Folacoat Plus ALU

Strippable coating plate with aluminium base containing the following layers:

Surface: Pink polymer for aqueous- and UV-coating transfer (slipping -/ protection film on top)

Carrier: Polyester / Aluminium-laminate. The composite material of polyester and aluminium provides stability during the cutting and printing process. The anti-friction surface of the slipping film facilitates the movement of the knife of a CAD Cutting System on the polymer surface. Additionally cuts are clearly visible and it is easier to locate the stripping areas.

NOMINAL THICKNESS 1.15 mm: Recommended cutting depth about 0.85 mm (.0335”). If you like to remove the slipping film before cutting, reduce depth by 0.05 mm (.002”). The polyester film in the middle helps to avoid deformations of the carrier-film below. Please make sure that the cut goes correctly through the polymer and slightly into the polyester film in the middle. This now means that an advisable cutting depth was reached. As a result a correct stripping performance will be obtained without partial lifting of the remaining polymer areas.
