Drytac’s Polar Grip and Interlam products have been used to deliver bright new signage for Sucreriedes Plaines, a Canadian maple syrup producer. The signs were designed and installed by the owners’ uncle, Andre Bergeron, who is the General Manager of TAS Films, a specialist graphics company.
Sucreriedes Plaines is a family-run business based in Saint-Charles-Sur-Richelieu, Quebec. The company produces maple syrup and a variety of maple syrup-based products using traditional processes. It was recently taken over by the sons of the founder of the business who wished to update the overall look of the company, with a big emphasis on signage. Andre was keen to help where he could and he designed, produced and installed a range of signage across the site using Drytac Polar Grip self-adhesive media, matched with Interlam PVC laminating film from Drytac for UV protection.
Andre reported: “The Drytac products enabled us to create the high impact signage we were looking for. And passers-by are now stopping at the business not just to buy maple syrup, but also to comment on how good the signs are!”
Drytac Polar Grip has an aggressive clear acrylic adhesive that enables users to stick the media to just about any material. The film’s unique high bond adhesive makes it ideal for applications where flexibility and a high bond adhesion are desired.
“The extra grip provided by the Drytac Polar Grip media was exactly what we wanted,” said Andre. “We needed to put signage onto a broad range of surfaces, including wood, metal, glass and corrugated plastic. The media adhered to each of those surfaces incredibly well and even in the extreme weather conditions for which this areas is renowned, the signs still look as bright and clear as the day they were installed!”
All the signs were printed and cut on a Mutoh machine and finished using a laminator. Andre concluded: “The signs very quickly helped to drive more business to the company as they can be seen from a kilometre away and people are stopping to check us out. You can’t ask for more than that from new signage!”
