Drytac unveils Polar Chrome Film

Polar Chrome reflective satin silver PET film “catches light for a stunning finish.”

Drytac (Bristol, UK), a leading international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the large-format printing and signage markets, has added Polar Chrome Film to its popular Polar range “to give even more options to print professionals, advertising agencies and retailers who want to make an impact with their displays.” Polar Chrome is a 75-micron (3-mil) reflective satin silver PET film that “catches light for a stunning finish.” Because of its compatibility with eco-solvent, solvent, latex and UV-printing technologies, and availability in rolls up to 60 inches wide, it’s ideal for a wide variety of applications such as billboards, exhibition graphics, POS displays and public-transport advertisements.

Its three-year indoor and two-year outdoor durability (along with its two-year warranty) makes it a popular choice for interior signage and high-impact outdoor signs. Polar Chrome is also ideal for the production of ultra-reflective labels. The new reflective film features Drytac’s advanced clear permanent acrylic adhesive that makes the installation and re-positioning of graphics easy, while removal is quick and clean with no sticky residue.

“We’re delighted to launch Polar Chrome, a new product perfect for truly engaging displays and signage,” said Shaun Holdom, Global Product Manager at Drytac. “This bold reflective film has already been used to create incredible effects by our network of trusted distribution partners – especially when teamed with clear UV ink to create textures with depth and special-effect finishes. We’re looking forward to seeing our customers’ incredible designs using Polar Chrome.” Drytac’s Polar product range also includes Polar Burst, a satin reflective PVC film for window graphics, and Polar Grip vinyl, designed for rough surfaces and permanent printed signs, even in extreme weather conditions.

Drytac Canada is located in Brampton, Ontario and is currently moving its operations into a larger state-of-the-art facility spanning over 70,000 square feet. The new address is 30 Driver Road.
