Autotex S (Steel) is a textured polyester film from MacDermid Autotype (www.macdermidautotype.com) that’s designed to replicate a stainless-steel finish for membrane-touch-switch overlays, automotive fascia panels, keypads, and other industrial applications. The film’s second surface is receptive to screen-printable graphics inks. MacDermid Autotype explains that text and images can be second-surface printed and retain full clarity through the hardcoat and says Autotex S produces an exact replication of stainless steel when printed with mirror inks. The film is also engineered to resist impact, scratches, chemicals and solvents, and fingerprints.
