Drytac has added a new Anti-Scratch Gloss film to its Protac film range. This is a 100µ clear PET laminating film with a scratch-resistant hard coat, high gloss finish.
The new film is coated on one side with a pressure-sensitive, solvent acrylic adhesive with a PET release liner. It can be used with cold or heat assisted laminators. Shaun Holdom, Drytac’s global product manager, says that it uses “a high-performance adhesive developed by Drytac for the lamination of output from (eco)solvent, latex and UV printers.”
It’s suitable for the protection and enhancement of photographs, inkjet prints and retail advertising such as POS displays. Drytac says that the finish is good enough for use in art galleries and museums.
Holdom explains: “Protac Anti-Scratch Gloss is very durable thanks to its scratch-resistant hard coat. Its formulation ensures that the final printed output has zero shrinkage, high clarity and is resistant to chemicals. The adhesive is a solvent-based permanent acrylic which means it has good moisture resistance, and additionally, the siliconised polyester liner ensures a smoother finish.”
It’s distributed throughout the UK and Ireland by Antalis.
