MacDermid Autotype, Inc.
1675 Winnetka Circle
Rolling Meadows, IL, 60008

Press release date: January 16, 2014

Autoflex® EB has become the latest film range in the MacDermid Autotype portfolio to be awarded UL (Underwriters Laboratories) recognition in the USA, delivering added value from an already exceptional product.  The recognition applies to both the gloss and antiglare finishes and underlines the quality and consistency that customers have come to expect from MacDermid Autotype films.

Autoflex® EB is composed of a UV cured hard coat, chemically bonded to polyester film. The hard coated first surface is receptive to selectively printable texturing lacquers, whilst the second surface is suitable for decoration using a variety of graphic inks. The film can be embossed to give enhanced tactile response.

Autoflex® EB has been recognized to UL 746A Testing for Electrical Properties standard and gained the UL94 HB flammability rating.  This recognition will enable users of Autoflex® EB to gain UL Certification for their product or device with a reduced test program and enhances the opportunity for the product to be used in applications where additional flammability constraints are required.

"The UL is changing its position to ensure that more individual product components are recognized as meeting safety standards," says Neil Bolding, Marketing Quality and Technical Manager, MacDermid Autotype.  "This enables the customer to specify a recognized plastic such as Autoflex® EB that maintains consistency of characteristics over a long lifespan, and offers the peace of mind that comes from using an approved material in their process."

UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is a safety consulting and certification company headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois that participates in the analysis of new technologies and the drafting of safety standards for electrical devices and components.
