A 'global first' for the company sees the introduction of Premium Vinyl SA 270 glossy 3585, a permanent self-adhesive vinyl film with a glossy microporous coating.
The new vinyl film, incorporating the group's microporous coating technology, is one of the few self-adhesive, water resistant glossy coating products in the sector and has been developed with an aqueous, acrylate-based permanent adhesive.
"We continue to innovate in the large format media inkjet printing arena. Sihl Premium Vinyl SA270 glossy 3585 is completely compatible with dye-based inks and the latest generation of pigment inks. And with this new coating our customers have access to the first ever water-resistant SA vinyl product suitable for this printing sector," said Sam Iliaifar, area sales manager, Sihl Group UK. "Our new coating ensures an even gloss in both printed and unprinted areas and by avoiding optical brightening agents the film doesn't turn yellow as a result of oxidation. This means pictures retain their original appearance for longer."
Other key features include:
* High color saturation
* Fast drying time
* Indoor and short-term outdoor usage potential
* A range of applications including floor advertising (combined with appropriate laminated films) signs, banners, vehicle advertising, POS materials, decorations and a raft of short-term advertising media.
The new vinyl will, over time, replace the two older adhesive films available in the range; Standard Vinyl SA 240 Glossy 3828 with swellable coating (only suitable for dye inks) and the first generation Classic Vinyl WR SA 280 satin 3634.
