San Printech introduces ‘Kimoto’ brand Hard Coated Flims & Light diffusion films
26 January 2021: Mumbai based San Printech Pvt. Ltd. a leading supplier of wide range of raw materials, has introduced Kimoto Tech’s Light Diffusion films (Optsaver) and Hard Coated Flims (Elastodur). These films are being used in industrial labels, membrane switch, Keypads, graphic overlays, lighting technology, LED lighting systems, etc.
According to the company, ElastoDur films meets the needs of membrane switch and graphic overlay markets for a flexible material that was mechanically and chemically durable. It offers first surface protection and a printable second surface. The material would also be able to be embossed, laminated and die cut into finished sizes for downstream applications. The ElastoDur line of films continues to evolve with a choice of surface finishes that provides protection, aesthetics and functionality when integrated into human machine interface technologies, flexible printed electronics, displays, touch screens, printed sensors, smart cards, nameplates, etc.
On the other hand, Light diffusion films for LED lighting, what is called as Optsaver, is a diffusion film that uses one or two layers of coating on a polyester base to distribute light. The task of the film is to produce even brightness on the complete surface and to redirect as much light as possible towards the target. The films are highly efficient with a transmittance up to 99% depending on the film type. These films are mainly used in the design of power efficient LED lighting systems, where good illumination angles paired with high light transmission are key. Optsaver can be used for edge-lighting as well as for direct illumination systems.
Kimoto being headquartered in Japan has multiple manufacturing locations and converting space to cater customers around the world.
