ASLAN's new film for difficult surfaces

A hand placed over sheets of self adhesive filmWith a new and 'especially strong' adhesive ASLAN offers the ideal solution for applications on various difficult surfaces.
The white glossy, polymeric digital printing film UltraTack ASLAN DFP 07 is a 'good all round product' and suitable for rough, uneven and low energy surfaces. A high initial adhesive tack allows the application at low temperatures.

With an outdoor durability of seven years it is ideal for long-term applications that require a permanent adhesive such as containers or trailers.
The digital printing films can be well printed with all major solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV-curable inks. A double-sided PE coated liner make sure of a good flatness in the printer and a high moisture stability.

ASLAN's other new product is a double-sided self-adhesive film with perfect flatness for sheets, ASLAN DK 1. This transparent film offers a wide range of applications, acording to the company. They are suitable for the self-adhesive finishing of maps, prints, plans, posters and more and allow a simple application.

The film has got an equally strong, permanent adhesive on both sides. The initial adhesive
strength is delayed, which facilitates the application.
One side has a reinforced 120 g cardboard liner that is marked with a centimetre division and therefore 'ideal' for sheets. The reinforced cardboard makes the handling of the thin double-sided self-adhesive film easier and guarantees a good flatness, they claim. The other side has a flexible PE release liner.

ADS introduces printable static cling film

person applying stafix static cling film to a wallAmari Digital Supplies, a division of Amari Plastics, has expanded its range of sign and graphics and digital printing materials with the introduction of a 'highly innovative and environmentally aware' printable static cling film from Stafix in Finland.

The film dispenses with the need for any form of adhesive. Instead a static charge stored in microscopic bubbles within the film makes sure it sticks firmly to a wide range of substrates. It also eliminates all of the familiar problems associated with adhesive-backed or glue-applied materials such as wrinkling, bubbling and stretching. Whilst making sure it is 'fast and easy' to apply and no messy residual adhesive when its removed.

Available in both white and clear formats, Stafix Litho, HP Indigo-compatible sheets and complementary UV inkjet rolls also have strong environmental credentials. The non-PVC films are made from 100 per cent recyclable polypropylene, have no conventional solvent-based adhesives and can be disposed of, as required, without problems associated with incineration and no toxic fume emissions.

Stafix is recommended for indoor and short-term outdoor sign and display applications such as in-store POS and promotional displays, street marketing and advertising campaigns, decals, posters and banners. It can be applied to and purposely removed from a wide range of substrates, including glass and acrylic commonly used in traditional sign and display applications. As well as more specialist surfaces like marble, wood, metal, brick and stone.

Depending on the prevailing environmental conditions, the films will adhere on average to any surface for up to three months and can be liberally removed and reused as required.

Stafix is available direct from Amari Digital Supplies or at local branches of Amari Plastics.

APA launches camouflage effect vinyl film

As a pioneer and supporter of wrapping, APA continues with the research and the defining of vinyl with varying different effects, paying close attention to the most followed trends as well as anticipating and creating new fashions.

It is with this in mind that the company has developed and produced the Camouflage Effect, an evergreen now in fashion.

APA Safari Vinyl

The new line of Camouflage at the moment consists of two variations, but the Milanese company is already working on other variations of the same effect but with different colours, to incorporate into the range.

The first version depicts the warm hues of sand and desert and is called Safari Camouflage, whereas the second one perfectly reflects a flourishing forest, hence the name Forest Camouflage.

An effect much awaited and desired by the lovers of nature and adventure that now can completely or partially wrap their own vehicle, in accordance with their taste.

The APAWrapFILM is specifically designed to completely cover flat and curved surfaces, has a perfect adhesive quality and is quicker to apply than doing the classic paint-job: an off-the-road motor, a SUV, a car, and other vehicles, thanks to the expert hands of skilled professional decorators trained by APA, can, in a short period of time be 'camouflaged'.

Re-launched Sign Making Tools bring WrapCut to the UK market

wrapcut adhesive tape held to demonstrate exceptionally fine filament wrapcut-cutting-tape-vinyl
After a year Paul Hughes would sooner forget, he was delighted to re-launch his company Sign Making Tools at this year's Sign & Digital show.

The company was originally launched at last year's show but Paul suffered the loss of one of the company's main suppliers and was then in a major accident that literally saw him off his feet for six months with two broken legs! Now fully recovered, Paul and the company are back bigger, better and with hundreds of new products. One of the new items, which proved an enormous hit at this year's Sign & Digital show, is a product that will truly alter the way anyone who is involved in vehicle graphics/wrapping works.

WrapCut™ is a narrow, flexible adhesive tape with an exceptionally strong fine filament attached to the adhesive side in close proximity to the tape edge. The filament becomes a cutting tool when pulled separately, outward through the film of material that's been applied on top of the edge cutting tape.

The method and application is fast and easy. Simply position the tape with the filament-bearing edge along the precise desired line for cutting, apply the vinyl film to the surface as usual and then pull the filament out and through the vinyl. With the fine cutting filament at the very edge of the tape, WrapCut now becomes an applicator's predetermined trim line, producing a perfect result every time.

No knife is required, meaning you no longer need to worry about damaging the vehicle's paint and other benefits include a reduction in the required skill level (fast learning curve), it creates new possibilities for application (overlapping vinyl surfaces) and is very inexpensive (low cost-per-foot/meter) plus a saving of time and energy.

Not only can WrapCut produce sharp straight lines it can also be used to cut out curved shapes around door handles, locks and recessed panels. It is extremely strong and can easily cut through laminated prints, reflective, and multi layers of vinyl.

WrapCut comes on a plastic reel that holds 122 metres of this innovative new product.

Paul said: "As a sign maker of 24 years I could instantly see the potential of this product and had to bring it to the UK market." For further information on other innovative sign making tools and video demonstrations of the WrapCut visit the website www.signmakingtools.co.uk

Anti-graffiti film launched by Neschen

Solvoclear Easy Protect launched by Neschen is what they claim to be its best anti-graffiti film yet. Solvoclear Easy Protect, it is a low-priced, general purpose anti-graffiti film which is able to retain its glossy appearance even after having been surface cleaned several times.

Solvoclear Easy Protect is ideally suited for indoor and outdoor use with traditional photo prints, inkjet and digital print media including paper, polyester and vinyl.

It is manufactured from OPP (oriented polypropylene), an environmentally-friendly material composed of only carbon and hydrogen, with a high gloss finish. It has a siliconised white backing paper and a clear solvent acrylic adhesive on one side and delivers high UV protection.

Sarah Janes, Managing Director of Neschen UK, says: "This new protective film is easy to handle and extremely well priced but what sets it head and shoulders above anything else manufactured so far is that it is highly resistant to a large number of detergents and solvents and, importantly, stays glossy after cleaning. It does not become matt as other films do."

Correctly applied, Neschen's Solvoclear Easy Protect has an expected life span of several years.
