KDX, manufacturer of advanced polymer materials including Thermal Laminating Films, BOPP Wet Films and 3D Lenticular solutions, has improved the quality of its Silky Matt (BOPP) Laminating Film. This ‘soft touch’ film is aimed at Printers and Print Trade Finishers with laminating equipment
KDX’s new quality Silky Matt laminating film offers a stronger bond designed to significantly reduce the risk of de-lamination when compared with other similar lamination films. This improved performance has been achieved using a unique ‘blocking barrier’ contained within the film to reduce the likelihood of the coating on the substrate migrating back into the EVA adhesive layer which can result in de-lamination. Market testing of this new Silky Matt laminating film has seen universally improved results with positive customer feedback.
KDX Silky Matt is available in 35 micron and has an excellent matt effect as well as exhibiting a soft tactile skin feel. The film is associated with excellent low static characteristics to further enhance production efficiency and is suitable for adding spot UV, varnish and foil blocking.
Michel Diruy, general manager KDX Europe Bv, commented: “Some customers are using a ‘digital’ film at increased pricing levels to get an improved adhesion bond on Litho/Offset prints – we want to challenge these customers to try our KDX Silky Matt which we believe will give the adhesion customers need without the expense of using a digital film, improving results in terms of finish, production and pricing.”
KDX has direct routes to market in the UK and Europe and are supplying printers, finishers and converters directly in these areas. They have European warehousing and logistics set up for next day delivery within the UK.
