Optically Clear – a step further with printable film technology 

Optically Clear is a fantastic new material that we at Reade are really enjoying working with. From print to application through to the longevity of the products performance, Optically Clear is at the front of our manifestation arsenal.   

“Optically Clear has enabled multi layered designs to be applied to glass in a single piece, whereas traditionally you would have several layers of vinyl.

Lower grade vinyls are prone to milkiness and can have a rippled finish once applied. Our optically clear vinyl is true to its name and completely transparent, plus being printable means even the tiniest details can be captured.”

UV and eco-solvent printable film for glass decoration 

Ideal for corporate branding, privacy, decoration, manifestation and safety, our architectural printable glazing film makes the design appear part of the glass, to stunning effect. 

Bring brighter colour, higher definition and incredible detail to displays. Explore clarity and translucency with subtle vignettes for privacy graphics and create dazzling visual effects as light passes through the printed image. Printing white and metallic ink with process colour can add further depth and solidity to the imagery. 

A high specification self-adhesive coating means the film is as temporary or as permanent as you need it to be. Easy to install in situ, it is also quick and clean to remove. 

  • Made from environmentally friendly PVC-free materials 
  • Hard coated UV printable option for improved scratch resistance and durability over time and cleaning 
  • High chemical resistance  
  • EN13501 B-s1, d0 fire rating
