ClearShield™ 5 Mil Textured Hard Coat Low Melt laminating film provides a fast, cost-effective option for converting output from digital photo imagers and toner-based presses into durable mural panels and headers for trade-show booth graphics. Resembling polycarbonate and Lexan, ArmorGuard features a textured finish that minimizes glare and the appearance of fingerprints.
The film is backed by a heat-activated (thermal) adhesive that softens and starts bonding to the print at lower temperatures than conventional thermal laminating films.
The one-piece construction and aggressive adhesive of 5 Mil ArmorGuard Ti ensures that the film remains clear and well-bonded, and minimizes the risk of production defects such as silvering, tunneling and delaminating.
