Altyno Product Description
Altyno is an architectural decorative film with pressure sensitive adhesive and release paper, manufactured in Japan by AICA Kogyo Co., Ltd. (AICA), and imported to the United States and distributed in the United States by Koike Imatecs USA, Inc. (KIUSA). Altyno adds beautiful decorative surfaces to both new and existing surfaces that are smooth, solid, and non-porous. Examples of such surfaces are high-pressure laminates and metals. Altyno can be installed on substrate surfaces on-site by AICA-KIUSA Certified Installers manually, or in-factory by laminating machines operated by trained workers. AICA-KIUSA Certified Installers are installers who have successfully completed the installation training course approved by AICA and/or KIUSA.
Major advantages of using Altyno are convenience of short installation time, and cost saving in avoiding need for demolition or replacement and reducing lost revenue through minimized downtime.
A related product, Melatack Plus, provides higher durability and scratch resistance in the same patterns and colors as Altyno. The Altyno-Melatack Plus combination has solved issues that have limited the use of architectural decorative films on horizontal surfaces.
