Over-laminate films

Applying a clear film to the printed surface of labels is termed over-lamination. This process has several functions including achieving water resistance, protecting the printed surface, and it offers design-related benefits such as forming a glossy or matt finish.

Protection of the printed surface

Over-lamination of the label has the effects of protecting the print from colour-deterioration. This maintains quality of the labels with high-quality appearance.

Preventing colour loss due to UV light

Lintec offers a series of products that eliminate ultraviolet light as a result of over-laminating UV-cut films. These are mostly for outdoor use, and the labels remain affixed for long periods without colour loss.

Ability to print after over-lamination

Applying top-coating on the over-laminating film makes it possible to print bar-codes clearly with high durability while maintaining visibility of the labels.
