Drytac, a manufacturer of adhesive-coated products, has announced the global availability of its seven-year durable Polar Premium Clear permanent polymeric PVC ink-jet media and seven-year durable weathershield polymeric PVC overlaminating films.
These solutions have been available in Europe for several years, and now Drytac is bringing these products to the wider global audience, including the North American market.
Drytac Polar Premium Clear is an 80 micron (3.2 mil) phthalate-free printable polymeric solvent self-adhesive PVC film with a clear adhesive for optimum performance on a variety of substrates.
The printable film, compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, UV, and latex technologies, is ideal for both long-term indoor and outdoor applications such as general signage, window graphics, exhibition and event graphics, and POS displays. It can also be used for applying vehicle graphics onto flat or slightly curved surfaces.
Developed with more durable plasticisers than less expensive monomeric PVC films, it offers significantly improved durability and weatherability.
Drytac Weathershield UV overlaminates are 80 micron (3.2 mil) clear polymeric gloss or matte PVC laminating films that can be used across a whole host of applications including general signage, window graphics, exhibition and event graphics, and POS displays.
Weathershield can be matched with any Drytac polymeric PVC film, including Polar Premium Clear, to increase the durability and weatherability of graphics.
Weathershield has minimal shrinkage and odour due to plasticiser migration resistance and is recommended for outdoor signage or high-end indoor graphic applications where the highest UV protection is needed.
