The Ultracast product line is the pinnacle of technology. Capturing 100% of the intended texture without relying on mechanical embossing of soft thermoplastic films, Ultracast locks the texture into a robust and durable acrylic matrix; impervious to heat or usage, the texture remains unfazed. No gloss shifts to worry about, no fidelity loss with use, 100% of the intended texture 100% of the time.
Ultracast Viva is the new standard for high fidelity PVC, PU, semi-PU, and solvent-free casting systems. The innovative technology and chemistry of Ultracast Viva supports more sustainable casting and is perfect for your solvent-free systems, including aqueous PU chemistries.
Ultracast Viva provides improved flexibility and reduced curl and exhibits easier release for more efficient casting and improved operator satisfaction. Viva supports sustainable production practices and is compatible with green chemistry systems.
Advanced casting technology for solvent and aqueous-based, crosslinked PU chemistries commonly used in athletic footwear and luxury article markets. Ultracast Adva is suitable for all melamine, aziridine, carbodiimide and isocyanate type crosslinkers and is available in every texture offered in Ultracast Universal grade line.
High-pressure laminate (HPL) presses require an exceptionally resistant paper to maintain texture integrity. Ultracast PR & PPR retain the desired texture under loads exceeding 1200 psi (82.74 bar) up to 425o F (218o C) . The Ultracast PPR utilizes a pre-compacted paper to mitigate any fiber show-through, this is important for our flat and high gloss decorative laminate textures. Ultracast PRX offers increased flexibility, lower curl, and lower gloss levels in a select offering of textures.
Developed to meet the demands of a continuous pressure laminate (CPL) machines with a greater degree of mechanical flexibility and moisture stability. Ultracast PRC / PPRC is post dried to 1.5% moisture to eliminate vapor marking on press. The Ultracast PRC family shares all the textures found in Ultracast PR. The same pre-compression of the release paper is available for the flat and high gloss textures in the post-dried under the Ultracast PPRC grade line.
UTL - High Performance for HPL Applications
Designed to meet the demands of high pressure laminate (HPL) machines. UTL offers consistent and easy release properties for single-use applications with a variety of matte surfaces. UTL is flexible and easy to handle in sheeted form. Gloss offerings range from Supermatte to silk.
