Nobelus Extends Popular SmudgeProof Laminate Line
Nobelus, known for its specialty line of films for the print and packaging trade, extends its successful smudge-resistant thermal film line with the launch of SmudgeProof Laminate with DigiBOND adhesive.
This clear, OPP film guards against scuff marks, smudges, and fingerprints, allowing prints, packaging and book covers to boast beautiful tactility without showing wear. The unique DigiBOND adhesive, used on the SmudgeProof base film, is made especially for digital toner presses from companies such as Xerox, Kodak, Konica Minolta, and Ricoh.
The 1.2 mil protective laminate performs well in digital applications prone to more handling while retaining the signature petal-soft feel. The film’s high surface energy makes an excellent platform for post-print embellishments, especially detailed Scodix artwork.
“We’re excited to extend our SmudgeProof protective film out to a broader group of digital print providers,” says Tom Snooks, Consumables Product Manager at Nobelus. “Our clients with HP Indigo presses have utilized the standard version of this thermal laminate for years and with the rollout of the DigiBOND option now more clients can add this smudge-proof film to their finishing portfolio.”
This launch is evidence of Nobelus’ continued commitment to offer brand owners, publishers, and print finishers a broad range of high-performance specialty finishes to elevate the consumer experience.
