3 Common Types of Self-adhesive Vinyl
- Issue Time
Self-adhesive vinyl is widely used in advertising and decoration, but different application scenarios require different types. This article will specifically introduce the three common types of self-adhesive vinyl.
Self-adhesive vinyl (SAV) with full-color digital print has become very popular for a wide range of signage applications. The following is a detailed introduction of the three common types of self-adhesive vinyl.
Why you would choose this product: This is the preferred method for high-quality window graphics when your window is not tinted and has no obstructions on the inside that might prevent installation.
Materials used: Transparent polymer window graphic vinyl, The back of the transparent vinyl is coated with white glossy polymer vinyl.
Printing: Reverse Printing on clear vinyl in high resolution full digital color on HP Latex large format printers.
Application: Applied to the inside of the window so that the digitally printed graphics can be seen from the outside. When you look from the inside, you will see a white backing.
Advantages: The main reason for applying window graphics to the inside of the window is to protect the sign from vandalism and environmental damage. Viewing the graph through the glass window also provides a good gloss for the graph. Please note that this is our preferred window graphics method-but only for non-shaded windows.
Note: All window graphics are printed using the same high-resolution full-color digital print-the only difference is the type of vinyl used.
Why choose this product: If you need to apply high-quality graphics to smooth, low-energy surfaces (such as painted plasterboard walls), you can use this product. For rougher surfaces, we recommend using solid panel signs, such as foamed PVC or aluminum composite panels. It is very suitable for long-term use in business or home interior walls-and its detachability also makes it ideal for short-term promotions.
The material used: WALLTEX™-polyester material-no lamination
Printing: High-resolution full-digital color printing on HP Latex large format printers to the front side of the wall graphic vinyl
Adhesive: Removable, repositionable, and reusable
Application: We recommend using it for painting plaster walls. These walls should not be painted with "washable and abrasion resistant" or Teflon paint. Before applying WALLTEX™ murals, any freshly painted surface should be left for 40 days for degassing. The manufacturer recommends this for most smooth and clean surfaces.
Advantages: This product provides high-quality graphic images for painted gypsum board walls, which is a low-cost way to achieve large digital printing graphics. The WALLTEX™ water droplets overlap, so the connection is barely noticeable.
Why choose this product: This is a very suitable product when you want to display products on the floor of a store or office, on a concrete path, or even on the street. Floor stickers can be die-cut to get the greatest impact.
The material used: R9 material is a white monomer vinyl, which is laminated with a special transparent non-slip floor pattern monomer on top of the digital printing vinyl. Self-adhesive vinyl has an adhesive that can be removed for up to 12 months.
Digital R12 material is a white non-slip vinyl material with an aluminum structure and solvent acrylic adhesive. The Texwalk R12 material is a white non-slip textile with a solvent acrylic adhesive.
Printing: High-resolution full-digital color printing on the front side of the floor sticker vinyl on an HP Latex large format printer
Application: Directly applied to the floor
Advantages: The product provides high-quality graphic images, which can be die-cut and applied to the floor. It can be used in supermarkets, shops, offices and placed in high-traffic areas for maximum visibility. It can be self-installed and can be easily disassembled within 12 months. Very suitable for store promotions.
