HEXIS UK Ltd. announces high gloss premium PVC vinyl for fleet graphic applications

Tuesday, February 02, 2016

Lichfield, UK - HEXIS UK Ltd., the exclusive UK distributor of HEXIS S.A.’s full range of films and media for professional signage, vehicle marking, visual communication and surface protection applications, has announced the immediate availability of a high gloss premium digital printing PVC, branded V200WG1. This premium opaque European-grade 100% polymeric vinyl is very conformable and ideal for fleet graphics. 

The 70µm V200WG1 film is suitable for standard solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV inkjet printing technologies and its industrial-grade solvent acrylic adhesive sticks to a wide variety of surfaces – including glass, steel, aluminium, PVC, acrylic, melamine and more. HEXIS V200WG1 is backed with a premium quality, moisture-stable digital printing liner, which stays flat during the entire printing and conversion process. The silicone layer allows easy release of the printed vinyl when the final application to the substrate is made.

Suitable for both cut and print – as well as print and cut applications – V200WG1 can be applied to both flat and slightly curved surfaces, and can be wet or dry applied. It is able to resist low and high temperatures, and high humidity conditions. 

Courtesy of its premium face film quality, V200WG1 is fast drying and can be handled almost as soon as it is out of the printer. The combination of face film and HEXIS adhesive ensures a low shrinkage rate, and compatible HEXIS V750 series laminate films – in both gloss and matt finishes – are available to enhance the durability of the output. 

HEXIS UK Ltd.’s Managing Director Scott Wilkins comments: “We’re delighted to add V200WG1 to our product line up. The film is coated in France to very exacting standards and has high opacity. This is a huge benefit when applying the product onto darker coloured vehicles – and differentiates it from competitive fleet graphic films.

“V200WG1 has been developed as a premium quality product; we’re also able to supply profiles for many of the leading printer/RIP software/ink combinations under the HEXIS Plus+ programme. The V200WG1 vinyl is also available in other adhesive options including: clear permanent, clear removable and black removable. The product series also includes a white matt and clear gloss face film, so it really does offer the perfect complete solution for fleet graphics.”

Unprinted V200WG1 film has long-term outdoor durability of up to 8 years under central European climate standards (vertical outdoor exposure). The product is guaranteed for 5 years outdoors under the same conditions when printed and laminated.
