  • New specialty films for digital printers

    Jet Tech’s new thermal laminating films.

    Jet Technologies has released a new range of thermal laminating films for the digital printing industry.

    Thermal lamination is the process of bonding film to paper using heat and pressure. The process adds value by providing aesthetic enhancement and protection from creasing, fading, scuff marks, water damage, wrinkles, stains, smudges, abrasions or marks from grease or fingerprints.

    “We’re very excited to be launching a new range of innovative thermal laminating films for digital printers,” says Jack Malki, director, Jet Technologies. “The films are the perfect solution for small to medium size digital printers who regularly manage short run prints, because it delivers these printers a cost-effective option for Soft Touch and Anti-Scuff films for the first time.”

    The new range of thermal lamination films offers both Soft Touch and Anti-Scuff films to digital printers for the very first time. The films, which have better adhesive for digital printing, are designed for A4 and A3 printing. They are available on smaller rolls and allow for quick turnaround and short run laminating, as the finishes can be immediately laminated, even with the darkest of prints.

    The range includes both gloss and matte, anti-scuff, and Soft Touch from Derprosa, the inventors of soft touch top-coating technology.

    The new films are approved for use with a number of digital print systems including HP 12000, Konica Minolta’s Acurio C6100 and bizhub PRESS C1060, along with the MGI, and from Fuji Xerox the Docucolor 550, iGen4 & iGen5, Versant 3100, and the Colorpress 1000i Press.
