Kernow Coatings’ has launched KernowJet KlearWipe, a clear PVC-free lamination film for dry-erase applications and the video on the company’s website demonstrates the “incredible” results.
Its thickness (75µm) and stiffness makes it easier to apply than other dry-erase laminates, says Kernow. KlearWipe is extremely durable and scratch-resistant, making it easy to handle and ensuring that it wont be damaged during lamination.
Highly transparent and with a special permanent adhesive, it will laminate over all kind of prints, even UV-cured inks and is available in widths up to 1524mm.
Benefits for end users include the fact that the film has been tested with a wide range of water-based, solvent and acetone-based markers, KernowJet KlearWipe passes all the tests. In addition, no pearling of the inks when writing and “perfect erasability” leaves no ink residue even after a long delay. Even permanent markers can be cleaned off with alcohol without damaging the film, says Kernow.
Dry erase surfaces start to look tatty once they have been scratched and the ink imbeds inside the scratch. Due to it’s incredible scratch-resistance KernowJet KlearWipe is “the perfect solution for long term dry-erase surfaces”.
Kernow says this product is perfect for whiteboard and blackboard lamination for use in schools, offices, meeting rooms, convention centres and for creating restaurant wall display menus, calendars, production and warehouse planning.
The material is compliant with Standards: EN71-3 which are necessary for the safety of toys and is therefore suitable for children’s furniture, toys and whiteboards.
