Spandex has extended its ImagePerfect range with the addition of an easy-to-use self-adhesive vinyl which, thanks to advanced low tack adhesion levels, offers effortless repositionability and removability in a host of large format branding and promotional projects. The new white, semi-matt ImagePerfect 2534PA film has been engineered to enable fast, simple and clean application by non-professional end-users and is specifically designed for short-term large format digital inkjet printing applications using eco-solvent, solvent and UV-cured inks.
IP 2534PA is afforded more 'body' than standard products, which allows easier handling, as well as increased opacity and a smooth finish on flat substrates. This, together with its clear adhesive system, offers customers much more flexibility to quickly and easily install and reposition the film. This is further enhanced by Spandex's PerfectApply technology, which ensures easy, bubble-free application for more professional, attention-grabbing large format printed projects. The innovative adhesive system also enables customers to benefit from superior levels of clean removability at the graphics' end-of-life stage. Indeed, depending on the specific application and substrate, if IP 2534PA is removed within three years, then customers are assured an efficient and clean peel with no messy adhesive residue.
Thanks to its user-friendly characteristics, IP 2534PA is perfectly suited to a wide range of application possibilities, offering large format printers increased scope to undertake a wider range of projects and enhance revenues. As a result of its semi-matt surface, which eliminates reflection from both interior spot lighting and exterior sun light, these applications include indoor point-of-sale and retail branding projects; indoor/outdoor advertising; exhibition and event graphics; and even short-term removable or semi-permanent decoration on existing sensitive paper-based surfaces.
Within these applications, the innovative adhesive properties of IP 2534PA grants customers the means to apply product to a plethora of smooth, flat and glossy surfaces. This extensive list includes painted aluminium sheets, glass, mirrors, stainless steel, anodised aluminium, acrylics (including signboxes), ceramic tiles, white boards and paper-based surfaces as posters. The film can also be applied to existing vinyl prints or signage to allow for the inclusion of removable/changeable information, messages and decoration.
"Spandex is committed to supplying products that enable large format printers and sign businesses to increase their service offering to customers, while broadening the range of applications they can undertake," said Roland Keller, executive product director, Spandex. "As a cost-effective, easy-to-use film that allows for simple, clean and fast application by those with limited or, even no application experience, our new easy-peel IP 2534PA is sure to prove a winner for those seeking an inexpensive and trouble-free means of producing eye-catching printed graphic arts campaigns."
Spandex's new IP 2534PA film offers up to seven years durability and is compatible with the range of IP laminate options for added robustness and/or surface protection, including IP 2810-100; IP 2810-101; IP 2810-200; IP 2830-101, IP 2830-102 and IP 2830-200. As well as 137cm for digital conversion, it is also available at 38cm for Gerber Edge conversion where it offers additional options in line with other removable vinyls.
