Heat Assist Adhesives

Heat assist adhesives are closely related to pressure sensitive adhesive products, only they require a moderate amount of heat to fully activate and bond to prints. Heat assist adhesives are commonly sheeted prior to use and feature a low to moderate initial tack to maintain their position when placed on top of prints. A disposable release liner that protects the adhesive is removed before lamination. Heat assist films typically activate between 160° F – 200° F. Heat assist adhesives are applied to Vinyl (PVC) lamination films including D&K’s Finish Guard™ framing product line.
