Clear, conformable and durable overlaminate facestock

Argotec has introduced ArgoGraph 46510 overlaminate facestock graphics film said to provide clarity, conformability and durability in the same film product. Formulated from the same base aliphatic thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) resin used to make Argotec’s 6-mil automotive paint protection films, 1-mil ArgoGraph 46510 preserves, protects and prolongs the life of advertising and decorative graphics in similarly rugged environments.

ArgoGraph 46510 is suitabled for use in protecting graphics wherever they will be exposed to sun, weather or temperature extremes, heavy use or abrasive conditions. It exhibits all the desirable characteristics inherent in highly durable aliphatic polyurethanes: abrasion and chip resistance; good hot and cold temperature performance, cold-crack resistance; non-yellowing, UV resistance; no plasticisers to migrate and cause embrittlement or adhesive incompatibility; no additives for consistent adhesive compatibility/anchorage; resistance to hydrocarbons, ozone, bugs, road chemicals, bacteria and fungus; it is highly flexible, conformable and halogen-free.

Uncoated, 1-mil-thick ArgoGraph 46510 is available in roll widths up to 62 inches (1.57 meters) and lengths up to 1000 non-spliced lineal yards (914.4 meters). It is extrusion coated onto a high-gloss PET carrier that enables the film to be wound and unwound without the need for TPU processing agents. The result is a film with consistent surface tension for high yield and throughput in the PSA coating process. After coating, it will accept matte, textured or paper film release liners.

The right graphic overlaminate film can help deliver and protect that image in the clearest way over a long period of time; Argotec believes that material is ArgoGraph 46510.
