Polymeric Vinyl

Polymeric vinyl for long-term graphics

Our polymeric vinyl is for long-term use, containing long-chain plasticisers that lend additional stability and durability to the vinyl.

These long chain plasticisers make the finished product easier to handle and more resistant to cracking or flaking, especially in harsh weather conditions, making them suited to installations in extreme environments.

We offer white and greyback polymeric sign vinyl depending on your requirements for opacity. Additionally, our range includes air-release vinyl for ease of application, and we only stock reputable brands like General Formulations and Vista Primo.

It is formulated to cope with curved and complex surface profiles, so you can safely install it anywhere. Although the adhesive is permanent, graphics are removable in the short term with minimal residue.

Most vinyl is best used with laminates which can protect and enhance colours for enhanced durability.

It offers the best solution for permanent graphics. Browse the range online or get in touch with us for advice and free samples of the vinyl products that interest you. We’re here to help.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is polymeric vinyl?

It is printable vinyl formulated to survive in extremes with a permanent adhesive and long chain plasticisers to enhance durability. It is typically rated to survive 5 or more years outdoors with correct installation.

What is polymeric vinyl made from?

It is made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) with an acrylic adhesive. It is more dimensionally stable than monomeric vinyl, with long chain plasticisers to make it easier to cut and install in small applications like die-cut letters.

What are the different types of polymeric vinyl?

It is categorised by thickness, adhesive and liner. It is available with a white or grey back for different opacities, different adhesive strengths, gloss or matt finishes, and an air-release liner option, which makes installation easier.

What are the applications of polymeric vinyl?

We recommend it for long-term interior and exterior POS displays, signage, hoarding, van graphics, die-cut lettering, posters, notices, and any environments where monomeric vinyl won’t last.

How to install polymeric vinyl?

Clean the application surface and peel back the liner. Line up the vinyl and stick it to the middle of the application surface, using a squeegee to work downwards. Use long strokes at a 45-degree angle and work to the edges. Use a heat gun to make the material pliable.
