Title (EN) HEAT SEALABLE COATING FOR MANUAL AND ELECTRONIC MARKING AND PROCESS FOR HEAT SEALING THE IMAGE
(FR) REVETEMENT THERMOSCELLABLE POUR LE MARQUAGE MANUEL ET ELECTRONIQUE ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE THERMOSCELLER L'IMAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a heat sealable element, which comprises a support, a heat sealing layer comprising a thermoplastic polymer which melts in the range of 50 - 250 °C, a wax which melts in the range of 50-250 °C, or combinations thereof, and an image layer which comprises at least one polymer which is capable of selectively receiving and retaining water base colorants. The present invention further relates to a process for heat sealing an image, which comprises imaging the above-mentioned heat sealable element and heating the imaged element in order to melt the imaging layer and heat sealing layer to form substantially a single layer and encapsulating the water base colorant in the single layer.
(FR)L'invention concerne un élément thermoscellable qui comprend un support, une couche de thermoscellage constituée d'un polymère thermoplastique qui fond à des températures comprises entre 50 et 250ºC, d'une cire qui fond à des températures comprises entre 50-250ºC ou de combinaisons de ces deux matières, enfin une couche d'image qui comprend au moins un polymère capable de recevoir et de retenir sélectivement des colorants diluables à l'eau. L'invention concerne également un procédé permettant de thermosceller une image, qui consiste à mettre en image ledit élément thermoscellable et à chauffer ledit élément mis en image afin de faire fondre la couche d'image de manière à former sensiblement une seule couche et à encapsuler le colorant diluable à l'eau dans cette seule couche.
