Thicker, more stable liner improves product printing and installation
Stow, Ohio – Mactac® Distributor Products announces a new, thicker liner for its wide-format printable IMAGin® StreetTRAX® non-skid outdoor floor graphic media.
StreetTRAX (STX1528v2) is designed to produce outdoor sidewalk and parking lot ‘floor’ graphics on unsealed pedestrian traffic surfaces such as concrete, cement, and asphalt. The change in product construction replaces the product’s previous 60# polycoated liner with a new 90# polycoated liner.
“The addition of the thicker, more stable liner improves this already great product and offers Mactac customers an even better printing and installation experience when using StreetTRAX,” says Amanda Smith, Product Manager, Mactac Distributor Products. “Upon adjusting printer run settings to meet the specifications of the new liner, printers will find StreetTRAX has better layflat and more stable backing. The new liner also ensures added stability and support for installers during graphic installation.”
In addition to the new 90# liner, StreetTRAX features a durable 13.5-mil outdoor stabilized white non-PVC film that is top-coated with a non-skid printable clear aggregate. It has an aggressive, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive that bonds extremely well to flat or slightly rough concrete and asphalt surfaces.
StreetTRAX meets and exceeds ANSI/NFSI B101.1 and B101.3 specifications for slip resistance/high traction by the National Floor Safety Institute – eliminating the need for an overlaminate and delivering exceptional high traction on either wet or dry floors.
It is an extremely versatile and cost-effective solution for promoting high-impact images and other creative messages and is ideal for high pedestrian traffic areas such as marathons, races, parades, fairs, college campuses, sports arenas, entertainment venues, convention centers, and more. StreetTRAX has an outdoor application life of 1 month to 1 year and is printable with solvent, eco-solvent, latex, and UV-cured inkjet printers.
