How can I print on DFML?

DFML can be printed on its gloss side, by Screen Printing, or Offset Lithography.  DFML might be suitable for Solvent, Latex or UV Curable Inkjet printing, which are the only digital printing options could work on DFML.  DO NOT USE DFML in any plain paper copier, laser printer, or other heat fusing digital printing technology.

Is DFML Thermoformable?

Yes, DFML is Thermoformable.  However the more you draw this film, the more the micro louvre lens surface gets distorted.  This could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on the diffusion you are trying to create.  For something like this, it is always best to experiment.

Is Acetate film and sheets thermoformable?

Acetate Sheets, Acetate Paper

Because acetate film and sheets soften easily at higher temperatures, it is ideal for thermoforming and heat sealing applications. We highly recommend testing the film to make sure it is suitable for your specific application. Contact us today for samples to test in your thermoforming application.

DuraLar Thermoformability

Plastic Film, Plastic Sheets

Can DuraLar be thermoformed? Not really, we can not recommend any of our grades of Duralar for thermoforming applications.  Because of it’s higher heat tolerance, and bi-axial crystaline structure, it is not the best choice for thermoforming applications.  It’s not impossible but we don’t know many folks using DuraLar for this application.
