Hexis launches new matt cast laminate
Vehicle wraps can now achieve a perfectly glare-free effect with a new matt laminate.
The PC30M2 is a 30µm matt cast laminate designed for use on cast vinyls – both printed and full colour - destined for applications on complex curved and corrugated surfaces. In response to the current demand on the vehicle wrap market for matt paint-like finishes this new laminate is going to enable wide-format digital printers and installers to follow the trend for matt details and accents and thus differentiate and widen finishing techniques.
The new glare-free laminate offers a smooth, uniform surface and thus opens new creative options beyond conventional fleet markings with a true matt finish for eye-catching graphics. New finishing possibilities and easy viewing (and photographing) from any angle – outdoors and under artificial lighting conditions. Installers will benefit from its excellent performance, superior conformability, convenient application and improved productivity. The thin 30µm laminate will make installation of digital prints and full colour vinyl both on flat and curved substrates easier and more efficient.
For ease of use and durability the PC30M2 features a sturdy 145g/m2 release liner combined with the proven clear acrylic solventbased adhesive with UV-filter ensuring efficient protection against colour fade and environmental aggressions. The PC30M2 has an outdoor durability of 3 to 5 years depending on the substrate and is available in rolls 1370mm (54in) wide and 10m, 50m or 200m long.
The new laminate is an addition to Hexis’ successful range of cast vinyl media and is the ideal complement to the Hex’Press series of digital printing media with structured adhesives.
