KDX introduces a new thin gauge gloss laminating film

KDX, one of the leaders in the manufacture of advanced polymer materials including thermal laminating films, BOPP wet films and  3D lenticular solutions, has added a thin gauge BOPP gloss laminating film to its portfolio. The new thin film is aimed at Printers and Print Trade Finishers with high volume production laminating equipment.

The new film is available in 18-micron gloss and 20-micron matte and is a cost-effective solution for high volume requirements that still maintains its quality. This new gloss film is a general purpose product and does exhibit excellent ‘burst’ properties which give an even distribution of adhesive, making it suitable for folding, creasing and many other finishing applications. The film has transparency, plus a good gloss level and excellent low static characteristics to further enhance production efficiency.

Michel Diruy, general manager KDX Europe, said, “The new thin gauge gloss or matte film is a ground-breaking product offering overall quality with a great performance. It is ideal for everyday use, especially large scale production where cost effectiveness needs to be taken into account. It has a good level of adhesion on offset printed work. Nevertheless, for heavy ink coverage, KDX does recommend the use of the regular gloss 25-micron and matt 26-micron.”

KDX has direct routes to market in the UK and Europe and are supplying printers, finishers and converters directly in these areas. The company has European warehousing and logistics set up for next day delivery within the UK.
