Tips and Technical Data

Tips For Applying MHL UV Thermal Films:

  • Consider webbing your laminator with a gloss film on top and a luster film on the bottom supply shaft. This will allow you to change the surface finish by feeding in your image either face up or face down.
  • Co-extruded for a carefully balanced ratio of polyester film to adhesive.
  • Use your idler bar to increase the area of contact between the heated rollers and the film.
  • To allow for proper heat recovery, laminators with smaller diameter rollers require a slower processing speed and / or higher operating temperature for the best results.
  • MHL laminating films bond while they are cooling (thermoplastic). This means that it is important that you create a steady uniform tension with the pull rollers (and a cooling system for thicker films) to ensure a smooth, flat encapsulated print without waves or wrinkles.

Technical Data

MHL Low Temperature Lustre is a high clarity, abrasion-resistant PET thermal laminating film with a low melt-point adhesive designed for high-speed single- and double-sided lamination. This overlaminate is specifi cally engineered with UV inhibitors to reduce image fading and protect against moisture. Its low sealing temperature preserves inks in digitally printed graphics, which can deteriorate at high temperatures. The film is resistant to water, oil, acid, and alkali and can be die cut. A 3 mil (75µ) and 5 mil (125µ) version are available.

Typical Applications
  • Engineered for large format output.
  • Increases rigidity and strength of media.
  • Preserves graphic images over time.
