BOPP film manufacturer Innovia has launched its new Rayoart high clarity and brilliant white graphic arts films, which are thinner than its other film products by a third.

Compatible with flexographic, UV inkjet, low temperature latex inkjet, and screen printing processes, Rayoart is suitable for flat and simple curved graphic applications or pressure-sensitive labels requiring outdoor usage, according to Rochard Southward, global product manager for labels at Innovia.

“These 60µm (240 gauge) films are now 33 per cent thinner than our existing graphic films,” he said. “They retain their high conversion stability during adhesive lamination and printing and are extremely easy to apply or remove at both high and low temperatures.”

The range is a viable alternative to calendared PVC, adds Southward. “The new Rayoart films are ideal for indoor and short term outdoor applications, as these UV stabilized products provide up to two years outdoor usage based on QUV testing.”
