35 - 48 Gauge Chemically Pre-Treated Polyester Film
Phoenix "PET PK" is a biaxially oriented polyester film with chemical pre-treatment on one side to improve its printability and adhesion. It offers high tensile strength, good dimensional stability and high heat resistance. This higher adhesion polyester may be rotogravure or flexographically printed with ordinary solvent and water base ink systems. "PET PK" provides excellent bond strength and is intended for either adhesive or extrusion lamination. It has the following features:
- High gloss and excellent surface smoothness
- Strong adhesive bonding
- High tensile strength and low elongation
- Proper slip and stiffness for good machineability
- Excellent heat resistance and dimensional stability
