Drytac Europe, an international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the print, label and industrial markets, has announced its plans for Sign & Digital UK 2016 at the NEC Birmingham. The company and its representatives will be on its exclusive UK distributor Antalis’s stand (L20) throughout the three-day event (April 19-21) and will be showcasing its very latest introductions to the market.
At the event, Drytac will be introducing its expanded range of Polar printable self-adhesive vinyls (SAVs) to the UK market for the first time. The range of fully printable films now includes: Polar Monomeric printable matched component systems (MCS) films; Polar Polymeric films; Polar Cast PVC films; Polar HiGrab (super aggressive, high-tack adhesive) films; and Polar SurfaceTac (low-tack adhesive) films.
Available exclusively from Antalis in the UK, the Polar SAV range is suitable for numerous medium-term indoor and outdoor graphics applications and is printable by eco-solvent, latex and UV inkjet technologies.
The films are matched with Drytac’s range of clear over-laminates and have an outdoor durability of up to seven years, depending on the product.
As part of its Polar films showcase, the company will be highlighting a new floor graphics/carpet application for its printable Polar HiGrab vinyl. Once printed, Polar HiGrab can be combined with Protac ScuffGuard laminate – a 150µ textured PVC protective over-laminate film with a matte finish offering superior anti-slip qualities and scuff resistance.
Following on from its introduction to the European market at FESPA Digital early in March, Drytac will also be showcasing its ViziPrint Illuminate film for brilliant backlit window graphics and vibrant backlit displays for high-end retail advertising at Sign & Digital UK. ViziPrint Illuminate is a 100µ translucent matte PET film that is suitable for both indoor and short-term outdoor applications.
Other solutions that Drytac will be focusing on include: DecorTac printable wallpaper for customised interior design applications; ReTac peelable films in a variety of thicknesses and finishes (including ReTac ChalkMate and ReTac Textures); and SpotOn spot-adhesive films for easy, bubble-free application.
Hayden Kelley, CEO of Drytac, commented: “We have transformed Drytac in recent years by streamlining our product offering to focus on self-adhesive solutions for current and potential customers. As well as focusing on these self-adhesive solutions, we’ve expanded into new areas such as printable films with matched components.
“With many of our products being manufactured at our Bristol site, Drytac is a real success story for the UK and we’re looking forward to showcasing our latest innovations to our home market.”
Drytac’s entire range of films and adhesives is exclusively distributed throughout the UK by Antalis.
