New Mondi Liner Banishes Air Bubbles for Self-Adhesive Graphic Arts Applications

AirXLiner CCK makes debut at SGIA Expo 2014

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. —October 22, 2014 — Mondi North America has introduced the AirXLiner CCK, the industry’s first structured clay-coated kraft (CCK) paper liner. As a CCK-based liner, the AirXLiner allows faster converting speeds and prevents bubbles from forming during the application of self-adhesive graphic arts products. AirXLiner CCK can be used for a variety of products, including car wrapping applications and advertising films. The AirXLiner CCK is on display at SGIA Expo 2014, Las Vegas Convention Center, where Mondi North America occupies Booth 4708.

Until now, structured liners have only been available on PCK (poly-coated kraft paper). AirXLiner CCK brings clear advantages to our customers in the graphic arts market. We listened to our customers’ needs for faster, more efficient application of their graphics products. The result is AirXLiner CCK, a structured clay-coated liner that will — with most adhesive films — banish bubbles instantly and has a greater heat resistance for faster, more cost-efficient production and application of a laminate.

Compared to plain liners, structured CCK liners perform better by creating an air egress function that eliminates bubbles or wrinkles when the backing material is applied. Ridges on the liner create channels in the adhesive layer that show their full effect during the final application of the pressure-sensitive adhesive PVC film. These new product features improve both time and cost efficiency by accelerating the liner application and thereby significantly reducing conversion costs.

Compared to PCK liners, CCK liners are more heat resistant and allow higher converting speeds during production. CCK liners are found mainly in plotter film applications and over-laminating films.

The AirXLiner CCK is an innovative new addition to Mondi’s portfolio of structured liners, which already includes structured PCK liners. Mondi liners provide excellent lay-flat properties and dimensional stability.
