Hexis Launches New Cast Vinyl Films at FESPA Digital in Amsterdam
Hexis will be present at FESPA Digital Printing 2008, this year’s major exhibition for large format digital imaging,
taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, May 12-14. At the event Hexis will show an all-new cast film
combined with Hex’Press adhesive technology specially designed for full vehicle wraps.
The new HX20000 combines a double-layered 3mil cast vinyl film with a solvent-based adhesive and a structured
PE liner with Hex’Press technology that allows convenient air egress during application. Because of its extreme
flexibility and high conformability fast and risk free transfers are practically guaranteed. It is particularly
recommended for long-term outdoor applications and for vehicle full wraps. It features an outdoor durability of
up to 10 years and is thus the ideal high-end solution for corrugated or riveted surfaces and all substrates with
long life cycles.
The colors of the HX20000 are based on those of the successful SUPTAC S5000 series. Thus color matching
the two series on the same project is very easy.
The HX20000 is available in 33 high-gloss colours. The roll size is 98.5ft long and 54in wide.
Also on show will be the enhanced HX100WG2, a 2mil cast vinyl film with a grey structured adhesive
compound that makes the product repositionable during application allowing easy elimination of creases
and air bubbles. The HX100WG1 is for solvent and eco-solvent inkjet printers and features an embossed
PE liner and an extremely conformable vinyl formulation that make it the first choice for printed vehicle wraps.
The HX100WG1 comes in rolls 148ft long and 54in wide.
Swatch books and data sheets are available directly from Hexis or from local distributors.
At FESPA Hexis is on stand G140. Vehicle wraps using HX20000 and HX100WG1 digital printing media will
be on demo daily throughout the show.
