Improve Ink Adhesion with Face Films
Ameri-Cal offers chemical and physical surface treatments to enhance ink adhesion for digital, UV, thermal transfer and other print methods. We specialize in metalized, brushed, dyed and holographic face films with either emulsion or solvent adhesive coatings.
Many high-slip films have low surface energies, which reduce an adhesive’s effectiveness, increasing the likelihood of slippage. Face films create a boundary layer that prevents the ink binder from sticking to the substrate. This technique allows for multi-layered constructions and provides enhanced printability, scratch resistance, and UV stability.
Available Face Film Options
Ameri-Cal’s array of face films include:
- Polyester (PET and Cavitated PET)
- Vinyl (PVC)
- Polyethylene (PE)
- Polyimide (PI)
- Polycarbonate (PC)
- Aluminum Foil
- Polyolefin (TPO)
Whatever the application, Ameri-Cal can find a face film adhesive solution that works for you.
