Drytac improves its Emerytex Clear Overlaminate

drytacemerytex-inDrytac’s Interlam Pro Emerytex, a 125-micron (5 mil) PVC overlaminate with a pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive, is now available with a more durable sand-textured finish that “provides greater uniformity and an improved matte, anti-glare appearance.” The heavier coat weight and unique cross-linking adhesive on the textured finish is popular for use on aqueous, solvent and latex inkjet output – but has now been optimized for use on UV inks as well.

Interlam Pro Emerytex provides “superior clarity for enhanced colour definition” and has UV stabilizers that prevent discolouration and degradation of both the film and adhesive – extending the durability of outdoor graphics for more than three years. It has also been tested for anti-slip properties and is approved for use on floor graphics.

The film’s new textured finish is ideal for use on retractable banner stands, event signage, tradeshow graphics, point-of-purchase displays, counter mats, mouse pads and floor graphics. It can also be used to laminate simple, flat vehicle graphics – such as those on delivery trucks – due to its excellent scuff resistance. Interlam Pro Emerytex is available in 38, 51, 54, and 61-inch roll widths.
