Drytac launches laminates for UV prints

Drytac has a new range of pressure sensitive laminate films aimed specifically at UV-curable wide format printers. The Protac high coat weight films have UV inhibitors within the adhesive – a clear coating that adds longevity to all UV inks. Drytac claims that UV inks are manufactured with minimum levels of inhibitors so that they cure more efficiently, making them more susceptible to outdoor conditions, despite the fact that one of the selling points of UV printers is that the inks are suitable for outdoor use without lamination.
Steve Broad, sales director of Drytac Europe, adds, “Our tackifiers in the adhesive help with adhesion to low surface energy substrates which is especially important if your products are going to be cut on digital cutters such as Zund and Kongsberg to name a few.”
