Flexibility and elongation are the key for formable film coating

  • High elongation
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Dual cure

With more and more substrate coatings moving to plastics film coating technology for flat and curved shapes of parts, allnex continues to develop various resin solutions to meet with the evolving film coating market. Are you in the transition to film coating application? Our expertise can help you to create the optimal solution.

Melamines resin for high performance foils and films

  • Economical film systems cost
  • Water soluble
  • Enable fast cure

Melamine resins are used in acrylic and other liquid coatings systems to provide protective layers on paper, board stock, filtration media and other laminate types using a variety of applications techniques in order to economically provide high performing surface protection and appearance properties. CYMEL© 385 is one such resin used for these applications - it is fully soluble in water and provides fast cure properties resulting in high film hardness and low formaldehyde release during cure.

Decorative paper and foils: design meets the highest performance available

  • High Surface Hardness and scratch resistance
  • Haptics and aesthetics
  • UV/EB cure for maximum productivity

Where countless options for haptic and aesthetics join the highest surface performance specification, our UV/EB-cure EBECRYL® range brings resistance to the decorative surface with the maximum process efficiency and absolute design freedom.
