Polyester – PET
Available in Gloss, Matte and Satin
Gloss: Excellent clarity and gloss; better scuff and scratch resistance than other films. Also the best film for heat and chemical resistance.
Matte: The matting agents are dispersed throughout the film and therefore offer much better scuff resistance. It has a slightly higher gloss when compared to Matte OPP; and the Matte PET tends to make the darker colors appear “Milky” or washed out.
Satin: A little glossier than the Matte PET; but with less distortion of the colors. This is the most expensive of the matte films.
Most common applications: Case bound books, POP displays and pocket folders. Best for high demand, long-term applications.
