- UL approved films
Film face materials typically offer a higher level of durability than papers, including resistance to water, oil and chemicals.
The transparency and conformability vary according to the material, as does the heat resistance.
Films are used to label beverages, Health & Beauty products and consumer electronics as well as signage.
