ClearShield™ 5 Mil Gloss UV Premium Low Melt laminating film provides the clarity and adhesive strength needed to protect inkjet prints on bond papers or inkjet photo papers with microporous coatings. This film is also good for protecting photographs processed through photo imagers such as the Durst Lambda, Lightjet, or Chromira or graphics printed on electrographic (toner-based) printers.
The exceptional clarity of the premium-grade film comes from its composition. Compared to standard polyester films, Gloss UV Premium Low Melt films have a higher ratio of polyester than adhesive.
ClearShield™ 5 Mil Gloss UV Premium Low Melt contains UV inhibitors to protect the film and underlying graphics from the damaging effects of exposure to sunlight and fluorescent lights. The film itself provides a high level of protection from abrasion, water, and exposure to oil, acids and cleaning solutions.
The film is called "low-melt" because it is backed by a heat-activated (thermal) adhesive that softens and starts bonding to the print at lower temperatures than conventional thermal laminating films.
