Abstract
(EN)
A retroreflective graphic article comprising a retroreflective base sheet and at least one color layer disposed on the base sheet. The color layer comprises a color agent in a copolymeric binder. The binder comprises the copolymerization product of an olefinic monomer and a second monomer having a pendant carboxyl group. A thermal transfer article comprising a carrier and a color layer releasably adhered on the carrier. The color layer comprises a color agent in a copolymeric binder. The binder comprises the copolymerization product of an olefinic monomer and a second monomer having a pendant carboxyl group. Methods of making graphic articles employing an inventive thermal transfer article are also described.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un article graphique rétroréfléchissant comprenant une feuille de base rétroréfléchissante et au moins une couche de couleur disposée sur la feuille de base. La couche de couleur comprend un agent de couleur contenu dans un liant copolymère. Le liant se compose du produit de copolymérisation d'un monomère d'oléfine avec un second monomère présentant un groupe carboxyle pendant. L'invention concerne également un article à transfert thermique se composant d'un support et d'une couche de couleur adhérant de façon décollable au support. La couche de couleur comprend un agent de couleur contenu dans un liant copolymère. Le liant se compose du produit de copolymérisation d'un monomère d'oléfine avec un second monomère présentant un groupe carboxyle pendant. L'invention concerne enfin des procédés de fabrication d'articles graphiques employant l'article à transfert thermique de la présente invention.
