Antalis now offering full range of Drytac Polar printable self-adhesive films

Drytac, an international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the print, label and industrial markets, has announced that its exclusive UK & Ireland distributor Antalis is now stocking the entire range of Drytac Polar films

Available immediately from Antalis, Europe’s leading distributor of paper, packaging solutions and sign and display products for professionals, the comprehensive range of fully printable self-adhesive Polar films – complemented by matched overlaminate components – offers a solution for nearly every printed graphics requirement.

The Polar range of premium vinyls is available in both matte and gloss finishes with both permanent and removable adhesive versions.Printable by (eco)solvent, latex and UV inkjet technologies, Polar products are suitable for numerous medium and long-term indoor and outdoor graphics applications.

Shaun Holdom, Global Product Manager for Drytac, explains: “Using high quality PVC face films, the Polar range offers excellent ink adhesion and vibrant colours – delivering fantastic graphics with longevity in mind.”

Polar products also feature a high quality two-sided liner, offering superior moisture stability in all weather conditions. Shaun Holdom continues: “This two-sided PE liner has been designed to eliminate media cockling; this keeps production flowing and greatly reduces the possibility of printer damage caused by printheads striking the media.”

The outdoor durability of the cast and polymeric films is up to seven years when used in combination with the weather shield laminates. The Polor Perma monomeric films have a life of up to three years when matched with Drytac’s Interlam or Protac ranges of lamination films.

Shaun Holdom adds: “The Polar range of films provides a high quality, cost-effective option for all types of graphics applications – from signage and general advertising through to floor and vehicle graphics. With 15 different films in the Polar portfolio, of varying thickness and finishes, there is a solution for almost every graphics requirement.”

Mike Collins, Product Manager – Viscom at Antalis UK, adds: “The new Drytac Polar range expands our product offering and provides solutions for every application. Drytac Polar self-adhesives provide a quality matched system when paired with Drytac laminates, giving us peace of mind that our end users’ expectations are met.”
