Two-in-one: Color Laser Film Translucent for labelling & connection at the same time
30 April 2021
Human skin, wax & leaves: at first glance, there’s no apparent connection between them. However, contact with a light source shows what they have in common: they’re translucent. Translucence refers to the partial light permeability of an object and is a characteristic that can frequently be found in sectors like household appliances, mobility & consumer electronics using backlit displays with symbols or text.
Schreiner ProTech now offers an integrated film-based solution for such displays: the FINAT award-winning Color Laser Film (CLF) Translucent, a flexible alternative to pre-printed design films. It rolls the functions of marking and bonding into one flexible, efficient, innovative and customisable product.
A translucent layer is required to ensure the desired light permeability. The label from Schreiner ProTech combines the advantages of the proven Color Laser Film with the characteristic of translucency. It enables customised backlighting to be achieved in a wide variety of versions and simultaneously serves as a means of bonding the display glass and the device. Late-stage customisation is a key benefit of this film solution. In this context, it refers to the flexibility of performing customised, version-specific marking, even at the customer’s site. The inscription can also be performed through the display glass, which reduces both the number of display versions and required inventory levels. Moreover, the product is resistant against cleaning agents. Another difference between the previously existing and the Color Laser Film Translucent is that the latter is an adhesive and an inscribable film rolled into one. During the development of the product, Schreiner Group’s developers benefitted from their extensive technical know-how and years of experience in adhesion technology. Besides serving as a means of bonding to the device, the Color Laser Film equalises height differences. The extremely durable adhesive features a special composition that does not impair the film’s translucence.
On request, the composition and thickness of the translucent Color Laser Film can be selected so that the film can replace the display.
