Wrapping World

Today Arlon announces the global commercial launch of two new innovative products and a new technology for vehicle and fleet applications. SLX™ Cast Wrap is a premium gloss white repositionable cast film with FLITE Technology™. Designed for the single installer, this film allows for a fast wrap and superior repositionability for full and partial, vehicle and fleet applications. FLITE Technology is a lite contact system allowing graphics to float over a substrate until firm pressure is applied. It guarantees the fastest installation while ensuring long-term bond, conforming effortlessly around rivets, complex curves and deep channels. In addition to SLX Cast Wrap, Arlon has also launched a new cast overlaminate, Series 3270, which was designed to be used with SLX Cast Wrap for optimum performance of the film.

Patrick Charrier of Bazoom Studio, France, is the winner of FESPA’s World Wrap Masters Design Competition. The winning design will be applied, by the world's best vinyl installers, to a speedboat used by the Haugaard Racing Team in the 2017 World Formula 4 UIM Powerboat Championship.

Knifeless Tape Technology from 3M takes all the worry out of cutting and trimming during vehicle wrapping. This new range from 3M enables car wrappers and installers to cut through graphic film with sharp, clean lines and curves without the need for a blade, leaving a smooth finish and causing no damage to the surface of the film.

Spandex, the one-stop supplier of innovative solutions to the sign, graphics and display industries has announced the availability of the new 3M™ Wrap Overlaminate Series 8900. The series of specialty overlaminates provides graphic producers and wrappers with endless possibilities to innovate and further customise projects.

Vehicle branding specialist company RGVA has wrapped a fleet of 10 trailers with bespoke works of art as part of a campaign with Freshlinc, a Lincolnshire-based fresh, chilled and horticultural haulage company.

Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions today revealed a list of top 15 unique wrap projects created with its digitally printable and screen and cut vinyl films. Eight non-traditional wraps and seven vehicle wraps were chosen based on their noteworthy and creative use of Avery Dennison films.

Avery Dennison has released a video where it claims that its Supreme Wrapping Film is superior to other competitive car wrapping films currently on the market, considering both finished quality and the time needed to complete a wrap. Two installers from an independent wrap shop put six different brands of vehicle wrap vinyl to the test with a focus on quality and installing, as if the job were for a real customer.

Leicester-based Wigston Signs has come up with a fantastic idea to offer bespoke printed fridge wraps after a customer contacted the company with a design for a Marshall stack fridge freezer.

Musical comedian Bill Bailey surprised commuters at St Pancras International train station recently with a pop-up performance to delight visitors to the station on Roland (UK) Ltd’s LX-7 digital piano.

Following news of OKI’s ‘Print My Ride’ vehicle wrap competition Avery Dennison has announced its fourth annual ‘Wrap Like a King’ Challenge.
