LexJet is pleased to announce the launch of ClearShield Thermal Laminates, which includes 20 new products with a variety of thicknesses and finishes. Ranging from 3 mil to 15 mil with luster, matte, gloss, smooth, textured and opaque finishes, this line of thermal laminates provide extra protection for a wide range of applications, from menus to trade shows.
Many of the ClearShield thermal laminates replace former products, and the new line has been re-engineered to provide higher quality and clearer finishes at a lower cost.
“With our expanded line of print protection products, we’ve got our customers covered with the largest variety of thermal, liquid and pressure sensitive products available on the market,” says LexJet product specialist, Kara Work. “And the great news is that with ClearShield, we’re offering better low-melt products at lower price … to the tune of a 30- to 50-precent cost reduction.”
Two all-new products to the market include ClearShield™ 3 Mil SoftFeel Low Melt and ClearShield™ 5 Mil SoftFeel Low Melt, which provide an elegant, scuff-resistant finish to luxury packaging, fine art prints and menus. “With our new SoftFeel thermal laminates, we can offer printers the option to produce customized, shorter runs with a zero-glare, non-textured, soft velvety feel that they could only get with high-volume graphic finishing in the past.”
LexJet’s thermal laminates provide high clarity, increased bond strength, superior resistance to abrasion, water, oil, acid and alkali and are perfect for high-production runs on bond inkjet paper, microporous-coated inkjet paper, electrostatic and continuous tone photographic prints. Thermal laminates work perfectly on any microporous coated paper/polyester, and are also suitable for hybrid and microporous coatings.
