Ultra-Matte Reverse Printing

This is the same plastic engraving material as above except that the face is matte clear and a thin layer of color is on the back. We print through the back in reverse.

Phenolic

Phenolic (also known as Lamicoid) is an ideal durable material for engraved tags, labels, legent plates and nameplates. Material characteristics include:
· For use when non-conductive materials are required
· Excellent electrical insulator

· Abrasion, heat, and chemical resistant

· Stain resistant multi-layered acrylic for indoor applications

1/16" thick, 3-ply, scratch resistant, low glare satin finish phenolic meets requirements when
Mil Spec LP-387A Type N.D.P. LP 509 is required. Rigid thermoset material is electrically non-conductive.
Also known in the industry as Lamicoid. Naps can custom cut Phenolic to size that fits your needs and
engraves your text to complete the project!
