Shinoda Anti-Marking Films

A high performance, triple silicon coated anti-marking film that is low maintenance and provides long life. ICP-S Product Characteristics

  • Transparent green coloured anti-marking film
  • Triple layer coating formula to protect the silicon glass beads
  • The silicon coated glass beads are uniformly coated and sealed to the surface of the film base in a dense matrix
  • Three (3) separate layers of protection:
    • 1st layer uses an ink and oil resistant adhesive coating
    • 2nd layer is a primer coating
    • 3rd layer is a silicon top coating
  • The primer coating allows the silicone top coat a firm base to adhere to, which allows:
    • Silicon surface to last much longer
    • Provides a surface that resists ink accumulation
    • Reduces the amount of solvent required for cleaning
    • Reduces frequency required to remove any ink accumulation

Colour Management

Does the colour output from all of your printers match consistently day in and day out? Your client requirements are ever changing and that often means using different print media for different applications. You may need to produce a complete marketing campaign and print the same files on a variety of substrates using various printing technologies. That is where our COBALT colour management specialists can save you time and frustration. Our colour management specialists not only colour correct on a single technology or medium, but dial in each of your devices to hit the same colour, regardless of the media or equipment technology. From aqueous to UV, banner to aluminum composite panels, all your devices will print the same colour. Separate your business even further from the competition by becoming G7 Certified.
