Argotec Announces New ArgoGraph® 46510 Overlaminate Facestock Graphics Film

GREENFIELD, MA USA — Argotec, Inc., of Greenfield Massachusetts U.S.A., today announced the introduction of its new ArgoGraph® 46510 Overlaminate Facestock Graphics Film. Historically, film coaters and converters serving the graphics industry have had to choose between clear or conformable or durable graphic overlaminate films. The introduction of ArgoGraph 46510 now gives them another choice: clear and conformable and durable in the same film product.

Formulated from the same base aliphatic thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) resin used to make Argotec’s highly successful 6-mil automotive paint protection films, 1-mil ArgoGraph 46510 Overlaminate Facestock Graphics Film preserves, protects and prolongs the life of advertising and decorative graphics in similarly rugged environments. It may be used on a wide variety of applications, including: wraps and decals for cars; motor coach decorations; fleet truck graphics; motorcycle/dirt bike/ATV and snowmobile decals; power tool labels; sport helmet decorations; public transit advertising graphics; trade show graphics; sports arena graphics; floor advertising graphics; product identification labeling; lawn & garden equipment; and many more.

ArgoGraph 46510 Overlaminate Facestock Graphics Film is well-suited for use in protecting graphics wherever they will be exposed to sun, weather or temperature extremes, heavy use, or abrasive conditions. It exhibits all the desirable characteristics inherent in highly durable aliphatic polyurethanes. These include: abrasion and chip resistance; good hot and cold temperature performance, cold-crack resistance; non-yellowing, UV resistance; no plasticizers to migrate and cause embrittlement or adhesive incompatibility; no additives for consistent adhesive compatibility/anchorage; resistance to hydrocarbons, ozone, bugs, road chemicals, bacteria, and fungus; as well as being highly flexible, conformable and halogen-free.

Uncoated, 1-mil-thick ArgoGraph 46510 is available in roll widths up to 62 inches (1.57 meters) and lengths up to 1000 non-spliced lineal yards (914.4 meters). It is extrusion coated onto a high-gloss PET carrier that enables the film to be wound and unwound without the need for TPU processing agents. The result is a film with consistent surface tension for high yield and throughput in the PSA coating process. After coating, it will accept matte, textured or paper film release liners.

Art directors, graphics printers and installers go to great lengths and expense to create graphic images designed to promote a brand, convey a strategic message, or in the case of emergency vehicle signage, to protect people. The right graphic overlaminate film can help deliver and protect that image in the clearest way over a long period of time. Argotec believes that film is ArgoGraph 46510.

Further information, including a copy of Argotec’s white paper "Premium Polyurethane Overlaminate Facestock for Graphics Protection," which compares the relative clarity, conformability and durability of TPU overlaminate films versus PET, Vinyl and PVF films, may be obtained by calling (413)772-2564, faxing (413)772-2565, e-mailing, or downloading it from the Argotec website:
