The production process consists of three steps:
- The extrusion of first-class polymers melted through a flat or anular die to form a thin microembossed film
- The film printing using water/no solvent inks
- The hot-melt lamination to a non-woven
The Cast film process involves the extrusion of premium polymers melted through a flat die to form a thin multi-layer film. This film is laid down onto the surface of a water-cooled chill roll. The film quenches immediately and keeps its softness before winding. In the case of breathable film a machine direction stretching unit provides the required film breathability.
Films are extruded through a circular die and immediately inflated by air to obtain the best balance between MD and CD mechanical properties. In the case of breathable film a machine direction stretching unit provides the required film breathability.
PRINTINGThe State of the art central drum flexographic printing press represents the best solution to print up to 8 colors. In line printing controls grant precise execution of the design created by our Customers. Water base inks have been in use for years to protect the environment and to avoid solvent retention in the printed products.
Hot melt adhesive lamination provides the flexibility to combine specific nonwovens typology to our film. It is possible to easily alter films or nonwovens to manufacture tailor made laminates according to Customers requests. Our lamination equipment grants the required bonding between the two layers, at the same time preserving the original softness of the non-woven fibers.
