Quality assurance

For this reason, the certification of materials is of the utmost importance in PrintoLUX®'s quality assurance and product development activities. We invest a lot of time and money to identify and extensively test a large number of potential substrates for certification.

Durability

As a process supplier, we reliably meet the highest customer requirements with regard to the quality and durability of labels. However, this also means that we can only guarantee our customers the high durability and excellent presentation of printed products if PrintoLUX®-certified materials are used.

Material variety

We provide you with a large selection of standards in different materials, formats and thicknesses. Individual formats according to the specifications of our customers are of course also available. If you have any questions on the subject of materials or require a format other than our standard formats, please do not hesitate to contact us.

PrintoLUX® certified materials in the overview

Our know-how and the associated great customer benefit lies not only in the sale of good printing systems, but also in the high-performance definition of all components of a process for marking production and their optimal coordination in use.
The same applies to the materials we certify, which play a key role in the performance of our process.

Durability matrix

The requirements for the use of markings and their manufacture are the determining factors for the material to be used. You can make an initial selection on the basis of our resistance matrix. We guarantee the properties shown for our materials. These properties are to be understood as guideline values. These properties can be influenced by special local conditions. It is therefore the responsibility of each user to check the suitability of the materials for his specific application.

Detailed information on our resistance tests can be found either in the PrintoLUX catalogue or in the test reports of the individual materials.

AV, Aluminium composite material

The PrintoLUX®-AV material is already used by many plant and machine manufacturers as a marking standard. The shield material consists of a polyester mixture. This aluminium is manufactured as a composite material and coated on both sides with plastic. It has a dark polyethylene core. The white surface is matt. With the many types of aluminium composite material available, only the material determined and certified by us as part of the PrintoLUX® process functions perfectly. With our certification, we guarantee the high pressure resistance typical of this process. We check every new batch/material delivery for changes that could affect our pressure resistance.

Important:

When thermosetting this material, very precise temperature control must be ensured. This requires the use of an industrial heating furnace. Only smaller formats can be perfectly cured with our standard heating units.

PD, Polyester decorative foil

The PrintoLUX®-PD material is already used by many plant and machine manufacturers as a marking standard. The shield material consists of a specially coated polyester. This is screen-printed on one side. In addition, our PrintoLUX®-PD material can be assembled with two PrintoLUX® standard adhesives.
Originally, we only offered this material as a keyboard foil. In the meantime, it has been used extensively for adhesive signs, as this film is much easier to install than a conventional adhesive film. The higher material price is more than compensated by the lower installation costs. Another advantage: The adhesive strength of the polyester decorative film can be varied as required.
The material is often used to produce type plates and control cabinet plates.

Extensive tests in our company have shown that with the large number of commercially available polyester decorative films, only the material selected by us achieves the outstanding quality and durability that have made PrintoLUX® so successful. With every new delivery of the material, we check whether any changes have been made to the manufacturing process that affect our pressure resistance.

In addition to the standard colours, the film is available in any colour. However, there is a minimum purchase of at least 50 sheets in the 600 x 1,200 mm format. In addition, a one-time advance charge of EUR 550 must be paid. In further processing, we can create any format for you from these sheets, or you can use our extensive standard formats.
Our PD films have a thickness of 0.2 or 0.4 mm and are therefore very easy to install. This material thickness enables the compensation of unevenness of the surface to be covered.
