Illusion Film

Illusion Film is now available at TAP Plastics. Illusion Film is a multi-lensed effect polycarbonate film. Illusion Film gets its effects of motion and dimension from thousands of minute parabolic lenses that molded into the surface on both sides of the film. These lenses create a pattern of absorption and reflection of light, which results in optical characteristics that are remarkable and unique. Shimmering silk, stardust sparkles, geometric repetition and three dimensional are some of the ways to describe this material.

These materials also lend themselves to many downstream processing methods. Printability is a crucial feature of Illusion Film. Silk screening, litho, and flexo are just a few of the printing methods that have successfully been utilized on Illusion Film materials. It can be effortlessly hot stamped for rich and varied effects. Illusion Film can also be easily die-cut and adhesively bonded to many different substrates.

Applications for Illusion Film are as varied as the imagination allows. They are used in packaging applications, point-of-purchase displays, vending machines, clothing, apparel and accessories, business cards, decals, home furnishings, CD packaging, and many other ingenious applications.
