Every surface covered
Using its now familiar slogan, printable media specialist Soyang Europe has a wealth of creative options when it comes to special effects.
Two key products that are said to have generated considerable interest are the new G-Floor material that Soyang claims will change traditional perceptions of what is possible in the field of customised flooring and AlumiGraphics, a 100 per cent recyclable pliable aluminium foil that can be applied to walkways, brick walls and paved surfaces. This material won the prestigious ‘Product of the Year’ award given by the SGIA.
G-Floor is a high-density, clear, flexible PVC flooring substrate that can be custom printed on the underside using either UV- or solvent-based inks on a grand-format printer. Its creative benefits over traditional flooring materials are said to be significant in terms of application times and cost. The material can be rolled out in a matter of minutes, while the ‘flat’ memory capability means it can be walked on almost immediately. Print technology enables a wide range of textures to be created, including natural wood grain and stone effects, as well as photographic images.
The image is printed beneath the media, enabling the thick wear layer to protect the integrity of the graphic and making G-Floor hygienic, easily installed and repositioned as well as offering an excellent load-bearing capacity.
Ideal for both interior and exterior applications, printable AlumiGraphics adheres to virtually any surface and requires no over-lamination. The product is available with two different surface finishes: ‘smooth’ for interior and exterior wall surfaces, such as brick, stucco, concrete or tiled walls and ‘grip’ that features a slip-resistant reflective surface that is ideal for external flooring applications involving concrete, asphalt or paving.
