A new PVC-free aluminium print media designed for durable outdoor floor graphics has been brought out by Drytac.
Drytac Polar Street FX is a 250µ (10 mil) textured printable white matte aluminium film, coated on one side with a clear, high tack adhesive. Its aluminium composition provides extra durability in high-traffic areas - for up to 12 months - without the need for lamination, and because it is PVC-free it can be recycled.
The one-part solution has achieved several slip ratings and certifications, including DIN 51130:2010 where it achieved a R12 and has passed the ANSI A137.1/A326.3 slip test. It is available in widths of up to 1,200mm (48") and is compatible with all common digital printing technologies including eco-solvent, solvent, latex and UV.
