reflex™ LT Textured Antimicrobial Films
reflex antimicrobial films are designed to eliminate the growth of harmful organisms such as bacteria, mold and fungi. The product is a lightly textured, scratch and solvent resistant polyester film that is ideal for applications used in hygienic settings such as healthcare and catering.
reflex™ LT Hardcoated Polyester is constructed on a durable polyester base film. Coveris Advanced Coatings then applies a proprietary, advanced UV cured texture with antimicrobial functionality on one side that exhibits a uniform structure with excellent cosmetic and tactile properties. On the second surface is a proven print receptive layer for UV and solvent based screen printed ink systems.
Antimicrobial films are designed to eliminate the growth of harmful organisms such as bacteria, mould and fungi. The antimicrobial performance of reflex™ LT is achieved by incorporating SteriTouch® antimicrobial additive during the manufacturing process. All active components used by SteriTouch® hold EPA and FDA approvals for food contact, as well as being supported for inclusion on the Biocidal Products Regulation, enabling their use throughout Europe and North America.
The reflex™ range of products are high performance overlay films developed to meet the exacting requirements for HMI (Human Machine Interface) and other graphic applications where durability is essential. Screen Printers, Membrane Touch Switch, Fascia and Graphic Overlay manufacturers together with their end users agree that the reflex™ LT textured, scratch and solvent resistant polyester film is ideal for applications and products used in high touch or hygienic settings such as healthcare and catering. The SeriTouch® integration process ensures even distribution of the SteriTouch® antimicrobial agent throughout the hardcoated film surface providing a reliable, stable bacterial barrier.
Coveris Advanced Coatings has designed the optimal performance combination in hardness, embossability, chemical resistance and extensive switch actuation life without sacrificing the ability to die cut our hardcoated films
