SEAL Brand Launches New Print Shield Anti-Graffiti
SEAL® brand, the leading producer of pressure-sensitive laminating films, is proud to introduce Print Shield®
Anti-Graffiti. This product safeguards prints, which may become vulnerable to graffiti by making them washable
and resistant to a very large number of detergents and solvents. Print Shield Anti-Graffiti consists of a high-
performance, PCTFE film, which protects images printed on UV or solvent ink-jet printers from a wide variety of
chemicals, such as paints, permanent marker and acrylics. It also allows easy removal of most other stains and
chemicals that may find their way onto the graphic.
Key benefits of Print Shield Anti-Graffiti include maintaining a long-lasting professional look while being easy to
clean with common, economical cleaners. The PCTFE high-performance film only measures 1 mil and is
completely stain, flame and chemical resistant, as well as plasticizer and stabilizer free. This unique film offers the
highest moisture barrier of any clear, flexible film on the market, which means true protection against graffiti, unlike
anything else that is available in today’s digital print and finishing market place.
“The Print Shield Anti-Graffiti is the perfect weapon to combat vandalism concerns. Our unique high-performance
film offers true graffiti protection and reduces harm to the environment,” says Neschen Americas Senior Product
Manager Dave Conrad. “We want to offer solutions that not only enhance the visual impact of an image, but
extend the life and performance of graphics as well, and Print Shield Anti-Graffiti does exactly that.
”Given its application variety, Print Shield Anti-Graffiti is expected to become a finishing standard for digitally-
printed output. Applications include, but are not limited to, rigid indoor and outdoor displays, outdoor signage,
wall murals and point-of-purchase/tradeshow displays. Designed to be used in conjunction with inks that have
long light fastness, it is an extremely durable film with an estimated outdoor life of more than seven years (with
non-immersed, vertical application.) Current size available is 54’ x 150’.
