Legal Statement

Contact your Jindal Films Customer Service Representative for potential food contact application compliance (e.g. FDA, EU, HPFB). This product is not intended for use in medical applications and should not be used in any such applications.

Processing Statement

  • AB-X is lap sealable to other acrylic-coated and sealable PVdC-coated films.
  • Acrylic coating and its properties can be affected by extreme humidity and water condensation. Thorough testing is recommended when considering acrylic-coated films in refrigerated or frozen applications.
  • Acrylic coating must be primed if used in extrusion lamination.
  • Acrylic is an excellent surface for water-based or solvent-based inks, adhesives, and code-dating (cold wet or hot stamp) without treatment.
  • To avoid blocking, ghosting, high residual solvents, or decreased sealability, converters should eliminate the use of slow solvents (cellosolve, glycol ethers, MIBK, butanol, etc) when printing on acrylic surfaces. The use of esters should be minimized.
