Decorative Paper Foils

DECORATIVE FOILS Decorative foils are an intermediate-range paperbased overlay and are also called impregnated papers. They are generally pre-impregnated with a blend of melamine, acrylic and urea resins during the paper-manufacturing process or post-impregnated after the paper is fully cured. Decorative foils weigh between 40 and 200 grams m2 untreated. During the impregnation process, the cellulose papers typically gain between 20 and 50 percent of their base weight. Those between 100 and 200 grams are dubbed specialty papers and are more likely than lighter-weight varieties to be used for exposed decorative surfaces. DECORATIVE PAPER Light basis weight papers range in weight from 23 to 50 gramsm2. The paper may contain acrylic, polyester or other resins added during the paper making process to improve the internal bond strength. The paper is then printed and topcoated with polyurethane, urea, polyester, acrylic or melamine or a combination thereof for increased durability and performance. For more information check out:
