New Avery Dennison overlaminate stretches 220 percent
Avery Dennison reports that the elongation properties offered by its new film has set new standards for premium overlaminates. The new highly conformable and ultra-transparent DOL 1400 Z Series can elongate up to 220 percent, representing a 20 percent improvement on typical industry standards and thus ensuring excellent installation performance and visually arresting printed designs.
Gloss DOL 1460Z, Matt DOL 1480Z and new Lustre DOL 1470Z PVC film all bring not only new levels of conformability and clarity to highly demanding graphics applications but also guarantee very long durability to the printed graphics – up to six years vertical and three years horizontal.
Oliver Guenther, Avery Dennison’s Senior Director, Marketing and Channel Strategy, observed that DOL 1400 Z materials are designed to meet customer’s expectations for the most challenging wrapping jobs: He said: “These new materials are the products of choice where high-quality finishing and long term durability are required. They will protect graphics on partial or full wraps, and have the clarity and straightforward installation needed for private vehicles, commercial fleets or any other high-profile interior or exterior 3D applications.”
He added that a boost to product performance makes MPI 1105 and new DOL 1400 Z Series films a great combination: “The MPI 1105 Wrapping Series delivers excellent printability and vibrant graphics across a wide range of digital inkjet printing platforms, including latex, UV curable, solvent and eco-solvent inks. It gives installers both the ‘stop-and-look’ graphics performance and the 3D capabilities needed to make strong design statements on personal vehicles and powerful brand statements on commercial fleets. MPI 1105 materials are also an excellent option for interior and exterior signage needing an optimal combination of print quality and durability. Using the new DOL 1400Z overlaminates not only increases the durability of the graphics, but also allows various finishes that enhance the design. The three-year horizontal warranty is also a valuable benefit, alongside the six-year vertical warranty.”
Easy Apply RS technology, with its inherent air-egress capability, means that installers will continue to benefit from the rapid and bubble-free application when using the new film, while a low initial tack allows sliding and repositioning into place for exact graphic alignment.
The film will be on display on the Avery Dennison and Mactac stand at FESPA Global Print Expo 2019, Stand E50, Hall B5, at Munich Messe, from 14th-17th May 2019.
