Folex launches self-adhesive vinyl for signage and point of sale

Digital coating specialist Folex has introduced SIVN, a permanent self-adhesive vinyl with a glossy nanoporous coating surface.

The glossy surface offers a glass, shiny effect to images and due to the nano coating, absorbs the water based inks directly into the coating layer. Nano technology also provides a high level of water resistance to the printed image.

The special ink receptive coating is suitable for water based pigment and dye inks and its highly absorbent coating structure allows instant drying performance, which means the film can be printed roll to roll which is great for tight print deadlines, saving time and money.

Post lamination is therefore also not required when looking for a glossy finish. Images are vibrant and strong in contrast, perfect for stunning photo quality images for signage, labels, point of sale and point of purchase. 

Offered in a PVC face film thickness version of 0.130 mm with a permanent acrylic adhesive and paper release liner, SIVN is available in 430mm, 610mm, 914mm, 1067mm, 1270mm, 1370mm and 1520mm widths in 20m lengths.

Folex launched the new substrates for the first time at FESPA 2017 in Hamburg, where they showcased a range of new products, including flag and backlit fabrics that are certified for HP Latex inks. 

Including the new additions, the company’s portfolio now consists of 26 substrates, in weights ranging from 80gsm to 310gsm and widths from 1m to 3.2m. Costs range from €0.55 to €1.65/m2, depending on the product. 

Folex vice-president Mahmoud Elkotb commented: “All of our products are optimised for dye-sub inks, both direct and indirect, latex inks and UV curable inks. We know our market and we want to provide customers with good quality, good service and good solutions."
