MACtac Introduces Multi-Print Media Products



In response to the trend of screen printers expanding into inkjet printing, MACtac® is expanding its line of IMAGin® vinyl with new Multi- Print Media (MPM) products. MACtac’s JT5529BFD and JT5929BFD series of products transition easily from digital inkjet to screen printing platforms due to the layflat polycoated liner component in the product construction.

These products not only reduce costs by reducing the need to carry two different types of media to achieve the same high-print quality, they also improve installation by taking advantage of MACtac’s patent-pending IMAGin B-Free™ air egress adhesive system.

The MACtac MPM products provide exceptional durability (up to 10 years outdoors) and are highly conformable over complex curves, rivets and corrugation without lifting, peeling or shrinking. The B-Free adhesive system makes repositioning easy during the installation process and provides a secure bond within 24 hours of application.

Available in 2.1-mil (JT5529BFD) and 2.7-mil (JT5929BFD) thicknesses, MACtac’s MPM products boast a variety of other features and benefits, including:

• Bright white face for the truest color reproduction
• An 80# polycoated liner for layflat
• Smooth, glossy face for paint-like appearance
• IMAGin product warranty
• Excellent durability

MACtac also offers the industry-leading Permacolor® overlaminate films, including the newly introduced Permacolor RAYZor™ (LF3640) – which, at 1.5-mil, is the thinnest cast vinyl overlaminate available.

“The new Permacolor RAYZor cast laminate is extremely unique – especially when paired with B-Free vinyls,” Young said. “By reducing the thickness of the overlaminate from a 2-mil to 1.5-mil, the final graphic construction is easier to work with and provides flawless results.”
