Covestro - Films - Films for Graphics, Signs and Labels

Films for graphical applications, labels, signs and displays

High transparency, clearly legible information

Graphical applications have long become a successful area of application for Covestro brand polycarbonate films Makrofol® and Bayfol®. These include for example advertising panels, signs, labels, displays, membrane switches with symbols and control panels with capacitive switches. Also our Platilon® TPE films enjoy increasing success.

Accurate printing

Makrofol® and Bayfol® can be printed economically, in most cases even in short runs, with easily legible information by means of screen, offset and digital printing. These engineered films are used in a variety of markets including automotive, appliance, cards, (security and smart cards), medical, nameplate and labels, packaging, point-of-purchase (including signage), telecommunications and other hand-held electronics.

With transparent Makrofol® grades, the back of the film can also be used in order to protect the printed symbols, logos and characters from abrasion and scratching. We are constantly delivering product innovations for the graphics market segment. One current example are hardcoat high-gloss films with excellent scratch, abrasion and UV resistance. These films are also very resistant to common, everyday chemicals.

Transparent laminates for manufacturing of displays and signs

Our Platilon® TPU films are enjoying increasing success, particularly in the production of displays and signs. They serve as components in transparent composites produced via the vacuum lamination process. Their outstanding compatibility with polycarbonate, PMMA and other glass-like materials is due in part to a primer integrated into the films. They are also free of crosslinking agents for simple storage and processing.

Multilayer films with optimized adhesion properties

A recent innovation for the graphics segment are Platilon® adhesion-optimized, multilayer polyurethane films. These are highly flexible, free of waxes and plasticizers, easily fused and have a pleasantly warm feel. They are much easier to print, bond and laminate in comparison to standard TPU films.

Possible applications are for example:

  • Iron-on labels
  • Info- and printed sealing tapes

and many more…
