Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2001032411
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
This invention relates to a lamination (10) or (10A) comprising: a substrate (12) having a first side (13) and a second side (21); a thermally responsive coating layer (14) overlying said first side (13) of said substrate (12), said thermally responsive coating layer (14) being capable of forming an image when heat is selectively applied to said thermally responsive coating layer (14); a light transmissive protective layer (18) overlying said thermally responsive coating layer (14), said light transmissive protective layer (18) having an image receiving surface (20 or 31) and being capable of transmitting heat applied thereto to said thermally responsive coating layer (14); and an adhesive layer (16) positioned between said light transmissive protective layer (18) and said thermally responsive coating layer (14). In one embodiment, the lamination (10A) further comprises another light transmissive protective layer (19) positioned between the thermally responsive coating layer (14) and the adhesive layer (16). In one embodiment, the lamination (10A) further comprises an ink or graphics layer (17) adhered to the image receiving surface (31) of the light transmissive protective layer (18). In one embodiment, the lamination (10A) further comprises a friction reducing coating layer (30) overlying the light transmissive protective layer (18). In one embodiment, the lamination (10A) further comprises a layer of a pressure sensitive adhesive (22) overlying the second side (21) of the substrate (12). In one embodiment, the lamination (10A) further comprises a release line (24) overlying the foregoing layer of pressure sensitive (22). The lamination (10 or 10A) has dual image receiving capability and provides protection against one or more of excessive moisture, chemicals, abrasions or ultraviolet light. A process for making the foregoing lamination is disclosed.
