Madico introduces chemical resistant label film

Durafol, now available from Madico Graphic Films, is a thermal transfer printable polyester said to offer excellent chemical, elevated temperature, UV and scratch resistance. Developed as a durable alternative to the more costly and time consuming process of over laminating labels with a clear protective film, it is designed to be of particular use in applications requiring extreme chemical and mechanical resistance.

Superior chemical resistance when printed with a Ricoh B110CU thermal transfer ribbon is confirmed by independent tests carried out by Ricoh, when the product achieved maximum levels of resistance.

“Durafol meets and in most cases exceeds the needs of users by offering 25 per cent improved chemical resistance compared to other films used in the same applications,” states Andy Voss, managing

Director of Madico. “Its superior chemical resistance allows it to be thermal transfer printed and exposed to a variety of harsh chemicals such as toluene, Skydrol, brake fluid and acetone. With conventional grades offered by other suppliers, the print and/or the top coating would be removed when exposed to such harsh fluids.”
