Overlay films are available in the industry’s widest range of thicknesses. Need options? Overlay films may be ordered in coated or uncoated rolls or sheets, and adhesive coatings are available. The films may be thermoprinted and laser engraved. We also offer special temperature resistant (low & high VICAT) films.
