Primer:

Autoflex® EB has an ink adhesion primer on the second surface. There are two primer options, one for solvent inks, the other for UV inks.  These primers provide excellent adhesion to a wide range of graphic inks. For information on which primer is suitable for digital printing please contact - salessupport@macdermidautotype.com.

 

Please note that some of the electrical and mechanical properties of the 7 series films differs from the standard product.  Please refer to the Autoflex ®(7 Series) product data sheet. 

 

Laminate:

Polyester films with high gloss surfaces are prone to blocking when stored with the film surfaces touching each other. Blocking is the term given when two surfaces adhere or merge into each other and when separated leave un-removable marks on the film. For this reason MacDermid Autotype supply the Autoflex® film range with a protective laminate and recommend that the laminate remains in place until the first print pass.

 

Textures:

Autoflex® EB can be screen printed with Fototex™ to obtain selective textures (see Fototex™ product data sheet).

 

Outdoor use:

In common with most other plastics, Autoflex® EB has limited long term resistance to UV light and therefore is not recommended for long term use outdoors. MacDermid Autotype has developed a textured, UV resistant film, which can be used outside. Please see Autotex« XE Product Data Sheet.

 

No outdoor version of Autoflex® EB is available.
