It's your choice and it all depends on your needs and requirements. The ORAFOL products offer the right quality, durability and versatility whatever the need.
For colours, you name it - we got it. In the range of cast vinyls we offer one of the largest colour ranges in the market, with over 100 different standard colours for several product lines, including both glossy and matt options. Should you require a special colour to be matched which is not in our standard range, our flexible manufacturing process enables us to supply this as well (Please contact ORAFOL for details regarding minimum quantities).
Whether for outdoor, indoor, permanent or temporary, the ORAFOL plotter materials enable both design creativity and the ability to meet customers' specific requirements in any industry. The materials are easy to weed and offer the best quality and value regardless of substrate, application method or duration requirements.

We have a product to suit both these extremes - and everything in between.

Digital Printing Materials
ORAFOL is your full range supplier of digital printing materials. Regardless of your application, you are sure to find a product from our range that will match your requirements.
Leading brands within our portfolio of digital printing materials include ORAJET® and ORACAL®, and the range is complimented by also the equivalent laminating and mounting films.
When using ORAFOL films, you can rely on the fact that ink adhesion, bonding properties, image quality and performance of your end product will be as desired. The ORAFOL quality is one you can trust. Production of our digital printing materials follows our strict quality system, and the materials are manufactured on the latest most advanced manufacturing equipment in the market place.
The ORAFOL range consists of a vast number of different product solutions, whether you need material for inkjet printing with solvent or water based inks, latex inks, UV printing or thermo transfer printing. For all printing methods and for application onto practically all types of surfaces, we offer a variety of films for both indoor and outdoor signage, whether permanent, semi-permanent or temporary applications. Select from a variety of material types and properties including glossy, matt, reflective films and more. Special materials are available also with high tack adhesive for extreme conditions, as well as special adhesives for application in low temperatures.
In addition, selected ORAFOL materials specifically developed for large-sized application are offered also with our RapidAir® technology. This includes e.g. the popular ORAJET® films 3951RA, 3551RA and 3165RA, as well as our new product introductions ORAJET® 3162XRA and ORAJET® 3164XRA. The RapidAir® materials enables easy and quick application without air inclusion. Any air bubbles can easily be removed with a squeegee, simply by rubbing out the bubbles towards the edge of the material.
Our ORACAL® range of graphic printing films is a preferred choice worldwide by signs and graphics producers. And for all good reasons. ORAFOL offers printing films in a wide range of types.
This means that regardless of the method you employ for printing graphics, you will find a material in our range to suit your needs.
Glossy, matt and transparent options are available not only for short, medium and long term applications, but also with a range of different adhesives, ensuring optimal bonding properties to the selected substrate. Where the material is intended for short term use only, easy removal without any residue is one of the key features offered. For applications where the material is intended for long term use, we offer the combination between high performance PVC and excellent permanent adhesives for long lasting applications.
For special environmental concern, the ORACAL® ECO Print line offers a great alternative to PVC films for use in screen and offset printing. However, the ORAFOL range also includes several other phthalate free product options (tested against the European directive 2005/84/EC, which are ideal for use in e.g. the toy industry).
The ORAFOL printing materials range also includes reflective, fluorescent as well as other special properties films.
Laminating & Mounting Films
To protect your prints, ORAFOL offers a full range of laminating materials, specifically developed as a perfect match to the ORAFOL base films. Lamination is the bonding of a thin transparent film to any visual material.
By doing so, you protect your print from wear and tear, as well as effectively slow down the natural aging of your print as the laminating films offer UV inhibitors.
The ORAGUARD® lamination films are offered in a range of surfaces. A matt surface can be the ideal choice where small text conditions are important, as the surface is not reflecting any light and therefore makes text easy to read. Applications could include posters and trade show images where spotlights will be focused directly onto the image and reflection should be avoided. A gloss surface is ideal for e.g. photographic images, as it vividly brings out the colours in any photo or design. Whatever your needs are. ORAFOL will have the right lamination film for it.
The ORAGUARD® range also includes special Stone Guard films, to help protect your vehicles’ paint finish from the harsh conditions of daily use. By having a transparent protective film applied to the sensitive areas, you can protect the paint from stones, sand and road debris. The ideal solution for cars, trucks, caravans, boats, and the like.
For floor graphics our unique over-laminating films come with a specially developed anti-slip surface. This ensures not only a full protection of your floor designs, direction signs on indoor walk ways or even heavy transport ways, but helps also to reduce the risk of slipping.
For mounting solutions of your prints, we also offer a vast range of options from our ORABOND® and ORAMOUNT® ranges. These materials have been specifically designed for the Graphics & Signage industries where we have developed a full range of recommended double sided adhesive tapes to ensure perfect bonding of your signs, name plates, posters or wall decorations. Contact our expert team to find the best solution for your application.
No matter how great the graphics look when cut or printed, application is the final critical step in creating the highest quality and best performing finished images.
When you've chosen the best materials for your graphic projects, you want to be sure that the application process goes smoothly.
We have designed our own line of ORATAPE® application tapes to work seamlessly with the ORAFOL graphic products for ease of application. Regardless of material processing, application method, application conditions, substrate properties, or duration of use, our complete line of application tapes provide the perfect solution for final application of your finished graphic project, e.g. decoration, letters, symbols.
ORAFOL provides application tapes with different levels of adhesion and offer options with high tack, medium tack and low tack allowing users to choose the most suitable product. We have developed and produced this range of application tapes which are designed to work in perfect harmony with our ORACAL® plotter films. This component matching of ORACAL® and ORATAPE® demonstrates the difference in product co-ordination and for our customers, avoids the difficult decisions which arise when using non-matched films and tapes from different manufacturers.
Our team of experts can help you identify the best application tape based on your chosen ORACAL® materials and match your needs for tensile strength, dimensional stability, re-use, wet or dry application and more.
