reflex™ LT Digital Hardcoated Film
reflex™ LT Digital Hardcoated Polyester is constructed on a durable polyester base film. TC Transcontinental then applies a proprietary, advanced UV cured texture with antimicrobial functionality on one side that exhibits a uniform structure with excellent cosmetic and tactile properties. On the second surface is a proven print receptive layer for UV Ink Jet printing systems and screen printed solvent and UV based ink systems.
Antimicrobial films are designed to eliminate the growth of harmful organisms such as bacteria, mold and fungi. The antimicrobial performance of reflex™ LT hardcoated film is achieved by incorporating SteriTouch® antimicrobial additive during the manufacturing process. All active components used by SteriTouch® hold EPA and FDA approvals for food contact, as well as being supported for inclusion on the Biocidal Products Regulation, enabling their use throughout Europe and North America.
The reflex™ range of products are high performance overlay films developed to meet the exacting requirements for HMI (Human Machine Interface) and other graphic applications where durability is essential. Screen Printers, Membrane Touch Switch, Fascia and Graphic Overlay manufacturers together with their end users agree that reflex™ LT textured, scratch and solvent resistant polyester film is ideal for applications and products used in high touch or hygienic settings such as healthcare and catering. The SeriTouch® integration process ensures even distribution of the SteriTouch® antimicrobial agent throughout the hardcoated film surface providing a reliable, stable bacterial barrier.
TC Transcontinental has designed the optimal performance combination in hardness, embossability, chemical resistance and extensive switch actuation life without sacrificing the ability to die cut their hardcoated films.
