Gloss OPP (oriented polypropylene) lamination provides a wide range of uses across the whole spectrum of printed products. The properties of good gloss and strength and the advantages of low cost make it suitable for all the following applications.
Company reports and accounts, Brochures, Catalogues, Carrier Bags, Greeting cards Book Jacket Covers, Magazines, Maps, Labels, Point-of-Sale and Displays.
The standard film thickness is 12 micron. Film can be laminated over apertures and a window lamination created.
This Matt finish coupled with its smooth texture offers a very high quality image to brochures and book covers. Matt finishes are also particularly suited to surfaces which need to be easily read such as wall maps, but can be prone to scuffing and should be handled with care.
This polypropylene film appears between gloss and matt OPP film lamination and imparts a smooth natural finish to brochures and book covers, giving excellent clarity to the underlying print. Like Matt OPP the surface can be prone to surface scuffing and should be handled with care.
Gloss CelloGreen lamination is better suited to gluing and foil blocking than OPP (oriented polypropylene) and so is used typically for cartons. Acetate is harder and therefore less pliable than OPP.
A matt CelloGreen lamination finish, coupled with it’s smooth texture, offers a very high quality image to brochures, packaging and pamphlets. Matt finishes are particularly suited to surfaces which need to be easily read such as wall maps, providing strength and the elimination of light glare in use. Matt acetate has particularly good gluing properties but is prone to surface scuffing and should be handled with care.
‘Semitone’ is a member of the CelloGreen family with a semi matt natural finish. The lightly textured surface offers a very high quality image to brochures, cartons and pamphlets. Problems with glare are avoided by using matt films in general, but semitone has greater clarity than standard matt films, therefore the print appears to be clearer and brighter, making any text more legible. semitone has particularly good gluing properties and the unique surface is particularly resistant to finger marking and scuffing when compared to other matt laminated products.
Polyester film offers extremely good heat and chemical resistance and can be used, for example, on high quality table mats, or where print requires protection in aggressive environments, ie labelling of chemicals.
Nylon film offers good heat and chemical resistance, together with exceptional toughness, tear and scuff resistance designed to be used on products that require extra durability such as workshop manuals and where product flatness is critical in high humidity.
Our Prisma lamination is an iridescent film. Prisma can be used to create an unusual reange of finishes on print. The film is particularly effective on solid colours.
