Chemical Resistant Polyester Film (Durafol)

    Durafol - thermal transfer printable labelstock that offers superior chemical, temperature and abrasion resistance

    Durafol® is intended to be of particular use in applications requiring extreme chemical and mechanical resistance, including identification in the ADM industry, laboratory facilities, the chemical industry and general industrial labels where variable information, barcode traceability and extreme chemical and abrasion resistance are prerequisites. Durafol’s® superior chemical resistance allows it to be thermal transfer printed and exposed to a variety of harsh chemicals such as toluene, brake fluid, Skydrol® and acetone. Durafol® polyester is available in matt white, matt silver and matt cleares offering superior adhesion, chemical and elevated temperature resistance.

      Industry Standards:

        Skydrol® is a registered trademark of Solutia Inc

        Test Labels were thermal transfer printed with

        Ricoh B110CU ribbon

        The use of other ribbons is not recommended

        Small desktop printers are also not recommmended

        due to insuffient pressure and print head energy.

        Note - Durafol will only offer the above chemical

        resistance when printed with recommended ribbon

        and an industrial thermal transfer printer.

        The amount of ribbon transfer is rated against the

        AATCC colour chart; 1 to 5

        1=high percentage print/colour transfer onto

        crocking cloth

        5= no print/colour transfer on to crocking cloth
