Drytac Weathershield® Glossy is a 3.2 mils (80μ) polymeric calendared PVC laminating film with a gloss finish, coated on one side with a pressure sensitive, solvent acrylic adhesive that is protected by a bleached Kraft release paper coated on one side with siliconised PE. Both the film and adhesive contain UV stabilisers, which protect against UV degradation.
Weathershield high performance, polymeric PVC over-laminating films have a cross-linking solvent acrylic adhesive fortified with UV stabilisers and absorbers. They use more complex plasticisers than less expensive monomeric PVC films, resulting in significantly improved durability and weatherability as well as minimal shrinkage and odour due to plasticiser migration resistance. These over-laminates are recommended for outdoor signage or high-end indoor graphic applications where the best protection is needed.
