Mactac launches retro-reflective films

Mactac has expanded its Lintec labelstock portfolio with retro-reflective films designed for warehouse applications and industrial labeling

Mactac has expanded its Lintec labelstock portfolio with retro-reflective films designed for warehouse applications and industrial labeling, enabling long-range barcode scanning.

The films are constructed from a polyester material embedded with glass beads that enable long-range barcode scanning from up to 50 ft distance. Retro-reflective films feature long-term indoor durability and up to two years of outdoor durability.

‘The glass beads give the retro-reflective polyester films a light silver appearance and allow barcode scanning from a distance, making them great for warehouses and other applications where pallets or products are often stacked and harder to reach,’ said Cassandra Semonin, marketing manager at Mactac Performance Adhesives.

Retro-reflective films are top-coated for enhanced printability with thermal transfer and flexographic print methods. 

The new LTCRRF01 is a 3.9-mil polyester with an 89# blue Kraft liner and a high-performance low-ooze acrylic adhesive (P0066), offering higher tack and adhesion to various high and low energy substrates, including textured and rough surfaces.

The second product in the new range, LTCRRF02, is 3.9-mil polyester with a 50# white glassine liner and a versatile, high-performance low-ooze permanent acrylic adhesive (PAT1) designed for a variety of general durable applications and conditions offering hold and adhesion to many high and low energy substrates.

Both low-ooze adhesives offer cleaner on-press and thermal transfer print performance and reduce the risk of label peel-off.
