Air Release Polymeric From £159.00

Metamark

 

Product Description
Metamark MD-i-AB is a 70 micron polymeric calendered vinyl, with a grey pigmented adhesive to offer improved opacity, and prevent showthrough
on surfaces with a strong base colour, or for covering previous graphics.. The ‘MetaScape’ adhesive system, offering ease of
application by providing air with an exit route from under the graphic, makes for faster, trouble-free application. MD-i-AB offers 5 years
outdoor durability, and is ideal for medium term applications onto flat or simple curves including vehicle graphics. Suitable for printing with
Solvent, Eco Solvent, Latex and UV inks.

Printing and Handling
 Suitable for use on Solvent, Eco Solvent, Latex and U.V. inkjet printers. Always perform a test print first.
 Ensure that the correct profiles and heater settings are used.
 Ensure that the material has reached room temperature and a relative humidity of 50% before printing.
 Do not handle the face film directly and ensure it is free from dust and static.

Overlaminating
 Overlamination is recommended to prevent abrasion and to extend colour fastness.
 Allow the inks to cure before overlaminating, this is usually 24-48 hours.
 The matched laminate for MD-i-AB is MetaGuard MGi. For all other laminates the user should determine suitability.

Application-
 Allow the inks to cure before cutting flush to the print, this is usually 24-48 hours.
 Apply unstressed, in particular to curves and recesses. It is not suitable for application over rivets or complex recesses.
 Suitable for wet application. Always apply dry into recesses, or where the print is cut flush, to ensure best adhesion.
 Not recommended for use on low energy surfaces such as polypropylene. The user should determine suitability of substrate.
