ClearShield™ 5 Mil Smooth Hard Coat Low Melt is a low-melt thermal laminating film that can help convert silver-halide-processed photo prints and prints from electrographic (toner-based) presses into indestructible graphics for trade-show and exhibit graphics.
The innovative hard-coat surface provides a high level of scratch resistance. UV inhibitors in the adhesive protect the film and colors in the print from the harmful effects of sustained exposure to sunlight or fluorescent lighting.
The ultra-low-gloss of the film minimizes glare, ensuring that trade show graphics remain easily readable, even under the bright lights of the trade-show floor.
The low-melt adhesives bond so well with photographic prints and bond papers that graphics sandwiched between 5 Mil ArmorGuard Ultra Low Gloss film and one of LexJet’s low-melt backers will resist damage such as tunneling or delaminating, even when the graphic panels are repeatedly rolled and unrolled for transport from one trade-show site to the next.
