LMT films are BOPP (biaxially oriented polypropylene) films coated with adhesive activated by heat and pressure, usually on a paper base with or without print.
LMS films are BOPP films without adhesive – they are used by applying a layer of liquid adhesive (which will also be heated) on the film and by pressing it onto a paper base.
LMT films are basically LMS films coated with 12µm layer of special adhesive.
One side of the films is finished for print or varnishing.
