  • Patent number: 11493854
    Abstract: A printing sheet is formed of a base material film, a toner fixing layer formed on one principal surface of the base material film, a planarization layer formed on the other principal surface of the base material film, an adhesive layer formed on the surface of the planarization layer, and a peeling film stuck on the surface of the adhesive layer. The base material film has a laminated structure composed of a white foamed PET film layer on the toner fixing layer side and a transparent non-foamed PET film layer on the adhesive layer side, and the strength of the printing sheet is improved by the combined use of the non-foamed PET film. The planarization layer is formed of a colored ink layer, e.g. white ink layer, and increases the bonding area of the adhesive layer with the base material film side, thereby achieving smooth peeling from an adherend.

  • Patent number: 11427732
    Abstract: An easy-to-peel eco-friendly adhesive tape includes a film substrate, an adhesive layer, and a first print layer. The film substrate has a first surface and a second surface. The first surface has a surface energy greater than 36 dyne/cm. The adhesive layer is disposed on the first surface of the film substrate, and extends from one lengthwise edge towards the lengthwise edge of the film substrate, and does not reach the other side of the film substrate. Therefore, the first surface of the film substrate close to the other side has no adhesive layer. The first print layer is disposed on the first surface of the film substrate in a printing manner, and the first print layer is disposed on the first surface of the film substrate without the adhesive layer, and forms a peeling part. The adhesive tape can be thoroughly separated from the cardboard box.
