Self-Adhesive Sign Vinyl for Aqueous Printing:

UGV5
Universal self-adhesive outdoor matt vinyl
with permanent adhesive

With a grey opaque adhesive for short to medium term external prints using water based pigmented inks.

Featuring a thicker film for easier application on to flat surfaces and a solvent based permanent adhesive.

UGV5 should be applied to flat surfaces using a low tack application tape such as KleenTear 50 and at a minimum temperature of 10ºC.

Pigmented inks must be used to provide a high degree of water resistance but ink coverage of over 280% can have a detrimental affect on the water fastness of the product and may show some signs of ink bleed in heavily saturated areas.
It is important to let the print dry for at least 12 hours prior to application.

A pressure sensitive laminate will help to protect the surface against dirt and abrasion, and will increase the life expectancy of the sign to over 12 months.
Overlapping the edges of the sign by at least 6mm with the laminate will extend the outdoor life even further.
The recommended laminates are from our DigiGuard Standard range.
