‘Soft touch’ film combines wear resistance with tactile features
13 March 2012
MacDermid Autotype's new Autotex Softouch film provides a fine flat matt surface with a soft, tactile finish, coupled with resistance to surface wear, abrasion and a wide range of chemicals and solvents. It can be used to provide a suitable surface for nameplates or membrane switches, or wherever a high quality tactile experience is required. The film can be easily embossed, creating domed switches that can withstand over 5 million actuations.
As well as maintaining formability and flexibility with inherent robustness, Softouch offers exceptional image definition and compatibility with conventional and specialised screen inks. Outstanding high clarity displays can also be produced in combination with MacDermid Autotype’s Windotex lacquer.
The new film complements MacDermid Autotype’s existing range of textured products, giving industrial designers a choice of finishes, including gloss, antiglare, fine, velvet, metallic effect (such as Autotex Steel) and now Softouch - all from a single supplier.
Autotex Softouch is supplied in roll or sheet format, and thicknesses of either 150 or 200 microns.
