Drytac to showcase latest innovations at Sign and Digital UK

Bristol, UK, March 27, 2019: Drytac®, a leading international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the large format print and signage markets, will be presenting a number of its latest media innovations at the forthcoming Sign and Digital UK exhibition.

Taking place at Birmingham’s NEC from April 2nd to 4th 2019, Sign and Digital UK is the premier trade event for the sign and graphics sector. This year, Drytac will be collaborating with several major print manufacturers and suppliers on their stands, enabling visitors to see Drytac products used with a variety of different machines, inks and finishing systems.

Drytac’s solutions for windows, walls, floors and outdoors will be the brand’s main focus at the show. This will include SpotOn, a range of films designed for applications including wall, window and retail graphics that feature Drytac’s unique dot-pattern removable adhesive, which allows graphics to be installed, moved and removed with minimal effort. Drytac’s SpotOn Floor 200 has been developed for stunning and safe floor graphics, an innovation that won the Media – Adhesive Back Vinyl category in the SGIA Awards in 2018.

Also on show will be products from the Drytac ReTac range, including textured films for impactful wall graphics and the newly launched ReTac WipeErase. This white dry-erase film turns any flat surface into a whiteboard or planning board as well as revitalising ink-marked whiteboards, earning it an SGIA award in the Laminates, Adhesives, Films, Coatings category in 2018.

Delegates at Sign and Digital UK will also be able to see Drytac ViziPrint and Drytac Polar products on a number of stands. Developed for incredible window graphics, ViziPrint is sure to grab attention, while Polar is a collection of products designed to withstand tough conditions – such as low temperatures – in a wide range of applications.

Hayden Kelley, CEO of Drytac, comments: “At Sign and Digital UK 2019 we’re delighted to work with so many other leading manufacturers and our network of distributors on their own stands. It will give visitors a great opportunity to see how Drytac products work with different printing technologies and applications. The Drytac team will also be on hand across the show floor to chat with show delegates.”

Drytac will be posting regular updates on its social media platforms prior to and during Sign and Digital UK to help visitors keep up with the wealth of products on display.

Drytac Wraps Up Winter With Polar Grip Launch

Drytac® is delighted to announce the global launch of Polar® Grip, a new display material with a unique high-bond adhesive.

As a leading international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the print, label and industrial markets, Drytac has developed Polar Grip for applications that require excellent flexibility and high-bond adhesion.

This new global addition to the Polar range is ideal for signs and displays on low surface energy substrates, decals on machine equipment, printed graphics on curved products – such as motorcycle helmets – and even for use on coarse surfaces including brick and concrete walls. It is available in both matte and gloss finishes, providing options for a wide range of applications.

Shaun Holdom, Global Product Manager at Drytac, comments: “Polar Grip is an exciting development, providing a durable option for tough environments both indoors and out.

“It works brilliantly on both smooth surfaces and on porous substrates including brick and concrete. Polar Grip has a thicker adhesive layer than most self-adhesive vinyls, that provides a tighter grip on porous materials.”

Drytac Polar Grip is a 3.2 mil (80μ) premium white polymeric PVC film with a pressure-sensitive grey acrylic adhesive that offers exterior and interior durability for up to five years, in surface temperatures from -45°C to 110°C (-49°F to 230°F).

Polar Grip vinyl is available in widths up to 60 inches (1,524mm) and is compatible with eco-solvent, latex and UV printing technologies. Its maximum life expectancy can be met using an overlaminate such as Drytac WipeErase® Clear or Interlam™ Pro. Polar Grip can also be used for floor graphics with the addition of a slip-certified overlaminate such as Drytac’s Interlam Emerytex®, globally or Protac™ Scuffguard™, in Europe.
