HEXIS Launches HX190WG2 Digital Vinyl

HEXIS USA is launching a new type of digital printing vinyl for large format solvent, eco-solvent and Latex inkjet printers.

The HX190WG2 is a 2mil layered cast vinyl film and because of its particular formulation is more versatile and more “tolerant” with regard to the imperfections 
of the different print systems. The layered structure will ensure that ink will not affect the adhesive properties and thus maintains the excellent handling 
properties of the film.

As a consequence the compatibility with operable printers is wider, in particular with wide format printers such as hard solvent inkjet systems.

Being a cast vinyl film the product is suitable complex curved substrates (vehicles, rivets etc.) and adheres on steel, aluminum, PVC and melamine.

The HX190WG2 carries the proven micro-structured adhesive (HEX’Press adhesive technology) which make wrapping and repositioning the vinyl faster 
and easier due to the air egress channels in the adhesive coat.

Also available is a dedicated clear cast cold laminate, the PC190G2, which directly matches the properties and performances of the HX190WG2.

The biggest advantage for the installer is that the compound HX190WG2 plus PC190G2 handles and behaves like a HX20000 series cast vinyl.

FESPA Retrospective: HEXIS Goes Green

At this year's FESPA show in Munich, the French vinyl manufacturer Hexis launched an all-new cast Latex 
digital printing film and gloss laminate destined for vehicle wrapping applications. Both films are PVC-free and 
do not contain any solvents, plasticizers or heavy metals. The compound is flexible and conformable enough to 
be suitable for car wraps and in general applications that demand a conformable film.

At FESPA Hexis used a US-made TESLA all-electric sports convertible to demo the new films and emphasize 
their environment-friendly qualities.

The latex film – made of an aqueous emulsion of a plastic material – is free of all those materials with certain 
environmental issues such as PVC, solvents, plasticizers and heavy metals.

The HXL300WG2 has a thickness of 3.9mil and boasts a printed and laminated vertical outdoor exposure of 
3 years. It can be printed with all types of solvent and eco-solvent inks including Mutoh bio inks and HP latex ink.

The HXL300WG2 is for dry application and it carries the proven HEX’Press structured PE-liner to make the film 
repositionable during application and ease egress of any trapped air bubbles.

Wall Graphics Vinyl from Hexis

Hexis, the manufacturer of self-adhesive vinyl for signage and digital printing, announces the launch of a new 
printable cast vinyl film for wall graphics. The VCSR100WG1 is designed for direct application onto brick, 
concrete or plaster walls.

The compound is made of a highly conformable 2mil vinyl and it carries a high tack adhesive to ensure perfect 
adhesion on such irregular surfaces.

The VCSR100WG1 can be stuck directly on brick walls and will achieve the most stunning visual effects. 
Hence virtually any indoor or outdoor wall can become an attractive advertising space and thus a cost-effective 
alternative to banners or framed prints.

The film can be used without laminate, however in order to achieve longer durabilities Hexis recommends the 
lamination of the vinyl with one of their cast laminates PC30G2 (gloss finish) or PC30M2 (matt finish). Hexis also 
provides a set of dedicated brushes for surface preparation and efficient application.

The product comes in rolls 54 inches wide and 148ft long and is suitable for solvent and eco-solvent inkjet 
printers. Hexis supplies specific ICC color profiles for most printer and RIP software combinations to achieve 
best printing results.

Hexis manufactures a full line of graphic vinyl and digital printing media used for sign making and vehicle markings. 
The company headquarters and manufacturing site is in France with subsidiaries in Germany, Italy and the United 
States and with affiliate Hexis companies in the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK. The group exports some 
40% of its sales to over 40 countries worldwide, with a consolidated turnover of $ 56.5 million in 2008.

HEXIS launches new matt cast laminate

The PC30M2 is a 1.2 mil matt cast laminate designed for use on cast vinyls - both printed and full color - 
destined for applications on complex curved and corrugated surfaces. In response to the current demand on 
the vehicle wrap market for matt paint-like finishes this new laminate is going to enable wide-format digital 
printers and installers to follow the trend for matt details and accents and thus differentiate and widen finishing 
techniques.

The new glare-free laminate offers a smooth, uniform surface and thus opens new creative options beyond 
conventional fleet markings with a true matt finish for eye-catching graphics. New finishing possibilities and 
easy viewing (and photographing) from any angle - outdoors and under artificial lighting conditions. Installers 
will benefit from its excellent performance, superior conformability, convenient application and improved 
productivity. The thin 1.2 mil laminate will make installation of digital prints and full color vinyl both on flat and 
curved substrates easier and more efficient.

For ease of use and durability the PC30M2 features a sturdy PE-coated release liner combined with the proven 
clear acrylic solventbased adhesive with UV-filter ensuring efficient protection against color fade and 
environmental aggressions. The PC30M2 has an outdoor durability of 3 to 5 years depending on the substrate 
and is available in rolls 54in wide and 55 yds long.

The new laminate is an addition to Hexis’ successful range of cast vinyl media and is the ideal complement to 
the Hex’Press series of digital printing media with structured adhesives.
