Merry Christmas 2022...
and a happy New Year. We are on company holidays from December 24th, 2022 to January 1st, 2023.
When it shines and glitters...
When it shines and glitters it doesn't necessarily have to be Christmas. Just look at the new self-adhesive film SparkleColour ASLAN SC 123 and let your imagination sparkle too. The six exciting shades of gold, silver, black, white, red and green (available soon), are just waiting to be used for plotter cut graphics, or full-surface applications, on all smooth surfaces. And if that’s not enough, then there‘s more good news. For a minimum order quantity of just 500 linear meters, we can offer you 30 more glittering shades.
The structure of the glitter particles in this 350 µm self-adhesive polyester film brings a touch of glamour to shop displays, architecture features and trade fair designs. What’s more, the spectacular sparkly effect is double-sided and due to ASLAN’s highly transparent, water-based adhesive system, is ideal for attention-grabbing advertising and graphics on glass.
A special feature: We supply the product with a transparent film on the surface. This on the one hand serves as protection against loose glitter particles during processing, but on the other hand also acts as a transfer tape for plotted applications. The film is then plotted in reverse through the backing liner and the rest of the process is simply child's play. Seeing is believing, so check out how this works in our short YouTube tutorial.
The advantages of the six glittering films at a glance:
- PVC-free, therefore dimensionally stable with no shrinkage
- easy to apply, thanks to the stable 350 µm PET film
- Six colours and 30 more on request (MOQ of 500 linear metres)
- high-quality, structured feel
- very good plotting properties (film is plotted from the back, mirrored through the liner)
- The supplied surface protection film also serves as a transfer tape
- Removable without leaving any residue, e.g. on glass and metal
- High volume of glitter particles for added brilliance and durability
New sustainable metal effect films in silver & gold
A further ASLAN self-adhesive film is now available in our unique LoopPET Series: LoopPET Metal ASLAN CRA 31. It’s a metallic film in silver or in gold, made of 70% recycled polyester.
The glossy gold and silver metal effect is visible on both sides. This makes the films ideal for applications on glass, where the overall appearance is stunning. What’s more, they are not only suitable for plotter cutting, but can also be printed with latex and UV curable inks.
The advantages of the new LoopPET Metal ASLAN CRA 31 at a glance:
- PVC free metal effect film
- The double-sided metal colour effect is ideal for designs on glass, for example with mirrored graphics applied behind the glass to protect against vandalism and environmental influences
- Consists of polyester with 70% recycled content
- For high-quality prints with latex and UV curable inks

Two new ASLAN products with environmentally-friendly message
6 | 21 – ASLAN is expanding its range of environmentally-friendly and PVC free products for the sign making and digitally printing industry with two real highlights:
Digital printing film and protective laminate made from recycled polyester
LoopPET ASLAN DRL 19 is a white film for large format digital printing. It is made using 30% recycled polyester and heralds a series of products that are more than just PVC free, leaving a smaller carbon footprint. ASLAN's renowned Dryapply adhesive technology makes it easy to apply the film without bubbles and has excellent removability. The material can be printed using latex and UV curable inks.
The LoopLAM ASLAN SRL 19 laminate is the perfect match to protect the print. The content of recycled polyester of this highly clear film is 70%. Even though the product is designed as a protective laminate (liner/adhesive), it is possible to print it with UV curable and latex inks.
Both self-adhesive films are equipped with ASLAN's special and reliable water-based adhesives – thus the films contain not only recycled raw material, but are also free of solvents, PVC and VOCs.
Use of recycled raw materials for manufacturing
Worldwide the sign making and large format market is undergoing a strong rethinking process towards more environmentally friendly products. While a complete recycling is currently not an option, ASLAN has approached the matter differently. "We used raw materials which contain recycled components as a base for the new films." explains Dr. Petra Tschöpe, R&D manager of the manufacturer of high-quality self-adhesive speciality products.
The recycled polyester used is post-consumer recycled (PCR), for example old PET bottles which are sorted by colour and then shredded into small flakes according to material. These flakes are then mixed with new PET granules in varying proportions (70% for transparent, 30% for white) and then extruded to form new films. This creates an environmentally-friendly, forward-thinking composite of recycled raw materials for digital printing. White products are limited in the proportion of recycled contents in order to maintain the desired degree of whiteness.
The 50 µm (1.9 mil) thick ASLAN films can be applied to smooth, flat surfaces. The self-adhesive films are ideal for use in shop fitting, trade show booths, visual merchandising and wherever value is placed on products that are a real greener alternative. Both products can be used indoors and outdoors and are available in the dimensions 1.37 x 50 m (53” x 50 yds).
