Convex Chrome shiny media for printing outdoor decals, vehicle lettering and sports equipment. Most shiny chrome media products are polyesters, which will not wrap around complex curves; Convex Chrome is pliable, and can be used on curved areas (not for extreme curves, such as helmets). This product will last for 5-7 years outdoors without becoming dull looking. The High-Bond adhesive that we use is one of the best adhesives for plastic, powder paint, and other low-energy surfaces. Perfect for printing on, or for cut-and-apply shiny lettering or logos for fleet vehicles, heavy equipment and signs.

We recommend Convex or Pro-Shield® laminates for complex curves and durable protection against the rigors of extreme sports and outdoor use. Convex Chrome won’t shrink; therefore Wet-Look™ 10 year UV polyester can be used as a laminate for flat applications. Wet-Look UV adds to the super-high gloss shine and is scratch resistant.

Convex Supreme UV is a 5-7 year high gloss vinyl laminate and will add 4 mils to the thickness to make it easier for the novice to apply.

GSP Software Settings: In Gerber’s Composer or Plot program, select the setting for 220 HP or 210 Deluxe-Series vinyl. We recommend Gerber’s GCT series transparent colors for the best transparent results (giving you bright, shiny decals in any color you want). Gerber’s GCS spot colors will block the chrome effect. If you are using laminates on top of the base material, you will have to determine the best cutter settings by test-cutting the finished construction. Convex Chrome is only 1.5 mils thick with 1.5 mils of adhesive; so it doesn’t take a lot of force to cut through it (without laminate).
