Shaun Holdom, Drytac’s newly appointed Global Product Manager, comments: “We’re delighted to add this new solution to our product range. Drytac Protac Anti-Scratch Gloss can be used with cold or heat assisted laminators and features a high-performance adhesive developed by Drytac for the lamination of output from (eco)solvent, latex and UV printers.
“Protac Anti-Scratch Gloss is very durable thanks to its scratch-resistant hard coat. Its formulation ensures that the final printed output has zero shrinkage, high clarity and is resistant to chemicals. The adhesive is a solvent-based permanent acrylic which means it has good moisture resistance, and additionally, the siliconised polyester liner ensures a smoother finish.”
