Better foils, longer warranties

3D Laminates says it has built an ‘impressive reputation’ for its ‘next generation’ CoolSkin door skins and is now the sole UK agent for Hornschuch, which offers a range of window grade foils with ‘Cool Colors’ technology.

The relationship between 3D Laminates and Hornschuch goes back more than 10 years through the CoolSkin product, but now the company reports an increase in demand for the Hornschuch foils, particularly Altweiss TP60, Creme TP60 and Beige TP60 foils for window profiles, each available with several embossing designs.

While remaining a PVC based foil with an acrylic protective top coat, the new Hornschuch foils with Cool Colors technology can be laminated with ‘industry standard’ primers, adhesives and machinery, using the same parameters for wrapping.

The new generation Hornschuch foils benefit from a 20% thicker acrylic top coat at 60 microns, up from the conventional standard of 50 microns, which is said to improve colour fastness and scratch resistance. Long term weathering and colour fastness trials have resulted in a comprehensive 10-year guarantee across all Hornschuch foils, which are also designed to match the industry standard foils currently available. The foils are suitable for window profiles, soffit and fascia boards and other exterior PVC-U building materials.

Mark Lofthouse, managing director of 3D Laminates, commented:

“Now there is a real alternative range of foils in a market dominated by one player. The Cool Colors foils from Hornschuch have been exhaustively tested, are backed by a 10-year warranty and can be used using the standard industry materials and processes.”
