Drytac to showcase innovation in self-adhesive materials at ISA Sign Expo
Richmond VA, USA; March 7, 2018: Drytac, an international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the print, label and industrial markets, has announced its plans for the upcoming ISA Sign Expo 2018, scheduled to take place March 22-24, 2018 at the Orange County Convention Center, South Hall in Orlando, Florida. Drytac will be found at booth #2849.
Drytac will be showcasing a number of new products including three new OptiTac mounting adhesives and Polar® Burst print media at the ISA Sign Expo event which brings together sign, graphics, print and visual communications professionals. Twenty thousand attendees are expected to explore the nearly 600 exhibitor booths this year and meet with colleagues, distributors, customers and potential clients throughout the 3-day event.
Polar Burst is a brand new 3.7mil (95µ) printable, satin-finish, self-adhesive, reflective vinyl with a high quality, removable grey acrylic adhesive that allows for adhesion to smooth, flat surfaces. Compatible with latex and UV printing technologies, Polar Burst's outstanding reflective qualities create stunning graphics which retain their vibrancy, no matter what time of day or night, as well as in wet-weather conditions. Approved for both indoor and up to three-years' outdoor use, it is ideal for signage and general advertising applications, as well as POP displays, posters and other exhibition graphics.
OptiTac is a 1.5mil (38µ) high quality, optically clear PET film for face mounting of images to clear substrates such as PetGT, PlexiglasT, acrylic, polycarbonate and glass. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use - and offering excellent UV stability - OptiTac is ideal for lenticular imaging applications, backlit display transparencies, touchscreen displays and high quality photographic and inkjet printed images.
OptiTac Removable has the same benefits as OptiTac but with a removable adhesive on one side, allowing for the reuse of expensive materials such as Plexiglas.
OptiTac CF is a 1.75mil (45µ) high quality, unsupported pressure-sensitive, permanent solvent acrylic adhesive, protected by a clear PET release liner on both sides. This carrier-free mounting adhesive is made using the finest optical clarity components and is ideal for reducing silvering when using media and substrates that may not be completely smooth. OptiTac CF is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
As well as these new introductions, Drytac will also be highlighting a wide range of its self-adhesive materials at the event. In particular, the company will be showcasing its innovative SpotOn®, ViziPrint®, ReTac®, WipeEraseT and Polar® ranges*. A number of BannerBug® banner stands will also be showcased at Drytac's booth.
Additionally, Drytac will be hosting live demonstrations throughout the three-day event and showcasing an interactive back wall. Every day of the Expo, visitors who come by the booth will be entered into a competition offering them the chance of winning a free roll of material if they take a photo of the wall and post it onto social media mentioning #Drytac.

Supplementary Drytac Product Information:
SpotOn is a printable PVC film with a unique dot-patterned removable adhesive. The film's dot pattern adhesive allows for easy, bubble-free application of vibrant, high quality graphics to a wide range of substrates without the need for tools or wet installation. Available in clear matte frosted and white matte finishes, SpotOn is commonly used for window graphics but can also be used for short-term indoor applications such as wall graphics, trade show graphics or retail graphics that require seasonal change out.
ViziPrint Illuminate is a high quality, translucent PET film with proprietary adhesion technology for trouble-free installation of graphics on glass and other smooth, flat surfaces. ViziPrint Illuminate is also reverse printable, allowing for indoor and outdoor visibility of window graphics. It is ideal for window advertisements viewed during the day in direct sunlight or illuminated at night by store lighting. It can also be used for privacy and decorative glass applications as well as backlit displays. It is easy to apply and leaves no adhesive residue behind during graphic removal.
ViziPrint Impress printable window film is designed for trouble-free installation of graphics on glass surfaces and is available in three versions: ViziPrint Impress Clear UVL, a 4 mil (100?) ultra clear PET film; ViziPrint Impress Clear SEL, a 5 mil (125?) ultra clear PET film; and ViziPrint Impress White SEL, a 5 mil (125?) white PET film.
ViziPrint Impress utilizes proprietary adhesion technology that creates a strong bond in both high and low temperatures without leaving residue behind. Unlike static cling, it does not bubble and is unaffected by moisture, making it ideal for window decals, advertising, signage, and décor applications.
Since it uses a mechanical bond to gently adhere images to windows, the glass stays clear and graphics stay bright whenever ViziPrint Impress is re-positioned and re-applied.
Drytac will also be showcasing its ReTac range at ISA Sign Expo, incorporating an array of printable films with ReTac ultra removable adhesive on the back for the easy installation, repositioning and removal of temporary graphics.
ReTac Smooth is a printable matte white PVC film with ReTac ultra-removable adhesive. Thanks to its adhesive, ReTac Smooth ensures graphics can be easily installed, removed and re-positioned on any smooth surface. It is compatible with (eco) solvent, UV and latex printers and is perfect for interior wall graphic applications.
ReTac Textures is a printable, textured, matte white polymeric PVC film available in a variety of embossed finishes. The films add depth and visual appeal to static, flat graphics and are ideal for custom wall murals, interior décor, retail displays, trade show graphics, textured labels and more.
ReTac ChalkMateT is a pressure sensitive black PVC film, with a chalkboard finish and permanent or removable adhesive options. It can be applied to a variety of surfaces and is perfect for specialty applications such as chalkboard displays, restaurant menus, teaching applications and wall areas where drawings are encouraged.
WipeErase Clear overlaminating film is a 3mil/75µ durable clear PET film with a gloss, hard coat finish and pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive developed for the creation of bespoke dry-erase boards. Compatible with solvent, UV and latex printing technologies, WipeErase Clear enables print service providers to quickly and easily create custom-printed, removable, high quality, dry erase graphics that stick to virtually any smooth surface. Importantly, it can also be cleanly removed.
Applications include dry erase or planning boards, menu boards, signage, conference room walls, retail displays and much more.
WipeErase Clear also possesses excellent anti-graffiti qualities, as well as resistance to scratches, abrasions, water, solvents, stains and chemicals. This full chemical- and scratch-resistance prevents ghosting, and the premium dry erase laminate means even permanent marker can be quickly and easily removed with the use of rubbing alcohol.
Thanks to its wipe-clean laminate, WipeErase Clear is also ideal for the protection of printed graphics within environments such as children's bedrooms, education establishments, day-care centres and hospitals, as well as grocery stores, restaurants and pubs.
Within its Polar range, Drytac will be highlighting Polar® Carpet, a 4 mil (100?) printable matte white monomeric PVC film, coated on one side with a high-tack pressure sensitive, light grey solvent acrylic adhesive that is protected by a single-sided, siliconized clay coated Kraft release paper. It is recommended for use with Drytac's Emerytex® or Scuff Guard laminating films to provide slip resistance.
