Our Sandtex pressure-sensitive laminate film has rarely been so urgently needed

Posted by Louise 20/04/2020 0 Comment(s) Prizma,

The past month, it is fair to say, has brought some very unusual sights to British streets, homes and commercial premises, and we are not merely referring to the desolate city centres and frequent home working.


That’s because almost anyone who has walked into a UK supermarket recently will also be familiar with the social distancing indicators that are now seeing widespread use on the floors of such establishments.


Consequently, floor graphics media are presently having something of a moment, due to their use in the production of such indicators. If you are in need of similar indoor floor graphics for a setting such as a shop, supermarket, shopping centre or exhibition centre, we are pleased to be able to bring you the pressure-sensitive laminate film to suit.


A highly relevant 150-micron film


We offer Prizma Graphics-branded Sandtex pressure-sensitive lamination film under the LST product code, with three roll sizes available; 880mm x 50m, 1040mm x 50m and 1300mm x 50m, all on a 3” core.


Of equal relevance to end users of this 150-micron film, however, will be its effectiveness at shielding inkjet prints from abrasion, pollution and moisture. As a result, the lifespan of the laminated print can be extended by up to four times.


While this product is not solely relevant to floor graphics – its scuff-resistant textured finish also making it suitable for pop-up and roll-up exhibition graphics – it is in particular demand right now for the aforementioned public environments, where visible guidance on social distancing is so important.


Why else should you take an interest in this highly regarded product?


Our Sandtex pressure-sensitive laminate film offers all of the qualities that you are likely to appreciate for the protection of printed graphics, as well as other graphics that people may frequently come into physical contact with.


Ease of handling is ensured by a silicone release paper, while this film has also been fully tested, and is trusted as a scratch-resistant, anti-slip and hardwearing form of lamination. It also sports a satin finish once applied.


It should be especially noted that this is a pressure-sensitive laminate, as opposed to encapsulation laminate. This means that only low heat is required to apply the film to the printed graphics, which can be produced using pigment, solvent or UV inks.


The laminate is applied over the printed graphics prior to their application to the floor, thereby ensuring complete durability and protection.


Whatever the circumstances, we can serve your needs


We may be in highly unusual times, but some things don’t change! Our team here at Prizma Graphics, for instance, remains ready and available to cater to your requirements in relation to any and all aspects of wide-format printing represented in our online store.


Don’t forget that if you have any queries about the suitability of this laminate film or any of our other in-demand media for your intended application, you are always welcome to contact our professional and friendly staff today, via email or by calling 01296 393700.
