Its chemical composition does not require the use of a cross-linker with benefits such as ease of use and reuse of press leftovers. "PreCoat FMET P13 AE” is also suitable for printing on AlOx coated PET providing the thermal resistance and bond strength required for high-performance packaging.

Showing high block resistance

The primer has been developed specifically for the flexible packaging industry; it is aimed at customers interested in products in line with the latest regulations concerning the printing of packaging and its recycling. The product does not require the use of isocyanate or any other cross-linker and is free of PVC or PVDC polymers. Showing high block resistance, it can be used with full web coverage avoiding on-register printing. It can be overprinted with a variety of ink series which increases their application range.
The primer is now available for all EMEA flexible packaging converters.
