Today’s vinyls feature high-end technology and excellent quality with eye-catching finishes and effects. New premium colours give designers more freedom to showcase their talent. See this latest technology at the Graphics, Print and Sign Expo, taking place from 14-16 September at the Gallagher Convention Centre, 9am-5pm.
Many vinyls also feature high conformability, enabling installers to wrap complex, curved body panels without first removing the protective film layer. They also feature lower friction, enabling installers to more easily slide squeegees and wrap gloves over the surface.
Current adhesives not only offer excellent conformability around curves and recesses — making application simple and fast — they ensure vinyls are easily removable, even after long-term use, without leaving residue or scratches. Ease of removability is important, especially for a commercial fleet that needs the branding changed at a moment’s notice, or individuals who want to frequently change the look of their cars. It is also important to maintain the resale value of vehicles.
Some vinyls feature a protective layer that helps to reduce surface impressions in a finished goods roll. It remains on during installation, then is removed easily and cleanly afterwards. Scratches impressed into the protective film layer will not transfer to the wrap film itself. Featuring unique, conformable film layers, it provides a better fit around curves and in channels for sleek appearance and easier installation.
Visitors can benefit from learning more about vehicle wrapping innovations, as well as see other new products and business opportunities in the world of graphics, signage, digital printing, branding, T-shirt printing, mug printing, vehicle graphics, laser engraving, binding equipment, digital packaging solutions and more at the Graphics, Print and Sign Expo.
The event is sponsored by Platinum sponsors Roland DG South Africa and Stixo Signage Supplies. The show will take place 9am to 5pm daily. Entrance is free. For more information and to register online, click here.
