itself, Clinglok® is ideal for use where dirt attraction around the label edges, commonly associated with conventional self-adhesive labelstock, is to be avoided. Clinglok® offers particularly important benefits to cosmetics, jewellery, and eyewear applications – such as back-to-back loop labels, – as well as promotional and information labels. It can also be applied to glass, when clean removability and repositionability is required. Clinglok® offers good chemical, humidity and abrasion resistance and is designed to accept conventional inks and variable information via thermal transfer.
UV Inkjet Printable Scratch-Resistant Gloss Ultra-clear Polyester. Enabling the much sought after ‘no-label look’, this 50μ gloss ultra-clear topcoated scratch resistant labelstock offers excellent optical clarity and dimensional stability, combined with good solvent, humidity, elevated temperature and five-year 99% UV blocking performance. The product’s topcoat is specially designed to ensure excellent ink-adhesion combined with superior scratch resistance of non-printed areas. This makes it ideal for printing clear labels and decals for use in a range of industry sectors.
Roland will also demonstrate the capabilities of Lintec Graphic Films’ Eco-solvent Digitally Printable Gloss Clear Polyester Film on one of its eco-solvent printers. Designed for the production of digitally printed window graphics, this product offers excellent optical clarity and dimensional stability and features a topcoating that is specifically designed to ensure good adhesion of eco-solvent inks. The labelstock is also coated with NPL ultra-clear high performance acrylic adhesive which exhibits excellent optical clarity, flow-out and UV stability. This makes the substrate perfect for producing printed graphics for application to flat glass, clear window labels and decals. As a result, it offers multiple possibilities across as range of sectors, including architectural signage, manifestations, point-of-sale and exhibition graphics.
“We are delighted to be teaming with Lintec Graphic Film at IPEX and to offer visitors an up-close look at the versatile attributes and creative potential of some of their most important UV printable labelstocks”, says Steve Chappell, UK Business Development Manager at Roland DG. “A visit to our stand at IPEX would be a wise move for any printer seeking out niche substrates to increase their competitive edge, improve their service offering to customers, or gain access to new market areas.”
