A leading industry innovator, Mactac Distributor Products is paving the way for an entirely new graphic application space with the launch of its new REBEL X-treme permanent application print media.
Offering customers the first solution of its kind, the new 4.0-mil REBEL X-treme (RB528X) media features a specially blended, clear pressure-sensitive adhesive designed to permanently bond to tough-to-adhere to applications, such as low-surface energy plastics, smooth to slightly rough indoor and outdoor concrete surfaces or cinder block walls, and in critical permanent applications that may require tamper resistance.
It touts ultimate high-tack adhesion with 7-pound quick tacks and reaches up to 10-pounds peel in bond strength on typical surfaces. The extreme adhesive is protected with Mactac’s 90# polycoated two-sided SuperFlat release liner and the media’s facestock features a 99 percent opaque, blue-white PVC film – delivering incredibly high levels of color and brightness when printed.
“Our trusted REBEL products have been leading the industry in multi-purpose graphic media solutions for almost a decade due to the exceptional printability, versatility and performance they offer,” said Jeff Stadelman, marketing manager, Mactac Distributor Products. “Each of our REBEL product innovations has been customer-driven and REBEL X-treme is no different. REBEL X-treme is uniquely engineered as a no-fail solution for challenging wide-format digital and screen print applications where a permanent adhesive bond is necessary – creating a completely new industry application space.”
Examples of product uses within this new application space, include:
• Concrete support pillars or cinder block walls
• Low-surface energy plastics like polypropylene, polyethylene and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
• Pebbled surfaces such as trash cans and storage bins
• Powder-coated paint
• Stainless steel
Following suit with Mactac’s other REBEL products, REBEL X-treme has superior print capabilities for many printing platforms, including latex, UV inkjet, solvent, eco-solvent, solvent and UV screen printing, UV flexographic and UV off-set, as well as thermal transfer.
REBEL X-treme features an outdoor durability of five to seven years with a two-year shelf life. Additionally, all REBEL products, including X-treme, are backed by Mactac’s trusted Open Image Warranty™, which includes any combination of approved printer, ink and laminate or clear coat used with Mactac graphic media.
