Convex® Laminate for Curved Surfaces

football-lineup

Conforms to complex curves.

  • Highly conformable
  • Durable
  • Easy to apply
  • Available in 4, 8 and new 17 mil.

Use Convex Laminates when you need to apply graphics to complex curves (such as Helmets and Hard Hats). Convex is soft and conforms easily to complex curves, which makes application easy with professional results. This vinyl laminate is tough enough for the wear & tear of hard work or play.

Convex laminates are the softest (and easiest) for the average person to apply. Combinations of 4 mil GearWrap and 17 mil laminate produce the Pro Helmet thickness and ease of application your customers are looking for.

For long term UV resistance, try Convex Supreme UV laminate.

Overview

Use Convex laminates for helmets, hard hats, and high impact sports.

If you’re faced with curves that the other laminates just won’t conform to…Use Convex Laminate.

Convex is easier for novice applicators to apply.

Use Convex for your helmet graphics in order to give them the extra thickness and impact protection that they need in rough environments.

Convex Laminate is available in highly conformable 4, 8, and 17 mil.

NOTES ABOUT CUTTING: Cut-testing has been performed with the Gerber enVision™ 375 plotter only. Convex laminates can be cut with plotters that can accept thick laminate materials. We suggest using double or triple cuts (if necessary) while adjusting the knife out to the total thickness that you need to cut. The end-user is responsible for determining the exact cutting force media combination that they are using. We suggest cutting with a 45º or 60º blade.

Recommended Base Materials

Convex GearWrap is the vinyl for helmets and sport gear.

Finish: 4 or 8 mil Gloss for thermal printers and inkjets.

Applications: Convex is designed for complex curves, and GearWrap adhesive is designed for high-energy surfaces such as helmets and painted metal surfaces. Convex GearWrap is cleanly removable for up to one year. GearWrap adhesive is ideal for the process of refurbishing or relabeling helmets because clean removal will reduce labor.

Convex High-Bond is used to make decals for motocross bikes and other applications for low-energy plastic surfaces.

Finish: Gloss or Matte for Gerber and Summa thermal printers. Matte is recommended for inkjets.

Applications: Use Convex when you need an extremely pliable vinyl to cover complex curves. Convex was originally designed for helmets with GearWrap adhesive. Convex with High-Bond adhesive is designed for low-energy plastics and has 2 mil for extra grip on textured surfaces.
