Signmakers have already given a positive response to a new range of materials from William Smith, according to the company. VION is the latest product range to be added to William Smith's already extensive materials portfolio, which provides 'an even wider choice of high quality options'.
"In today's markets there is increasing pressure on signmakers for fast turnaround to meet tight deadlines, which means they need a digital print film that can be relied on to print well time after time," says William Smith's Marketing Manager, Chris Bradley.
"The new VION brand offers an additional option to the specific needs of the UK market, and we're excited to report that customers already trialling the products have given us extremely positive feedback."
Three ranges are currently available: VION Digital Series VP5000 and accompanying over laminate Series VL5000; and VION Window Film Series VC5500.
Series VP5000 is a gloss white five year polymeric calendered digital printing film with both clear and grey adhesive options. Its high quality clean white face film gives 'excellent printability', whilst the grey adhesive option gives hiding power. The heavy duty 170gsm double sided PE coated liner gives lay flat qualities on all printing platforms.
Series VL5000 is a transparent polymeric calendered over laminate with a clear permanent adhesive, designed for use with Series VP5000 to protect and extend the life of printed graphics. The over laminates are available in a choice of gloss or matt finish.
Series VC5500 is a five year clear etch polymeric calendered window film, with a permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive. Its clean face film gives 'exceptional results' for internal or external window graphics and internally illuminated displays. The 170gsm double-sided PE coated liner offers stability and lay-flat properties during cutting, weeding and storage. The solvent based transparent adhesive allows both wet and dry applications.
