Pitbull™ Vinyl Media

For permanent applications only!
  • White pressure sensitive gloss vinyl.
  • Pitbull vinyl is 5 mil thick
  • Super aggressive permanent adhesive for Low Surface Energy (LSE) applications.
  • For those who don’t mind replacing plastic with their graphics.
  • Use Pitbull for rough surfaces.

If you thought Convex® High-Bond was aggressive . . . When Pitbull bites, it doesn’t let go!

This 5 mil white pressure sensitive gloss vinyl is ready for thermal and wide format ink jet printing.

For your customers who want to replace the plastics when they replace the graphics, this is the permanent bond you are looking for. Once Pitbull sets up, (24 hours), removing it is a lot like tug-of-war. This film provides undoubtedly the most permanent bond yet.

Applications include any hard to stick to surfaces including plastic, powder paint, Thermoplastic  Olefin, and textured surfaces. For UV exposure over 2 years it is recommended that a UV foil such as Gerber’s Abrasion Guard SPF, Convex Supreme UV, or Tuff Cover UV laminating film be used to prolong the life of the base film and graphic.

Compatible with Convex and Pro-Shield laminates.

For great savings, Combo Kits are available.

Overview

Pitbull Vinyl media is ready for Thermal, Solvent, UV, and Latex based printing.

Pitbull has 2 mils of the most aggressive adhesive, therefore it will make deeper contact to textured surfaces on items such as coolers and pelican cases.

For prolonged UV exposure, it is recommended that you use a UV laminate of some kind. Without UV protection, constant UV exposure may cause the material to yellow.

Recommended Overlaminates

Pro-Shield_300x156Pro-Shield Laminates: Thick, durable laminates that are flexible (but not as conformable) as Convex laminates.  Pro-Shield is more abrasion resistant than softer laminates and will conform with the aid of a heat gun.  Available in 7, 12 and New 7 mil Matte.  Pro-Shield is not recommended for helmets.

Stubbl_200x58Stubbl is a heavily textured, 18 mil thick laminate that is designed to give you more traction (or grip).  It can be used on top of graphics or directly on a surface that needs more friction.

For longer UV protection, check out Convex Supreme UV 5-7 year laminate with UV inhibitors.
