Pressure Sensitive Films

The Hot Press range of pressure-sensitive, or cold laminates is designed for use with the JetMounterTM and other quality roller laminators. The films work well at room temperature and provide superior protection from abrasion, moisture and pollutants. All contain UV stabilisers and absorbers to inhibit fading and discolouration from sunlight.

Pressure Sensitive Film - Double Sided Mount Film

Double Sided Mount Film

This is our most popular pressure sensitive mounting film. It works well with all kinds of laminators and can be applied by hand for special jobs. The product itself is formed from a clear central carrier film, which is coated on both sides with strong adhesive. Each adhesive layer is  protected by a grid-marked carrier paper. The two separate release liners mean this adhesive can be rolled out and cut to the correct size for each  job. Off-cuts  need not be wasted, but used for smaller jobs later.

This product is suitable for all artwork from plain paper and posters to inkjet and photographic media. Due to its strength and flexibility it also works well with plastic based media and textured art papers. Double-sided mount film works well with all kinds of mounting substrates, from white display board and foam centred boards to MDF and rigid plastic boards.

Pressure Sensitive Film - SYNART Transparency Mount Film

Mounting images to clear acrylic panels, originally practised in the sign making industry, is always popular. Creating large, illuminated signs for shopping centres, airports and other public areas, where the work is viewed from a distance, requires a basic, optically clear film. Polypropylene is used as the central core and the product is fine for those looking for an economy product. SYNART™, as its name suggests, is primarily used for the production of acrylic signage; For artwork viewed in the home we  suggest looking at our superior FYNART™ product.

Pressure Sensitive Film - Window Art Mount Film

WindowArtTM Mount Film



Another use of WINDOWART™ is its application to the back of photographs. They can beplaced in an  album but  will still peel off if adjustment is required. When the album is completed to your satisfaction, the prints can then be made permanent by pressing the images with a print roller, which ‘pops’ the micro-pyramids and gives  full adhesive coverage.  WINDOWART™ is  ideal for making temporary signage for walls, doors, counter tops and  vehicles. When making signs  WINDOWART™ is applied to the back of the graphic and then laminated with a top film for durability.

Pressure Sensitive Film - Self Wound Mount Film STANDARD

Self Wound Mount Film - STANDARD

We offer two self wound mounting films for use with laminators which feature an unwind shaft on the top. Self wound mounting films have only one release liner, which is non-stick on both sides. As the roll is unwound the adhesive layer is exposed, so these films cannot be used for cut sheet applications. Additionally the full width of the roll is always used as the film passes through the laminator, making self wound films more suited to volume jobs,  Our STANDARD variant is a general purpose film suitable for most kinds of artwork. It works well with all kinds of mounting substrates, from white display board and foam centred boards to MDF and rigid plastic boards.

Pressure Sensitive Film - Self Wound Mount Film ULTRA

Self Wound Mount Film - ULTRA

Our ULTRA option self wound mounting film is designed for more challenging applications. Mounting substrates such as corex or aluminium are  difficult to achieve a strong bond, this film provides a better result. Similarly, when trying to wrap graphics around the edge of thicker substrates, such as MDF, the extra adhesion this film provides will do the job.

Pressure Sensitive Film - Photo UV Satin Matt

Photo UV Satin Matt 75micron

The finish of this film is a soft and smooth sheen effect. This film is often used to laminate paper posters and prints, as its subtle finish closely mimics that of the printed piece. The satin finish reduces glare but doesn’t reduce contrast. Another use for Satin Matt is as a protective laminate for images in wedding albums. As the film is relatively thin it doesn’t add bulk to the album.

Pressure Sensitive Film - Photo UV Canvastex

Canvastex is durable and, like all laminates, easy to clean, making it ideal for work that is on show in public areas.  Canvastex creates the illusion that the image has been printed onto canvas but is much tougher and easier to maintain.
