Mactac launches new high-performance marking films

Typical MACmark Marking Film applications include vehicle and fleet marking.

Expanding its high-performance 9800 PRO series of MACmark Marking Films, Mactac Distributor Products (Stow, Ohio) has launched two new premium quality marking films. Featuring “advanced adhesive technology,” the new products – MACmark 9800 PRO B-Free and 9800 PRO High-Tack – are designed to make graphic application of high-performance permanent marking applications much easier. “Our new MACmark 9800 PRO products feature two different, highly advanced Mactac adhesive innovations, delivering Mactac customers even more potential with opportunities for added growth and new business,” said Amanda Smith, Associate Product Manager at Mactac Distributor Products. MACmark Marking Films are designed for plotting and computer-aided decoration and signage. Like all MACmark products, the new releases feature “superior cutting and weeding properties.”

MACmark 9800 PRO B-free was developed using Mactac’s patented, bubble-free air-egress adhesive technology which is characterized by its ease of installation. MACmark 9800 PRO High-Tack features an extremely ‘aggressive’ adhesive that’s geared specifically for ‘tough-to-stick-to’ applications. The adhesives are paired with a 2.6-mil, heavy metal-free calendared vinyl that facilitates durability, UV resistance and conformability over difficult surfaces – such as rivets and those with gloss and matte finishes. The films are REACH regulation compliant for reduced environmental impact. They’re also supported with 83# and 90# bleached white Kraft liners for added stability and lay-flat properties. MACmark 9800 PRO B-Free and 9800 PRO High-Tack are available in white and black constructions and offer outdoor durability from 8 to 10 years. Typical applications include vehicle and fleet marking, decorative panels, window graphics, shipping containers and more.
