Spandex’s new SuperGlide for single-person vehicle wrap application

New adhesive technology SuperGlide makes single-person application of large-scale vehicle wrap installations simple by using the latest ImagePerfect digitally printable vehicle film.

Available from Spandex, the ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide is a high-performance, super soft polymeric vinyl featuring a state-of-the-art 50-micron film, designed to deliver high-quality images on wide-format digital printers using eco-solvent, solvent, UV-cured and latex inks. Ideally suited to compound curves and moderate recesses (2D, single-step) — usually the preserve of much more expensive cast products — it can be applied to a wide variety of substrates, including glass, polystyrene, PVC and plastics such as ABS.

The new SuperGlide permanent adhesive technology creates supremely low initial tack and minimal surface friction, so that a single person can easily apply and reposition graphics even on wrapping jobs that normally require two people. An optimised liner material does not generate static charges on the film’s surface when released, further aiding application and adhesion.

ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide also incorporates PerfectApply technology for bubble-free application and increased repositionability, while other features include 7-year durability, high dimensional stability and easy removal if necessary. Its high opacity prevents any substrate show-through.

 “This latest addition to the ImagePerfect range of vinyls ensures we continue to keep pace with the evolution of vehicle design. What we’re seeing — especially in the fleet vehicle market — is a trend towards less complex body shapes, with fewer of the angles that once made applying wraps a simpler job. ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide is the ideal solution for these applications, providing Spandex customers with an unbeatable combination of creativity and single-person productivity in competitive price/performance package,” says David Neidell, Spandex Vice President, Asia Pacific.

ImagePerfect 2578PA 2D Wrap SuperGlide is available for next day delivery.
