Adhesive backed .0005 Aluminum Foil

Adhesive backed .0005 Aluminum Foil
Bare Metal Foil, Matte Aluminum (Set of 2)
http://www.micromark.com/Bare-Metal-...of-2,7800.html

Way thinner than .009 Index 110# cardstock.

Has anyone used this before?

Has anyone ran this through a printer?

If you have, did the ink dry ok or does it smear?

Any problems with it jamming the printer?

Still looking for some metal like cardstock or an alternative for an Atlas Rocket project that can be used in a printer.

Mike

This stuff is VERY THIN, tears easy, shows ANY imperfections under it, and without some kind of coating don't think ink would stick to it......Rich

Wow, thanks for the quick reply. Doesn't sound too promising!

The search continues.

Talking Quest Boldly into the Unknown!!

Perhaps give the material a spray of Dullcote and allow to dry thoroughly. Then run it thru the printer?
Just a thought!

I use this on "Plastic" & Diecast builds. Never though about trying it on Paper.
Yes it is VERY Thin. It Will show Every fault underneath.
It is made to show molded detail it is pressed on/into.

Been there - done that and got the disaster It's a no no for what you are trying to achieve, but if you scribe panel lines into the cardstock and apply the foil over that, it looks a treat - but like said before, it does show the tiniest fault which lays beneath.

Question Experimentation Part 2

Laminate to clean #110 cardstock. Spray with Dullcote. Dry and print.

Printers ( esp. inkjet) are cheap......
