Subject: Photocopy adhered to plastic film

Photocopy adhered to plastic film

From: Chantal Schwendener <chantal.schwendener>

A fusion between the toner lines of a photocopy and the plastic
pocket (obviously not polyester) it is enclosed in, seems to be
caused by the migration of the plasticiser contained in the plastic
film. This adhesion doesn't allow us to remove the photocopies from
the pockets without damaging the toner lines. Has anybody been
confronted to this type of problem and developed expertise to deal
with it (e.g. heat, cold, solvent)?
