Drytac Introduces a New Flexible UV-curable Liquid Coating
Drytac®, a leader in liquid coating technology introduces a new UV curable clear coat for use on applications
requiring maximum flexibility.
InstaCure SuperFlex is a high gloss coating that is flexible enough to form around rivets and stretch into
compound and complex curves, it is also thermo-formable.
Tests show that InstaCure SuperFlex has the ability to stretch up to six times its original size, allowing
manufacturers of fleet and vehicle graphics to benefit from the low cost and high speed applications made
possible with high UV curable liquid coaters.
INSTACure SuperFlex contains a proprietary blend of acrylate and non yellowing urethane UV curable polymers
to give coated prints flexibility. The coating develops a tough exterior finish that is scratch and abrasion
resistant and able to withstand the rigors of commercial truck washes using standard commercial cleaners.
Says Jim Tatum, Drytac’s liquid finishing division manager, "with coating costs as low as 6 cents per square foot
and speeds of up to 60 linear feet per minute with our new roll to roll attachment, customers can now not only
compete, but for the first time in a long time, make significant profits in this industry with this product application."
