Jet Technologies has launched its latest innovation – UNILAM Gloss and Matte Thermal Laminating Films – which uses adhesive technology from Japan to provide a superior bond to suit digital or litho printing.
According to the company, as digital print engines have developed over the years, there has been a growing need for a range of films that can handle all of the new inks and systems.
Developed in Japan, UNILAM uses unique adhesive technology that cross-links at lower temperatures than regular thermal films, ensuring a strong bond to all digital print engines.
Tested and approved by leading digital print manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand, Jet Technologies product manager for films Luke Welsh said the laminating films are perfect for use in both digital and mixed environments.
He added that this style of film is excellent for prints that need to be highly embellished and require a high level of bond and security, such as perfect bound books or high-value print where the bond has to be perfect.
“The UNILAM films are one of the most versatile films to hit our product range, with a near-universal compatibility to both digital and offset ink systems,” Welsh said.
“Our clients are loving the security and certainty of being able to laminate whatever print they produce, without worrying about film lifting over a solid black digital print or other complicated applications.
“The new adhesive is also extremely smooth, meaning that the gloss is even glossier than usual, and the matt is silky smooth; We couldn’t be happier with the results.”
UNILAM comes in various widths in 2,000m lengths as well as 318mm widths in shorter 333m lengths for table-top laminators.
