High Tack Vinyls

If you need printable vinyl that will stick to plaster, brick, stone, and demanding applications like recycling bins and bike helmets, high-tack vinyl is for you. It adheres to difficult and low-energy surfaces without peeling away for several years. You can expect monomeric versions to last 3-5 years and polymeric versions to last 5-7 years outdoors.

High Tack Vinyls

High tack vinyl for the strongest bond

If you need printable vinyl that will stick to plaster, brick, stone, and demanding applications like recycling bins and bike helmets, high-tack vinyl is for you.

It adheres to difficult and low-energy surfaces without peeling away for several years. You can expect monomeric versions to last 3-5 years and polymeric versions to last 5-7 years outdoors.

Unlike standard adhesives, high tack adhesives are formulated for extreme environments, made from a solvent based adhesive that bonds with virtually any substrate.

Surfaces that are uneven, curved, or corrugated are suitable for high tack adhesive, or you can stick them to flat surfaces for a permanent bond.

Our high-tack vinyls are suitable for latex, UV-C, solvent, and eco-solvent inks. Polymeric high-tack self adhesive vinyl offers high dimensional stability, while monomeric vinyl is more cost effective for short and medium-term use.

We supply sign vinyl with clear or grey adhesives for opacity and gloss or matt finishes, as well as air escape adhesive versions. Hard-to-stick substrates like polypropylene, polycarbonate, acrylic, styrene, and ABS are no problem for them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is high-tack vinyl?

It is a permanent vinyl designed for installation on tricky surfaces like brick and low-energy plastics like polycarbonate. It has a solvent based adhesive with unique polymers that form a powerful bond.

What is high-tack vinyl made from?

Whether monomeric or polymeric, most high-tack vinyl is made from flexible PVC (polyvinyl chloride). The adhesive forms the bond, perfect for low-energy and rough surfaces.

What types of high-tack vinyl are available?

We stock monomeric and polymeric versions of these vinyls with white or grey backs, gloss and matte finishes, and air escape adhesive versions. You can also get fire-rated high-tack vinyl and blackback vinyl for absolute opacity.

What are the applications of high-tack vinyl?

It sticks to low-energy plastics, glass, uneven surfaces, dirty surfaces, rough surfaces like walls, composites, masonry, and flexible surfaces like polypropylene, making it ideal for signs, stickers, and graphics that demand longevity.

How to install high-tack vinyl

Remove the backing liner from the vinyl and clean the substrate as best as possible. Stick the centre of the vinyl to the substrate, and with a squeegee, work it into the substrate with 45-degree strokes, using a heat gun to improve flexibility and conformability. It is extremely difficult to remove once applied so be sure to double check your placement before committing!
