Upcocoat® is a texturized release polyester film with an acrylic transfer coating. The EB cured coating is transferred onto the receiving substrate - typically melamine - while the textured PET is peeled off. The result is a surface with highly functional properties such as anti-scratch, anti-fingerprint, velvet touch, UV blocking and others according to client requirements.
Upcocoat® ‘s transparency, flatness, humidity resistance and high bonding guarantee easy handling and maximum efficiency in any lamination process.
Upcocoat® is compatible with a vast range of melamine resins and glues and designed to becoming the surface of laminates, lacquered boards and surfaces on HDF, MDF and particle boards, and any other materials where a special surface finishing is required. In TX2 version the antistatic release-coating helps the customer to handle the film during the surface finishing process.
Using Upcocoat® Duogloss as a release carrier, Upcocoat® is now able to combine design possibilities with its functional properties.
The Upcocoat® product range includes an ECO version containing 90% recycled PET (rPET) coming from post-consumer recycling of plastic waste material (plastic bottles, food trays, etc.). Upcocoat® ECO products have the same guaranteed final features and performance as standard Upco® products.
Today the Upcocoat ® range includes 6 different versions each one with specific characteristics and compatible with the different production processes of our customers (HPL, CPL, LPL/TFL).
