Spandex launches single person wrap film
Spandex is launching ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide printable wrap film, which it says enables single-person application of vehicle wraps.
The company says a new adhesive technology — SuperGlide — makes single-person application of large-scale vehicle wrap installations simple by using the latest ImagePerfect digitally printable vehicle film from Spandex.
According to Spandex, ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide is a high-performance, super soft polymeric vinyl with 50-micron film, designed to deliver high-quality images on wide-format digital printers using eco-solvent, solvent, UV-cured and latex inks.
Suited to compound curves and moderate recesses (2D, single-step) — usually the preserve of more expensive cast products — it can be applied to a wide variety of substrates, including glass, polystyrene, PVC, and plastics such as ABS.
According to the company, the new SuperGlide permanent adhesive technology creates low initial tack and minimal surface friction, so that a single person can easily apply and reposition graphics even on wrapping jobs that normally require two people. An optimised liner material does not generate static charges on the film’s surface when released, further aiding application and adhesion.
ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide also incorporates PerfectApply technology for bubble-free application and increased repositionability, while other features include seven-year durability, high dimensional stability and easy removal if necessary. Its high opacity prevents any substrate show-through.
David Neidell, vice president Asia Pacific at Spandex said, “This latest addition to the ImagePerfect range of vinyls ensures we continue to keep pace with the evolution of vehicle design. What we’re seeing — especially in the fleet vehicle market — is a trend towards less complex body shapes, with fewer of the angles that once made applying wraps a simpler job. ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide is the ideal solution for these applications, providing Spandex customers with an unbeatable combination of creativity and single-person productivity in competitive price/performance package.”
ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide is available for next-day delivery.
