Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

What is Claimed:
1. A decorative film laminate which comprises:
(a) a substantially transparent plastic film;
(b) a thin metallic layer adhesively attached to one side of the plastic film; and
(c) a layer of pressure sensitive adhesive attached to the thin metallic layer on the side of said metallic layer that is remote, from the side attached to the plastic film.
2. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein the transparent plastic film is selected from the group consisting of a homopolymer of vinyl chloride, a copolymer of vinyl chloride, a polyester resin, and a cellulosic resin.
3. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein the transparent plastic film is from about 0.05 mm. to about 0.5 mm. in thickness.
4. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein the substantially transparent film and the metallic layer are attached to one another by means of an adhesive.
5. A laminate as claimed in Claim 4 wherein the adhesive is a heat activatable adhesive.
6. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein the metallic layer has a thickness of from about 500 to about 12,500 Angstroms.
7. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein a release coat layer and tie coat layer lie between the metallic layer and the pressure sensitive adhesive.
8. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein the pressure sensitive adhesive is an acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive.
9. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein a rlease liner is also present and is joined to the surface of the pressure sensitive adhesive.
10. A laminate as claimed in Claim 1 wherein the plastic film is polyvinyl chloride , the pressure sensitive adhesive is an acrylic adhesive and a release liner is also present and is attached to the surface of the pressure sensitive adhesive.
11. A method of forming the laminate of Claim 1 which comprises:
(a) adhesively attaching a metallized transfer laminate to one side of the substantially transparent plastic film, said transfer laminate having the thin metallic layer attached to a carrier film;
(b) stripping the carrier film from the product resulting from Step (a); and
(c) attaching a layer of pressure sensitive adhesive to the side of the metallic layer which is remote from the side attached to the substantially transparent film.
12. A method as claimed in Claim 11 which further comprises applying a tie coat to the product resulting from Step (b) prior to application of the layer of pressure sensitive adhesive.
13. A method as claimed in Claim 11 wherein the pressure sensitive adhesive is attached to a release liner when attached to the metallic layer.
