Avery Dennison has introduced an updated floor graphics portfolio and a new value film series for use in short term applications.
The company describes its newly upgraded version of its DOL 6000 as a durable and slip-resistant overlaminate, suitable for short term applications on the floor of retail environments and indoor public spaces, with occasional exposure to water providing up to nine months durability. This upgraded DOL 6000 replaces the previous version of DOL 6000 and DOL 6100 overlaminates.
This upgraded floor graphics overlaminate comes in a width of 1.37m, 10 per cent wider compared with the previous generation. Avery Dennison says, this allows for better utilisation of wider printers with less material waste and fewer joins in the final application. It is compatible with existing films in the Avery Dennison’s digital and signage portfolio.
The new DOL 3900 Value Film series includes DOL 3960 Value Film Gloss and the DOL 3980 Value Film Matte. It targets customers seeking high gloss or high matte finish, cost-effective overlaminates for short life promotional graphics applications.
Avery Dennison says the new series delivers UV weather resistance and good dimensional stability during conversion and application and comes in widths of 1.37m and 1.52m. The company says the wider widths enable better utilisation of the printer width for commonly used printers, resulting in reduced material waste, increased productivity and improved aesthetic outcomes.
It adds that it has developed the new series to fill a gap in the portfolio for an overlaminate, tailored to short life promotional applications without needing to meet the more stringent requirements of medium term promotional applications.
