Offering the most comprehensive bubble-free product line on the market, MACtac Graphic Products has expanded its IMAGin B-free portfolio with the introduction of new IMAGin B-free Gruv pressure-sensitive media. The new cost-effective product line enables printers and installers to produce high-impact graphics for a range of applications, from medium- to long-term full and partial vehicle wraps, to medium- to long-term indoor and outdoor flat to slightly curved signage applications.
Pairing bright white gloss vinyl films with an efficient bubble-free, air-egress adhesive pattern, IMAGin B-free Gruv products offer the same performance characteristics found in its other bubble-free solutions – IMAGin B-free PRO and IMAGin B-free Window Films—to provide customers with more options in vinyl and price points.
"Because of its exceptional features and competitive price, IMAGin B-free Gruv is a film you can rely on for jobs where easy installation is a must," said Mary Ann Kucera, marketing manager, MACtac Graphic Products. "Its ultra-smooth, gloss white surface delivers high-impact color graphics, and the opaque adhesive provides excellent hiding power."
The IMAGin B-free Gruv line features three products: intermediate GV529BFD, high-performance GV729BFD and ultra-conformable GV929BFD, suitable for most wide-format processes—solvent, eco-solvent, latex, and UV-cured ink jet printing. All products are supplied with a 98# polycoated liner.
IMAGin B-free Gruv GV529BFD is a 3.0-mil gloss white, soft calendered PVC film ideal for quick turnaround time on installation to a variety of substrates – from Sintra to aluminum. It offers ease of installation for short- to medium-term indoor and outdoor advertising and signage, such as point-of-purchase (POP), tradeshow and museum graphics, and offers an outdoor durability of up to five years.
IMAGin B-free Gruv GV729BFD is a 2.8-mil gloss white vinyl designed for use on flat or simply curved surfaces such as indoor and outdoor signage, displays and POP, as well as partial vehicle wraps. The unprinted film offers an outdoor durability of up to seven years.
IMAGin B-free Gruv GV929BFD is a 2.1-mil gloss white vinyl designed for long-term outdoor and permanent vehicle markings on flat, curved, complex and riveted surfaces, such as full and partial vehicle wraps, bus wraps, museum signage and more. It offers an outdoor durability of up to nine years for the unprinted film.
When paired with MACtac's PERMACOLOR ColorGard or RAYZor clear overlaminates, customers can further enhance the durability and performance of their final printed graphics.
