Foils

are semi-rigid to soft surface tempering materials that are applied continually from the roller to the substrate by means of an appropriate system by using glue or adhesive. The laminate foils available are divided into three groups:

1. Foils based on resin-impregnated papers such as priming foils for sealing, polyester resin-impregnated laminates and mixed resin polymerisation impregnated paper foils.

2. Thin paper foils on slightly impregnated, late-weight papers for subsequent possible coating (priming foils, decorative foils, finishing foils).

3. Substrate-less plastic foils on PVC, ABS, UP or PP bases for decorative or finishing foils
