TOP PROTECT 3 in 1® - Paint protection signs

For all standards painting processes
The „3 in 1“ solution: an additional laminate layer protects the TOP PROTECT signs during painting and is then simply stripped off.
Whether wet painting, KTL coating, dip coating or powder coating, a perfectly legible sign with surface protection remains after each painting process.
The varnish coat seals the sign at the edges so that aggressive material can no longer seep in. Multilayer designs for use in multiple painting processes are possible.

Your advantages with TOP PROTECT 3 in 1:
  • The low-cost alternative to metal signs
  • Robust surface protection through transparent laminate
  • Additional painting protection „3 in 1“
  • For all standard painting processes
  • Detachable laminates for multiple painting possible
  • Simply handling
  • Print image remains permanently legible
  • Can be individually inscribed
Examples of application for the following industries :

  • Automotive Industry - Utility Vehicles Axles/ Cathodic Dip Coating
  • Automotive Industry - Utility Vehicles Axles/ Wet Caoting
  • Cranes, Conveyors - Construction Machinery
  • Drive Technology - Gears for the Food Processing Industry
  • Drive Technology - UL- and EX-Approval
  • Electrical, Electronics - Pneumatic and Control Technology
  • Industrial Coating, Surface Technology - Dip Coatings
  • Mechanical Engineering, Cases and Container Construction - Compressed Air Reservoirs
If the labels are to protected against abrasion, weathering, bases or cleaning solvents, lamination is essential.
The signs are given excellent surface protection in the form of a self-adhesive transparent plastic-foil, in either a matt of gloss finish.
Thanks to the combination of thermal transfer printer and laminating system, the ELTEX solution can print, laminate ad punch type and rating plats or barcode labels from narrow endless self-sticking material in one pass. Where this method is used, there is no longer any need for pre-printed signs to large extent, which consistently reduces the amount of storage space required.
All you need to stock are neutral rolls of base foil and laminate in the respective widths, whereby different sign formats can be produced from one roll width, e.g. 2 or 3 labels adjacent to one another.
The signs are punched using steel strip cutting tools that are easy to change over and which are very cheap.
The result are labels ready to peel off the backing paper, the grid is removed.
The software “PrintStar Color” has special characteristics for processing multi-colored graphics.
We will be happy to advise you in your choice of suitable foils or laminates.
We have an extensive range in stock and can deliver foils or laminates in the form of endless rolls in any width, even in small quantities.
We have thermal transfer ribbons available to match the individual foil types.
We can offer you a well arranged workstation with base cupboard with foil unwinding.
The user-friendly software “PrintStar” or “PrintStar Color” is available for singly or multi-color thermal transfer printers.
“PrintStar” proceses all standard Windows graphic formats.
Additionally our graphic converter “HPGLWin” is available.
With that HPGL-plotter-data are converted into suitable data for “PrintStar”
