Nekoosa expands its Specialty Graphics portfolio with four new vinyls

Nekoosa products are popular choices for a variety of indoor and outdoor window graphics.

Specialty paper and substrate provider Nekoosa Coated Products (Nekoosa, Wisconsin) has added four new vinyls to its Nekoosa Coated Products’ branded portfolio – Sign-Ad, Hi-Stat, Wall Graphics and Classic Vinyl. These products are ideal for window, wall and general signage applications such as window graphics, POP signage, wall decals and counter mats.

  • Sign-Ad is a flexible 4-mil vinyl with a low-tack removable adhesive. It’s re-positionable and can be cleanly removed from interior or exterior windows without leaving adhesive residue behind.
  • Hi-Stat is an adhesive-free flexible 8-mil vinyl that adheres to most clean, highly polished surfaces such as stainless steel and glass. Hi-Stat is used for interior and exterior window graphics.
  • Wall Graphics flexible 6-mil vinyl has a microsphere ultra-removable and re-positionable adhesive that’s ideal for decals on interior or exterior painted walls, most types of wallpaper and wood paneling. Decals remove cleanly without leaving adhesive residue on the surface.
  • Classic Vinyl is a flexible 4-mil vinyl used in general interior and exterior signage applications such as decals, stickers and bumper stickers. Classic Vinyl features a high-strength permanent adhesive that can be applied to flat or simple curves.

Each of these new products is certified for HP Indigo digital presses and available in standard digital cut-sheet sizes. Sign-Ad, Hi-Stat, and Classic Vinyl are also available in top-coated folio sheet sizes for conventional and UV offset. These products are sold through Nekoosa franchised distributors and free sample sheets are now available for testing.

“Catalina Graphic Films has manufactured these products for over 30 years,” said Laura Slovensky, Nekoosa Channel Marketing Manager. “They’re used today across North America by restaurant chains, retailers and transportation service providers for window signage, wall graphics and decals. Nekoosa acquired Catalina Graphic Films in March of 2018. With that, we’re able to extend the offering to our wide network of paper merchants throughout North America. Printers can turn to their same local paper distributors from whom they currently buy Nekoosa products – such as SYNAPS, MagneCote and carbonless papers – for high quality specialty graphics products,” she added.
