ACRYLITE® Film 0F016

Product

ACRYLITE® Film 0F016 is a high weather resistant, glossy and transparent acrylic film for graphic printings and high quality lamination's.

Due to its excellent performance under weathering and UV light exposure, it does not present color change or yellowing. Therefore it provides high protection of laminating systems from degradation caused by UV radiation.

Its glossy and very smooth surface leads the film to have an excellent optical quality surface.

Application

ACRYLITE® Film 0F016 can be used to be printed on as high quality film decoration and then laminated on different polymeric films and sheets. Laminated decoration films based on ACRYLITE® are suitable for a wide range of molding processes such as thermoforming, and insert molding.

In labels and tapes, this film can be used as single face layer or clear overlay in laminate systems for high UV and weathering protection. High gloss and quality finishing is achieved.

Due to its good optical property and lamination with pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA), ACRYLITE® Film 0F016 is recommended for traffic control signs under long term outdoor application.

Due to its very good optical properties, it can be used as overlay in high quality ID Cards.

Processing

ACRYLITE® Film 0F016 has a good printability behavior in all printing technologies such as gravure, flexography and digital. In most of the cases any pre-treatment or primers are not required.

It can be laminated onto polymeric substrates such as films or extruded sheets based on PVC, PC, ABS, PMMA and ASA by in-line or roll-to-roll heat lamination.

High quality laminates in between this film and other polymeric substrates such as PET, PC, PP, PE and PVC can be achieved with pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) or solvent based adhesives.

The film can be cut-to-size or die cut.

Sales range

ACRYLITE® Film 0F016 is delivered in standard rolls of 60 or 75μm thickness, 1270mm width, and 1000mm length.

Tailor made rolls can be produced under prior commercial agreement.
