Hard-wearing transparent facestock film for demanding applications: For the production of safety labels, product labels or labels to be printed with variable information in the fields of durables, home & personal care and pharmaceuticals.
P-50 transparent M1-LS is a transparent PET facestock film, with the front side matt coated for the printing of variable information using laser, thermal transfer or dot-matrix printers, and untreated reverse.
In addition to a better CO2 balance, this film’s process characteristics are similar to standard PET films. No change to the processes is necessary. Self-adhesive coaters benefit from low transport and storage costs (1 product for 2 printing technologies). BS5609 section 3 and UL/CSA approvals can be obtained with this facestock media. End customers get a durable, weather- and chemical-resistant product with high scratch resistance.

For quality reasons PICOFILM should be stored originally packed. Storage and converting conditions of 20 +- 5° C and 50 +-10% rel. humidity are recommended.
We always recommend comprehensive testing of materials prior to regular conversion.
