Based on what Drytac describes as an optimized adhesive coat weight and new formulation, the company’s Interlam Pro overlaminating films can now be used on most inkjet printed output, including pigment, (eco) solvent, latex, and UV.

Drytac explains the new development provides a strong bond, the elimination of tenting around raised inks and easy flow characteristics that minimize the chance of silvering when applied at room temperature or an optimum temperature of 110°F (43°C).  
 
The technology provides Drytac’s standard finishes of Glossy, Matte, Lustre, and Emerytex (pebble-textured) to enhance colours and provide protection against scuffs and abrasions. UV stabilizers are added, Drytac explains, to prevent discoloration and degradation of both the film and adhesive.

Specialty finishes like Interlam Pro Anti-Graffiti allow for spray paint to be cleaned off the film without adverse effect, Drytac explains, making the products suitable for outdoor signage or retail advertising displays.
