Manufacturer’s Description

MHL Gloss 5mil 51 x 250' Low Melt Thermal Laminating Film MHL Gloss 5mil 51 x 250' UV Low Melt films offer superior clarity and lower melting temperatures. The adhesive used is formulated to activate at temperatures as low as 190 F - 220 F. MHL Gloss UV films are ideal for encapsulation of xerographic and inkjet-bond output. While many operators prefer using 3.0 mil MHL Gloss UV on the top and a 5.0 or 10 mil film on the bottom for added rigidity, any combination of thicknesses will provide bright, punch colors and optimum clarity. Get 51 x 250' of 5mil MHL Gloss UV Low Melt film with every order. Product number MGD51205. Technical Specifications Film Width: 51 Film Length: 250' Film Thickness: 5.0mil Core Size: 3 Finish: High Gloss Base Film: 3.0mil (25 micron) polyester Adhesive: 2.0 mil (25 micron) co-extruded polyethylene copolymer Initial Tack: None Application Speed: 1' - 8' per minute Application Temperature: 200 F - 230 F Release Liner: None MHL Low Temp Thermal Overlaminating Film Tips and Details MHL overlaminating films are specifically developed for multi-heat roller laminators (MHL) and hotshoe laminators. These high quality laminating / encapsulating films are co-extruded for a carefully balanced ratio of polyester film to adhesive. The result is higher clarity for more vibrant colors, reduced orange peel, greater rigidity (which reduces wrinkles and waves) and better adhesive flow characteristics (wet out). MHL laminating films are available in a variety of thicknesses and finishes from standard gloss and lustre finishes to scratch-resistant films suitable for outdoor applications. All MHL films are suitable for both single sided and double sided laminating (encapsulation) of photographic, electrostatic, inkjet-bond, xerographic and lithographic output, as well as many more applications. These films also incorporate UV absorbers for excellent protection from damaging UV rays. Tips For Applying MHL UV Thermal Films: Consider webbing your laminator with a gloss film on top and a luster film on the bottom supply shaft. This will allow you to change the surface finish by feeding in your image either face up or face down. Use your idler bar to increase the area of contact between the heated rollers and the film. To allow for proper heat recovery, laminators with smaller diameter rollers require a slower processing speed and / or higher operating temperature for the best results. MHL laminating films bond while they are cooling (thermoplastic). This means that it is important that you create a steady uniform tension with the pull rollers (and a cooling system for thicker films) to ensure a smooth, flat encapsulated print without waves or wrinkles.
