Thermal Gloss

Thermal Lamination – Litho Gloss Lamination Films are specialised packaging materials used to enhance the visual appeal and durability of printed products. These films are designed to be laminated onto paper or other materials using heat activation.

Litho Gloss Lamination Films are commonly used for high-quality packaging applications, such as magazine covers, book covers, and promotional materials. They offer a premium look and feel that can help brands differentiate their products from competitors. These gloss films give the finished substrate excellent clarity and slip properties. The lamination process also provides an additional layer of protection to the printed material.

These films are available in a range of finishes, including brand-new sustainable options and can be customised to enhance your specific branding and design requirements. The thermal lamination process is fast and efficient, making it a popular choice for small to large-scale production runs.

Thermal BioPP (30% Biobased PP) Gloss

BioPP films are produced using 30% Biobased PP resin obtained from 2nd generation Bio feedstock (waste vegetable cooking oils) and 70% Virgin PP.  These films are made of polypropylene resins of the same quality as traditional fossil fuel-based resins and are ideal for both the graphic arts and packaging industries.  They repurpose waste material into biobased PP, reducing the use of fossil fuel-based resins.  BioPP laminating films offer a sustainable alternative that supports the environment and our sustainability goals.

This high gloss film provides excellent clarity and slip properties.

Thermal Cellulose Acetate Bio-degradable Gloss

Our acetate film is a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic films as it is made from wood pulp, a natural and renewable source. This material is considered paper and board according to UK Packaging waste regulations and is certified to ASTM D6400, EN 13432 standards. Acetate’s base film is biodegradable and accredited with being both home and industrially compostable, making it an eco-friendly option.

The high surface energy of acetate film makes it ideal for printing, varnishing, foil blocking, adhesive coating, and gluing. The finish has an extremely high gloss level and a harder-wearing surface, making it less prone to scratches.
