Dallying with the dome
The PolyDrop doming system supplied by Graphtec GB, facilitates the creation of brilliant three-dimensional special effects on signs.
Furthermore, when using the system in combination with a Graphtec plotter/cutter and a relatively low-cost heat press, sign and display companies also have a fast and cost-effective route to the potentially lucrative printwear and promotional products sector where there is a huge demand for special effects.
The PolyDrop doming system dispenses specially developed polyurethane resins and hardeners to a wide range of signmaking substrates. These include acrylic, polycarbonate, aluminium and aluminium composite materials and vinyl, in addition to fabrics and textiles used for soft signage applications. The Text Drop feature of the system uses a thermo-adhesive film onto which an image is printed, cut out and then domed with a choice of resin, including a special glitter-effect option, using an industry-standard heat press to speed up the doming process.
Polyurethane resins are extremely flexible in application and provide a high level of resistance to pollutants, abrasion and UV degradation. They are also completely safe to handle and are available in a range of different grades to suit specific applications.
The PolyDrop system is very easy to operate and requires no special training or user skills. It is supplied with a start-up kit that includes manual and automatic feed functions, polyurethane doming resins and hardeners and a special liquid dispenser.
