August 18, 2008

The film substrate offers greater ink adhesion and rub resistance.

LSH Materials, a division of Hutchison Miller Sales, New Britain, PA, USA, has introduced a new topcoated version of its Cothene mono-layered polyolefin film that offers an alternative to vinyl and other films in the health and beauty market, among others. According to the company, the new water based topcoat provides superior ink adhesion and greater rub resistance, allowing converters to deliver more vibrant and durable graphics.
Cothene is composed of a proprietary blend of resins that are specially formulated for a variety of pressure sensitive applications, especially those requiring high quality graphics. Available in frosty clear or white, it is designed for no-label look applications and recyclable with polyolefin substrates.
"Our new topcoated Cothene offers an economical alternative to other topcoated substrates in a wide variety of applications," says Rob Hutchison, president of Hutchison Miller Sales. "Its superior performance characteristics make it easier for printers and converters to deliver the high quality graphics and durability required by their customers."
The film, which can now be thermal-transfer printed, is available in thicknesses from 2 to 6 mils and in widths up to 61". It can be supplied corona treated on one or both sides to a minimum dyne level of 40. The proprietary aqueous topcoat is formulated to print using flexo, offset and gravure print processes.
