All are UL-recognized and easily adaptable into a printer/converter’s UL file, enabling them to support equipment OEMs that sell into regions of the world that require it. Most products also comply with both REACH and RoHS. The products utilize some of FLEXcon’s highest-performing adhesives along with topcoats that optimize printability with conventional, digital and hybrid printing platforms.
